How can I find a reliable roofing contractor?

Many homeowners let price determine the contractor they choose. You get what you pay, as with many things in life. You’re likely to get a substandard roof installation if you choose a roofing company with low prices but no satisfied customers. These are the 9 things to consider before hiring a roofing company:

1. How long have they been in the business?

A mechanic who has only been working for two weeks wouldn’t be qualified to fix your car. You wouldn’t go to heart surgery with someone who just graduated from school. Why choose a roofer who hasn’t had a track record of high-quality work?

Fly-by-night contractors are known for disappearing in order to avoid having to pay damages and then reopening months later under a different name. Avoid falling prey to these unscrupulous contractors by choosing a company with decades of experience and a solid record.

2. Double-check your insurance and licensing

Being a roofing contractor is a dangerous job. We don’t recommend homeowners do it themselves. It is important to have the correct tools, materials, safety equipment, and training. Experience is also crucial. Reputable roofing contractors have the required permits and licenses to perform every job.

High-quality roofing contractors will have all the required insurance to cover their workers in case of injury during roof installation. You should not hire a contractor who can’t show proof of insurance for their employees.

3. Take a look at the past work

Reputation is the most important thing for businesses who provide services. You can find independent, impartial reviews of past customers who have used the services of a business on the internet. 81% of consumers research online before making a purchase. It pays to research before you spend your money.

What are the opinions of other homeowners about the roofing contractor? Ask the company for a list or contact information. You can also check online to see past jobs.

4. It’s not just the price that matters.

You may have heard it before when you were considering a home remodel. Nobody really knows the origins of “three estimates”, and nobody seems to know why it is three.

There’s no reason to limit yourself to just three estimates. Neither should you limit your search for a roofing contractor to one or two estimates. Instead, spend time speaking with potential roofing contractors until you feel you have all the information necessary to make an informed decision.

5. Finance agreements are written.

Professional documentation should cover every aspect of your roof installation. It’s also important to understand the financing terms. A good roofing company will assign a qualified employee to guide you through the contract and answer your questions about payment. The agreement should not be complicated or left up in the air.

6. Ask about what to do if you aren’t satisfied with your work.

There is always the chance of something going wrong, no matter how well you plan your job. How will your company deal with an error? This is something that you should know well in advance. Are you willing to spend hours calling the company trying to reach someone? Is the company going to take your money?

KM Roof and Home Repair won’t take any payment until you are 100% satisfied with your roof. We guarantee that we will fix any problem you have with your roof.

7. Ask about unplanned repairs.

Unplanned repairs and emergencies are unfortunately more common than the exception in home improvement. You’re more likely to discover additional problems as soon as you begin tearing down walls and cabinets.

The same principle applies to roofs. Sometimes decking becomes rotten, damaged by moisture or water, and the crew must repair it before any more moisture gets inside a home. Ask your roofing contractor about how they handle unexpected repairs. You will be able to anticipate what you can expect, even if you are surprised.

8. Is your roof going to be removed by the roofing contractor?

Some roofing companies will replace an old roof with new shingles. This is almost always a bad idea. It adds weight to roofs that are already old and in need of new decking. It doesn’t address the underlying issues, such as damage from old shingles.

This is similar to applying a band-aid to an infected wound by putting new shingles on top of an existing roof. While you can cover the damage, it does not address the root cause of the injury. While it can be a quick and inexpensive solution in the short term, it will end up costing you much more long term.

9. Ask the roofing contractor if he is an approved installer.

Are you a preferred roofer and an authorized installer for the shingle maker? This is an important point to consider as manufacturers will not honor warranties if a roof is installed without authorization.

Call KM Roof and Home Repair if you are looking for a reputable company that can handle all of your roofing needs.
