There are many aspects to analyze when preparing to have your roof repaired or replaced. The search for a roofing contractor can involve a complex decision-making process. Hiring a trusted and experienced roofing contractor can make this whole process easier.
So, how good is your roofing contractor?
- Ask your family, friends and neighbors. If you are just starting your search for a good local roofing contractor, ask your friends and neighbors for recommendations and advice. Whether they have had positive or negative experiences with their roofers, you can distill the information you gather to help you make an informed decision that you’ll be happy with.
- Ask for references. An extensive list of solid references says more than any website or phone call. People who have had firsthand experience with a roofer will give you a detailed and honest opinion. Ask previous customers about the overall experience they had with that particular roofer. If possible, ask them for pictures of their roof while the work was in progress. Make sure to also ask about how well their roofer cleaned up their yard and protected the plants and decorations around the house.
- Read online reviews. Going beyond the rating in websites like Google and reading the actual reviews can give you a fairly clear picture of how good your roofing contractor is. Some reviews are more detailed than others and sometimes the rating is not a good enough indicator of a roofer’s quality. Read several reviews for each contractor to get a sense of their overall work. You can also get a sense of how experienced, how clean and how thorough a roofer is by reading what others are writing about them online. Taking a little time to research your roofer on the internet will give you confidence in your decision.
- Ask specific questions. How many people are in your crew? What is your clean-up policy? What does your schedule look like? How booked are you right now? Are you a certified contractor by the shingle manufacturer company? What kind of warranty do you offer? Does the warranty cover materials and labor? How long will my new roof last? How many years have you been in business? Where are you headquartered?
