When we get up on steep roofs, we are forever throwing down Frisbees, baseballs, and basketballs. People just don’t want to risk it, and I don’t blame them. We have special shoes and take extra precautions whenever we send our guys up on a steep roof. We are actually licensed and insured to do such work. But you shouldn’t assume everyone is.
Climbing a steep roof is almost like climbing a mountain. You might follow a canyon up and make a couple of switchbacks to work your way up. It might take longer to get there, but it’s safer. That’s what Roof Life of Oregon does on your steep roof. We look at the style of your roof and strategically plan. Don’t be surprised if we get out our binoculars and spend twenty minutes looking at the components of your roof. We promise we aren’t staring at your windows!
When our technicians are ready to work on your roof, we anchor into your home and have a full safety harness on them. We follow all the requirements to keep that technician safe.
The most important thing you can do when hiring a contractor for your steep roof is to make sure they are insured. The likelihood of injury is high and it won’t be a small injury- it’ll be a big one. We have a liability policy that exceeds anything that could possibly happen so you as a homeowner can feel safe and secure.
Don’t assume everyone has that coverage. Not everyone is licensed for your protection. I’ve heard it time and again: “Oh, he was such a nice guy and I just thought he’d be insured.” Go to the Oregon State Contractor’s Board and put in a business’s name or license number and it pulls up everything you need to have peace of mind. You’ll find Roof Life of Oregon there and that way you’ll know we have your best interest in mind.
If you have a steep roof, don’t get up there yourself. Call us and get us out there to make sure your roof looks good, works right, and lasts longer.
