Hiring a quality roofer can be difficult for homeowners due to the saturation of the roofing market. It’s important to avoid hiring just anyone, though, because the quality of the roofers you hire will determine how much you will need to invest in roof repairs down the line. This video explains the top tips to finding high-quality roofers near you.
The first tip is to ask family and friends for a referral. If they had a roofing job done on their home, recently, ask them if they were happy with their contractor. Even if they weren’t, at least you know a company to avoid.
You also need to make sure the business is licensed and insured. Check their website or go visit their shop. Another red flag is if the business doesn’t have a brick-and-mortar location. Licenses and insurance will protect you and the roofer for your project, so make sure they have the right credentials.
You can also check the Better Business Bureau and online reviews to see if there were any complaints made against the business. Almost every business will inevitably have one or two, but if there is a pattern of shoddy workmanship or contract disputes, you should avoid that roofer at all costs.
