Metal Roofing Contractor Finished Project

As a metal roofing contractor Northface Construction takes pride in the drastic changes in appearance and performance that we can provide to our clients.

These clients were referred to us and it was a great opportunity to work with some wonderful people.  Upon our first meeting it was established that the client was highly interested in doing a type of metal roofing on their home but were unsure of what type was the best option for the amount they were looking to spend. We spent time developing three different proposals for these prospective clients. Each of these options had their benefits and budget. As part of our service process we were able to EDUCATE the client on what each option provided and actively listen to what their specific needs were. After identifying the needs of our client we were able to CONSULT them on which option might be the proper metal roofing system would be for their application.

The client chose to go with Central States Panel-Loc Plus System with 26 Gauge metal. This is because it provided the appearance, performance and fit in the budget in which they were comfortable with.Upon completing our first two goals of Educating our client and Consulting them it was time to provide the third goal to DELIVER a quality result on our promises. We set a schedule for the build of the project, pulled the applicable permits, and ordered an efficient amount of material. As a professional metal roofing contractor our initial goal was to complete the project in 5 business days and due to the optimal efficiency of our process we were able to cut that short and complete the project in 4 working business days!

Roofing Contractor Recognition and Affiliation – Northface Construction

The toughest part of choosing a roofing contractor is knowing who to trust. As talked about in our previous post How to Find a Trusted Roofing Company  there are important steps you can take to make sure you are finding the proper roofing contractor for your project. But, what types of affiliations does a company have and how do each of those establish that this roofing contractor is the one to work with?

  1. BBB

    • The Better Business Bureau is an establishment that holds businesses accountable for their practices in the marketplace and give a rating associated with the overall ethics and satisfaction that a roofing contractor  is conducting business. Companies can elect to become an Accredited member by paying membership dues and agreeing to abide by the BBB Code of Conduct.
  2. Manufacturer Certification

    • Roofing contractors can be manufacturer certified for different brands of shingles on the market. They must abide by manufacturer specification for installation, a code of conduct in business practices and have an outstanding track record of quality work to become certified. With being certified, the roofing contractor is being backed by the actual manufacturer of the product they install, which is a BIG deal. Most of these certifications by manufacturers also enables the contractor to provide much better warranty coverage than that of a typical contractor who is not certified. This is a HUGE plus because these stronger warranties could save the homeowner thousands in the future for a low cost up front.
  3. Houzz

    • Houzz is a social media type home style and decor site which allows contractors and other home products or designers to showcase their work and interact with potential clients. It allows residential consumers to look at photos and styles and add them to a portfolio to save and plan for their upcoming project or redesign. Houzz is very unique in the fact that is allows consumers to interact with professionals and ask questions about the showcased work. Companies who are awarded service awards by Houzz are chose because of their highly positive reviews and past interactions with clients which is another good insight into how a roofing contractor serves their clients.
  4. Angie’s List

    • Angie’s List requires roofing contractors to have at least one review from a current Angie’s List subscriber before they can be a service providing member. The site relies on actual reviews from REAL clients to judge on the overall experience and performance of work provided by the contractor. So not only do companies need to abide by a code of ethics, they really do need to satisfy their clients to be listed as a top provider. If a company receives an Angie’s list award or even is a service providing member you can know that this company is vetted, tried and tested.
  5. Trade Associations

    • Trade associations are a great indication of a companies trustworthiness and it shows insight into their culture as well. If a roofing contractor or other type of contractor is an active member in a local association it can be a good indication of their care for their local community and how they uphold strong ethics in how they do business. Most associations have strong missions that will incorporate an ethical standard of it’s members and seek to improve the community in which they serve.
  6. Chambers of Commerce

    • The local chamber of commerce is another affiliation that a reputable roofing contractor might have. Like trade associations, your local chamber of commerce with have business standards that it upholds for it’s members. It also is another way to see the insight of the culture of the roofing contractor you are looking to do business with and their care for the community in which they serve.
  7. Online Reviews

    • Online reviews can be found in many local listing spots such as Google, Houzz, Angie’s List, Yelp, BBB etc.. These will give you as a consumer a full overview of what type of quality experience and craftsmanship they provide to real local clients that have had experience. The value of online reviews for potential consumers and roofing contractors alike is immeasurable. Because not only can you get a full view of the company but, contractors can find out how they can serve their clients better. Another indication of the companies integrity is how they address and respond to bad reviews.

