The difference between a roofer and a contractor

What if your renovation involves your roof and the interior of your home?

Most roofers tend to work on…well…roofs. Contractors can handle larger projects, but often focus on interior renovations.

At Owyhee Roofing, we are primarily a roofing company, however we do contracts for some home repairs as well. We have the experience to take on a broader scope of work.

Read on to explore the difference between a roofer and a contractor, and why you might need a two-in-one solution.

Types of Roofing Repairs

Leaks can occur due to damaged or missing shingles, improper installation, or deteriorating flashing. Roofers are skilled at identifying the source of the leak and making the necessary repairs to prevent further damage. They may need to replace damaged shingles, seal gaps, or reinstall flashing to ensure a watertight seal. Additionally, roofers can handle repairs related to sagging roofs, damaged gutters, or deteriorating chimneys.

The Importance of Regular Roof Maintenance

Regular roof maintenance is crucial to prolonging the lifespan of your roof and preventing costly repairs. Roofers recommend scheduling annual inspections to identify any potential issues early on. During these inspections, roofers will assess the condition of the roof, check for leaks, inspect flashing and gutters, and ensure that the roof is properly ventilated.

The Role of Contractors in Home Renovations

Contractors manage all aspects of the project. We work closely with homeowners to understand their vision, develop a design plan, and create a budget. Contractors coordinate with various subcontractors such as electricians, plumbers, and carpenters to ensure that the renovation is executed seamlessly. We handle permits, inspections, and ensure that the project adheres to building codes and regulations.

How to Find Reliable Roofers and Contractors

Finding reliable roofers and contractors is crucial to ensure that your roofing repairs and home renovations are handled professionally and efficiently. Here are some tips to help you find the right professionals:

  • Research:

    Start by researching local roofers and contractors in your area. Look for companies with a solid reputation and positive customer reviews. Check their websites, social media profiles, and online directories to gather information about their services and experience.

  • Ask for Recommendations:

    Reach out to friends, family, or colleagues who have recently had roofing repairs or renovations done. Ask for their recommendations and inquire about their experience working with the professionals they hired.

  • Check Licenses and Insurance:

    Ensure that the roofers and contractors you consider hiring are licensed and insured. This provides protection for both parties in case of accidents or damages during the project.

  • Interview and Check References:

    Before finalizing your decision, schedule interviews with the potential roofers or contractors. Ask about their experience, previous projects, and request references. Reach out to these references to get insight into the quality of their work and professionalism.

  • Sign a Detailed Contract:

    Once you have chosen a roofer or contractor, ensure that you have a detailed contract in place. The contract should outline the scope of work, project timeline, payment terms, and any warranties or guarantees provided.

“I worked with Owyhee Roofing after getting an outrageous estimate on replacing my roof from someone else. They were responsive within one day, and got to work on estimating and scheduling right away. My roof looks beautiful. I worked with Austin and his team. They were professional, punctual, and very respectful of the property and the clean-up afterward. Highly recommend!”
