How To Hire a Roofer Who’s a Good Match for Your Needs

Don’t forget that a roofing project is essentially a collaboration between you and your roofing contractor. That’s why constant communication is vital to your project’s success. 

It’s also important to hire a roofing contractor that’s qualified for the job. How do you hire a roofer who’s a good match for your needs? 

Check Their Qualifications

In addition to a license (most states require one) and workers’ insurance (this will help protect you from legal liabilities stemming from injuries on your property), a contractor should also have certifications that prove they underwent professional training. One advantage of hiring contractors with certifications is that they’ve already been vetted by the manufacturers and independent non-profits that issued the certification. As such, in a sense, they’ve already done all the vetting work for you. 

Why Hire a GAF® Master Elite™ Contractor?   

The requirements for a Master Elite™ Certification are so stringent that only 2% of all roofing contractors qualify. To receive the certification, a contractor should be properly licensed, adequately insured, committed to ongoing professional training, and have a solid business reputation in their respective communities. As such, you can rest easy knowing that your new roof will be correctly installed and your damaged roof will be completely repaired. 

Ask How Long They’ve Been in Business 

The number of years they’ve been working in the industry can give you an idea of their level of expertise.

Hiring local contractors has several advantages. For starters, it’s more practical to hire a roofer with an office that’s based near your home. (The closer they are to your home, the faster they can fix a leaking roof). And since local roofers are familiar with the local climate and building codes, they can make better recommendations. Not to mention you’ll be able to quickly narrow down your options by focusing your search on contractors near your area.
