It’s always stressful to realize that you’ve got a major home repair and purchase ahead of you. Roofs don’t come cheap, often because it is a laborious job. And you certainly don’t want to have to replace anything after it’s finished due to sloppy work. Picking your contractor is an important process to understand and to get right. Here are some tips to get you started in the right direction so you can have a great experience with a trustworthy contractor (contact us for more information).
By working with a local company, you guarantee that they are invested in your community and their reputation in that community. Ask around to find out if people you know have used their services and what they thought. Find reviews from community members. Check their Better Business Bureau rating and reviews.
Of course, every company has to start somewhere, but you’re taking far less of a risk by choosing a company that has been around for an impressive number of years. It means they’re committed to their trade, the community, and their business reputation. It also means that they are less likely to go out of business, ruining your chances of using a warranty when needed.
Make sure they always carry insurance and for all of their employees. Also look to see if they follow safety protocols and show an obvious commitment to safety with their employees.
More Than Price
It might be tempting to go with the person who offers the lowest bid, but you should resist letting that be your sole reason to pick a company. Sometimes the ones who offer the cheapest work also won’t do a good job, meaning you’ll have repairs for years to come (which adds up in stress and cost).
Does the company exhibit good customer service skills? The company you choose should be prompt in their response times, always willing to explain things, and crystal clear about their process. Anyone who acts shady, doesn’t respond to your calls, or simply avoids you altogether – run!
Get it all written down and finalize agreements. Know how long it will take them to complete the job and stay in contact during the entire process.
