If you are a homeowner who has ever been faced with the realization that your roof has some serious problems and needs to be repaired or -worst case scenario- replaced, you know how frustrating and scary this can be. First of all, once your past the stage of denial, well into the stage of acceptance that something must be done, you worry. How much is this going to cost? How long will it take? How do I know which company to call to help me with this problem? All of these worries are valid. Any type of roof work is an investment and you should do some adequate research to find the right company to handle the job! To help you with your search in finding the highest quality roofing company in Phoenix, Arizona, here is some homework for you to do.
Finding an Expert Roofing Company
Make sure to do your research before finding the right company to hire for your roof repair or replacement. This is your investment and you have a choice of who you want to hire. So before you just hire the random company that your sister’s friend’s aunt used, do some research on your own and use this quick guide to help you find the roofing company that is going to take the best care of you!
Look Around Online
This is usually the easiest source of information you can gather. Check to see if the company has a website, and take a look at their social media profiles. Look for signs of professionalism, consistency in address and phone numbers, images or before/after photos of recent work. You should also be able to find current associations, licenses, certifications, etc. There is a TON of information your can discover just by searching around online! Take your time, and get a feel for the company.
Check Reviews & Get Referrals
While your looking around online, check out the most popular review sites and see what past customers have had to say about their experience with the company. Of course, some reviews are completely phony so while searching through reviews look for any patterns of consistent problems that customers mention on different dates.
Also, if you find a company that you think you like, go ahead and ask around. Talk to your friends, family, neighbors, etc. Put it out their on Facebook and ask if anyone has a recommendation for you. People love to share their good experiences, so this could be a great way to find a quality company.
Free Inspections/ Evaluations
Even though you are in that “acceptance” stage and you know that you need a professional to repair or replace your roof, it’s impossible to be able to tell the true extent of the damage. It’s nice to have a company to provide Free inspections or evaluations of the condition of your roof. This way, they will give you a detailed assessment and a expert opinion on the service that you need, without the bill!
Many roofing companies will provide warranties for your repair or replacement, but see if you can take a look at their warranty before hand. This is important because often, companies will include “terms” in their warranty that will void it out. Inspecting the warranty beforehand, will give you a chance to look at it closely and understand all of the “terms” that are included.
Years of Service
How many years has a company been in service? This is an important question because the more years of service that a company has, the more likely it is that they are a more professional and experienced company that knows how to take care of their customers in comparison to a company with little to few years of service.
Insurance & Workman’s Comp
It’s not against the rules to ask to see proof of the company’s insurance and workman’s compensation certificates. This is often a step that most homeowners either forget or don’t think to ask about. This is an important factor in choosing the right roofing company because you want to make sure that the company has it’s own coverage and that you will not be held legally responsible should anything happen while working on your home.
Variety of Services
Make sure that the roofing company that you choose can offer a variety of roofing material and options for you to choose from. They should be able to show you specific roofs that they have done that demonstrates their knowledge for each type. For example, you don’t want to find a company who does 90% shingle roofs and a few of the rest here and there. Your roofing experts should be just that- experts! In all types of roofing!
Certifications and Associations
Is the company you are looking into belong to any associations such as the Arizona Roofing Contractor’s Association? Or maybe you see that they have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. These affiliations tell you that this is a company that you can trust and is willing to go the extra mile to ensure they are doing right by their customers.
