What To Look for in Quality Roofing Contractors.

So you need a new roof. Chances are you took a quick look on google, perhaps searched “roofing contractors near me”, and came up with a list of companies. Before you hire someone, here are some important things to ask and look for. roofing contractors

  1. Licensed Roofing Contractors. If an individual or company doesn’t have proper licensing in the state of Florida, you can run into a whole host of problems. From the quality of the work done, to the permitting process, without a license, your job will get held up. And worse, it could come out badly.
  2. Amount of Time in Business. Experience matters. This doesn’t mean that you have to automatically disregard any company that recently formed. However, when you speak with them, ask about their roofing experience and for past projects and recommendations.
  3. Project Portfolio. A roofing company should have a solid project portfolio that demonstrates their past work. This is a great way to be able to see if they provide the kind of roofing you desire for your home. It also helps to see what kind of experience they have, and if their work is up to your standards.
  4. Reviews. These days, there is a ton of transparency online about customer experiences with various companies. Do your research! Look up their reviews on Google, Yelp, BBB, Facebook, and other platforms.
  5. Insurance. You don’t want to run into any issues, should any worker get hurt on your property during the roof installation. Make sure to find out if the roofing contractors are fully insured.
  6. Warranties and Damages. Make sure to check out what the roofing company provides as far as warranties and repairs. Also, should you be unsatisfied with the work, what is their protocol? These kinds of services may seem unnecessary, but they come into play more often than you think.

Honesty, Transparency, and Open Communication
