You want to hire a responsible, experienced, and honest roofing company. Hire the one you can depend on in the long run. This post tells you how to choose the best roofing company for your home.
Ask About Their Compensation and Liability Insurance
Cover your bases. A responsible roofing contractor insures their employees and customers. Ask about their compensation policies and liability policies.
Please don’t take their word for it. Ask to see worker’s compensation and liability documentation. Hiring a roofing contractor without this reassurance is a gamble. If the roofer you hired is uninsured and a worker gets injured on your property, you may be made accountable.
Ask About Unplanned Repairs (Or Replacement)
We’ve all heard of the expression: things don’t always go as planned. It’s a good one because it’s true. It’s also true when it comes to your roof replacement. Weather changes, unexpected obstacles pop up, and mistakes happen.
What if heavy rain swoops in, delays your roof replacement, and causes more damage. Or, what if a challenge that wasn’t visible during the inspection surfaces. Or, what if one of their workers makes a mistake.
They should have a protocol for bad weathering. They should inform you of any discoveries. And, most importantly, they should admit their mistake– and take the time to correct them.
So, do their roofing services include unplanned repairs? Ask them.
Know Your Roofing Material Options (Increase Resale Value)
Do some research on different roofing materials. Each type of roof is unique in what it can do.
For example, a lot of homeowners choose asphalt shingles. It’s affordable and appeases most home models. It would seem like a no-brainer to choose this type of roof over other pricier options.
Here’s the thing: you live in South Florida– the area most prone to hurricanes in the United States. Asphalt shingles are a lightweight material which means powerful winds can blow shingles right off. This leaves your home’s structure vulnerable to hurricane damage. This option may not be ideal for coastal homes.
Installing a new roof is a sure way to increase your resale value. A new roof gives your home a brand new appearance. Potential buyers will flock to your property– and make worthwhile offers.
If you understand how your roof material enhances your home, you can explain that to a potential buyer and drive the value of your home up.

Get (At Least) 3 Price Quotes
Getting multiple bids gives you a ballpark idea of what you should spend. You could go higher than three. The more quotes, the better you’ll be able to spot the overpriced roofing services.
At least get 3 quotes. With 3 quotes, you can set your budget and establish a connection.
It’s important not to decide based on price. Instead, get comfortable talking to roofing companies. Get to know them.
