What to Expect When It’s Time to Replace Your Shingle Roofing or Other Roofing

Sooner or later, everyone will need to have their shingle roofing replaced. Asphalt shingles are some of the most popular residential roofing material choices in America, due in no small part to the fact that they’re one of the least expensive roofing solutions to install. Shingles generally offer good roof protection, and aren’t that complicated to repair or replace. And architectural shingles will last you a good bit longer than traditional 3-tab shingles, too.

But as we mentioned above, no shingle roof lasts forever in Danville, VA – or anywhere else, for that matter. If you’ve never had to go through it before, you’re probably wondering what the residential roof replacement process looks like, and what you should expect. Well, here’s the good news – you’ve landed on the right page!


Shingle Roof Replacement

If you’re due for a shingle roof replacement, there’s really no good reason to wait. Trying to hold out until roofing material prices go down? Unfortunately, that’s not very likely to happen. Material prices are only expected to increase from this point forward; waiting won’t save you any money. In fact, the longer you wait, the greater the threat of even more expensive water damage threatening your home. Roofs don’t fix themselves, and the condition of your aging roofing simply won’t get any better over time. You need some attention from a skilled, local roofing contractor with plenty of experience in roof installation and roof replacement. And in Danville, the name to trust for residential roof replacement is Skywalker Roofing!

What To Expect with Your Skywalker Roofing Experience

From your initial contact with Skywalker Roofing all the way until the last nail is driven – and beyond – we promise to treat you with the utmost respect. Whenever you have a question, we’ll do our best to answer it. And if you ever have a concern, we’ll do our best to address it! We’re here to make your roof replacement experience as pleasant and pain-free as possible. Here’s what you can expect with your Skywalker Experience:


• Initial Phone Call

You’ll be greeted in a friendly, professional manner, and we’ll assign you to a personal consultant who can answer your initial questions and schedule a time to come out, provide a free roof inspection, and then sit down with you to discuss your needs and expectations.


• Meeting Our Consultant

Our consultant will arrive on time, and will conduct a thorough inspection of your roof, including video documentation. We’ll then share what we’ve discovered, take the time to answer any and all questions, and make sure you have all the information you need to make the best roofing decision for you and your family. We’ll go over the many roofing options that are available to you, and we’ll also discuss payment plans and financing options. Our consultant can also assist you with the necessary paperwork to get your project started faster.


• Your Roof Replacement

After all paperwork has been completed, you’ll receive a call from our project manager to schedule your project. On the day of install, our crews typically arrive on time between 7-8am, unless other prior arrangements have been made. Materials are normally delivered either one day before, or on the actual day of installation. Unlike the experience you may have with other roofers, Skywalker always has a representative present onsite during the install process to answer any questions and also handle any concerns. Once your roof installation is complete, our crew will conduct a thorough cleanup afterwards to make sure we leave your property just as we found it. We’ll then conduct a walk-around with you to make sure you’re pleased with the services we’ve provided, and if needed, we’ll be happy to make any necessary adjustments. Payment is expected at this point, unless financing or other prior arrangements have been made. And if your project also includes gutter installation, that will typically occur 1-2 days after the roof is complete.


• Follow Up

After everything is complete, you should receive a call from our Customer Service Manager to make sure we’ve met your expectations. At this time, please share your experience with our company! We use this feedback from our customers to make sure we’re doing all we can to make sure Skywalker Roofing is the best it can be. We’d sure appreciate it if you’d leave us a positive review, too!
