At Reformed Exteriors, we respect the do-it-yourself ethos. However, we also know that there are some jobs that are better left to the professionals. Roofing is one such job, as DIYers are likely to underestimate the amount of work involved and lack the proper safety training to be working up on the roof without undue risk of accident or injury.
If you need roof repairs or a new roof altogether, we highly recommend that you get professional roofers on the case. Finding the best roofers in your area can be tricky, so there are some things to look for in your search:
- Insurance- As mentioned above, roofing is a line of work that carries a certain level of risk. Not even the most diligent roofers can entirely eliminate the possibility of damage or injury, so a legitimate roofing contractor will carry insurance to cover that eventuality. When interviewing potential roofers for your home, ask to see their insurance certificates–if they can’t produce proof of both liability and workers’ compensation insurance, keep searching.
- Location- If possible, always try to stick to roofers in your area. Particularly, look for a roofing company that has an established history and reputation in your location, as this shows that they are invested in the community. Roofers with a connection to and stake in your local community will provide better service than those whose main business is elsewhere.
- Communication- Another important thing to look for in a roofer is how well they communicate. You want a team that is open with information and who will reliably return your calls. These people will be working on your home, so if they show they can’t be counted on for simple things like sending documentation, move on to the next candidate.
If you are having problems with your roof, you can always call our roofers at Reformed Exteriors for quality service. We’ll take care of all your roofing needs!
