9 Tips for Hiring the Right Roofing Contractor

9 Tips for Hiring the Right Roofer

Roofing replacement is one of the biggest home improvement investments a typical homeowner will ever make.

Before hiring a roofer to handle your roofing repairs or re-roofing project, it’s important to conduct a thorough evaluation of roofing contractors in your area. It may take some time to shop around for a roofer, but your research will help to ensure a quality roofing job at a fair price.

9 Tips for Hiring the Right Roofing Contractor

  • Make sure your roofing contractor is licensed by your state.
  • Check if they carry adequate roofing insurance.
  • Request personal references.
  • Ask who will do the actual work (do they have their own team or is there a subcontractor).
  • A written estimate should detail the start/completion dates, materials to be used, workmanship guarantees, material guarantees and cleanup expectations.
  • Check the roofer’s online reviews at sites like Google Local, Yelp, InsiderPages or Yahoo Local.
  • Check the length and types of warranty they provide.
  • Find out how you can contact the roofing company, and who will be in charge of your repair or installation.
  • Make sure that your roofing contractor is an expert in installing or repairing your particular roofing material.

    Those are some solid tips yet so many homeowners aren’t thorough enough when searching for quality contractors sadly paying the price later.

    Licensed, insured and bonded is not enough. Look for certifications, trusted reviews & quality warranties. And choose wisely – there are a lot of rookies out there.

    I know Haag certification is a good one to have if the homeowners are dealing with insurance claims. Not necessarily a requirement but certainly a plus! Great points!

    I believe that the most important advice given in the article is to ask for references, as this is a way to determine how satisfied their past customers have been. In addition to this, I feel it’s a good idea to ask to see some work that they have done in the past. A good roofer should be happy to provide you with examples of their past work, which should let you see what kind of quality to expect.

    These are some really great tips for anyone looking to hire a roofer. I really liked your point about asking for references and reading reviews. The most important thing to look for is customer satisfaction; seeing if their previous customers have been satisfied with the way their roofs were done. Thanks so much for writing!

    Really good advice given here. People always seem to worry first about price and second about who’s actually doing the work. A bad roofing job can cost you way more in the long run than doing your diligence and hiring a good roofing company from the start. Thanks for sharing these tips.
