If you need to repair or replace the roof on your SWFL home, you’ll want to hire the best company for the job. Regardless as to whether you’re a new homeowner (who has never needed to hire contractors before) or you’ve owned your home for a while, it’s imperative that you research, review and evaluate Naples Fl roofing companies before you hire them.

Yes, a Google search will populate dozens, if not hundreds of listings for roofers, but that’s not to say the companies that show up on page 1 are the best ones for the job. For this post we wanted to provide several tips you can use to choose the right one.

Make sure they’re licensed and insured

The #1 most important thing you’ll want to ask about when you’re evaluating potential roofers is whether their company is licensed and insured. Will an unlicensed contractor undercut the competition on price? Yes. But will you have any guarantees that the work will be done right, on time, or if the contractor will complete it? No. Not only does this mean you may need to hire a second company to finish (or fix) work that wasn’t done correctly, if an unlicensed roofer gets hurt while working on your property, you could be liable for their medical expenses. Never, ever hire unlicensed roofers.

Check their online presence

Does the company have a website? Do they have one or more social media pages? Have they been reviewed on websites such as Home Advisor, Angie’s List or Yelp? If so (and if their reviews are positive), this is a good sign. On the other hand, if you can’t find a trace of them online, consider that to be a big red flag.

Get everything in writing

Reputable roofers in Naples, FL will provide you with a detailed estimate for any work they feel is needed, and the estimate should include a full breakdown of the costs for both labor and materials. Additionally, make sure the company you choose provides you written information about their materials and workmanship warranties. If they’re hesitant to give you anything in writing or they try to use high-pressure sales tactics to get you to commit to having the work done, before you get a written estimate, this is also a big red flag.
