How to Hire the Right Roofing Contractor

November 7, 2021

Whether you’re looking for a simple roof repair or need an entire re-roof, you’ll need a roofing contractor that’s efficient, honest, and reputable to do the job right. Your roof is your home’s primary defense against the elements afterall. But if you haven’t had this type of work performed before, how do you know if you’ve hired the right roofing contractor? Here are a few factors you should consider so you can make an informed decision.

1. Licensed and Insured

Ensure the roofing contractor you want to hire is licensed in your state. Also ask to see proof of their insurance coverage. This helps protect you from liability for anything that may go wrong on the site.

2. Experience

The more experience your roofing contractor has, the more skills they bring to the job. A roofing company that’s been in business for years is most likely to be more trustworthy and reputable or else they would be closed by now.

3. Do they Use Subcontractors?

A roofing company that’s too busy or too small may still accept your job but then they’ll pass it off to another roofing company.

4. Work with a Local Roofing Contractor

Make sure the roofing company you work with is local in your area. It’s not only easier to contact them if something goes wrong but they’re established within your community.

5. Don’t go with the Cheapest

Don’t select a roofing contractor based solely on price. Those who perform roofing work on the side or out of a truck can easily bid legitimate companies, but keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Customers who choose a reputable company that specializes in roofing end up saving more in the long run than those who have to continue paying for repairs on a bad job.

6. Great Customer Service

A good roofing contractor should have several satisfied customers to confirm their work and customer service. Ask if they can refer you to a past customer or look for reviews on their website, google profile, and digital marketplaces such as HomeAdvisor.

7. Look for Pictures

When researching for roofing contractors, be sure to check their website and reviews for pictures of recent jobs to show their legitimacy and quality of work.

8. Get Written Estimates

Any reputable roofing contractor will thoroughly advice what your roofing project will entail, how long it will take, the size of the crew needed, and applicable warranties. Make sure you get the estimate itemized and in writing. Not only will this help you compare offers but it also shows you how transparent the company is.
