If your roof has sprung a leak, it’s best to contact an experienced roofer right away. Your roofing system is among the most important (if not the most important) components of your home, which means you’ll have to repair it ASAP.

Below are several tips you can use to hire the best company for the job.

Ask about the types of materials they’ve worked with in the past

If you need help with flat roof repair, you’ll want to hire a company that’s experienced with flat roofing. Similarly, if your roof is topped with galvanized metal roofing, you have corrugated roofing, or you have Spanish tile roofing, you’ll want to make sure you hire the right vendor. If the company you’re calling specializes in asphalt shingles, but you need help with metal roofing sheets, it’s OK to hang up and call someone else.

Ask for references

One of the best ways to gage the level of customer care and customer service a company provides to its clients, is to ask them for references. When you ask for references, it’s best to make sure you get a true random sampling (as opposed to giving you the numbers of three clients who are guaranteed to sing their praises.) Getting a random sampling is easier than you think. For example, ask them to provide you with the names and numbers of three prior clients who have a last name that starts with a specific letter.  

Ask about their licensing (and research it online)

A reputable roofing company will be licensed and insured. If you ask for their licensing number, not only should they give it to you, you should be able to look them up online.  If the company you’re speaking with tries to change the subject, delays getting you their info, and/or you can’t find them online, this is a huge red flag. This is a company you definitely don’t want to work with.)
