How to Choose the Right Roofer

How to Choose the Right Roofer

Choose the right contractor.

Choosing a roofer you can trust requires a careful screening process. Your roof plays a critical role in your home’s weather protection, so you need to ensure it is cared for by a reliable and experienced professional. Unfortunately, with so many roofers to choose from, the search can be overwhelming, especially if you’re a first-time homeowner.

Here to make the selection process a bit easier is a quick guide from roof storm damage company EZ Home Solutions.

Go Local

Local roofers are your best bet because they have an in-depth understanding of the local climate and know which roofing materials are most suitable for it. They also will be aware of local building codes and can help you secure any permits that are needed before the work begins. In addition, they have a reputation to maintain in your community, which holds them to a high standard. A quick online search should provide you with a list of roofers in your area.  You can also ask your neighbors for recommendations.

Check for Credentials

Better Business Bureau ratings, proper licenses, manufacturer certifications, and employee and subcontractor insurance coverage are just some of the credentials your prospective roofer should be able to present you with. They should also offer strong warranties for both products and services. You can ask more about this when your roofer conducts a free roof inspection.

Confirm Physical Address

Roofing companies with brick and mortar offices are less likely to be storm chasers, i.e., roofing scammers that target homes that have recently been damaged by storms. These scammers often do a subpar job and have no physical address so homeowners aren’t able to track them down for compensation.
