When looking for roofing contractors in Lansing or throughout the Mid-Michigan area you need to think about three things: trust, skill, and cost. When assessing a contractor’s skill you should review their installation techniques, material selection standards, and most of all their ratings and reviews. When it comes to assessing their trustworthiness, you might look at online reviews, their accreditations, or reach out to a prior customer and ask them about their experience regarding quotes, timelines, and followthrough.
If cost is a major concern when selecting your contractor do not select the first low bid without considering both skill and trust. You might be getting an inexperienced or even a dishonest roofing contractor that has to underbid to get jobs. Either of these contractors will end up costing you more money than if you were to select a solid roofing contractor from the start. When you have narrowed the selection of contractors, make sure the contractor can tell you where your roofing costs come from and takes your price range seriously.
Hiring a Roofing Contractor? What You Need To Know.
If you’re looking for a commercial or residential roofing contractor, here’s what you need to know when it comes to maintenance, repairs, replacements and new roof installations:
- Preventative Maintenance
Different roofing designs and materials require different levels of maintenance. While slate and metal roofs are more expensive, they require very little maintenance if installed correctly. On the other hand, cedar shake roofs, although not inexpensive, need routine maintenance to keep watertight. Asphalt roofs, if installed by a craftsman, will need little upkeep and are most likely the most affordable option.
- Roof Repairs
When it comes to repairs there are several tale-tell signs you should take into consideration. Harsh storms, leaks, or visual valleys could mean the roof needs repair. It may be as simple as replacing some shingles or patching a small leak but any sign that your roof is failing requires a professional to assess the situation before it gets worse. Our Technicians can evaluate your roof for free and give you options on what maintenance or repairs need to be done.
- Roof Replacements
Replacing an aged or structurally unsound roof can be a costly endeavor. First and foremost, if you think your roof needs to be replaced contact a roofing specialist to assess the situation. Beware of contractors that recommend this option before properly inspecting your roof. There are predatory companies that will always jump to this conclusion, even if your roof is still structurally sound and merely needs repair.
- New Roof Installations
If you’re building a new home or commercial building and want the perfect roof to protect and enhance the look of your new project, there are few things to consider.
- First is its function, If the roof doesn’t work for the structure, then no matter how good looking it is it will fail you.
- Second is the roofing contractor’s past performance and reputation.
- Finally, is the initial quote and overall cost. It’s important to make sure your quote looks accurate and is affordable.

Small storefronts usually have very different needs than large apartment buildings or hotels. This is one reason you should work with a knowledgeable roofing contractor. One that understands the commercial standards, techniques, and commercial codes for your area. Another consideration is whether the contractor can handle the scale of the project by having the manpower and machinery available to properly start and finish the project without undue time delays or extra unforeseen costs.
