How to Take the Right Approach to Roof Replacement Ohio
If you’re a homeowner or commercial property owner, manager, or a decision-maker for an HOA board, you may already know that roof replacement cost can be significant, especially if your roof problem isn’t covered by insurance, as it would be from severe storm damage or other accidental damage beyond your control. But either way, you want your new roof to be installed properly with materials that will last, and to have a style and color that suits your distinctive preferences. Elite Roofing & Construction offers shingle and metal roofing options and only uses products from top-quality manufacturers, ensuring property owners the most reliable roofing types, products, and styles. Shingle roofing and metal roofing are among the most popular types of roofing because of their great looks and longevity.
HOW OHIO HOMEOWNERS CHOOSE A ROOFING CONTRACTOR
One of the first things a property owner must do when approaching a roof replacement project is to select a reliable, experienced Hillsboro, or Cincinnati roof replacement contractor. Going with a local contractor, or at least one located in close proximity to your central or southeast Ohio community, is really important, but so are a number of other considerations:
DOES THE ROOFING CONTRACTOR POSSESS A BUSINESS LICENSE?
Highland County as well as Fayette, Ross, Pike, Adams, Brown and Clinton County residents and business owners recognize that a contractor should, as a most basic qualification, hold a business license. General contractors don’t have to get a state license to perform roof replacement Ohio, but they need to be licensed with local authorities, in many cities, such as Columbus OH for example. Wherever you reside, check into the credentials of the contractor you seek to hire. Elite Roofing & Construction meets the requirements needed.
IS THE CONTRACTOR REGISTERED WITH
THE STATE OF OHIO?
This may also be a local requirement of a roofing contractor. For instance, for Cincinnati roof replacement, the City of Cincinnati requires all contractors performing work in the city limits, to maintain a current contractor registration, which must be renewed on an annual basis, per the City of Cincinnati Municipal Code Chapter 1106 ordinance 42-2011.
DOES THE CONTRACTOR CARRY LIABILITY INSURANCE, IN CASE THERE’S AN ACCIDENT ON THE JOB SITE?
In basic terms, liability insurance protects companies like Elite Roofing in the event the home incurs accidental property damage, or if someone suffers personal injury resulting in a lawsuit emerges. Homeowners understand that accidents can happen. That’s why they prefer to work with roofers who have general liability insurance to cover the costs of those accidents.
IS THE ROOFING COMPANY BONDED?
When selecting a professional roofer, you always want to see that the roofing contractor is bonded for your protection. A bond, also known as a surety bond, is a legal contract that protects one party against monetary loss if the second party fails to perform the agreed task.
IS THE CONTRACTOR PREPARED TO GIVE
YOU AN ESTIMATE IN WRITING?
If the contractor won’t put the details of their job and what it will cost in writing, Ohio property owners know to immediately be suspicious!
DOES THE LOCAL ROOFING
CONTRACTOR HAVE GOOD RATINGS AND REVIEWS ONLINE?
Property owners in central and southwest Ohio know how indicative high ratings and positive reviews are when it comes to choosing a roofing contractor. They check sources like the Better Business Bureau, Facebook ratings, Google rating, and online resources to see what customers are saying about the work performed by the contractor they are considering.
CAN THE CONTRACTOR ASSIST WITH FINANCING
A BIG ROOFING JOB?
Home Improvement loans are more accessible than ever and lenders know that property owners usually have good to excellent credit. But not all homeowners know all the sources for low rate, affordable financing. Contractors who offer a seamless financing solution add yet another benefit to their customers. Elite Roofing & Construction offers easy financing through its partners – ProFund and EnerBank.

SO, WHAT’S INVOLVED IN A ROOF
As a roofing professional, it’s essential to understand the basic steps of replacing a roof. Every company has its own approach to roofing depending on location and client, but we will look at a typical shingle Cincinnati roof replacement.
A ROOF INSPECTION PRECEDES A ROOF REPLACEMENT
A roof inspection report is a detailed document which includes photographic evidence of the roof conditions. The report accurately provides measurements and diagrams assessing the total area of your roof. Advice is provided on any issues that need repair in the short-term and what to look out for in the near future. The age of your roof, if not known by the property owner, will be estimated and Elite Roofing & Construction will suggest when it is time to consider a roof replacement.
Roof measurements and pitch detection
Ongoing roof maintenance recommendations
Photographs of problem areas
Diagnostic description of damage
Preliminary estimate for roof repairs or replacement
Supportive documentation for insurance claim, if applicable

They do not cover the cost of repair or replacement if your roof issues were caused by severe weather, other acts of nature, or by accident. That’s where your homeowners insurance comes in.
