Our homes are one of the biggest investments we make in our lives, and they require a lot of care and maintenance to uphold their overall value.

One of the most valuable aspects of your home is your roof, and you shouldn’t just let anyone tackle your home’s roofing projects. Even though all roofers might seem like they can get the job done, not all roofing contractors provide high-quality roofing work at an efficient pace. That’s why as a homeowner you should do your research before you hire a residential roofer you can trust to work on your home’s roof.

Validate their license and insurance documentation.

If you’re working with a legitimate, reliable roofing company, the roofing contractors at the company should be able to provide proof of a roofing license and proper insurance documentation when asked for it.

Each state has their own requirements for roofing licensing, and you can verify if the roofing company you’re interested in has a license by checking in with your local state or county agency. Roofing licenses ensure people aren’t just bringing hammers and tools to your home with no prior training. Licensed roofing contractors should be more educated and experienced in roofing than just anybody.

There are two types of insurances you should ask a roofing company they have before hiring the company to work on your home’s roof: workers’ compensation insurance and liability insurance. These insurances protect you from any liability in the case of injury or other events that could lead to a potential lawsuit, especially since work is being performed on your property.

Get references from friends and family.

The best references for anything you might need come from people you trust, especially in regards to home improvement companies and services. If you have friends, family, co-workers or others you know in your community that has had work done on their roofs, don’t be afraid to ask if they know of a roofing company they trust. Nothing is more reliable than an in-person, face-to-face testimonial.

Research their reputation in your community.

We suggest researching the roofing contractors you’re interested in hiring online first to see what their reputation is in your community. Check out their online reviews, utilize local resources such as your local Chamber of Commerce, and view their Better Business Bureau score. This will give you a better feel for the type of service their company offers as well as how good they actually are at their jobs.

Remember that you get when you pay for.

Like most things in life, you always get what you pay for. The higher the cost of a service or product, the more likely you’re getting a higher quality service or product. If you opt to get something just because it’s cheap, just keep in mind you’re likely going to receive cheap work.

At The Edge Contractors, we provide high-quality work at affordable prices, even though we might not be as cheap as hiring your next-door neighbor. We also ensure our roofing contractors get the job done right the first time, refraining you from having to put money into your roof for repairs and touch-ups in the future.
