Tips to Finding the Right Roofing Contractor to Replace Your Homes Roof
If you are considering getting a roof replacement, it’s a significant investment that can cost thousands of dollars no matter what type of style, color, or material is used. The material is only a small portion that makes up the total cost of a replacement roof. With that being said, the majority of the cost goes to the skilled labor that is needed to complete this job, which is why it is so important to choose the absolute best and most experienced roofing contractor! Hiring a trusted and reliable contractor to replace your home’s roof is the best way to ensure your pricey investment is in good hands.
Roofing Contractor Recommendations
The best way to find a trusted roofing contractor is to ask a friend or neighbor for recommendations that they’ve had good experiences with in the past. If this is not an option, you can check the yellow pages under “roofing.” The best way to do it is to narrow down your choices to two roofing contractors that both seem trustworthy, reliable and have been in business for at least 5 years.
Available Roofing Contractors
Check the availability of roofing contractors because they could be booked for a while. Once you find out the availability and it works for you, get references and addresses from previous jobs they’ve done. If you cannot get any references from them, do not continue on.
Check Past Roofing Jobs
If it’s possible to go see a past job the contractor has done, make sure the shingles are in a clean line and have straight lines in alternate rows. The shingles should be clean cut on the end, so they are perfectly in line with the edge of the roof.
After checking out the roof, if it’s possible to contact the reference, ask the following questions:
- Were you satisfied with the job done by this contractor?
- Did the job go over the set budget?
- Did the roofer clean up after the job was done?
- If the roof leaked, did the roofer respond in a responsible manner and charge you for the extra work?
- Were the workers helpful and answer any questions you might have had?
- What was the warranty like?
- Would you recommend using this roofer?
