Are you in the market for a new roof? Have you looked through ads, searched the internet and perused websites and still you are not sure which company to choose? If this sounds like you, here are some things to consider.
Choosing a roofing contractor is like choosing a relationship. Inspections must be done, an insurance claim filed and approved, materials to be chosen, the installation itself, and then the final inspection. But that final inspection is seldom ever final. Depending on the length of time you stay in your house, you will likely face more than one roofing repair down the road. And, if you live in a hail prone area – like the Front Range of Colorado – you will probably replace your roof more than once in the time you occupy your house.
So what this calls for is some careful research. One great way to find out about a roofing company is to read their reviews. As reviews are often posted in several places, it is helpful to check Better Business Bureau, Google Plus, Facebook, and Yelp, just to name a few. You can also ask for some testimonials. Are previous customers satisfied? Does the company have any complaints?
Another great way to assess a roofing company is to ask to speak directly with their management. Do they make themselves available? Are they responsive? Do they answer your questions? By asking questions such as this, you will find out just how customer friendly the company is, and more importantly, how likely they are to respond to your needs.
Lastly, check to make sure that the company you are considering is licensed and insured in the state you live in. Not only does this ensure quality work, but that the work will meet your local building code and insurance requirements.
While it may take some time to find the right roofing contractor, the process is well worth it. A great roofing contractor should be there not just to help with your current roofing needs, but for years to come.
