Ways to find a great local roofing company

Sometimes, people come across roofing companies that may claim to be local, but are actually moving from place to place, following storms and bad weather. We call those kinds of roofers “storm-chasers,” and they are not worthy of your hard earned money. Check out some of these tips to help you make sure the company that you’re working with is local!

CHECK OUT SOME ONLINE REVIEWS

After gathering some recommendations from your close-contacts, go online to see what other customer’s opinions are.

reviews

Online reviews can do a great job of raising any potential red flags on a business, such as how they dealt with a complaint. It’s a good idea to look at reviews from the last 3-4 months, so you can get an idea of how customers have been treated in recent memory.

Pro tip: Check to see if the business responds to the reviews, and how they do it. A company that thanks its customers for good ratings, and addresses negative reviews with a positive attitude, is likely one you’ll want to work with.

You should, however, take online reviews with a grain of salt – as with anything on the internet, they can sometimes be over-exaggerated or slightly untrue.

MAKE SURE THE COMPANY HAS A LOCAL PHONE NUMBER AND ADDRESS

One important, but surprisingly overlooked step of hiring a local roofer is making sure they are actually local.

Larger, regional companies can have massive service areas, and a huge number of jobs going at any given moment. Though they might have the infrastructure in place to dedicate the proper time and resources to your project, they likely won’t be as easy to get in touch with after the job is done.

In order to thwart these bad actors, or ensure that you’re working with someone within reach: check the company’s phone number for the right area code, and verify that they have a physical office location in your area.

LOOK FOR EXAMPLES OF THEIR WORK IN THE COMMMUNITY

You can use this tip in two separate, but equally helpful ways.on tops-2_WebP

Look for a company’s yard signs to see how a home looks after they’ve completed the job. Or find some houses you recognize on their website, and drive by to see how their work has held up over the years.

Browse the business’ social media channels, and look for how involved they are in your community. If a company is truly local, and are just as invested in your area as you are, they will show their support for local causes and show up at community events.

Viewing a contractor’s work in person will give you a much better idea of how it would translate to your home, and a company’s social work will demonstrate how dedicated they are to benefitting your shared community, and not just making a profit.
