Top 3 Tips for Hiring a Roofing Contractor

When you want to install or replace a roof, you want to be 100% sure that the roofing contractor you are hiring is qualified, competent and reliable enough to provide you the solutions you are looking for. The fact is that roofing is an expensive job, and it’s not something you upgrade every now and then; therefore it makes a lot of sense to curb your impulse to hire the first contractor you come in touch with, and be a little more selective with your choice.



Top 3 Tips for Hiring a Roofing Contractor

Here are the Top 3 tips for hiring a roofing contractor:

  • Check Reputation– This becomes one of the best ways to ensure you are hiring a vetted roofing contractor. Today, it’s not difficult to find online reviews and testimonials from customers who have used the services of a particular company. Check social media sites and you will get a general feel about the credibility of a particular contractor. They should be able to provide his full name and address (and shouldn’t furnish a P.O. Box number).

They should also have a valid roofing contractor license (this is different from a business license). Experience is another factor that is closely linked to reputation. Opt for an experienced contractor; a mediocre one will not be able to survive in the market for too long, without a blot on his reputation, and it’s important to ask them to provide references.

  • Insurance–  The company should also have the liability protection to protect the homeowner, in the event of an accident.
  • Guarantees & Warranties– This is another important aspect. A well-established roofing contractor always provides longer workmanship guarantees. These are different from the warranties provided by the roofing material manufacturer

Other Factors

In addition, check for the responsiveness of the contractor and whether he is proactive in their approach. It’s also very important that you don’t necessarily settle for the company that provides the lowest quote – they might just be cutting corners.

Always keep in mind, that your roof is a major investment and that the installation has to last for decades. For excellent roofing solutions, call DC Roofing and Exterior on (812) 344-5750. You can also send us your queries via this online form.
