What to consider before you hire a roofer?
As we outlined all-ready, choosing a roofer can be difficult and we wanted to extend on what we already covered and outline what you should consider when looking to identify a local and reputable roofing contractor, what are the things you need to consider as a basis to choose the best local company for the job:
This can be a difficult question to answer without being bias and one can alway debate as to which company is best to serve you needs but the following are some things to consider:
Consider some of these before you hire
Experience overall and the roofers experience in dealing with your specific job for example, if your roof is a flat roof, asking the question, are you a flat roof specialist?
Qualifications and certification on being able to do the work required. Are they more qualified than trainees doing the work?
Company reputation and overall credibility to stand behind the work to be done and guaranteed offered. Is the company enthusiastic to get the job and what is there reputation for the work already completed against their competitors?
Reliability and credibility of individuals or business, some people are more reliable than others but look for signs of reliance and consistency when asking questions and the answers and evidence given.
Insurance and work guarantees offered for project, is there any question as them standing over the job and coming back if there are any problems.
If you can speak to previous clients who got work done by the contractor.
Number of reviews the company has online and quality of reviews, good companies are enthusiastic to get consistent good reviews for the work they do and usually follow up on this as part of their work.
Roofing Address and contact details: does the roofer have consistent and reliable contact details for example, do the have a website, is the website address complete and correct and similar to other contact details on other platforms, if for example they have no postcode or office number on the address, don't hire them unless you are happy with there contact details.
