1. Consultation
The obvious first step to any home service process is speaking with the contractor. During this step, you will be providing any applicable information and can expect to answer questions as to your interpretation of your roof’s condition and needs. This will give your contractor a general idea on what to expect upon arrival.

2. Evaluation

This is the point where the contractor arrives to assess the conditions of the roof. Never fear, AJ Wells Roofing Contractors offers free evaluation done in the hands of licensed and insured professionals. The contractor will get onto the roof to evaluate the situation from clear and close view. They may take photographs to bring to you so you can see what they have seen while on the roof.

4. Hiring
It’s time to get down to business! Before making this commitment, be sure that you have done your research. In order to acquire a satisfactory result, look into the contractor’s reputation. For example, AJ Wells Roofing Contractors boasts over 40 years of experience in the roofing field, certified roofers, and quality workmanship that is known throughout the Jacksonville, FL community.

5. Preparation
You’ve been through the processes of having your roof inspected, receiving an estimate, and have decided on a trusted contractor for the job. Now, we’ve entered the preparation phase. With the ball rolling and your roof replacement services on their way, you should do your fair part in preparing. Outside, gather objects like potted plants, outdoor furniture, and any other stray debris or materials from the yard. Put them in a safe place where no debris can fall from the roof onto them. Inside, take down wall hanging objects such as pictures, plaques, shelves, and other wall furnishings that may fall and become damaged during the roof replacement. With the activity that will be going on while the services are being performed, the walls may vibrate and such objects are subject to falling.

The roofers will have preparation of their own to accomplish. You can expect that materials will be delivered to your home or commercial establishment. In fact, the job materials may actually be delivered straight up onto the roof! This will assist the contractors in readiness when it comes time for the next step, the roof replacement.

6. Installation
The stage where the activity begins. During your roof installation, roofers will be working hard and roofing is dangerous work, so it is important to not distract the workers at this stage. Installation should take a few days to complete. However, the materials must be dry during this process in order to be properly installed. This could potentially mean some delays in the event of unfavorable weather conditions. Your contractor will protect any vulnerable areas of your establishment from damage in such events.

7. Completion
Upon completion of your roof, the contractors will be responsible for cleaning up afterwards. They will remove all debris from the premises, leaving your property in the same condition they arrived to. This is your time to inspect that the job has been done correctly. With AJ Wells’ 100% Satisfaction Guarantee, the job is not through until you are satisfied! Once everything is finished to your liking, the job is deemed complete and it is time to pay for the services. Enjoy your newly replaced roof with confidence!
