FAQs About Roofing
Does the thought of roof repairs leave you reeling? Check out some of the most frequently asked questions about roofing as a starting point to your ideal roof. Our roofing FAQs don’t stop here – our expert roofers in Orlando, Florida are here to answer any roofing questions you may have!
Do your roofers give free estimates?
Yes! A prompt response with no cost and no obligation.
What is included in a free estimate?
The works! Roof layout drawings, measurements of your roof, photos of its surface, roof material warranties, insurance certificates, specifications, and roof material samples put together neatly in a binder.
What roofing systems does WeatherShield Roofing Group offer?
We renovate existing metal, EPDM, modified bitumen, tar & gravel, TPO, and PVC roofing. We also replace roofs that are beyond restoration, and install roofing systems on newly constructed properties.
How long will roof replacement take?
Through our free estimate and evaluation of your roof, we will be able to better determine how long roof replacement will take. Roofs that are large, in need of extra repairs, or roofs being remodeled with specialty may require more time to complete. However, we recognize the inconvenience of having your typical business routine interrupted, and we work quickly and efficiently to restore your roof and allow you to resume your routine. We never compromise on quality – so you may be sure our rapid repairs carry the standard of excellence that is unique to WeatherShield Roofing Group.
Do I have to close my business while my roof is being remodeled?
No! We are able to schedule our work at the convenience of you and your employees to minimize interruption. To avoid conflict in heavy traffic areas, we sometimes work on weekends to ensure your business is able to continue running smoothly.
Can my roof be repaired instead of replaced?
Often times, yes! Repair or replacement is determined by the extent of the damage to your roof and the type of roofing material in use. Our professionals ensure the most cost efficient method of replacement if it is an option.
Does your Elastomeric coating actually save on utility costs?
Absolutely! This white membrane coating is highly reflective, allowing it to prevent heat from the sun to enter your building. This will drastically reduce the heat that would normally pass through the roof surface. This will cut the amount of electricity used, saving money on utilities and extending the life of your air conditioning units. WeatherShield Roofing Group is a participating energy conservation contractor for FPL, OUC, and Progress Energy (DUKE) energy providers. If your energy comes from these providers, you may be eligible for a significant rebate after applying our coating. You could also be eligible for tax credits from the EPA’s Energy Star program.
Are warranties available for your materials and workmanship?
Yes! Typically, both WeatherShield and the manufacturer of your product back warranties for at least ten years at no additional cost. In the off chance that a leak does occur, WeatherShield usually responds within 24 hours, weather permitting. Our warranties are NOT prorated – you will not have to pay for any repairs covered under warranty.
Is WeatherShield licensed and insured?
Yes! We are a Florida State Certified Roofing Contractor, #CCC1329252. Our insurance coverage exceeds Florida State requirements for liability and worker’s compensation.
Is WeatherShield a reputable company?
Yes! We have been protecting roofs in Central Florida under the same ownership since 1995. Ask any of our local references from the hundreds of jobs that we have completed, or check out our customer testimonials for reliable, honest opinions of our roofing services.
My roof is leaking/damaged. Does it need to be replaced?
Probably not! A professional WeatherShield inspector will examine your roof and determine the most cost-efficient solution to stop leaks or repair damage. WeatherShield is further qualified to replace your roof if it is too badly deteriorated.
Do I need a permit to fix my roof?
This is determined by the type of roof you have, what type of work is being done to the roof, and the proximity of your building to surrounding structures. WeatherShield handles obtaining the permit and ensures compliance will all applicable building codes.
