How do I hire a professional roofing contractor?
Your roof is one of the most vulnerable parts of your building. Its
function is to help keep your building safe. Exposure to the elements
can quickly weaken it, causing leaks, and other problems. Selecting a
roofing company is like searching for a good mechanic. You need to be
able to trust that they won’t take advantage of you. If you don’t know a lot
about roofing, how are you going to evaluate the quality of work
A warranty on your new roof is important, and it is doubly important
for you to understand exactly what is covered and not covered. You
might have two warranties. One from the roofing company and one for
the materials used on the roof. Does the roofing company handle the
warranty work? Do they sub-contract it out? If you are looking for
metal roofing in Dallas TX look no further than Bronco Commercial
Are there different types of metal roofs?
There are five different types of metal roofs.
Each material has its pros and cons. Copper is soft, has a low melting
point and is very long lasting. Zinc, has the lowest melting point, is
resistant to weathering and rust and lasts an extremely long time.
With steel, there are three types: galvanized, weathering steel, and
galvalume. Aluminum is resistant to salt water corrosion and is long
lasting. Tin was often used before World War II and is typically no longer
used. Today a “tin” roof typically refers to galvanized steel.
Choosing the right material for your roof depends on several things.
Where are you building? The climate is a big consideration. If you
live in a coastal region, aluminum roofing would be great because of
its resistance corrosion of the sea air. Steel is most commonly used
on commercial buildings because it is economical.
If you are looking for metal roofing in Dallas TX here are a few tips
before you hire a company:

about applicable warranties.

there have been any complaints filed against the company and what
their rating is.
