Roofing contractors can add dormers to your roof
If you want more light and usable space in your attic, you can hire a Concord, NC roofing contractor to install some dormers. By adding windows and space to an attic, dormers can transform it from a dark, cramped, stuffy space fit only for storage to… at the very least, a brighter space with better ventilation where taller people will be able to move about more without hitting their heads on the ceiling. An attic with dormers makes a decent extra bedroom. And since it’s less likely to overheat in the summer, it will put less stress on your roof.
The downside to dormers is the same one that skylights, chimneys or any other break in the roof have — they increase the risk of leaks and drafts. This is why you need a professional roofing contractor to install them. You may also need a permit to do the work. The roof of the dormer and the wall facing the outside should be consistent in style with the rest of your roof and house.
Finding a roofing contractor to install dormers
Try to find a local Charlotte, NC contractor with a reputation for getting the job done well, on time and within the agreed-upon estimate. A local, family-run roofing contractor depends on good word of mouth and repeat business in the area. And of course you should check all the contractors for licenses, permits and insurance, and see if they are a in any professional associations.
Once you have a list of contractors, ask your neighbors, friends and family who live in the area for recommendations. Try to get bids from at least six roofing contractors, and ask them for details on the work, materials, estimated cost and terms of payment. If in doubt, pick one of the bids in the middle. If a bid seems too low, you should be suspicious of it.
