How Do I Choose the Best Roofing Contractor for the Job?

March 31, 2022

New asphalt shingles on a forest green home's roofHow Do I Choose the Best Roofing Contractor for the Job?

Planning a roof replacement or new roof installation is a big task, and it can be challenging to know how to choose the best roofing contractor to help you meet your goals. However, you can follow a few guidelines to make sure you pick a reliable, honest contractor that stands behind their work. We outline a few of these criteria below.

Does the Contractor Have a Guarantee?

One of the most critical factors that indicate you’re partnering with a reputable roofing contractor is a warranty on labor or materials. Be sure to ask if they guarantee your satisfaction and what steps they will take to remedy the situation if you’re unhappy with your new roof. A roofing company that doesn’t offer you peace of mind and refuses to stand behind its work isn’t one you can trust.

Is the Company Top-Rated and Certified?

More clear indicators that a roofing contractor is qualified are high ratings from other customers and industry certifications. Check the company’s testimonials and ask if its roofers are certified by any organizations. For example, at Five Star Improvements, we have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and are accredited by the following:

  • National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA)
  • Better Contractors Bureau (BCB)
  • Certified Contractors Network (CCN)

These are a few signs that the roofing contractor you’re partnering with is reliable and trustworthy.

What Materials Does the Roofing Contractor Use?

Ask your potential new contractor what manufacturers it sources roofing materials from. Verify that these sources are known for high-quality, long-lasting materials. A couple of top manufacturers to look for are Owens Corning® and GAF®.
