How to Choose Roofer

A home is the largest investment most people will make in their lifetime. So, when it’s time to repair or replace your roof, it’s important to protect that investment by hiring the right roofer. Here are a few guidelines you can follow, to ensure you are making the smart choice:

Ask the people you trust for recommendations: Your neighbors, your family, your friends, or your Home Owner’s Association are all good options. Next, check the Better Business Bureau, Angie’s List, Yelp and Nextdoor.

Choose a local contractor: Make sure that the company that you choose is local. This means that they are not just operating locally now but have an established business and reputation in the community.When possible, look at the contractor’s work in your neighborhood.

Check to make sure the contractor is properly insured: Your insurance broker can check over the certificate to make sure the Workers Comp is VALID.

Price isn’t everything: Never choose a company based on price. In the long run, you get what you pay for. Customers that are sold on price as their sole criteria ultimately end up spending more money to fix problems, many of which would have been avoided by hiring a reputable, established roofing company with a comprehensive proposal.
