Top 10 Qualities to Look for in a Roofing Company

Choosing the right Roofing Contractor

There are many qualities any company that you are trusting your roof repair to should have. Your life and your family’s life (and finances) are in the hands of the team you trust to get the job done. Not all roofing companies meet the standards so be sure they at least have these attributes:

Licensed. Check to make sure you are hiring a licensed roofing company. In the state of Alabama, a roofing contractor is required by law to obtain a license. In order to pass, the applicant must pass the Alabama Business and Law exam.

Bonded. When a contracting company is bonded, the customer is protected against any mishaps, and are assured the job will be completed to specifications.

Insured. It is important that the roofing team you hire has insurance to protect against any damage to your property or third party injury.

References. Be sure your contractor has plenty of verifiable references.

Local. It is imperative that the roofing company you choose is local. You don’t want them to disappear overnight.

Established business. Check to see how long the company you are considering has been in business.

Skilled workers. A company can only be as good as their employees. Make sure the company you go with hires ONLY skilled, professional roofers with good work ethics.

Courteous staff. It’s important that ALL of the people on staff are courteous when you are deciding upon a company you will trust with your roof. If you call and a rude receptionist answers, you might cross that company off your list right away.

Works with insurance. If you are filing an insurance claim for the job at hand, be sure to check that the roofing company works with insurance. Not all roofing companies do. And if they do, ask if they extend their courtesy to tend to matters such as actually helping you file the claim.

Check for Online Presence. Established businesses in the present times generally have at least some form of online presence. Visit their website, check out their Facebook page and see if they are on Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn.

Check the Better Business Bureau. It’s imperative to see what the company’s standing is on the BBB.

Credentials. Always ask to see the contractor’s credentials and don’t be afraid to thoroughly double check them.

  1. You’ve got some great tips for choosing the right roofer. I like how you said that they should have skilled professionals who have good work ethics. We’re hoping to get new tiles on our roof, so I’ll make sure to check for that.

  2. Thanks for your comment about how you should hire a roofing contractor that is that is located near you. I also like how you said that they should be professionally skilled. My husband and I are looking for a roofing contractor to repair our house.

  3. Thank you for taking the time to write this article. We advise every client of the same. Don’t try to cut corners when deciding on a roofing company because least expensive rarely ever means best. When it comes to something as important as a roof, all details need to be considered.

  4. Thanks for pointing out that it is important that the roofing team you hire has insurance to protect against any damage to your property or third party injury. I think that it would also be smart to make sure that the roofing service you hire has experience in what kind of roof you needed like residential or commercial. I think that checking that they were insured and that they had relevant experience would help make sure that your roof was going to be the best it could be and would look good too.

  5. I’ve been meaning to have my roof replaced into asphalt shingles. I’ll keep in mind to check if the roofing team is covered with insurance for the protection of my property in case of any damages. I hope I’ll be able to find roofing contractors that will provide me an excellent result.

  6. You make a good point when you mention how you should hire a roofer that has insurance that can cover any property damages. My uncle just purchased a warehouse and would like to install a metal roof that will protect the interior during harsh weather conditions. It may be best for him to find a roofing company that can ensure that he will not have to pay for any accidental damages.
