What you should know before letting anyone on your roof!

great Reputation?

Does your contractor have a great reputation or are they a fly by night, storm chaser? How can you tell a bad contractor from a good one? The easiest way to tell a bad contractor from a good one is to quickly google search the company name. First and foremost, a legit company will have great reviews. If your contractor doesn’t show up on the first page in Google, or at all… this is a clear sign they do not take their business seriously enough to be trusted to be on your roof. Google Edge Roofing and see for yourself. 

Are they licensed?

The next thing you should always check is if they have a business license in your state. In other words, are they legally allowed to do business with you? This is very important because if they don’t have a license this could cause major problems for you if anything were to go wrong. We have heard many horror stories over the years… You can quickly check any company by going to your local chamber of commerce’s website. Here is ours: 

Are they insured?

This can be a little tricky, but it’s very important to verify yourself. If someone were to fall off your roof, you the homeowner would be liable in the state of Georgia. Meaning the roofer could sue you since the accident happened on your property.  Many companies claim they are “Licensed, Bonded, and Insured” here is our proof.

Inspecting asphalt shingle roof

Step 1

Tear Off and Decking

Either day before or the morning of your roof installation, your shingles and a dumpster will be delivered. Removing the existing shingles and underlayment from your roof is the first step of your roof installation.  Then we inspect the decking to ensure there is no rot. If we do find rot we will replace those areas before we being installing the new Total Protection Roofing System.

Step 2


Drip Edge

Drip edges are metal sheets, usually shaped like an “L,” installed at the edge of the roof. Drip Edge serves a vital function by directing water away from the fascia and into the gutter and minimizes the possibility to water getting under tech shingle.

Ice & Water Barrier

RhinoRoof® Granulated Self-adhered Underlayment is designed as a secondary water barrier for use on steep slope roofs (2:12 or greater) under: Asphalt Singles, Synthetic Shingles, Residential Roofing and Cedar Shakes.
