Purchasing a new roof can be a confusing, even scary experience for a homeowner. Let us help reduce your worries. Our “Contractor Insights” feature brings you fast, down-to-earth responses to key areas of roofing every homeowner should know. This month we’re featuring Erika Smith, founder and owner of The Roofing Revolution out of Denver, Colorado, to share her insights with you.
Q: What are some of the top things homeowners should ask a roofer about when looking for a replacement roof?
A: Start by inquiring about the roofing company’s process from start to finish. Get a high level understanding and ask detailed questions along the way. For example:
Q: Why should homeowners seriously consider composite roofing when looking for a roof?
A: A composite roof can transform the look of a home, especially if a qualified construction expert is advising on the project and options.

A: About 85% of the work we perform is through an insurance claim. I always recommend that a property owner contact a qualified contractor to assess the damage before filing an insurance claim. Get a professional to give you an assessment. After you know what you’re dealing with, then contact your policyholder and ask the following questions:
Q: Why has your company chosen to recommend DaVinci composite roofing to your customers?
A: We recommend DaVinci to property owners who are looking for a unique aesthetic that can increase the curb appeal of their homes. There are so many profiles, installation techniques and color variations to choose from, that homeowners gain a customized roof each time. The DaVinci team is supportive of contractors and homeowners, stands behind their warranty, and is very communicative. I’m proud to be associated with the DaVinci team.
