Strategies for Finding and Choosing a Roofing Contractor

There are a number of reasons why you might need to hire a roofing contractor. Your roof may have started leaking or you may have recently purchased an older house and would like a roof inspection done. Whatever your reason, it is important that you chose a quality roofer so that you can be sure that the job is done right.

In an article entitled Ideas and Strategies For Choosing A High Quality Roofing Contractor, which was published at slideshare.net, the author gives several tips that homeowners can use when comparison shopping. These include:

  • Ask each roofing company about their supplied guarantees and warranties
  • Ask friends, family and neighbors for recommendations
  • Ensure that all contractors you are considering are licensed and covered by liability insurance
  • Find out the companies’ policies on safety
  • Avoid working with storm-chasers; make sure that you are choosing an established, local company
  • Ask for estimates in writing
  • Check for negative feedback with the Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List

By ensuring that all of the above factors are met, you can be reasonably sure that the contractor you select is a quality one.
