The roof is perhaps the most important part of your home. Yes, occasionally, you may need some storm damage repair or maybe patch up a few damaged shingles here and there, but as long as your roofing system is in good shape overall, the rest of your home will be protected from the elements. You can further enhance the performance of your roof by hiring the right roofing contractor to do timely repairs and regular maintenance.
Finding a contractor for your roofing needs is easy. A quick search on the internet can return hundreds of results. Finding a good one among this massive list, however, can be daunting. Here are a few tips from our experts at Atrium Roofing on what to look out for when choosing a roofer.
Always Look for Proof of Insurance
All reputable residential roofers are bonded and insured. This not only protects you from any potential liabilities should there be any accidents on the job, but it also speaks volumes about your potential candidate. It’s not enough to ask your roofer about their insurance and then hear them say that they are covered. Make it a point to ask for proof of insurance, a certifiable document that proves that they are, in fact, protected.
Well-Rounded Skill Sets
There are roofers who will specialize in certain types of roofs. It’s always a good idea to go with a roofer who knows your roof and the components that make it up. Don’t be too alarmed when a contractor says they are not familiar with a certain type of roof but be aware that they might not give you the best value for your money.
Replacements as a Last Resort
If your roofer is too quick to push for a roof replacement even though you’re well away from the end of your roof’s life span, you should start reconsidering other candidates. You’re likely dealing with an unscrupulous company that will upsell products at every opportunity regardless of whether your roof needs them or not.
