Here at Lifetime Roofing, we believe that it shouldn’t be difficult to obtain the services that you need to keep your roof in the best possible condition. Your roof is an important component of the building, as it helps to protect the interior of the building from damage caused by the elements. Implementing the best possible services can go a long way toward keeping your roof in good condition and protecting your building.
Our first interaction with you as a customer is when you call into our office and request a free estimate. At this time, we ask questions to make sure we are the right fit for you and also that you are a fit for our roofing services. Some of the information that we require is your name, address, phone number, and email. We will also need to know what type of roof you currently have, as well as what type you would like to replace it with. It is important to know how long you plan on staying in your home. If you are moving in the next few months, you might not want to put as much money into your home compared to if you were planning on staying for the next 30 years. The roof in a 30-year investment would include higher quality materials as well as an extended manufacturer’s warranty. If you are working with insurance, we can help you to understand your claim paperwork and make sure that you are getting what is deserved to you. We need to know if you are wanting financing to help you upgrade your roof to luxury or would like to take advantage of no payment and no interest for 12 months. It is our preference to meet with you and explain the options you have. Our meeting takes about an hour from when we arrive to when we leave you with a proposal listing your options.
Once you have called into our office, we pass your information on to one of our project managers. They will contact you and schedule a time to meet with you for your roof consultation. This meeting is important because it is all about you. Our project manager will knock on your door and give you some information before looking at your roof. He/she will take 15-20 minutes inspecting your roof, noting its condition, and any problems to discuss with you. He/she will take another 15-20 minutes to prepare a proposal with a few options based on the information you provided to the office. He/she will then talk with you a little more in depth about your wants, needs, and expectations, and can edit your proposal on the spot to reflect those expectations. Sometimes an understanding can be reached during this initial appointment, but if not, your project manager will follow up with you a few times in the weeks to follow.
When you come to an agreement with your project manager, he goes to work for you. He /she collects necessary information from your home or building to prepare for work to begin. He/she does this so that communication is uninterrupted between you, our office, and our installers. They turn this information into the office and your job is scheduled with one of our crews and materials are ordered. Our operations team will be in contact with you, keeping you up to date about the schedule because there are occasions where we have conflicts with weather and other factors that affect our installer’s schedule. Once our installation crew is on site, they will take care to protect your personal property, moving things like patio furniture you haven’t already moved and laying tarps to protect shrubbery. Our crews are all trained in manufacturer installation manuals and have the knowledge and expertise in what they do. We have weekly meetings to go over safety, installation, and procedural items with our installers to ensure everyone is on par with what you are expecting from a professional roofing company. When the work is completed, our operations management team inspects the work with the crew foreman to verify quality work was performed.
Good news! At this point you have a beautiful roof! Your project manager will schedule with you to review the job. He/she will make sure there is nothing you are concerned about. He/she makes sure there is no left-over debris from the job. After you have made the final payment, you will receive your warranty paperwork from the manufacturer in about 3 weeks via mail.

Shingles are often made from asphalt or, occasionally, wood. They are commonly used on roofs that have a pitch of less than 3/12. One of the major benefits of shingles is that they are incredibly customizable, which allows you to obtain whatever appearance you desire for your roof. They tend to come with rather easy installation, which often minimizes the initial expense of a shingle roof. Shingles are lightweight materials, which generally reduces the need for additional supports. Read More>>
Metal roofs tend to have the longest lifespan, because metal is an incredibly durable material. However, it is vital that the metal material is installed correctly, as seams may cause the roof to become susceptible to leaks that can damage the interior of the building. Metal roofs often require less maintenance than other materials, due to their extreme durability. In addition, metal is often a poor conductor, which can help to reduce energy expenses. Read More>>
TPO is a particularly resilient material that does not degrade easily. This is incredibly important when it comes to the material that you use for a flat roof. The roof is constantly exposed to sunlight and other damage from the elements. In order to ensure that your roof remains effective, you will need to choose a durable material for your roof. TPO is also a reflective surface, which can go a long way toward reducing your energy expenses and keeping your building at a comfortable temperature. Read More>>
PVC material often costs more money than other materials, but can provide many benefits to the surface of the roof. PVC is resistant to cracking and damage caused by impact. Their resistance to damage results in lower maintenance-related expenses. In addition, PVC is a reflective surface that helps to reflect UV rays from the sun. This can go a long way toward making the building more energy efficient and lowering your related energy expenses. Though PVC may have a higher initial cost, it often pays for itself in reduced energy and maintenance expenses.
EPDM rubber is a material that is often used for various seals, such as those in windows or weather proofing. This material is also used for flat roofs. It is a durable and inexpensive material, which can make it a great method for a flat roof’s material. When you have a flat roof, it can be difficult to identify the ideal material for your roof. The right material will go a long way toward reducing expenses and keeping your building in good condition.
Wood used to be the most commonly used material for roofs, though that has changed as technology has improved. Wood often requires more maintenance than other roof types and is used primarily for the unique, beautiful appearance that it provides. Ensure that you only obtain the best quality wood-related roofing services to keep your roof in the best possible condition. If you are unsure if a wood roof is the best fit for your home, contact our experienced professionals today! Read More>>
