Even before Hurricane Andrew forced sweeping changes to the building code, Hammerhead Roofing has always taken great care in implementing wind-uplift countermeasures. We have built a solid reputation on roofs that were among the most sound prior to and after Andrew by exceeding most of the current codes. Now that all are held to the same standards by a conscientious throng of building code officials, test labs, and other agencies, we continue to pioneer the field.
Hammerhead Roofing makes every effort to keep our customers informed as to the status of their roof. Unfortunately, some facets of your project may not move as smoothly as one might expect. To help dispel misunderstanding, we ask our customers to be mindful of the following:
Hammerhead Roofing is subject to time-tables set forth by the manufacturers and suppliers from whom we secure your selected roof covering. That is to say, the scheduling of your job will be based upon information provided by them as to the availability of the material. There are over 75 municipalities in our service area alone. Each has its own requirements in addition to those of the Building Code, and new ones can be foisted on a moment’s notice. It is impossible to anticipate every conceivable technicality in such an environment. Therefore, if the municipality in which you reside elects to impose some unusual condition resulting in additional costs or requirements, it will need to be addressed accordingly.
As with any large undertaking, a new roof has the potential for unexpected surprises. Hammerhead Roofing urges you to become as educated as you can about the intricacies of your existing roof system, which may not be up to current code standards if completed prior to 2001, and those of your selected roof covering as they relate to the Florida Building Code.
We also encourage you to find out all you can about your contractor. To get started, check the license status at the website belonging to a county in which your contractor is registered. For example, one county in which Hammerhead Roofing is registered is Palm Beach. Go to the Palm Beach County contractor status page, under "Document Searches," "Inquire by Name," type in Hammerhead Roofing of South Florida, Inc.; This page will display our status information. Notice that it is listed as "Active." You will be well advised not to entertain proposals from any company whose status is listed as "Expired," or "On Hold," as this is an indicator of non-compliance or even wrongdoing.
Hammerhead Roofing of South Florida, Inc. strives to be all you expect from a roofing company. If you perceive a failure on our part, whether customer service related, or where our work is concerned, we invite you to visit our contact page, and send us a message describing your thoughts. If we meet or exceed your expectations, we encourage compliments too! Remember, the best compliment we can receive is a referral!
