Your roofing system is among the most important parts of your home. In addition to protecting you from the elements, your roof protects everything that’s inside of your home. Suffice to say, when it comes time to hire a company to help with roof repair (or roof replacement)—you’ll want to make sure you’re working with a pro.

So how can you sort the good and the bad from the downright ugly? That’s easy. For this blog post, we wanted to talk about the steps you can take to ensure you’re working with reputable roofing contractors.

Ask if they’re licensed and insured

When a roofing company is licensed, this means they’ve proven to the state that their company has met certain industry standards. To become licensed, a company must hold workers compensation and liability insurance, and they need to show they have the background, training, and know-how to get a job done right.

Check out their website and read their online reviews

Online reviews are a great way to gauge the level of customer care (and customer service) that a roofing company provides to its clients. If their Yelp, Google+, Home Advisor and/or Angie’s List (among others) are all favorable, you’ll likely be in good hands.

Check to see if complaints have been filed against them with the BBB

If the BBB website shows that multiple people have filed complaints against the roofing contractors you’re considering working with—this is a big red flag. It’s always best to work with a company that has a long list of 4.5 or 5-star reviews, as opposed to a company that has multiple 1 or 2-star reviews.

Ask if they’ll provide you with a written quote

A reputable contractor will always provide you with a written quote. The quote should be on the company letterhead (as opposed to being a number that’s scribbled on the back of a business card), and it should include a breakdown of costs (including labor and materials). It should be as detailed and thorough as possible, and the quote should also include information on how long it will take them to complete the task they were hired to perform
