Important Roofing Regulations to Consider

by Guest on Feb 24, 2021

Having a home you can truly enjoy that is not only liveable, but safe, sturdy, and a delight to inhabit requires more than picking out the right paint, tiles, and carpeting. Certainly making sure your sofas fit comfortably where you imagined they would sit, and having your appliances match the color scheme you have always dreamed of, are significant. But a home built on shaky ground, topped off by a roof that is not built to code, can turn your dream home into a money pit and emotional strain that is straight out of your nightmares.

While we focus so much on interior design, it is equally if not more critical, to ensure that your home is structurally sound. And because rooftops are such a significant part of your home’s construction, there are a number of Building Codes that must be adhered to when installing, repairing, or replacing a rooftop.

Regulatory Considerations for Local Roofing

In order to ensure both safety and legality when it comes to roofing, one must consider a number of things. For example:

  • Are you changing the way in which the roof is configured or repairing an existing structure?
  • Are you updating your rooftop materials or changing them altogether?
  • Will the weight of the materials used to be supported by the existing structure, or will an additional, supportive structure need to be built?
  • Will you be adding a heating element to the roof?
  • And lastly, who is expected to complete the job- the homeowner or licensed and contracted roofer?

Financial Roofing Regulations

For example, the roofer you choose in Indiana State has a law not to do anything but the roofing tasks they are contracted to provide. Legally, they are not allowed to induce you to advertise on their behalf, with the promise of giving a rebate or discounted price in return. Furthermore, roofers are not permitted to reimburse clients the deductible they have already paid on their homeowner’s insurance policy. Additionally, roofing contractors cannot ask clients to pay them “up front” and must allow insurance companies to determine what they will and will not pay for, first. Any abuse of a client’s finances or financial situation can endanger both the homeowner and roofing company in a host of ways.

Other Roofing Items to Considerations

In order to avoid working with roofing services that so much as attempt to provide incentivized services or other illegalities, it is vital that your roofer is licensed, bonded, and insured. While this is currently not a law in some states, it is something that can only protect and help you in the long run.

Choosing a Company that Adheres to Roofing Regulations

Choosing a roofing company that can work within your budget, in a timely fashion, and respect the fact their work is taking place in your home, is hard enough. Making sure you are set to move out of your home while work is taking place, if need be, and that your belongings are going to potentially get a bit sandy?  That too is pretty intense. Needing to know the ins and outs of the local building and roofing codes?  Now that is too much!

The good news is that when you choose professional contracting companies for your roofing needs, you do not have to worry about knowing the rules and regulations of roofing and construction, because they do. Not only can you entrust them with your roof, but your peace of mind, knowing that they will get the job done right all the way around.
