You need a new roof for your Ft. Myers home. Where do you turn? There are any number of roofing installers to choose from, but you don’t want to choose just any roofing installer. You want to choose the right one. To do that requires careful consideration and some homework on your own. But don’t feel too daunted by the pressure of searching through all those roofing installers. Here are a few tips to make it easier:
There are roofing installers who have a wide reach when it comes to their service areas, or roofing installers who are just one branch of a national corporation. But when it comes to finding a trustworthy roofing installer in Fort Myers, you want someone local. Local Fort Myers roofers know the climate, as well as the people. They also stake their reputation in the place where they work, so they have to perform work to the satisfaction of their clients...or word will get around otherwise. Local roofers are also more familiar with local regulations, installation crews, and suppliers.
Look At Their Past Work
Found a roofing installer who looks good on paper but not sure how they’ll perform when you actually sign them on for your project? One way to get a sense of the kind of service you can expect is to look at their past work. Do they have reviews or testimonials available? When you talk to the roofer, do they provide references upon request? Better still, is a portfolio of their past work, or the ability to see a project they’ve done for yourself. Your roofing installer should be proud of the work they’ve done in the past. If they clam up at the idea of sharing that with you, you may need to look elsewhere.
Check Out Their Warranties
It’s a good idea to look at the warranty offered by the contractor for a few reasons. First of all, it gives you confidence that in the event of an accident, you can have your roof repaired or replaced without added cost for a certain amount of time. It also tells you how long the contractor expects their work to hold up. Finally, it’s a good way to gauge the trustworthiness of the roofer. For instance, if they have hidden fees in their warranty, or fine print that contradicts the bold print of their warranty, you know that’s a roofing installer who’s well acquainted with “catches.” That’s one to avoid.
