The Ultimate Guide to Choosing a Roof Replacement Contractor

Replacing your roof is a major investment in your home. It’s a big decision that requires careful consideration and research. With so many contractors out there, it can be overwhelming to choose the right one. That’s why we’ve created the ultimate guide to help you choose the best roof replacement contractor for your needs.

  1. Look for a Contractor with a Long History and Strong Warranty

Choosing a contractor who has been in business for a long time is important. They’ve had time to establish themselves in the community and build a reputation for quality work. Look for a contractor who offers a 25-year workmanship warranty. This shows that they stand behind their work and have confidence in their ability to deliver a quality product.

  1. Choose a Contractor with a Brick and Mortar Location

A contractor with a physical location is important. If something goes wrong, you want to know that you can find them and get a resolution. Be wary of contractors who only have a P.O. box or who are hard to get a hold of. A brick and mortar location shows that they are invested in the community and committed to providing quality service.

  1. Look for a Contractor Who Specializes in One Roofing System

A contractor who specializes in one type of roofing system is essential. They should be an expert in their field and master at installing a particular system. Look for a contractor who uses high-quality roofing systems, such as Owens Corning, Certainteed, and Atlas. These brands are known for their durability and longevity.

  1. Avoid Budget Shingle Brands

Be cautious of contractors who use budget shingle brands like Tamko, IKO, and GAF. These shingles may be cheaper, but they don’t provide the same level of quality as higher-end brands. Investing in a high-quality roofing system will save you money in the long run, as they last longer and require fewer repairs.

  1. Ask for Photos of Completed Roofs

Ask for photos of completed roofs that the contractor has worked on. Make sure these photos are not just stock photos from the manufacturer. A reputable contractor should be proud to show off their work and have a portfolio of completed projects.

  1. Verify Licensing and Insurance

Always verify that the contractor is licensed and insured. A licensed contractor has met the requirements set by the state and has demonstrated their competence in the field. Insurance protects you from liability if there is an accident or damage to your property during the project.

  1. Ask About Project Management

Who will be project managing the job? Make sure you know who will be overseeing the work and communicating with you throughout the project. A good project manager should be accessible and responsive to your needs and concerns.

  1. Get a Timeline for Completion

Ask for a timeline for completion of the project. While unforeseen circumstances can arise, a reputable contractor should be able to give you a general idea of when the work will be completed.

  1. Don’t Choose Based on Price Alone

Never choose a contractor based on the lowest bid. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. A low bid could indicate that the contractor is cutting corners or using inferior materials. Remember, you get what you pay for.

  1. Choose a Contractor You Trust

Choose a contractor you feel comfortable with and trust. You’ll be working with them for several weeks, and you want to feel confident that they have your best interests in mind. Look for a contractor who is professional, honest, and transparent throughout the process.

In conclusion, choosing a roof replacement contractor is a significant decision. By following these tips, you can ensure that you choose a contractor who is qualified, reliable, and trustworthy. At S&S Remodeling Contractors, we have been providing high-quality roofing services for over 70 years.
