Do you know the signs of a good roofer?
Your roof is one of the most important elements of your home. As a barrier against rain, snow, hail, and debris, it has to stand up against the elements. Whether you need a new roofing system or just a minor repair, you want to choose a company you can trust. Determine your project goals and do your research to find the best Dayton roofing contractors for the job.
So, how do you find the right contractors for your project? Our team at JW Roofing has listed five signs of a trusted roofing company to guide you in the right direction. If your contractors check off all of these boxes, you’ve selected the right Dayton roofing contractors.
They bring years of experience
A roofing company being around for many years is a good indicator that they are doing things right. Experienced roofers are more likely to have dealt with situations that are similar to yours, especially if they are local to the area. Trusted companies that have been around for a long time will almost always deliver better results. When it comes to something as important as your roofing system, you want a company who provides the best service, products and workmanship in the industry.
Their online reviews speak for themselves
Another way to evaluate a roofing contractor is by doing online research. With such easy access to technology, customers online are not afraid to be honest and share their experiences with others. If there is a roofing company you’re considering, give it a quick Google search to see what you find. You might read through customer reviews and testimonials, or check out their website. A company’s reputation online can be very telling. Trusted roofing contractors should have high rankings and solid reviews.
They are quick and responsive
Customer service can make or break a business. It is important for businesses—roofing or otherwise—to understand their clients, anticipate problems and offer ways to help solve them. If you’re planning a roofing project in the Dayton area, it’s best to find a contractor in the area for a few reasons:
- They’re very familiar with Ohio weather conditions
- They’re extremely knowledgeable of local rules and regulations
- They’re just a phone call away if any issues arise
Quality roofing contractors will be quick and responsive to their customers. Poor, unorganized communication efforts with clients may reflect their work ethic. We recommend giving a roofing company a call to speak with customer service. A customer service representative will be informative, pleasant and guide you in the right direction!
They have a high BBB ranking
The Better Business Bureau® (BBB) estimates how likely businesses are to interact with their customers by assigning ratings from A+ (highest) to F (lowest). Think of a BBB ranking as an official, unbiased evaluation of a business. Look for roofing contractors with higher rankings. The higher their ranking, the better their performance.
They are licensed and insured
Don’t be fooled by fly-by-night roofing companies that offer outrageous deals on roof repair or replacement. Oftentimes, these types of companies are not licensed or insured. Most times, companies need to pass a roofing exam or have been in business for a certain number of years to obtain a roofing license. We recommend asking anyone working on your roofing system for proof of insurance.
