When it comes time to replace your roof, choosing the right roofing company is a decision you can’t afford to get wrong. At MRC Construction, we know the importance of a quality roofing job. Your roof protects your home and your family so you don’t want to just hire the cheapest contractor and hope for the best. Choosing a roofing company takes time and is not a decision you should rush. If you have never needed to hire a roofer before, it can be a tricky process.
Here are a few tips to help you choose the right roofing company for you.
Get recommendations and check references.
You wouldn’t hire an employee without checking their references first. The same should go for roofers. If any of your neighbors or nearby friends and family have had their roof replaced recently, ask them for recommendations. Ask lots of questions. You’ll want to know if they stuck to the time frame and initial estimate and if their customers are happy with their work.
Look into their licenses and insurance.
License requirements for roofers and contractors vary from state to state. Sometimes towns and counties have their own regulations as well. Check what the licensing rules are where you live and find out if the roofing companies you are considering comply with those regulations. You should also ask the roofers on your list what kind of insurance they have. If something goes wrong, you don’t want to be stuck with an uncovered expense.
Find out if they have an area of expertise.
Not all roofing jobs are the same, so you want to ensure that you are hiring a roofing company that is best suited to your needs. For example, some roofers have more experience with older homes than others. At MRC Construction, one of our specialties is asphalt shingle roofing in the classic New England style. Before you begin the process with any roofing company, make sure they can provide the service you are looking for.
Get estimates in writing.
Once you have a list of potential roofers, get all estimates in writing. Not only will it be easier for you to compare their prices and services, but it will also provide you with security and peace of mind once the work begins. When you have an estimate in writing, you have something tangible to reference if any confusion or added expenses arise.
