How to Choose a Professional Roof Contractor

Getting high quality roofing services can be a daunting thought when you find a leak in your roof and don’t have a lot of time to do in depth research. If you’re in a hurry and need to find a contractor, follow these tips and you’ll find a professional, proficient roofing expert.

Because Texas does not have state licensing, anyone could decide to be a roofer. That’s why doing research, asking for references, and making sure you feel comfortable and safe with the contractor you’ve chosen is extremely important. The first thing you should do when considering a contractor is researching them as a member of the Better Business Bureau.

Once you’ve crossed this off the list, make sure the contractor you’re considering provides you with a “hold harmless” affidavit. This form provides protection for both parties and clearly sets guidelines so no information is withheld.

Checking social media for references is another step to ensuring you have the best contractor available. Look for reviews on Yelp and Google, check out the companies Facebook and other social media accounts, and even ask the company for several references.

Finally, look at their address. This can be telling on their validity as a grounded company. If you see a P.O. Box address, the company could be an individual working out of their garage or pick up truck. Just because someone claims to be a roofer and can get a job totaled with your insurance company does not mean they are qualified to install a roof system.
