It’s 7:30pm and raining outside, and you notice a small water stain on your living room ceiling.
You grab your phone and ask Facebook friends for roofing company recommendations.
Now that you’ve got a bunch of roofers, all you need to do is find the right roofing company to get the job done.
Your Facebook friends gave you so many roofing companies, it can be overwhelming trying to choose one. Replacing your roof is a long term investment for your home, so hiring the right company is extremely important.
Here are top 3 tips to help homeowners when choosing a roofing contractor…
The first tip is finding a roofer that will discuss every detail of the roofing project and materials without skipping over anything. This is super important and not only shows their willingness to take the time to educate you on the roof replacement process, but also shows they aren’t hiding anything and they’re trustworthy.
When a roofing contractor is able to effectively communicate and willing to explain terms you may not be familiar with, it gives you confidence and helps establish a relationship. Lastly, pay attention to how they follow-up with you and their professionalism to ensure you’re making the right decision.
Go online and check a provider’s Google rating. These ratings show how well the business interacts with its customers. Google often tracks how long a business has been operational, their transparency with customers, and even their history of complaints and how they were dealt with.
Google has a 5-star rating system designed to inform users with a full understanding of how well a roofing contractor serves their customers. Beyond the Google, check out your potential roofing company’s website, Facebook page, Buildzoom rating, and third party certifications. The more reviews and higher the ratings, the more you can rest assured that you will get a quality job.
A lifetime warranty in the roofing industry equates to 50 years with shingle manufacturers. It’s essentially a guarantee that the roofing shingles and underlayment installed will not fail, and if it does, the roofing manufacturer will replace or repair it. A full, non-prorated lifetime warranty is only extended to the customers of certified roofing contractors. It shows confidence in the roofer’s work, and the warranty can also be transferred to the next homeowner if you decide to sell the property.
Replacing your roof can get expensive if you wait too long… just like anything else. Making sure you’re educated on the roof materials and installation will allow you to get the type of roof you want at the lowest possible price.
