Hiring a roofing service can be a stressful endeavor. However, it’s not that hard to find a reputable and quality roofing service. Follow these helpful tips to get the best roofer for your home.
The first thing to do is see if your friends and family have referrals. Perhaps they’ve recently gotten a roof repair or replacement and are raving about how good their contractors were.
It’s also helpful to check online reviews. Make sure there is a good sample size for their rating if you’re using this method. You want to see multiple people giving 4- to 5-star reviews. It’s also a good idea to see if the roofing company responds to negative reviews and how.
Once you’ve narrowed your search to a few contractors, contact them and ask for proof of insurance and licensing. A professional roofer needs both and won’t hesitate to send you a copy. You can also ask them for references to see what their loyal customers say about them.
Check to see if they are a part of any professional organizations in the area. This isn’t a deal-breaker, but it is a bonus. For more information on how to find the best roofing service for your home, check out the video above.