We here at Northface Construction believe that as a consumer you are best served by us through providing relevant and valuable information that can provide you with the tools to make an informed decision. your home is your biggest asset and that is why we promise to Educate, Consult and Deliver on the services we provide so you are satisfied with your experience to the fullest extent possible.

Northface Construction Roofing Company History

 

Josh Swisher, President and founder of Northface Construction started in the roofing industry at age 15 working for his neighbor. He started as a “gopher” laborer and through the 5 years working for that company became his employers right-hand man. Josh then started pursuing his college career while continuing to complete roofing and exterior remodeling projects as an independent contractor providing labor for numerous contractors. During his college career Josh was being asked by numbers of aquaintances and friends to do their roofing projects for them as he had a gained a reputation of quality and honesty in his work and takes great pride in what he does. So in 2010 Josh established Northface Construction and obtained his Minnesota Home Builders licence (BC665389). From that point forward, the company began to grow while Josh was still in college. The more roofing projects Northface Construction did the more referrals and people started reaching out to have their roofing projects contracted by us.

Northface treats it’s clients as project partners whose goal is the same as ours, to complete your roofing project in a fast, efficient, and cost effective manner with high quality craftsmanship.

Picking the right contractor for your roofing project can be a hard decision. It is best practice to get multiple bids, question each contractor on how they will complete the project, verify references provided, verify insurance and licensing etc… Most reputable roofing contractors should be able to provide all of the previously mentioned factors without much issue. But, when you are at the point of really making a decision on who to choose what will be the deciding factor? We believe it is trust.

Trust is gained through experience, honesty, reputation and many other factors. But, in the fast-paced technology driven world it is hard to know the right roofing contractor to trust and the one who sells their way into gaining your trust. Here at Northface Construction it is important to us to build our reputation through our client base more than anything else. The reason being that when someone you know and trust can refer you to another party you know they have been vetted, tried and tested. Our customers are our greatest advocates here at Northface Construction and it has all started from a humble beginning.

Why you NEED a Manufacturer Certified Roofing Contractor

There are a lot of contractors in Elk River and the surrounding Minneapolis market that contract roofing for residential projects. With so many options in the market, how can you be sure you are choosing the best contractor to suit YOUR needs? When searching for the right roofing contractor it is a good idea to review their online reviews, their references, look at past work, make sure they have insurance, proper tools, can be on schedule and many other things.  Overall, there are many variables that come into play when choosing the right roofing contractor for you in the Minneapolis market. The one that is not stressed enough comes after the job is done, how good is your warranty?

In most cases in residential roofing there are two types of warranties, a labor warranty and a manufacturers warranty. A labor warranty in the state of Minnesota is required by law for roofing contractors. This labor warranty covers any defect of installation that may cause issues at a later date and other installation issues that could come about. As long as you are using a reputable contractor that has an established warranty outline you should be covered if any workmanship issues arise. The manufacturers warranty is the part of the roof that is not fully understood by the majority of homeowners.

Manufacturers warranties cover the actual roofing material and its ability to satisfy it’s purpose of giving you the guaranteed usability. In the current roofing market, many people will refer to an architectural style shingle as a “Lifetime” shingle. This is because, what was previously known as a 30 year shingle, has been upgraded to what is known as “Lifetime”. In the definitions of most manufacturers a “Lifetime” is 50 years. This is a good thing for homeowners in the aspect that they get 50 years of coverage on the useful life of their shingle. However, most of these warranties are limited warranties and depreciate after 5-10 years. Not only is the value of the roof depreciated, but usually after the 5-10 years the warranty only covers the actual material. This means that labor, permits, trash removal and other things are not included. So technically at year 11 of your roof if you find out that the shingles are faulty, you will more than likely pay for most of the roofing process out of pocket. But, don’t worry there is an answer to this problem.

ROOFING

The answer to this issue is an easy aspect to overlook when picking out the right roofing contractor for your remodel. Most manufacturers have a type of certified installer designation for contractors in the market. What this means is that these contractors meet the criteria for quality installation and other variables that the manufacturer endorses and will provide better than the standard limited warranty. When you pick a roofing contractor to do your roof that is a manufacturer certified installer you can upgrade you warranty to most of the time be a nondepreciating warranty that includes labor, material, permits and dumpster costs. Usually this warranty is highly affordable and is registered with the manufacturer certifying that a contractor they approve of installed it and they have record of the size, scope, products and price it was to do the job. This warranty is usually transferable to the next owner as well and are usually applicable on commercial projects as well.
