Choosing a Residential Roofing Company

Choosing a Residential Roofing Company

Buying a new roof is one of the most important investments a homeowner will make. It is likely one of the more expensive investments as well, so choosing a residential roofing company who knows what they’re doing is critical. Choosing a residential roofing company is a process that requires time and research. You don’t want to be blind sighted by a bad contractor who won’t do the job right the first time. If you are considering putting a new roof on your home and are in search of a residential roofing company, use the following tips before any work is done.

1. Properly licensed – One of the most important things you’ll want to check for is that you are working with a licensed residential roofing company. Each state has its own laws for residential roofing companies, so you’ll want to check and make sure they are properly licensed. In addition to their license, a top residential roofing company will have other accreditation such as being BBB accredited or being registered on Angie’s List. These sites help to ensure the homeowner they are working with a credible business.

2. Permanent location – It’s important to check to make sure that the residential roofing company you are working with has a permanent place of business. They should provide you with an address, telephone number and even a tax id number. You may want to even take a drive by or stop in at their specified location to see how it looks.

3. Written contract – Make sure the residential roofing company you are working with gives you a detailed, written proposal that describes exact details of the work they’ll perform, including approximate starting and completion dates and payment procedures.

4. Pricing scams – Although it’s reasonable to assume you will be looking for a residential roofing company who will offer you a good price on a roof, beware of a company who quotes a job unreasonably low. The lowest price could quite possibly mean lowest in quality and safety. You’ll want to interview a few companies and choose the one you feel is most trustworthy to do the job right at a fair price.

5. Manufacturers used – When talking to the residential roofing company, make sure to ask which brands and manufacturers they use for supplies and materials. GAF roofing is one of the most trusted brands in the industry for example. The right roofing materials will make all the difference in the quality and outcome of your roof.
