This is not a do-it-yourself project
If your Charlotte roof needs repair — even if the work looks fairly simple, a matter of reattaching loose shingles — call roof repair contractors to do it. Do not try to do it yourself. If there happens to be an unexpected gust of wind or wet spot on the roof, you could easily lose your footing and your roof does not have a guardrail. A roof is also more complicated than it appears, and amateur repairs (in addition to voiding the warranty) may make things worse and will probably need to be redone later.
Roof repair contractors have learned how to walk on a sloping roof without falling. They know precisely how your roof is put together and how to repair it, laying down the felt before the roofing and covering exposed nailheads to protect them from rust and seepage. If you can, try to get the installers who built the roof to do the repairs.
Find a good local roof repair contractor
The best Concord, NC roof repair contractors offer free estimates and do the job on without damaging your property, leaving debris around or announcing unexpected cost overruns. Try to find one that does most of its work in your area. A local residential roofer lives or dies by its reputation within the community. Another advantage of a small, local business is that if you do have a complaint, you should be able to take it directly to someone who can address it.
This doesn’t mean you should pick just any contractors in North Carolina. Ask other people you know which roof repair contractors they would recommend. Make a point of asking about their business license and liability listing, and their reputation among other contractors. Check their BBB listing too. Never choose a roof repair contractor that shows up on your doorstep after a storm and offers to inspect your roof for you, tries to pressure you into paying the bulk of the bill up front or asks you to pay a bidding fee.
