Frequently Asked Questions

What happens after I choose Schick Roofing?

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.

When will I hear about the status of my roofing project?

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.

Do I need HOA approval?

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.

What should I let your Schick Roofing representative know in advance?

  • Please advise your Schick Roofing representative of any re-pipe, electrical, water, AC, or fire suppression lines that have been run in the attic. We will need to identify them accordingly before beginning any installation of new fasteners.
  • Notify us if you have an irrigation (sprinkler system); if so, please mark the sprinkler heads.
  • Flag the location of your septic tank, if you have one.

What should I expect during the roofing project?

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.

How should I prepare my home or office interior for my roofing project?

  • Please consider boarding pets that may experience stress from noise or strangers on the property.
  • Take the appropriate measures to secure any items on the walls that may get damaged by extreme vibrations.
  • Do not arm security systems, as the vibrations almost always trigger the alarm.
  • Remove valuables or cover items stored in attic spaces.
  • There will be incidental debris that falls from vibrations and the overall re-roof process (changing of wood rot, removal of flashings, etc.) which our technicians might not be able to catch or access.

At what time will my roof project begin?

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.

What can I expect after my roofing project is complete?

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.

How is payment handled?

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.

What if my shingles don’t look perfect?

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.

What if I need a Wind Mitigation Report for insurance purposes?

We recommend contacting a 3rd party to complete the inspection.
