Tips On Choosing The Right Roofing CompanyDaniel
You wouldn’t restore a roof by yourself if you knew the final result was going to be poor quality or unsafe. So, how do you know a professional is not going to cut corners and execute an equally poor job? Finding a roofing company that is qualified, professional, and dependable is a hard task, especially in a shorter time frame or you simply have no clue where to begin.
To save you stress and money from choosing an unprofessional roofing service, this blog will take you through ways to differentiate between a professional and potentially ‘bad’ roofing company.
Here are some tips to keep in mind when choosing the right roofing company
Licenses & Insurance
Did you know that between 2015 to 2019, there were 122 people killed following a fall from working at heights? (Safe Work Australia)
Evidently, roofing is a risky home improvement project. Risks may include – personal injury such as falling off a roof, or the financial risk of a DIY roofing project completed with the incorrect installation, leading to further repairs being required.
Licenses and insurance help protect homeowners and roofing companies in a variety of scenarios. An experienced, professional roofing company will carry the necessary licenses and insurance in case anything unfortunate happens on the job.
Be Aware –
One sign of an untrustworthy roofing company is one that refuses to show you or informs you they have “misplaced” their licenses and/or insurance. This is a big red flag, and you may need to find a new roofing company to work with.
Your roof is only as good as the quality of installation and the materials used. A professional roofing company emphasises their quality of material, workmanship, and training. They also should be pleased to inform you of their practices, instilling confidence that they can offer the best quality roof.
Be Aware –
Lower quality materials may be cheaper, but the last thing you should do is to choose a roofing company based on costs alone. You could end up with a roof that falls apart which can turn dangerous quickly, causing you to spend more money to fix it!
Where Possible, Go Local
When you are looking to choose the right roofing company, get opinions from neighbours or others in your local vicinity. A locals’ opinion can be very useful, especially in finding an established roofer that has a trustworthy reputation in the area.
Testimonials & Reviews Matter
Checking testimonials and reviews is one of the best ways to gain more information about a roofing company and their services.
Take opinions from locals and people you know to find out all the details about different roofing companies, and here are some questions to ask:
- Were the workers punctual?
- How was the quality of work?
- What were the employees’ behaviour like?
- Was the job completed in a timely fashion or were there times where no one showed up?
- What was the condition of the site left in when the job was completed?
