Roofing Material Delivery

It’s the delivery day! After completing the process of roof inspections and roofing material selections, your shingles are being delivered today! So we understand why you are excited, but we want you to understand it comes with a few inconveniences you should be aware of. These include:

  1.  Noise: First and foremost, the delivery trucks and equipment can be noisy. You may also hear the sounds of hammers, saws, or other equipment, which can be loud. 
  2.  Access: Another consideration is the loss of access you may experience while delivering shingles. The delivery truck is large and can block access points to your home, like your garage, during delivery
  3.  Storage: Furthermore, shingles take up a lot of space. So, if they are not loaded onto your roof, a significant area must be designated for storage until installed. 
  4.  Safety: Most importantly, shingles can be heavy and difficult to move. So, being aware of your surroundings while delivery occurs is imperative. Heavy equipment and large delivery vehicles are other factors in keeping everyone on site safe!

Other inconveniences include debris from delivery and trucks and vehicles requesting access to your driveway for a roof load delivery. Overall, it is essential to plan carefully the delivery of shingles to minimize inconveniences. Doing this ensures a smooth and efficient process.

Did you know?
On the day of delivery, it's essential to have your driveway clear of vehicles and debris. This will then allow the delivery vehicle to use your driveway as an access point to load your shingles on your roof for your roof replacement.

Your Shingle Delivery Isn't a Countdown!

Custom Exteriors Payment Timeline

The process for a payment schedule when Custom Exteriors is completing a roof replacement on your property is similar whether you have an insurance claim or are paying out of pocket. 

Regardless, your deductible is due at contract signing, and you have likely already paid it if you are here on this page. The following payment is due upon delivery of your roofing materials. Once the materials are delivered to your property, and you have taken possession of them, payment totaling 50% of the job total is due. If you have an insurance claim, you have likely collected a depreciation check from your insurer. These funds will probably cover this 50% payment. 

The remaining payment is due upon completion of the project by trade. What this means is that if Custom Exteriors is completing windows or any other project, payment in full is due upon completion of each trade. However, if you have an insurance claim, we will never ask you to pay in advance of receiving reimbursement from your insurance company.
