Qualities To Look For In A Roofing Contractor

If you’ve spent any time in the Sun City, you’ll know that there are myriad roofing companies across the city and surrounding area. As a result, it can be difficult to know where to go for your home or business. In our latest blog, we give you our best tips for finding the perfect roofing contractor!

Go Local, Licensed, Insured

When you look for a new roofer to hire, you should prioritize going for a local company that is licensed and insured. Often, roaming contractors may try to offer roofing services, only to disappear after any issues are discovered.

Licensing and insurance are important because it ensures that your contractor has the insurance to cover any issues like worker injury or mishandling of the project. It gives you the peace of mind to know that any issues can be taken care of.

Don’t Let Price Be The Deciding Factor

As consumers, we are often conditioned to look for the best price or deal. For most things, this is a savvy way to keep money in your pocket and stay afloat. With roofing, though, price should not be the deciding factor for your decision.

The reason for this is because reputable, licensed, and insured roofers tend to have a higher price tag upfront, while less experienced or prepared roofers charge less. Hiring a cheap roofer may save money upfront, but don’t be surprised if you experience expensive problems soon after your repair or installation.

Communication Is Key

In roofing, communication is paramount between the contractor and customer. Especially for jobs with longer timelines and more complexity, you should be able to receive frequent updates about the status of the project.

When you talk to potential contractors, ask them about their policies regarding communication. Checking out reviews from previous clients may also give you valuable insight into their communication skills. 

Check Out Their Past Work

If you want to take your roofing research deeper, you can ask to see your prospective company’s past work. The roofing contractor should be able to provide pictures and examples of their work that you can inspect before making the final decision. If at all possible, try to contact their prior clients or read reviews to get a different opinion on their services.

Get Agreements In Writing

Any agreements that you and your roofing contractor come to should be clearly stated in writing. As you speak to your contractor, take notes and make sure those notes match the written agreements.

Ask If They Are An Authorized Installer

Another important tip for looking for a roofer is to ask if they are an authorized installer. An authorized installer is a company appointed by a manufacturer to handle and install certain products. Authorized installers have specialized training and expertise with their

Don’t Be Afraid To Shop Around

When looking for a roofing contractor, don’t be afraid to speak with multiple contractors before settling on one. Much like how you may look at several cars and dealership before picking one, you should do the same for your roofing contractor.
