Roof maintenance can be an issue for anyone who owns a home, particularly if there are issues with leaking or the insulation. However, many of these issues can be resolved, especially when you bring in a quality roofing company. Keep reading for some helpful tips on how to find a good roofer.
Never hire a roofing contractor who cannot provide references.
Read online reviews. Look at pictures of their previous work. Make sure that they have the testimonials to back up their claims of quality work (you can read some of Crazy Horse Roofing’s client reviews in the sidebar to the right or on our homepage!).
Take the time to question your contractor prior to signing any contract.
One important question to ask is how many nails they will put in each shingle. Generally, if they say three, that isn’t enough. Ask them about the methods they use to find out whether or not they give good answers. If the answers aren’t adequate, keep looking.
When you hire a contractor for your roofing project, do some research.
Don’t hire the cheapest or first company you locate. Instead, look into numerous contractors in the area. You can check them out online, ask people that have previously used them, or find a service that will help find workers you can trust.
You never want to pay for everything upfront if it isn’t necessary.
A 25% deposit is typical, but you shouldn’t pay anything over that until the work is completed. It could be a sign that their work will be sub-par or that they are trying to scam you.
If you want to save some money when you get a contractor, you should find one that has employees working for them.
The finished job is typically much cheaper because of the group effort put forth by the roofers. A person working alone will often charge the same price but will work more slowly. Make sure the labor cost is not too high.
The more you know about how to find quality roofing professionals, the more confident you will be when it’s time to make important decisions.
