Our team at Mathis Home Improvements, Inc. understands that your home is important to you, and we want to help you take the best possible care of it. Although there are some home repairs and improvement projects you can probably take on yourself, when it comes to your roof, your best option is always to hire a professional roofing company to do the work for you. In this article, we’ll go over a few tips on how to choose the right roofing company for your needs.
- Shop Local- When choosing a roofing company, we recommend you start your search by looking at local businesses, rather than larger chains. The reason for this is because local companies will have closer ties to your community and therefore have greater motivation to deliver high-quality results and customer service.
- Check Insurance- Another thing to look for when choosing a roofing company is the right insurance coverage. Roofing is actually one of the most dangerous trades, with a high risk for on-the-job accidents, and the last thing you want is to have to pay for the costs of someone’s medical bills because your roofing company didn’t carry the necessary insurance coverage. Our team is fully insured, so you will never have to worry about covering the costs of any injuries or damages that may occur during the course of the project–and while we of course make every effort to avoid such situations in the first place, we acknowledge the risk and are prepared for it.
- Get It In Writing- A third thing you should do when choosing a roofing company is get estimates for the project in writing. This way, you can look at the company’s pricing and the exact work they will be doing and decide from there. If a roofer won’t give you a written estimate, you can skip them altogether.
