Hiring The Right Roofing Contractor

Investing in a new roof can be a great home improvement. Finding the right guy for the job can be harder than one may think. How can you pick the right roofing contractor for the job? We’ll show you a few signs to look out for before making a decision. A new roof can add value to your home, cut your energy bill, and keep your family safe. If done wrong, your new roof wont last, and will leave you with a huge bill and a massive headache.

1: Credibility
Credibility and accountability goes a long way in being a reputable roofing contractor. Here are some red flags to look out for.

Poorly developed, or no working website
Phone number is a cell phone
No logos on trucks
Barely any, or poor reviews online
Haven’t been in business for a long time.
It shouldn’t be a guessing game when it comes to your roofing contractor. They should be easy to get a hold of, and you shouldn’t worry about calling a dead phone number years down the line. With reviews, the proof is in the pudding. If other people have had good experiences with this company, chances are so will you. If there’s hardly any reviews about this roofing contractor, why should you be the guinea pig? Not having logos on their trucks, or a well developed website shows a lack of professionalism. If they haven’t been in business for 10 years, how do you know they’ll be in business 10 years from now when you may need a repair?

2: Quality of Product

Roofs aren’t cheap, your roofing contractor shouldn’t be cutting corners on quality. This only helps him keep his costs down, and in turn it hurts your roof. The product should be of the highest quality.

Sold as a total roof system
Reputable brands pointed out
Sold with 25+ year warranty
Benefits explained in detail
The saying “you get what you pay for” really does exist. With that being said, you should always know what you’re really getting when buying a new roof. A reputable roofing contractor sells the product, not the price. Which leads us directly into our next point.

3: Price

Chances are that you’ve contacted more than one roofing contractor to come look at your home. While you want to make the best investment, that’s not always the cheapest. Be wary if

One estimate is much lower or higher than the others
Sales representative is using a high pressure approach
Price is given, then magically thousands of dollars are taken off
It’s not as easy to sniff out the snake as one might think. Often a sales representative will act like your best friend. Then they give you a price and a dotted line to sign. Any roofing contractor wants to close after an in home presentation. A reputable roofing contractor wont pressure you into signing, or make you feel bad about not. If you refuse to sign at the original price, and all of a sudden he can give you thousands of dollars in discounts…. he wasn’t being honest. Most discounts should be given before the initial price, and any afterwards will only be a couple %.

Make an educated decision before hiring your roofing contractor, and you wont regret it.

    Professional service from respectful contractors. They left the job site clean and met the project deadlines as promised. They also responded to questions in a reasonable time frame. I would recommend them to anyone looking for quality work from a reputable company.

    Great company. I called S & S after the recent storms in the area caused some damage to my siding. I was a little nervous due to a piece of siding hanging from my cable lines.

Everything is better than new! Thanks Julian and the team! No

    We recently had our roof redone by S & S. We dealt with Zack who was very professional from start to finish. The roof was done in a little over a day and they left no evidence they were even there (except for the beautiful new roof!)We are very happy with our experience and will definitely be using them again in the … read more future.

    WOW. I only write reviews when I am thoroughly impressed. I had such a wonderful experience with S&S. I am very much looking forward to doing business with them again. Gary and Zach are two names that stick out for me, but the entire team--as was the job--deserves acknowledgement.Professional, friendly and very accommodating... … read more even when they didn't have to be!!Thanks S&S!

    Gavin Subers was excellent at reviewing our needs and recommended a Craftbuilt-Aristocrat retractable awning for our residence. We had the work completed in April and couldn't be happier. Joe Paris and his assistant (also named Joe) did a great job on the installation. I highly recommend S & S Remodeling!

    Would recommend S & S highly. Being a senior citizen and not knowing what is what. I needed a new roof and Zach worked with me and his crew did a phenomenal job. Thank you so much again Zach. Will be calling in the future to get more work done. God Bless, Frank and Ann Marie Dunlap Siermine.
