6 Things to Know Before Your Roofing Consultation

Updated: Jun 25, 2020


You know your roof is old and that it’s time to start thinking about a replacement, but it can be difficult to know how to even begin the process of finding the right roofer and budgeting for this important investment in your Norfolk or Virginia Beach area home.

The first step is a free consultation, and here are 6 things you should know before meeting with a roofing contractor.


Quality Counts Your roof has a big job to do: It informs curb appeal, protects your home from the elements, and can even help improve energy efficiency—IF you choose quality roofing. While the typical homeowner may not know the specific benefits of each brand, it’s important to understand that there is a significant range of roofing materials available.

A roofer who cares about his clients is simply not going to use inferior materials, so make sure the roofer you choose is committed to using premium roofing products from trusted brands.


Integrity Roofing is proud to be a GAF Authorized Homebuilder. GAF has long been an industry leader and offers beautiful, ultra-durable roofing products that deliver decades of easy maintenance performance.


Expect the Hard Sell No one likes a pushy salesperson, but go in to your consultation understanding that’s what you might get. Frustratingly, these consultations often end up leaving you with very little information about the products being offered.


Integrity Roofing takes an educational approach during our consultations. We want to give Hampton Roads homeowners the information they need to make an informed decision about what’s best for their homes.


Hidden Charges are Common Some Tidewater roofing companies quote a great price, but the final bill ends up being much more. Hidden charges are common, so it’s important to read the fine print and to know what is—and more importantly what is not—included in the agreed upon price. For example, roofing companies charge up to $100 for each deck board that needs to be replaced. That can mean up to $5,000 in extra charges.


Integrity Roofing’s Price Lock Guarantee eliminates the stress of worrying about whether your final bill will match your quote—and we don’t charge extra for replacing roof boards.


Cheaper Isn’t Always Better Loving a bargain is one thing. Settling for the cheapest roofing contractors you can find is another. The saying “you get what your pay for” might seem a cliché, but it’s absolutely true when it comes to installing a new roof. Instead of giving the job to the lowest bidder, find a reliable roofing company with an excellent reputation and value-driven prices.


Integrity Roofing finds ways to keep our prices competitive, but never at the expense of quality. We also offer flexible financing solutions with payments as low as $86 a month that make it easier to budget for the high-performance roof you need.


The Warranty Matters Most roofs comes with some type of warranty, but they are not all the same.


Integrity Roofing’s customers are protected by an impressive 50-year warranty on their investment in a GAF roofing system, and that means you can count on us long after the installation is complete.


The Roofer’s Reputation Is Important It’s said that the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior, yet many homeowners are willing to ignore a history of scathing reviews in order to save a few bucks. That’s a really bad idea. While it’s fine to overlook the occasional negative review (it’s not possible to please everyone), if you see a pattern of the same complaints, it’s time to look for another Hampton Roads roofing company.


Integrity Roofing has built a solid reputation for excellence one job at a time. Our customers know they can count on us to deliver outstanding workmanship and that the job isn’t done until they are 100% satisfied. That’s why we have a perfect 5-star rating on Google Reviews. That’s the Integrity way!
