How Can You Tell a Good Roofing Contractor?

You know you’ve chosen a good roofing contractor and invested your money well on a new roof when the roof is installed by qualified contractors.

Here’s how you know you have a qualified roofing contractor:

  • Your contractor should be licensed and insured. Training related to roofing systems and carry liability and worker’s compensation insurance.
  • They should be local to the Kansas City area. Hiring a local roofing contractor insures they know what your roof will be up against and know the best materials to use.
  • Have good reviews and references. You should be able to see the reviews online and they should be able to provide references for you to call.
  • Provide a thorough inspection. Besides looking at the roof and all it’s connecting points for leaks, damage or mold; they should also look in the attic. At the end they should be able to provide a thorough report. Often times they will provide pictures of any damage.
  • Detailed estimate. After they’ve reviewed the roof, they should be able to provide you with details estimate of labor, materials, applicable tax and time frame; along with payment options. They should not ask you for payment upfront.

When talking to a potential roofing contractor, listen to the way they communicate with you and you’ll be working with this company throughout the entire process. You want to be able to trust what they say and believe that they do what they will say.
