Replacing or repairing your roof can be a big investment, and you want to make sure you pick the right roofing company for the job. Here are a few things to consider when deciding who to hire for your roofing project.
Make sure they are a local company with a good reputation in the community. Roofing companies or contractors who canvass the neighborhood after a storm or just run a side business out of their pickup truck and are able to offer a lower bid may seem like good options at the time, but often a few years down the road, when there are problems or repairs are needed, they are nowhere to be found, and any guarantees or warranties they offered are worthless. A good idea is to check with your local Better Business Bureau and Home Builders Association to see if there are complaints against the roofing company you are considering and how the complaints were dealt with. You can also check with friends or neighbors for references and read online reviews of local roofing companies.
You also want to make sure the company is licensed and insured. A legitimate roofing company will have a business license, roofing credentials, general liability insurance, and worker’s compensation insurance. No insurance leaves you as the consumer at risk for damage to your property and liable for any worker’s injuries.
Remember, price isn’t everything. An experienced, reputable roofing company that can guarantee quality work may offer a higher bid, but their costs include things like insurance, licenses, overhead, experienced workers, a warranty you can count on, and a job well done, which will ultimately save you money in the long run.
