Hiring the right contractor is crucial to the success of your roof repair or replacement project. Before you work with one, however, you must first determine if the contractor is the perfect fit for your needs. Licenses, insurance and certifications serve as proof of the legitimacy of the company, but those aren’t the only criteria you need to consider.
It pays to look deeper into how the roofers do business, and you can get such information from their list of references. Here’s what you can expect when you get in touch with each one of them:
More often than not, a prospective roofer will pick names of previous customers who’ve been satisfied with the contractor’s workmanship and put them on the reference list. Thus, you should consider asking for an updated list, preferably those from the past five or so projects. In doing so, you can determine whether they are truly consistent with the services they provide or not.
A roof replacement project is a significant undertaking, which is why you need to work with a contractor that can meet and even exceed your expectations and provide excellent results. Consider typing the company name into an online search, and it will return a list of reviews from their recent customers. Read them to find out what they have to say about the roofing company and their overall experience with the contractors. Do they recommend them to others? Are they satisfied with the roofer’s professionalism and quality of service?
When obtaining a reference list from prospective contractors, make sure to ask for the names of their suppliers as well. They may have worked with the roofer for quite some time and will know about how they handle their finances. When you talk to the suppliers, watch how they discuss their working relationship with the roofing company. Their thoughts will give you an idea on the reliability of your prospect.
