5 Tips for Hiring the Right Roofing Contractor

November 02, 2018

One of the most difficult and important steps when trying to replace your roof is picking the right person for the job. 

Finding a contractor who is trustworthy, honest and professional may seem like a daunting task, but when armed with this list you should be able to weed out the ones who are not worth your business.

5 tips for hiring a roofing contractor:

  1. Get local referrals

There is less chance of potential issues or scams when you choose a contractor from your community. They are more familiar with local rules and code regulations and have a relationship with area crews and suppliers.

  1. Insurance is a must

Make sure that your contractor has worker’s compensation and liability insurance. Ask to see the certificates and actually call the insurance carrier to confirm that they are valid.

  1. Stay local

Choose a local contractor using referrals from friends, family and members of your community.  This will generally help you avoid being the victim of a scam or suffering potential roofing issues after the work is done.  This means that they are not just operating locally now, but have an established business and reputation in the community. 

  1. Get all details of the job in writing

To avoid confusion and keep misunderstandings at bay request that all details discussed between you and your contractor be put into writing.  This keeps everyone accountable and keeps all aspects of the job clear to both parties.

  1. Communication is key

Did they promptly return your calls and follow through with initial promises? If not, then make sure you communicate your concerns to the company representative. 

If your concerns are not resolved, walk away. Communication is key to every business. If you aren’t getting what you need on the front end when they are trying to get your business, they will most likely not do any better once the job begins.
