Any roofing contractor can re-roof a building
Only Castro Roofing makes the process easy, transparent, & stress-free
There are a thousand possible land mines when it comes to re-roofing a building.
And if you choose the wrong roofing contractor, your project could take longer than planned, cost more, and leave you with a roof that will likely need to be replaced again.
At Castro Roofing, we make re-roofing easy because we sweat thousands of tiny details—so you do have to.
Here’s a brief overview of our process and advantages:
Determine The Cause of the Failure:
This fundamental step is often ignored by roofing contractors who are satisfied with obvious answers like “the roof is old” or “it was hit by a hailstorm.” Our experience is that over 50% of roofs FAIL PREMATURELY due to faulty roof design, inferior materials, or poor installation techniques.
What Kind of Use Will The Building Get:
Several factors must be carefully studied before determining what roof will work best for your building. Factors include how long you intend to keep the building, amount of foot traffic on the roof, presence and type of mechanical units on the roof, likelihood of hail, desired level of energy efficiency, etc.
Quality & Price Options Provided:
Based on our discovery meeting we’ll give you multiple quotes for “good, better, and best” re-roofing options. Quotes will be complete with architectural drawings and materials manufacturer approval. We’ll then walk you through the relative pros and cons of each option to help you make the best choice.
“No Surprises” Pre-Construction Meeting:
Prior to starting the project, we’ll meet with your team to discuss issues like the expected duration of the project, interior noise that can be expected, staging areas for materials, placement of dumpsters, and so forth. We want you to be fully prepared for the project so you can plan accordingly.
ZERO Defects Form:
As part of the pre-construction meeting, we’ll present your team leader with a zero defects form which allows you to know exactly what to look for as we progress. You will know for sure that we are doing the job right as it’s all about transparency—you should ALWAYS be “in the know.”
No Baby-Sitting… Online Project Management:
We’ll give you daily updates to your project via a secure online portal. This includes photos of what was completed that day and a “percentage complete” statement so you will never wonder where we’re at in the process. Daily emails can be sent to anyone designated on your team so anyone anywhere can stay current with the project.
Online Warranty Posting:
Once the job is complete, we’ll log your warranties into your online portal for instant access. You’ll never scramble to find warranties, job specifications, or documents later—we make sure it’s ALL easy to find… FOREVER.
As you can see, there’s a lot more to re-roofing a building than just “tearing the old roof off and putting a new one on.” That’s why you should only trust Castro Roofing to reroof your commercial building.

Re-roof is the last phase of the roof lifecycle, and it comes with the 5 Ps of construction investment strategy:
- Peace of Mind
What are the problems that are causing the need for construction?
P1 – Problem
“Determining & Qualifying Your Needs”.
Most of us were not born with a construction manual in our heads so; if you don’t do this often, how would you know what your problems is? Experts advise property owners to ask questions of every contractor you invite to bid on your project… some of those questions might be…
- What is the proper design or scope of the work for your project?
- What are the specifications that will achieve the scope of work?
- What criteria are required for Contractor Qualification and Selection?
- Does the contractor have adequate insurance?
- What are the risks and liability of uninsured, or underinsured?
Satisfaction and Trouble-Free Service
P2 – Product
Satisfaction and trouble-free service are two things that are a result of putting together the proper design and specifications with the proper materials and applications by quality craftsmen. How would you know what the right product is for your job? Just like on P1, in order to assure that you select the proper products you need to ask these questions.
- What are the preparation requirements that impact long-term performance?
- What are the proper materials for the project?
- Do the manufacturers have any special requirements for their long-term warranty?
- What are the craftsmanship requirements?
- What styles, options, grades, and warranties are available?
Never Buy a Product… Buy a Contractor
P3 – People
Never Buy a Product… Buy a Contractor. It really doesn’t matter who the manufacturer is, the quality of the product, or the length of their warranty. If the product is not installed by skilled craftsmen, it will never perform as intended or anticipated.
But how would you know if you have the right contractor? Again, you need to ask questions!
- How long has the contractor been in business?
- Is the contractor a member of his trade organization?
- Is the contractor licensed?
- Is the contractor approved or certified by the manufacturer?
- Can the contractor provide references?
Expense or Investment
P4 – Price
Price is probably the easiest of the four areas to make sure you’re making the right decision. You either do the work right and the work becomes an investment as it lasts up to expectations, or you do it wrong and the project could become a major expense.
How would you know if you had the right price? Again, you need to ask questions!
- How do you determine if the price is right?
- Has the contractor worked nearby for price comparison?
- Has the contractor done similar projects in scope and size?
- Are there potential and unforeseen and unknown extra costs?
- What are the potential and unforeseen and unknown extra costs?
- What are you options for funding your construction investment?
- Is the contractor’s proposal clear and understandable?
PEACE OF MIND
Hopefully, I have done my job well enough that you know have the trust and confidence to make an educated decision that will give you the peace of mind to know that you have made a good contracting decision.
So, there are really 5 Ps and “P5 = Peace of Mind” and the question here is, “will the decision you make today turn out to be an expense or an investment?”
