Like most home improvement industries, you can search “roof replacement contractor near me” and see countless results. However, how do you choose? What makes for a good and trustworthy roofing company? Here are a few tips that will help you eliminate those who don’t have the experience or aren’t right for you.
Ask People You Trust
If you’re getting a new roof, chances are others in your neighborhood have already done so. Find out who they used and their experience. Did they meet with any other companies who they would not recommend?
Any roof replacement contractor can put anything on their website. However, if you are looking for a certain brand or material roof, you want to make sure they specifically mention what you’re looking for. For example, if you know you want a roof from GAF, look for a GAF Master Elite™ certified roofing company. Also look for their history and guarantee.
Validate What They’re Saying
If they say they are a local roofing company, see if they are truly local to you. Remember, it’s easy to open a post office box anywhere. The Better Business Bureau can help you know if they are trustworthy, local and their reputation. Also, if they claim to have a certification from a manufacturer, you can also check the manufacturer’s site to validate that information as well.
Treat the Estimate Appointment as a Job Interview…
And you’re the hiring manager. Pay attention to when they show up, how they present themselves and their company. Do they listen to your concerns and answer your questions? When they provide you with an estimate, is it written? Does it include details about the job? These are all important things to consider and look for when hiring someone to replace your roof.
