Let’s face it when you are looking for a roofer, either to replace or repair your roof, the biggest challenge is to find the right contractor.
Doing your homework and finding a quality, trustworthy roofer is defiantly worth the effort.
Here are a few things to look for when looking for a roofer
Similar to a badge of courage, manufacturer designations ensure the contractor has passed strict requirements and training.
Such as GAF, North America’s largest roofing manufacturer, Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Contractors Association, Florida’s Association of Roofers, CertainTeed Corporation, Attic Breeze, America’s Leader in Solar Powered Ventilation.
“Master Elite® Certification is GAF’s factory certification program that provides ongoing training to roofing contractors and assurance to you that the roof will be completed well and professionally. Only 3% of all roofing contractors have qualified as Master Elite® Choosing a GAF Master Elite® contractor is your assurance that you’ll be dealing with a quality, and dependable professional contractor not some “fly-by-nighter”.”
Better Business Bureau
It is important to look up a contractors rating with the BBB. This will ensure you stay away from ‘fly by night contractors’, that often do more damage than good. We’ve all heard the story on the news, a roofing service promising a homeowner came to repair their roof for almost nothing. Then they either use leftover materials, poor quality workmanship or worse takes your money and runs. Do some research and look the company up on the BBB website. Make sure they have an A or A+ rating. If they are not certified by the BBB, don’t use them.
Understand the Material Choices
If the contractor is only showing you a single option in shingles, may not have your best interest in mind. The quality, color, and style, can all affect your home or business. Don’t give into pressure!
