What to Expect When Getting a Roof Repair | IBEX Roof

Don’t wait until you have a roofing emergency to find and hire a professional roofer! Even if you don’t need any roofing services today or tomorrow, it’s always handy to have a roofer’s number on hand. The friendly staff at IBEX Roof can be reached at 360-836-0535 and are happy to be on standby for your roofing needs. 

Never hired a roofer before? No problem – here is what to expect when hiring for a roof repair.

Finding the Right Roofer

Even if a roofing problem seems small, you’ll want to find someone who knows what they’re doing. Otherwise, what could have been a small repair may turn into a more costly roofing issue! When looking for a roofer, make sure to find someone who is local and has the right certifications and business licenses. Don’t be afraid to ask for references and reviews, and always ask for proof of bond and insurance.

Once you’ve found the right roofer for the job, they will inspect your roof and provide a quote for your roof repair. Ideally, you will get an itemized estimate so that you know what the scope of roof work needs to be done to your home.

Scheduling Your Roof Repair

Roof repairs range from replacing a few missing shingles to replacing rusty flashing to re-sealing your chimney, skylights, or vents. You likely won’t need to wait for us to order parts or materials as you would during a roof replacement, and most repairs can be finished in less than a day. Most roofers don’t need homeowners to be present during a repair. In fact, you may prefer to schedule your roof repair during a time you’re not home to avoid any loud noises. 

What to Expect from IBEX Roof

IBEX Roof has our professional practice down to a science. If you are having an issue with your roof, call our office at 360-836-0535 to let us know what the problem is. From there, we will come and perform a thorough inspection to assess the situation. We then will give you an estimate and let you know exactly what type of works needs to be done; it’s very important to us for our customers to be on the same page as us! If there is anything we need from you, we will also let you know.

Remember – not all roofing issues can be seen from the ground and by the time you notice there’s a problem, it could have been there for a while. That’s why we recommend getting annual inspections for your roof and gutter system, especially if your roof is 10+ years old. Not only does this help your roof last longer, but it will also save you money in the long term!
