Have a leaky roof? Maybe your existing roof has outlived its typical lifespan, or you’re considering a new roof to significantly improve your home’s curb appeal. Whatever the reason you may be in search of a quality roofing contractor, it’s imperative that you find someone you can be sure will get the job done quickly, cleanly and to your satisfaction.
You deserve to have all your expectations fully met or even exceeded. From start to finish, your level of satisfaction will be based on how well or poorly a roofing contractor — or any business — fulfills these expectations.
Are They Responsive, On Time, Honest and Transparent?
A non-responsive contractor or one that shows up late or not at all with no valid explanation are serious causes for concern. Everyone’s time is valuable, so contractors who don’t recognize that or who don’t seem completely open and honest may not deserve to get your business.
Do They Listen and Empathize with Your Concerns?
Do they really listen to what you want, your concerns and goals for your upcoming roofing project? Are you given adequate time to ask all your questions, and are you satisfied with the answers? Is the conversation a two-way street or does it seem you’re being treated simply as another possible sale?
Can They Identify and Justify All Recommended Solutions?
As a homeowner, you need to be well informed in order to make a wise decision about which roofing contractor or roofing solution to select. You need details about the proposed products and clear justifications about their efficiency and cost. If several price options are offered, you deserve to know the pros and cons of each option so you can make an informed decision.If the contractor isn’t completely comfortable with you asking all your questions, they probably aren’t the right roofer for you.
Hopefully They Under-Promise and Over-Deliver
Before you make any decisions, you should receive in writing a detailed description that includes how they will manage the project and what its timeline will be. This way, your expectations can be met or even exceeded if all factors involved (weather, product availability, staffing) perfectly align. If you receive no detailed project description, there’s no promise made and no possibility that they’ll over-deliver.
Will They Make the Project as Painless as Possible?
Unfortunately, roofing projects are usually messy, noisy and often inconvenient. Add that to the expense of the project, and it’s no surprise that your roof is arguably the most important part of your home’s exterior. High-quality and truly professional roofing contractors make sure to make it as painless a project as possible. The ideal roofing contractor will give you great reasons during and after the project to be proud and glad you selected them.
