5 Tips to Help You Engage the Best Roofing Services

Whether you need roof repair, roof maintenance, roof installation, or a roof replacement, you need to hire excellent contractors in the field. Here are some tips to help you engage the best roofing services in your area.

Find a Specialized Service

If your home has asphalt shingle roofing, your best bet is hiring a roofing company that specialized in that particular roofing style. This also applies to the particular service you need. If you need a shingle replacement or repairs for your roof following storm damage, you should find a service that has the expertise to fix, install, or replace your roof with ease.

Obtain Multiple Estimates

Excellent roofing services will offer free estimates for their work prior to signing any agreement. Because of this, you should obtain a few estimates from roofing companies in your area. This way, you can compare the estimates and determine which company best fits your budget and timeline.

One tidbit to keep in mind is that professionals will charge more than what you’d spend on a DIY roofing project. A standard 2200-to-2600 square foot roof will cost DIY homeowners between $1000 and $4000 to fully replace, while professionals will charge between $2000 to $8500. This is because roofers charge using “squares.” One 10×10 foot patch of roof makes a square. This means that the average roof has between 22 and 26 squares. This is important to understand because, while a DIY project may be cheaper, professionals will get the job done faster, more efficiently, and with much more expertise. Your DIY project could prove to be disastrous and unsafe.

Contact Their References

The next step is contacting references. While a company may look good online, their relationships with their customers say a lot more. Read through each roofing service’s reviews, and ask for a few references. Contact these references and ask a few questions about their experience with the company. Were they communicative, efficient, and cost-effective? Were their services satisfactory overall? Asking these questions and getting real-life advice from past customers will give you a better idea of whether a company is worth hiring.

Consider Warranties

All roofing services offer different types of warranties for labor and roofing materials. It’s a good idea to ask about these warranties before signing a contract. You want to ensure your roof repairs, replacement, or installation is guaranteed a long lifespan.

Hire Locally

One last tip to keep in mind is to hire locally. When you engage roofing services in your area, you’re supporting a small and likely family-owned business. These types of businesses are great to work with because they are personable, care about their customers, and pay attention to the small details that matter to you.

Engaging the right roofing services will matter in the long run. You need your roof in excellent shape so that it can do its job of keeping you, your family, and your home safe at all times.
