We are here to help our homeowners choose the best roofing contractor for their home. It’s a big decision and one of the hardest ones for the homeowner to make with all of the different companies out there. Multiple factors need to come into play as you make this decision. Not only do you need to find a contractor that is honest and trustworthy, but you need to find one that does an outstanding job as well. Below we have listed our top 5 tips to help you hire the right roofing contractor.
Look Into The Company You Hire BY CHECKing THEIR CUSTOMER REFERRALS
Referrals are a homeowner’s best friend these days. With so many different companies out there it’s sometimes hard to know who to choose. Granted some people have different experiences than others, however, the majority of the referrals/reviews should be positive. Go check out some of our 5 Star Reviews and see what our customers have to say about us!
MAKE SURE Your Contractor OFFERs A MANUFACTURER’S WARRANTY
You definitely want the roofing contractor your hire to offer a manufacturer’s warranty. We are hoping that things don’t go wrong, but realistically we know they sometimes do. Wear and tear can happen to your roof and if your contractor doesn’t cover workmanship then you could come out of pocket to repair your roof. With Southern Pro Restoration, we offer our Golden Pledge Warranty through our manufacturer, GAF. So you are covered for up to 25 years (restrictions may apply).
Check for proper licensing and insurance
Here at Southern Pro Restoration, we are an open book. We are fully licensed and insured, and have yours and our best interest in mind. We have seen plenty of “roofing companies” in our area that are not insured and are still putting on roofs because they are “cheaper” than the average roofing company. So, beware of who you hire and do your research.
Pay Your own deductible and file your own claim
We, as a company, are not allowed to cover your deductible as part of our overhead. That has to be paid by you, the insured. Therefore, when searching for a roofing contractor, do not go with the company that says they will cover your deductible with their own costs. They are not running their business correctly and are actually breaking the law.
In addition, all homeowners are required to file their own claim. We do not do that for you as it is also against the law. Homeowners have to file that initial claim. Now, that does not mean we cannot talk to your insurance company once the claim has been filed in order to get updates from them, we just cannot initiate any claim that is not personally ours.
find a Roofig contractor that offers a Variety of materials
There are some contractors that only offer a limited amount of materials, but that is just not how we do it here at Southern Pro Restoration. Your home is typically your biggest investment and we want to make sure that every part of it is taken care of. Therefore, we offer a variety of shingles types and colors so your home looks its best when we are finished.
