Homeowner’s Guide to Choosing a Roof Contractor

homeowner's guide to choosing a roof contractor

When it comes to your roof, you should always want the best. Whether it be for a minor repair, or for a full roof replacement, choosing your roofing contractor is not something you should do on a whim. Here at Janney Roofing, we want to help ease your decision. We have compiled some of the most important components to look for when selecting your Orlando roofing contractor.

Review Insurance and Business Licenses

Hopefully this goes without saying, but making sure your roofing contractor is insured and licensed is essential. Not only will this help verify their legitimacy, but it will reassure you that you are hiring professionals to work on your roof. Making sure your contractor has insurance will protect you from a potential lawsuit if one of their employees is injured while working on your property. It’s important to make sure the insurance period will cover the full amount of time the company will be working on your roof. Making sure your contractor has the appropriate business license should mean that the work they complete on your work will be up to state standards and that they are knowledgeable in their field. Selecting a roofing company without these credentials could mean disaster for your roof.

View Their Portfolio

Like with any other service, you want to make sure you like the company’s style before you commit to a contract. Ask to view pictures of their previous work. Look on their Facebook page to read any reviews their past clients have left for them. Before you sign the dotted line of your contract, make sure the company you are selecting provides excellent service and that they have a reputable reputation. It’s important that the customer service they provide matches the professionalism of the work they perform. In the long run, you just want to make sure you hire the company that is going to best suit your needs.

Shop Locally

Shopping locally for your roofing contractor is not vital, but it is definitely recommended. We recommend shopping for local, Orlando based roofing companies to ensure that your roof gets the best possible treatment. One of the biggest advantages of a local contractor is that you won’t have to pay large amounts of money just to cover their travel expenses. With a local company, it would be easy to contact them again if your roof needed any follow up attention or care. Also, your local Orlando roofing company will know what kind of roof an Orlando house should need. An experienced roofer will know the weather demands of Orlando, as well as other contributing factors that affect your roof, and will be able to provide you with the best possible final product.

Request An Estimate

When shopping for your local Orlando roofing company, it is recommend to research at least three different companies before making your final decision. By doing this, you can know without a doubt that you are choosing the best roofing contractor for your roof. Something that we know is extremely important in your decision-making process is the overall cost of the project. When you’re doing your research, request estimates from the different companies. Keep in mind that you don’t always want to go with the lowest price. Make sure that the service that will be provided is going to be up to your standards all while paying within your budget.
