TOP THINGS TO LOOK FOR WHEN CHOOSING A ROOFING CONTRACTOR
Pretty much everyone allows the price to dictate which one roofing contractor they will choose because residential roof repairs and replacements are not a cheap investment.
As with most other things in your life, you get what you pay for. However, price is not a guarantee that you won’t go wrong. Therefore, here are some things to look for before hiring a roofing company.
1. BE PATIENT
First things first: finding the right roof contractor can take a long time. Do your homework – research. Word of mouth is the best way to start.
Ask for recommendations, check online reviews, and contact as many roofing contractors as possible to see who’s out there available and what they offer.
2. HOW LONG HAVE THEY BEEN IN THE ROOFING BUSINESS?
You probably wouldn’t entrust important things to people who have been on the job for one or two weeks.
There is plenty of fly by night roofing contractors who are well known for disappearing when it comes to paying damages. And guess what? They reopen a few months later under a new name.
Finding someone who has been for decades in this industry means only one thing – they are professionals – otherwise, they would not succeed in today’s saturated and highly competitive market. The longer they have been in the businesses means that they will be around if something goes wrong.
3. DOUBLE CHECK THEIR LICENSING AND INSURANCE
As you may already know – roofing is a dangerous job – never ever try taking it on yourself. It requires extensive experience, knowledge, the right materials, tools, and height safety equipment.
A high quality roofing contractor not only holds the necessary accreditations for each and every job they do but also carry insurance for their workers in charge of covering them if something happens.
This means that you should never work with a roofing contractor that’s not licensed and insured.
4. ASK ABOUT GETTING A FINANCING AGREEMENTS / QUOTES IN WRITING
Every aspect of residential roof repairs or replacements needs to be diligently documented.
But what’s even more important is to understand the financing terms. A professional roofing company should walk you through the entire process step by step and hand in hand to answer all the questions you have about payment.
No single part of the financing agreement should be left up in the air.
SHOULD YOU REPLACE OR REPAIR YOUR ROOF?
There’s no denying when a roof is completely destroyed by hail, windstorm, or even fire needs to be fixed or replaced.
But before determining which one you need, a roof repair or replacement, there are several things you need to take into account.
Knowing how long you plan on staying there, how old your roof is, etc., gives you a better insight if it is time to replace your roof or only fix it (although this depends on other things as well.)
If you are on a tight budget and cannot afford a new roof, you need to find a Tallaght roofing company that is able to perform repairs until you get on your feet.
