The roof is an essential component of any building. So when getting your roof repaired or upgraded, the work must be completed to the highest standards ensuring longevity and safety. However, when you’re putting the security of your roof in the hands of contractors, you must be cautious and ensure your roofing professional is reliable. You should also be very careful and hire only a company that is willing to fit your budget and meet your home’s requirements.

To help you select a professional who will satisfy your needs, here’s a list of the top five things to look for when hiring a roofing company. 

1. License and insurance
Roofing is a dangerous job, which is why we never recommend homeowners take it on themselves. It’s essential to have the right tools, materials, and safety equipment. It’s also vital to have experience. Reputable roofing contractors hold the requisite permits and licenses for every job they perform. A high-quality roofing installer will even carry all required insurance for its workers, which will cover them if someone is hurt during your roof’s installation. As a homeowner, you should never work with a contractor that can’t provide proof of proper licensing or insurance for its employees.

2. Pricing
In many cases, homeowners allow price to dictate the contractor they choose. As with most things in life, you get what you pay for. If you go with a roofing company that can give you a bargain price but can’t provide a list of happy customers, you’re probably going to end up with a substandard installation. In the roofing industry, you pay for what you get, and sometimes the cheapest isn’t always the best solution.

3. Reputation
Do your research on your roofer before availing of their services. Few people have tried to run off with the money, but more than often, the problem we see is homeowners choosing an out-of-state roofer, and then a couple of years down the road, they start having some issues, and the roofing company is no longer available. For this reason, it is vital that you do your research and find a roofing company with many good reviews about their services, especially after installation.

4. Experience
We wouldn’t say experience is of enormous importance, but the longevity of the company is also important when trying to figure out the experience of a company. Ask your contractor how long they have been in business. You also want to know if your roofing contractor has seen (and fixed) problems like yours. A poor roof installation from lack of experience leads to countless issues down the line, from leakages to significant structural damage that results in expenses of tens of thousands of dollars. With a well-established company, you can expect your roof to offer better insulation, avoid any leakages or sagging, and remain in top shape for decades.

5. Comfort
Most of us in the roofing industry are in the business of taking care of the customers we serve. Good companies form amazing relationships for years to come, so ask yourself who you feel comfortable going with. Companies that push only one product, color, or shingle type don’t have your best interests at heart. A roof is a significant investment for your home, so you should get precisely what you want. Find a roofing company that will listen to your desires and provide you with multiple options.
