Johnson Construction Services: Residential Roofing
Johnson Construction can handle all residential roofing projects, from repairs necessitated by severe weather damage to replacement of an entire roof that is past its useful life. Johnson Construction Company serves the Toledo area including Perrysburg, Cleveland, Oregon, Columbus, Maumee, Lima, Bowling Green, Sylvania and Findlay.
The customer's first step is to contact the roofing contractor for a free no-obligation inspection. The inspector will look at the roof surface as well as the areas not visible from the ground. If the roofing job is covered by insurance, the inspector can be at the home when the insurance adjuster is present to protect the homeowner's interests in seeing that his or her roof is restored to its proper condition.
The inspector will help the customer decide between repair and replacement. At some point, the accumulating costs of constant repairs may make replacement the cheaper option.
The inspector will look at the entire roofing system. This includes roof ventilation, roof windows, skylights, soffit, fascia and the water removal system. These components must be installed properly and tied into the roof surface to protect against leaks.
If the roof is being replaced, the homeowner will need to choose the type of roofing material. Johnson Construction installs roofing of all types, including asphalt shingles, slate, wood shake, clay tile, PVC and metal. They can give homeowners the pros and cons of each type of material as well as the range of styles and prices.
Before the roofing project begins, the project manager will explain the work that is going to be done and answer any questions the customer may have. Once satisfied, the homeowner may want to leave the home while the work is done in order to avoid the noise. Crews will remove and dispose of old roofing materials, keeping the yard clean and free from debris and nails during the project.
For most residential roofing projects, the work will be completed in one or two days. When the work is done, the crew will perform a final clean-up of the yard. The project manager and an operations manager will survey the completed work to ensure that the job was done right and that the customer is satisfied. A new roof can improve a home's visual appeal and help to retain its resale value.
