Choosing a roofer is an important decision. Their work will determine if your roof stays intact and in shape for the next 10 years. Any problems with their work on your roof could lead to more damage and possibly end up costing you thousands of dollars. Because of this you want to find a high quality roofer. Here are some places where you can find a good roofer.
The first place you should go to find the name of a high quality roofer is your family members or friends. These people have probably worked with a roofer before and can give you a fair and upfront assessment of their work. Ask these trusted people where they found the roofer, if they liked the job the roofer performed and if they would hire the contractor again. Also be sure to ask how much their budget was, if the roofer stayed within it and if any problems have since developed with their roofs.
The next place to look if your friends and family members cannot point you in the right direction is the local hardware shop or home improvement store. These people often deal with roofers and know a lot about their reputations. An online referral service may be another good place to find a quality roofer. A site like Angie's List allows you to read customer reviews for different roofers. The last place to search for a reputable roofer is in the Yellow Pages. An advertisement gives you no indication of how good the roofer's skills and business ethics are. If you do have to choose a roofer from the Yellow Pages, make sure you spend some extra time researching their references and reading past customer reviews. Your roof will thank you for doing your homework.
