One factor of a roof replacement that you may fail to think about is safety. If you hire a company to do the work, you trust they know what they are doing, right? For the most part, this is true. Many companies that offer roofing services fully understand their craft. No two companies are alike, however. At RoofPRO, we make safety a priority. Not just for our sake - but for yours as well.
When completing any sort of roofing project, our roofers know the importance of following rules and guidelines to ensure safety. We strongly emphasize training and individual certification in all of our roofers. If you hire an uncertified roofer, or a “guy with a truck” as we say, you will not receive the same level of service -- period. Hiring a professional company, like RoofPRO, means that we have protocols in place to ensure that our work is done safely and efficiently.
When we set up for a job, we will ask for your help. The best way to help us is to clear the area. If we are working on a roof replacement, we will need a large space to keep old roofing materials and other equipment. Your lawn is usually the best bet. By clearing it of debris, furniture, or other lawn toys, you will help us have a safe, accessible space to store items. If you have a pet that needs to go outside, make arrangements before the project begins.
While many of our safety measures come from years of training, experience, and certification, here are some guidelines we are sure to follow to ensure both our safety and yours:
- Never work on a wet roof
- Keep your work area as clean as possible
- Wear safe footwear
- Always wear safety equipment
- Always secure your ladder
- Use your ladder correctly
- Never touch electrical wires
Safety Matters in a Roof Installation
When you are on the receiving end of a roof installation, it is extremely important that your roofers care about safety. Roofers who know how to implement safety measures are more likely to take their project seriously. They won’t rush to get things done and leave you with inferior results. When we talk about safety, however, it isn’t just about preventing injuries. All of our roofers at RoofPRO carry insurance that protects our workers, our company, and YOU in the event of any accidents. If we can refer back to the “guy with a truck” we mentioned earlier, keep in mind that, being uncertified, he is not required to carry insurance. If an issue occurs, you could end up paying more money that you had hoped.
We know you have choices when you hire someone for your roofing projects, and we hope that by now you’ll see that RoofPRO is the top choice. Our roofers are experienced and friendly, and we will communicate with you every single step of the way. Before we even begin working together, we would be happy to answer questions and provide you with a free estimate.
