How to Choose a Roofing Company

My Florida Roofing Contractor Blog Header

Roofing is not something you can do part-time or on your own. An owner can do many home projects to spruce up their house. Roofing is not one of them. Instead of tackling the risky project yourself, call a professional roofing company. How do you know who will be the right choice for you?

You will want to get a few quotes from different roofing companies in your area. You can get one quote and hope it is the lowest price and good service. But, you won't know if you don't do a little research. The first company you find may not be the best choice for you.

Why Do You Need 3 Quotes?

No rule says you have to get three quotes. However, it is in your best interest to get more than one quote. It is best practice to get 2 to 3 quotes because it will give you a range of options before deciding. The sky's the limit, though. If you aren't happy with your first options, don't worry about getting more than three quotes. Also, always get a quote in writing. That way, whoever you choose, you'll have the exact cost you talked about initially.

So, if you can take the time to get as many quotes as you need and as much information as possible beforehand, you'll be setting yourself up for success. A low cost does not always mean the best choice. Consider other factors that will result in a long-lasting roof and quality service. You will want to know how long the company has been in business because that will tell you if they do a thorough job. A roofing company with glowing reviews on their website and on google will be a good sign.

How Do You Pick the Best Deal?

If you are regularly checking your roof, you'll know right away when you need to have a professional inspect the structure. You may know it is time to be prepared and have a new roof installed because it has been long enough for the roof's life span. You wouldn't want to wait until a leak or moisture comes in to get a new roof!

Most homeowners choose shingle roofs because they are the most affordable option. A shingle roof can last up to 30 years, a pretty long life span. A tile roof's life span is even longer and can last up to 50 years. Tile is a popular choice in wet, tropical climates like Florida because it is good in the heat. Where shingle roofs may melt and warp during the summer, clay tile will withstand high temperatures.

A good roofing company will be happy to give you a bid in writing, show you references from their last few jobs, and prove they are insured and prepared to deal with any unplanned delays or damages. According to Angie's List, the average cost to reroof a house is $9,160 in Florida. All it takes is a quick google search to find out if your bids are fair and if the company comes recommended by reviewers online. Then, when you plan and know the lifespan of your roof, you can take the time you need to take advantage of the situation and get the bids you want.
