What to Expect From Your Roofing Installation

When you contract with Williams Roofing to install or repair your roof, we believe we should provide you with a realistic expectation of how the job will progress and be performed.  Certainly not all jobs are the same, and timelines can vary based on a number of conditions such as the intricacies of the job, availability of materials and weather.

We are very sensitive to your need and desire to complete our work as quickly as possible, without compromising the job's quality and positive outcome.  Below is a timeline of a typical roofing project; chronologically defining each of the steps we take from start to finish.

From Start To Finish

Step 1:  The Call 
Our work starts with you contacting us about your roofing project.  We'll gather information over the phone, and then one of our estimators will make an appointment for an on-site visit.

Step 2:  The On-Site Visit 
One of our expert estimators will visit your property to evaluate the scope of work. While in some cases your attendance is not required, meeting you at the project site allows us to show samples and discuss repair and/or installation options. We’ll also be able to assess interior conditions and needs.

Step 3:  The Proposal 
From our on-site visit, our estimator will determine the labor and material needs, and provide a complete, detailed written proposal including warranty information for your review.

Step 4:  The Approval 
Upon review of our proposal, we urge you to contact us with any questions you have. 
Our estimators can meet with you personally or discuss your concerns over the phone. When you find the terms and conditions to be acceptable, simply sign the proposal and mail it back to us.

Step 5:  Confirmation 
When we receive the signed proposal, we will contact you to arrange scheduling and discuss details such as color selections and special concerns. We also contact your community’s building department to obtain necessary permits and schedule required inspections.

Step 6:  The Job Begins 
First, we evaluate existing conditions and take necessary precautions to protect your home and property. Then, we remove your old roof. After it is removed, we clean the grounds and gutters, plus perform a magnetic sweep around the perimeter of your property to remove any loose metal and nails. We also inspect the existing roof deck for dry rot or termite damage and report findings to you.

Step 7:  New Roof Installation 
A representative from your community’s building department does an inspection (if required) of your existing roof deck to confirm that it is sound and that all required repairs have been made. After approval we install your new roof utilizing the finest materials and workmanship. Upon completion, we clean the grounds and restore your property to its original condition.

Step 8:  Completion 
When we complete your roof to our exacting standards, we contact the building department for a required final on-site inspection. When they provide final approval, you may keep the signed permit for your records. Our job is done when you are completely satisfied.
