3 Tips for Selecting a Residential Roofing Contractor
June 29, 2015 at 1:41 PM
Selecting someone to install or replace your home’s roof is a big decision. Your roof is tasked with the hard job of protecting your home from the elements, and keeping your belongings inside safe and dry. Therefore, it’s important the roofing contractor you select knows their stuff.
To assist you in the hiring process, here are three tips for selecting a residential roofing contractor.
1. Ask for Reviews and Testimonials
Ask your friends, neighbors and coworkers for a recommendation. Also, for most local companies, you can find reviews and testimonials online through Angie’s List, the Better Business Bureau or on the company’s website. In addition, when you are speaking to the contractor, you can ask if there are past clients that you could call and talk to about their experience.
2. Ensure the Roofing Company is Qualified
Next, ensure the roofing company you’re hiring is qualified to do the work you desire. Ask about the training the staff receives, and the certifications and licenses the company has, how long they have been in business, and if they are locally owned. Companies with solid reputations and longevity built in the local community are always a great place to start.
3. Get Quotes Regarding your Roofing Project
When you begin talking to companies about taking on your roofing project, ask for a written and detailed quote regarding the cost of completion. By getting several quotes from several companies you’ll be able to compare the different processes and options available.
A few particular items to look for compared to the cost are the estimated time for the project completion, the number of tradesmen working on your project, the quality of the materials to be used, and the amount of communication you’ll receive throughout the roofing project.
Keep in mind that the quickest, cheapest quote you receive might not give you the best quality roof system. At the end of the day your new roof should last you a long time. So, you want to make sure that you’re thorough.
