Once you select Schick Roofing for your roofing project, please sign and return the contract. Upon receipt, someone from our staff will contact you to review the following in-person: color selection of the materials and collection of the appropriate notarized municipality permit forms. We take care of all necessary permits and inspections with your county building department. You will also pay your deposit payment at this meeting.
Within one week of the project commencement, we will email to confirm your start date and crew arrival time, as well as provide specific direction regarding construction dumpster placement, material deliveries and other important information.
Your homeowner’s association’s architectural review committee may require approval for your re-roof or color and manufacturer selection. Each HOA has a specific process and timeline. Please contact your homeowner’s association office for more details. In our experience, HOA’s do not authorize roofing contractors to obtain this approval but prefer to deal only with the property owners.
Typically, once the project starts, it is complete within 3-5 days. This timeline starts when workers arrive on your property and continues through final cleanup and final inspection. During that time, expect a lot of noise from removal of the old roof and installation of the new roof.
Workers will start early and finish late (optimizing work during the cool hours of the day). Our typical day runs from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., but it varies by job location, weather, and time of year.
Please leave all paperwork including your permit posted until notified by Schick Roofing that it can be removed. A Building Inspector will arrive to perform a final inspection. This inspection, if approved, finalizes the permit. The inspector will need to access information in the posted paperwork to process the final inspection. Sometimes final inspections take up to 14 days, depending on the municipality. If this paperwork is removed prematurely by the property owner or tenant, it could trigger a failed final inspection and additional fees the property owner will have to pay.
We will schedule the pick-up of the construction dumpster at completion of the project and keep you informed of the pick-up status. Please understand that there may be a slight delay in the pick-up of the dumpster, depending when work is completed. When the dumpster has been picked up, we will send someone to perform a final sweep of your property to confirm all nails, debris and any remaining materials are removed. Once that is completed, we will let you know it is safe to use the driveway.
An invoice is prepared and delivered to you upon completion of the project. When full payment is received, we provide you with a notarized Contractor’s Final Affidavit. This document proves that all lienors under the direct contract have been fully paid. At that time, we will also provide your warranty paperwork, both material and workmanship.
Immediately upon completion, you may notice small shingle imperfections. Those are completely normal. It takes 60 to 90 days for shingle adhesive to cure and for the shingles to smooth out. You should also expect to see some granule loss after the first rain, and for the next several months. This is also normal; it’s just excess granules from the packaging coming loose.
We recommend contacting a 3rd party to complete the inspection.
