How To Choose The Right Roofing Contractor

We often see that contractors can make or break a roofing deal for customers. We also see a lot of people that have leaks right after a roof replacement. Or even money that has changed hands without work being finished. With so much trouble surrounding these situations, it’s no wonder people might be skeptical about choosing a roofing company. You’d think it would be easy to spot a bad deal, but that’s not often the case. Here are some things to help you know how to choose the right roofing contractor.

1. Contracts and Proposals

A professional roofing company will send you a transparent proposal for your roofing job. It should be completely itemized for you. Every piece that will be used with it’s cost, plus the amount of labor should be clearly stated. Never be afraid to ask for this.

2. Licensing

Quality roofs come from companies that are properly licensed and insured. To avoid maintaining the liability yourself, make sure you ask to see all proper licensing.

3. They Are Local

Many roofing companies will come in from out of town right after a bad storm and start canvasing neighborhoods. It can be hard to trust a roofing contractor that no one really knows. Asking for referrals from friends and neighbors, or checking Google reviews can make sure you are hiring someone close by.

4. Work With Insurance

Most roofing contractors should be able to work with your insurance company. This may mean meeting the adjuster to go over damage and verify your claim. Make sure any roofing company you talk to knows how to work with your insurance company if you are making a claim.

5. No Pressure

It should go without saying that a roofing company should never force a sale on you or make you feel pressured. After addressing your needs, the decision is up to you. You shouldn’t be rushed to make decisions or pressured to buy certain products.
