Asphalt Shingle, Steel, Rubber & Other Roofing Choices
We are dedicated to providing the best service and a wide variety of attractive roofing choices. Our array of options includes shingle, steel, flat, and more. Whatever you choose, Hedrick Construction will complete your project with professionalism and style.
Do you have a flat roof? We have a solution. Our team of roofers have specialized training in installing rubber roofing membranes, which are seamless and help to prevent the detrimental effects of UV rays. Rubber membrane roofing can be beneficial for both commercial and residential properties.
Steel roofs are tough, durable, and fire resistant. They typically last 40–70 years before needing to be replaced and come with a 50-year warranty. Steel roofs can withstand up to 120 mph winds, resist corrosion, and effectively seal out moisture to prevent mold, mildew, and rot. Steel roofs can be designed to look like other more natural or traditional materials: asphalt, slate, cedar, shake, or clay. Steel also reflects solar heat and defends against UV radiation.
Hedrick Construction strives to be part of the solution for a better environment. We provide recycling and reuse of all viable roofing materials. Our contractors will be happy to dispose of your old roofing materials in a way that lightens your environmental footprint.
What to Expect in a Roofing Estimate
When searching for a roofing contractor, you should get several bids. It’s natural to want to go with the lowest bid you receive, but in many cases, this is unwise. Bids can vary a lot depending on what they cover. Some estimates do not include the cost of many materials necessary to do a proper reroofing job. Roof replacement bids should include costs for tearing off the old roof, installing new sheeting if necessary, underlayment, new shingle installation, flashing, lead pipe jacks, chimney work, ice and water barrier, ventilation, and dump fees. It is also important to verify the quantities to make sure each estimate is based on the same measurements. If an estimate is missing any of these items, you aren’t getting all the information you need to understand the true cost of a job done properly.
We don’t compromise our work by excluding essential items in our estimates simply to propose a lower bid. We’re up front with our customers and offer free, detailed estimates that reflect our high standards of professionalism and integrity.
