Roofing contractors can be your best friend when your home is in desperate need of roof repair. However, not every contractor is up to snuff and that can make it hard to trust a particular roofing company. Luckily, there are many ways to find reputable roofers that you can trust.
If you’re in the market for a new roof or in need of roof repair, here are some tips for finding professional roofers for the job.
Ask the community
You’d be surprised how many of your neighbors and friends have used a roofing contractor in the past who did a great job. It’s always a good idea to ask around locally for some references rather than hitting the internet first, primarily because there’s less chance of a scam. Roofers who are well-known within the community and have provided exceptional work in the past are likely to continue doing so.
Look at your warranty
If you had your roof installed by professionals then you could possibly have a warranty that might cover your current damages. However, there are many roofing companies who don’t provide warranties and don’t do a very good job either. For instance, the life of your roof can be cut by as much as 20% if installed over an existing roof and if your old company didn’t provide a warranty, you’re now stuck with the resulting damages. Check to see if they have any certifications or designations and if they provide warranties.
Don’t sign too early
If you feel as though you’re being pressured by your contractor to sign a contract before you’ve filed your insurance claim or before you’ve had a chance to look over the terms, walk away. You want to ensure that you’re doing everything legally and the right way, despite what the contractor is pushing you to do. If it feels as though they’re hasty to have you sign, it might be an indication of a bad deal.
There are many contractors out there who aren’t honest about their work and won’t provide you with a quality roof. When it comes to your roof and your home, trust the experts at Pro Home Services, Inc to get the job done and done right.
