Roofing projects are an investment, and it’s important that you choose the roofing contractor you can trust! After all, you want your roof repair or replacement to be done right the first time, and within budget.
In today’s blog post from Legacy Roofing & Solar, we’re sharing a few tips for choosing a good roofing contractor. Continue reading to learn more, and if you’d like a free inspection and quote for your next roofing project, contact our team!
1. Training & Certifications
Take every step possible to learn about the roofing contractor’s training, experience, and certifications of the roofing contractor. A roofing team needs to have highly qualified team members that can get the job done right.
2. Licensed & Insured
Make sure that your roofing contractor has worker’s compensation and liability insurance to protect their workers and your home. Every reputable roofing company should be more than happy to talk with you about their licenses and insurance. After all, it protects both of us.
3. Get A Written Contract
A written contract protects you, and if a roofing contractor doesn’t want to provide you with a formal written contract for their work, you should take your business elsewhere. Make sure that the contract outlines payment schedules, roofing materials, and a list of any subcontractors that will be involved in the work. The contract should also include a start and end date for the project as well as how your home and landscaping will be protected.
4. Educate Yourself
We started our blog to help educate people like you about the roofing process, and before you sign a contract, educate yourself on what is being done to your roof. Are you getting minor roof restoration or a full roof replacement? What are the pros and cons of getting a metal roof rather than an asphalt roof? Our team is more than happy to answer questions you may have, but you should also take your time to educate yourself about roofing since you’re investing in the roofing process!
5. Be Patient
Finding the right roofing company doesn’t happen in a single day! Do your research, get multiple opinions, read reviews, and contact as many roofing contractors as you need to find the one that works for you.
When it comes to choosing a roofing company, don’t make your decision solely on price. A professional roofer using high-quality materials won’t offer the cheapest prices. If you find a contractor that says they can start tomorrow at half the price of other contractors, that’s a sign that it’s probably not a good person to do business with. Replacing or repairing your roof is a big investment, and you shouldn’t choose a company that will do a shoddy job.
