Roof Damage – Searching for Contractors

Searching for a roofing contractor is a big deal. When there is roof damage and you need a new roof built, trusting the roofing contractor to do the job right is crucial, especially because you’re relying on the contractor being in business years from now to back up a warranty of 10 years. Most homeowners don’t think to ask the necessary questions, and get scammed. Don’t sit and wait around if you feel you have roof damage, and don’t be afraid to call a restoration company for help. Having an expert take a look is the first step on getting your home back under control. Here are some quality tips to get you a quality job.

roof damage from storms – hiring expert contractors

  1. Check out the Better Business Bureau report
    BBB.org keeps up to date on the companies that provide us services. Look for companies with A+ records.
  2. Hire local roofers. 
    Roofers that aren’t local are sometimes referred to as “storm chasers” and won’t be around for warranty service.
  3. Ask for references from other homeowner’s in your area for jobs within the past year.
    The roofing contractors with the best reputation should have homeowner’s testimonials when asked.
  4. How long has the company been in business?
    A roofing company that has been in business for many years will tend to be more stable and experienced with adequate cash flow and cash reserves to meet operating requirements. Dishonest roofing contractors will quickly open & close business under new names (or disappear altogether) in an effort to distance themselves from a poor reputation, unpaid bills and lawsuits. 
  5. Deal only with a factory-certified roofing contractor in your area
    GAF and CertainTeed are the two largest shingle and roofing material manufacturers in the USA.

This list is by no means everything you need to know, but it’s a good start in the search for the right roofing contractor.
