Once you find a trusted roofing company like Platinum Exteriors NW, then you can focus on the priorities for your roofing project. Local Memphis explores some of these priorities in a recent article titled “Angie’s List: Roof Repair.” The author writes, “Replacing a roof is expensive. It could run you $10-20,000 or more. Regular inspections can help you protect your investment, but it is still possible to develop a leak. ‘The two main causes of leaks are generally an elevation change – valleys, walls, ceilings, like that on the roof – and then where non-like materials connect, so your pipe boots, your skylights, your flashing and your wall flashings,’ roofing professional Justin Vorbroker said. While you can’t do anything about the elevation changes, you can make sure that you keep your roof clear of debris from overhanging trees and that your gutter system is in good condition… Even if you do everything right, a storm or an accident could require you to hire a professional. Find three local companies with solid reputations and ask for detailed quotes. Make sure you study each one carefully so you understand the scope of all three bids.”
