When you need your roof repaired or replaced, sifting through a list of roofing contractors can be frustrating. You don’t want to simply choose one of the first few roofing companies on the list. Instead, you want one you can trust to get the job done right at a fair price. Here are a few tips to help make the decision simple.
1. Get Referrals for Roofing Contractors
If your neighbor is having work done to her roof, check in and see if she’s happy with the price and the service. Ask friends and coworkers if they can recommend roofing companies they have recently used. When you choose a trusted local contractor, you can be sure that they are established in the community and that the company will be there for years to come in case problems arise.
2. Check With the Better Business Bureau (BBB)
From customer complaints to other dishonest practices, if you cannot get a referral from a friend or neighbor, the BBB can help. Look for roofing contractors with good ratings and stay away from those with numerous complaints or, worse, no profile at all.
3. Licensing and Insurance
A current license will ensure your contractors are skilled in both safety procedures and installation and repair of materials. Any roofing companies you are considering should hold a current license and be happy to provide you with a copy. You also want to be sure the contractor is fully insured, including appropriate worker’s compensation insurance, or you might be on the hook if anything goes wrong.
4. Ask About Warranties
Once you’ve narrowed your selection down to a few roofing companies, ask what kind of warranty each offers. Most roofing materials will be warrantied from the manufacturer for poor quality, but you will also want to ask about warranties for improper workmanship, too.
5. Good Communication
You don’t want to work with a company that is slow to return calls or won’t answer your questions. Good communication is essential. Make sure you get all the terms of the job in writing–including price and estimated time for completion–and take the time to review any documents before signing.
6. Trust Your Gut
If a roofing contractor makes you feel uneasy or is pressuring you to sign a contract before you’re ready, walk away. A reputable roofing company will want to earn your business–and your future referrals to your friends and family. They will work hard to build trust and make sure you feel good about your choices rather than trying to rush you through the process.
