Roofing Contractor Selection Tips
Selecting a properly certified and high quality roofing contractor is important and often a difficult task for consumers who are unfamiliar with the roofing industry. It is important to select certified roofers who will be in business to honor their warranty in the future. There are a large number of roofing contractors who are not certified and have both low quality installations and poor workmanship. The average start-up business is usually closed within three years, and may be out of business when potential roofing problem could arise.
The following are tips and important questions that can help you select a professional roofing contractor…
How long has the company been in business?
An established company will most likely be around in the future should any problems arise.
Does the contractor have a permanent business office address, phone, and email?
An established contractor should be able to provide a business address, phone, and email. A permanent business address is a sign of a stable company.
Does the company supply a written contract and estimate (and do they require a deposit)?
All job specifications and prices should be supplied in writing. Established companies with strong financial stability usually do not require a deposit. Deposits are common, be wary of any contractor requesting more than 1/3 of the cost of the project.
Check to see if the company is a member of the Better Business Bureau and the local Chamber of Commerce.
Research all potential contractors on the Better Business Bureau and your local Chamber of Commerce. Look for the overall business rating and keep in mind the general size of the company when checking for complaints.

Does the company have liability insurance?
This is important as an established roofing contractor company should have liability insurance.
Check to see if the contractor is part of local and national industry associations.
A strong established roofing contractor should be a member of trade associations.
Look for a contractor who is a certified installer of the products they offer.
Certified contractors can offer stronger warranties on the products they install and follow stricter installation guidelines.
Look for a contractor who offers emergency service.
A contractor who offers emergency service will be able to address a serious problem quickly, even after regular business hours.
Ask the roofing contractor for references of previous customers.
An established company should have a long list of satisfied customers who are willing to be contacted.
Is communication an easy task with the company?
Communication should be easily accessible between the customer and the company.
