Our decades of experience and dedication to the craft has gained us an immense amount of  knowledge and we believe in sharing that with you. Of course we would be more than happy to earn your business but before we do that we thought it would be fair to give you tips on what you should look for when selecting a roofing contractor.

When it comes to shopping for the right roofing company, a lot of factors need to be taken into consideration. Companies can vary in everything from skill, experience, customer service, cost and more. So how do you know what choice is best for you? We’ve put together the following guide to help assist you in your search for who to trust and hire.

Best Characteristics of Quality Roofing Companies

Must have insurance

All professional roofing companies should possess the necessary insurances but it’s in your best interest to double check with the roofing company before hiring. The proper insurance a roofing contractor should have includes, Worker’s Compensation and Liability Insurance. Be weary of under-bid jobs, as this could be a sign of a company that does not have proper insurance. If you want to be protected with the security of coverage, insurance is a must and should be non-negotiable for any company you are looking to hire.

Locally established

The roof of your building is something that should be around for a while, so the contractor you hire should be as well. By hiring a local company it will be easier to perform maintenance, repairs and upgrades in the future. Don’t just simply find a local contractor, but rather a local one that has an established history in the area. You wouldn’t want to hire a company to do your roof and then when the warranty is up, they are nowhere to be found. Your best bet is to find a roofing contractor with longevity and a strong reputation in your area.

Cost isn’t everything

When comparing options, you should never make your decision based solely on price. The old saying “you get what you pay for” is true, especially in this industry. You will always be able to find cheap bids, but those will almost certainly come with a cheap product and service. Keep in mind that professional roofing companies have overhead and insurance built into their costs. By choosing the cheapest bid, you may risk working with an uninsured or inexperienced company, which will ultimately cost you more money in the long run to fix all the problems that come with it. Most times these issues should be covered under a workmanship guarantee that any reputable company will provide.

Written details

Before signing any contract, experienced roofing companies will provide you with ALL the details in writing. These details include total cost, terms of payment, start date, end date, crew size, and a clear description of what exactly the roofing company will be doing. If they hesitate to give you any of these details in writing, that should be a red flag and you will want to avoid doing business with them.

Communication is key

Proper communication is a crucial trait all professional contractors should have. A contractor that properly communicates will do so from the start by answering any questions you have and providing you with any information you request in a timely manner. Quality roofing companies will return your calls and emails and follow through on any deliverables they say they will send. The communication you receive prior to hiring a roofing contractor is a good indication of the communication you will get once the project is underway. With a roof being such a big job, it is imperative that you have a contractor you feel comfortable communicating with.
