Getting a new roof can often feel like an overwhelming and confusing process, so we outlined a step-by-step guide to choosing the best roof for your home.

Step 1: Get an Inspection

Your first step before getting a new roof should always be to get an inspection. Luckily for you, ours are free! When you schedule an inspection, a trained roofing professional will come out and do a thorough analysis of your roof. They know precisely what to look for – whether you’ve sustained damage from past storms or only have wear and tear accumulated over time.

Step 2: Need to File a Claim?

After a disaster hits, your homeowner’s insurance can save you thousands of dollars on repairs. However, insurance can be tricky, and not everything is covered. To avoid unexpected costs, you need to take a close look at your homeowner’s policy. We’ve put together a complete guide on top tips and mistakes not to make regarding your insurance claim HERE.

Step 3: Select Roof Type / Color

There are many different types of roofing materials to choose from and come in a wide price range as well. If you have any questions about what roofing material might be best for you, please call us at 208-745-9002, and we’d be more than happy to assist you. The table below (courtesy of www.iko.com) may help you match roof shingle colors to your home’s primary exterior color:

What to Expect on Install Day

We are typically able to complete a job in a single day and always leave your property spotless. We want to make the process as quick and easy as possible, and that’s why we always communicate what we’re doing with the homeowner. We like to forewarn that the work can be noisy, and homeowners should take the necessary steps to ensure work and/or children at home aren’t disturbed. We also like to remind homeowners to be careful when entering and exiting the house, and never walk outside barefoot while we’re working.

After Install Clean-Up

We will ensure that your roof, gutters, and yard are clear of roofing debris. Please make sure you and your family wear shoes outside to stay safe in case a stray nail was left. We also recommend doing a walk around your property with your roofing contractor.

Common FAQ’s:


1. What does maintenance look like?

A yearly inspection is always a good idea to ensure that your roof is staying sound, and an inspection is especially important after a storm passes. Keeping your gutters clean and free of debris can also help prevent buildup and damage to your roof, such as leaks.

2. What if I have a problem?

Our number one priority is to complete quality work for our customers that always leaves them happy. If you ever have any questions or issues, please call us directly so that we can make everything right.

3. Do I need to tell my insurance company?

Yes, you should always check with your insurance company before repairs begin. If you make repairs that aren’t covered under your policy, you may have to pay the bill out of pocket.
