- Liability Insurance: A reputable roofing company will have liability insurance and workers’ compensation. When researching roofers, ask to see verification of their insurance. This protects you as the consumer in that it ensures that if something happens to go wrong, it will be properly taken care of.
- Local: A local roofer will have established a reputation within the community, making them much easier to research and track down. If they are well established, there is very little chance they will up and vanish on you, which is important if you need to make use of warranties.
- Communication: Reputable companies communicate clearly with their customers. You should be able to call them with concerns or questions and get a prompt response. If they fail to return calls or fulfill requests for information, you likely won’t want to entrust them with the job of repairing or installing your roof.
- Reviews and Recognitions: Customer reviews can help you get a sense for the reliability of a roofing company. If there is a long history of good reviews and only a few bad ones, then you likely have a reputable company. Also, certain recognitions such as SELECT ShingleMaster from CertainTeed can further establish their reliability as they adhere to specific industry standards.
Good reviews, strong communication, and a solid reputation are all important items to consider when selecting a reputable roofing company. These are far more important than price alone—in fact, a company which gets business by strictly on low prices is probably making cuts somewhere, perhaps by using lower quality materials or neglecting to carry liability insurance.
