Get Recommendations

Start by asking people you trust for recommendations. Check with family, friends, or neighbors who had to replace a shingle roof. If they’ve had a good experience with a roofer, they’ll be more than happy to pass on the name. If you can’t get any recommendations, look for roofers online.

Ask for Quotes

A list of quotes will give you a good idea of how much the job will cost and what kind of services you can expect. Make sure to get quotes from at least three different roofers so you can compare and contrast. Keep in mind that the lowest quote is not always the best option.

Check Their References

After you’ve received your quotes, it’s time to start narrowing down your options. A good way to do this is by checking their references. A reference check will give you a better idea of the quality of their work and whether or not they’re reliable. You can also check online reviews to see what other people say about them.

Check With the Better Business Bureau

The Better Business Bureau will let you know if there have been any complaints against the roofing company. Check to see if the company has BBB accreditation, which indicates that they’re a reputable business.

Check for License and Insurance

Before hiring a roofer, ensure they’re licensed and insured. Insurance protects you if something goes wrong, and licensing shows they’re properly trained for the job. You can usually find this information on their website, or you can ask them for proof. Any reputable company will be happy to provide you with proof of their licensing and insurance.

Get Everything in Writing

Get everything in writing. This includes the job price, the timeline, and the scope of work. Keep all the paperwork in one place so you can easily find it. With organization, you can easily find documents when you need them.
