Going through the process of vetting prospective roofing contractors can be a daunting task. A lot of homeowners even push off roof renovation projects because they simply don’t want to go through the trouble of searching, vetting, and ultimately choosing a roofer.
Fortunately, we’re here to help. The process isn’t nearly as difficult when you know what to look for, what questions to ask, and what warning signs to be cautious of. In fact, we think it can even be pretty straightforward and simple.
That’s why we’ve put together a checklist that helps explain how to choose the right roofing contractor for your home. This checklist identifies several key elements you should consider as you start looking for a roofing company that will do quality work.
Customer Reviews & Company Reputation
If you start your roofing contractor search online, then reviewing customer feedback is going to be one of the most crucial steps in your pursuit. Online reviews of a company will give you great insight that explains how previous customers who have already done business with the contractor feel about the work done to their home.
There are numerous places where you can find reviews of a company, but here’s a short list to help you get started.
- Simply google the business name of the company you’re interested in and their Google My Business listing should appear. This listing will display reviews (if they have any) as well as a rating out of 5 stars.
- Angie’s List
We recommend looking at reviews on these third party websites in the event that a company has cherry-picked reviews to display on their own website. Going to multiple sites will give you a comprehensive overview of their reputation with past clients.
