“I'm seeing some water damage. I think I need to replace my roof.”

Replacing Your Roof in Los Angeles

Most roofs can be expected to last between 20 and 25 years. The most obvious indication that it is time to replace your roof is age—if your roof is any older than 25 years it is probably time to make the investment. In addition to age, pay attention to buckling of your roof, large leaks, curling or missing shingles, or daylight shining through the roof boards in your attic. Any of these roofing problems could be serious enough to warrant a complete roof replacement.

How To Find The Best Roofing Contractor in Los Angeles

Getting the right contractor to work on your roof may seem challenging and confusing at first. Regardless if you are a newbie or have already had a roof replaced before, replacing or installing a new roof should always be approached with a few things in mind. Here are a few points to consider if you are wanting to hire the best roof replacement contractor in Los Angeles.  

Check that Your Roofer Has Proper Insurance

Make sure that the roof replacement contractor you are dealing with has worker’s compensation and liability insurance. You can ask them to present their certificates. They must oblige as it is a standard requirement for legitimate companies to have it as part of their business requirements. Having the proper licenses and insurance ensures that part of the cost of the roof and the services provided to you have protection and security coverage.

Check Your Hired Roofer’s Physical Location

When looking for a contractor, make sure that their office is within your local metro area. Since you are in Los Angeles, it is best to choose a company that you can quickly contact if there are any issues. It will be much more manageable to hire a roofer who is close by and reachable. This is also helpful if something was to go wrong after the roof is installed, you will know that the contractor you hired will still be there for you as most new roofs come with some type of guarantee.   

Consider the Quality of Your Roofing Job

Pricing should not be the only thing you consider when hiring a local LA roof replacement contractor. Customers who are sold on the price as the main criteria sometimes end up spending more in the long run. Most of the issues that can occur after a completed roof replacement will be  covered under a warranty that is offered by a reputable, established, and able roofing contractor. 

How Responsive is Your Roof Contractor?

For any roof replacement, you will want a roof installer who you can communicate with regularly throughout the process. Communication is paramount, especially with an investment as large as a new roof. When hiring a contractor, they should be approachable and be the type who returns your calls in an efficient manner. They should be responsive before ever signing a contract whether it be when sending price estimates or formal documentation you might need them to send you. If they do not comply, then maybe you should jump to the next contractor on the list to ensure your experience is seamless and professional. 

Get the Details of Your Roof Installation in Writing

Consider this as a long term investment for you and your family, you need to have everything in writing. Specific details should be in the roof installation contract and agreed to by both parties from overall costs, estimated completion date, and exactly what materials will be used. Keep in mind that you have the final say on everything and should feel comfortable voicing your concerns. Make sure that you are satisfied with the results of the work. Also, observe the terms of your written agreement to make sure all things you’re expecting are accounted for and there aren’t any hidden fees or terms. 

California Cool Roof Ordinance

If your home is located in Los Angeles, the Cool Roofs Ordinance will heavily influence the type of materials you use and who you hire to install your roof. As part of the California Energy Code, the city of Los Angeles requires all residents who are buying new roofs or replacing the roof of their home to comply with the requirements of the Cool Roofs Ordinance.

Cools Roofs are constructed from materials that reflect 80 percent of solar radiation compared to the 20 percent of solar radiation reflected by conventional roofing materials. When these products are used, the surface of the roof may be as much as 50 percent cooler than other roofs and the temperature inside of the home drops by several degrees as well. Since cool roofs decrease the temperature of your home without the use of your air conditioner, you can expect to experience significant utility savings and to consume less energy after the installation of your roof. These roofs are also associated with lower risks for heat related deaths.

In California, there are numerous roofing material manufacturers offering cool roof products. To simplify the process of shopping for the right products for your Los Angeles home, Cool California has created a resource for searching for qualifying products. Available products are sorted by product type, color, slope of the roof, the type of standards they meet, and the rebates available with the products.

Roofing Rebates in Los Angeles

Through the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power, homeowners may be able to qualify for rebates for installation of Cool Roof qualified roofs. To qualify for the rebate, homeowners must obtain the proper permit through the city government and meet certain Solar Reflectance Index guidelines. A 3 Year Solar Reflectance Index indicates how much solar radiation an individual roof can reflect.

  • For a rebate of $0.20 per square foot, newly installed roofs with a low slope should have a 3 year Solar Reflectance Index of 75 or more and newly installed roofs with a steep slope should have a 3 year Solar Reflectance Index of 16 or more.
  • For a rebate of $0.30 per square foot, newly installed roofs with a low slope should have a 3 year Solar Reflectance Index of 85 or more and roofs with a steep slope should have a 3 year Solar Reflectance Index of 35 or more.

Before purchasing materials and products for your new roof, it is best to begin by checking that your selected items qualify for the Cool Roof Rebate. Once you have confirmed eligibility, you can move forward with purchase and installation of your roof. After installation, complete the Consumer Rebate Program Application provided by the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power and submit it along with a copy of your home improvement contract and your final approved building and safety permit.

Los Angeles Roofing Construction Permits

Following Cool Roof guidelines will provide you the guidance you need for selecting roof materials and products that are most appropriate for the climate in Los Angeles. In addition to considering the climate, there are permit and licensing requirements to consider. Since each city’s government has the authority to create permit regulations and building codes unique to their city, you will need to apply for your permit through the City of Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety

Unless you have the skills and knowledge needed to install a roof yourself, you will need to hire a reliable contractor who meets state licensing requirements. In California, all contractors making major home improvements, including roof installation, are required to apply for a general builder’s license through California Department of Consumer Affairs. Contractors with employees are also required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover the cost of medical bills or missed work time if an employee is injured while working on your roof.

Roofing Maintenance

If you have chosen high quality, energy efficient materials, you can expect your roof to last for twenty or more years. As a homeowner, there are actions you can take to extend the life of your roof. Inspect your roof for damage at least once a year and following any extreme weather. If you notice water is pooling on your roof or if your roof has begun to leak, having it repaired immediately will prevent further damage to your roof and home. By using energy efficient materials on your roof and taking the necessary steps to maintain it’s integrity, you can increase the value of your home and decrease monthly utility costs through improved energy efficiency.

Final Thoughts on Hiring a Roofer

As discussed in the details above, one of the vital steps for a quality roof replacement  job is hiring a reliable local Los Angeles roofer. You can worry less about installing a new roof when you trust your roofer. Consider this as an essential guide to follow, especially if this is your first time doing such a large home improvement project for your California home.
