Customer Testimonials and BBB Rating

Two of the most trustworthy ways to determine if a company or product is trustworthy are customer reviews and the Better Business Bureau (BBB). Unfortunately, some companies think it’s okay to post fake or only the best reviews, so you’ll need to go beyond the company’s website. Additionally, you can look the company up on the BBB to determine if they have a rating or if the company has any formal complaints.

Ask About Their Insurance

Insurance is crucial when it comes to hiring a roofer. If a roofing “company” (quotes intended) doesn’t have insurance, they’re probably not a real company after all. Without insurance, you are at a liability. If the contractor damages your home and doesn’t have insurance, they can’t cover their mistake and will only cause you a bigger headache.

When considering a roofing contractor, you have to look at several factors: their integrity, track record, and experience are the most important. All things considered, if you need a roof replacement, it’s still better to hire a professional than trying to save some money and do it yourself.
