Here, we are going to speak from the customer’s point of view, not from the point of a professional roofer doing a roof replacement. After all, if a roofer is going to any internet website to find out what he should know to do a roof replacement, well they are probably not someone you want working on your roof.
No, we’re talking here from a customer experience, and we can’t emphasize this enough, the number 1 criteria is their experience in the business.
We can only assume that contractors hire the best roofers, so again we’re not talking about individual roofers but what do you need to look for in a roofing contractor?
So what is the best way to find a good rather than a humdrum roofing company?
We’d say start with experience. In our opinion, most people will be much better off hiring a roofing company with 3 to 7 years of experience than one that’s just been in business for 6 months.
There may be exceptions, but do you really want to trust your roof to a new roofer?
Check the word of mouth
Check as many friends, co-workers and family you can find. Chances are one or two of them have had a roofer put a new roof on their home. Did they do a great job at a reasonable price? Then consider them on your list of candidates.
Check with lumber supply companies
Another way to get great references besides going on the internet to Yelp or Angie’s List is check with local lumber suppliers. Ask them who they would recommend as a local roofer.
Finally, ask the companies for customer references
If they supply them, then great, call them up. If they won’t supply them, take a pass.
Also check their license and insurance
Before hiring any type of roofer, you want to make sure they are licensed and for your protection, make sure they have adequate damage insurance.
