Finding a high-quality roofer for installation, maintenance, and repairs can be tough. There are a lot of roof companies and different options to consider. This video explains the most important things to look for when you’re hiring a roofer.
The first thing to look for is that the roofer is actually in your area. It will help you avoid extra costs associated with the transportation of labor and materials. There are also some large interstate moving companies who move in after big storms, do a shoddy job, and then bail. Getting them to repair their work or stick to their warranty can be difficult. Stay local, instead.
You also need a roofer who is licensed, bonded, and insured. Most states require roofers to have a license to work. Bonds are essentially guarantees that the roofing company has a good business model and operates ethically. Insurance protects you, your property, and the roofers if there is an accident.
You also want to see if the roofers are certified by roofing material manufacturers. There are a lot of different brands with different best practices for installation and repairs. If the manufacturer certifies the roofer in their brand, you will be getting an expert job.
