Should I Get Roofing Services During The COVID-19 Pandemic?

Roofing During The COVID-19 Pandemic

As you may have learned, DIY (Do it Yourself) has been very popular during COVID-19 lockdowns and the pandemic. People are doing what they can to work on their homes and build something to keep their minds and hands busy. While the pandemic has cut off some services that we use day to day to keep our homes running smoothly, that doesn’t mean the home improvement industry has come to a screeching halt. Even during the height of the pandemic and even right now, demand for roofing services has been immense. Many contractors are busier than they’ve ever been before, including Greatway Roofing. Customers are shifting their spending habits from things they can’t purchase (such as vacations), to things they can, like home improvements. It’s this structural change in how people are doing business that’s changing how the entire industry is operating.

All this activity is a good thing. You can’t just press pause on your roofing because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It still needs to be fixed or replaced if you don’t want to end up with even worse issues in the future that cost even more money to solve.

But what about the practicalities? Can you get a new roof or a repair during the COVID-19 pandemic? The answer is yes, in most cases, you can. While many restrictions have continued to date, getting your roof fixed is allowed, and in fact, deemed “essential.”

A sense of trust

Roofing services like Greatway Roofing are ensuring that you get the roofing services that you need. Trusting the roofer that you hire is a must because your roof plays a huge role in helping to protect your home from the world outside. Any damage leaves the rest of the roof weak and
the home vulnerable to an onslaught from the elements. This can lead to dampness, mold, pests, and further damage that could make your home unlivable.

While COVID-19 has forced many industries to temporarily shut their doors, roofing isn’t in that category. It’s not only necessary for roofing services to remain available, it’s essential that you are kept safe. The one thing that you should be looking for in your roofing company is a solid
COVID-safe plan. You want to trust the company that you hire to work on your roof and that means doing some quality research.

Your roofing safety

The company that you hire to repair or replace your roof will have its own safety measures compared to others in the industry. They’ll need to remain compliant with the safety rules, including wearing masks and other personal protective equipment as required, social distancing, as much as possible, and providing the option to pay for your roofing repairs and replacements digitally.

The right company will recognize that the current times are everchanging and are filled with uncertainty, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t follow the safety guidelines and provide exceptional service. In fact, GreatWay Roofing keeps the safety of everyone a priority.
