Choosing a residential roofing contractor
Whether you’re having your own roof repaired or replaced or subcontracting work for another firm, whether you’re having a roof repaired or completely replaced, you need to be able to trust that the residential roofing contractor you hire will get the work done on time, with the budget and well enough that it won’t need to be done again for a while. This means that the first contractors to be ruled out are the storm chasers — roofers, or people pretending to be roofers, who visit your home immediately after a storm and offer their services. They have a well-earned reputation in Concord, NC for overcharging, doing slipshod work or just taking your money and running. Start by looking online for licenses, permits and insurance.
Finding the best of the good ones
Once you’ve eliminated the worst of the residential roofing contractors, it’s time to start looking for the best. A good roofing contractor makes a point of getting the work done on time and within the agreed-upon budget, with as little damage or debris as possible in the yard or garden, in order to keep the inconvenience for customers to a minimum. A good contractor should also be easy to stay in touch with, and should offer free estimates.
The Better Business Bureau has a list of roofing companies with the proper accreditation in every part of the country, including Charlotte, NC, as well as ratings of them. Angie’s List also offers ratings of residential roofing contractors. When you have a list of companies that look promising, look at their websites for testimonials from satisfied customers. Find out if the contractors are members of a professional association.
One way to make your life easier is to look for a local residential roofing contractor that has been in business for a good long time — say, ten years or so. Less than one tenth of one percent of building companies stay in business for this long, and they don’t do it by offering subpar service in a community where everyone knows them.
