3 Tips to Keep in Mind When Looking for a Roofing Contractor

Whether you're installing seamless gutters or replacing the shingles on the roof, roofing projects require careful planning due to the complexity of each task. It's the reason why we highly recommend you work with a roofing company as they have the right tools, equipment and experience to do the job.

But how do you know if the prospective roofer is a good one? In this post, Colorado Roof Toppers share three tips to keep in mind when looking for a roofing contractor.

1. Always Go Local

Working with a local residential roofing contractor is advantageous in two ways. First, the company operates locally which means it's easier to get in touch with their team and for them to get to your home quickly, with the latter being especially important since it makes delivering equipment or materials easier.

Second, a local roofing company has a more established local presence and reputation. On top of that, they also have better local knowledge and that means better decisions when it comes to roofing materials in regards to your location's climate and weather patterns.

2. Ask About Insurance

You also want to make sure that the contractor in question has both liability and worker's insurance, both of which protect your home from unnecessary costs. An experienced local contractor will have no trouble providing any certificates you ask of them, though you can also call the insurance carrier for more confirmation.

3. Don't Choose a Company Based on Price

A roofing company may be offering you a lower price than a competitor, but low price doesn't always translate to better savings. Roofers who cut costs often invest in cheaper roofing materials that are inexpensive but are poor in quality. That said, we're not discouraging homeowners from looking at savings; rather, price shouldn't be the sole criteria of your choice of roofer.
