The Importance of Choosing a Qualified Roofing Contractor for Your Roof Replacement
It wouldn’t be right if I didn’t include something on how to choose the “RIGHT” roofing contractor.
It’s no secret, in life, all things are not equal and the roofing industry is no exception.
Unfortunately, the roofing industry in Ontario has almost zero regulation.
This means unlike other types of Contractors, there is no governing body.
This means there are no standards a roofer must meet before installing your roof.
Furthermore, as a consumer, you have no protection from low-quality or unethical roofing companies.
That’s why choosing a qualified roofing company is so critical.
When choosing a roofing company for your roof replacement, keep the following in mind.
How To Choose a Qualified Roofing Contractor
Although these are simple steps, they can protect you from making a mistake that could cost you thousands.
Choose a Local Reputable Roofing Company
Hire a company close to you and one with a great reputation. This ensures in the event of a problem, you’ll be able to reach them.
Ask Your Friends and Family Who They Used
Hiring a company through referral is always an excellent idea. Since the person referring has already experienced their service.
Ask for Proof of Insurance and WSIB
This might sound silly, but the truth would surprise you. Take our word for it – ASK.
Check Out Their Online Review and Reputation
Don’t just look, read through the comments, the good and the bad. Get an understanding of how the business operates.
Never Hire a Roofing Company Who Knocks On Your Door
Reputable roofing companies don’t knock on doors. Rather potential clients call them. NEVER hire a roofer who knocks on your door and promises a bargain.
Although simple, these points will serve you well, I promise.
But maybe you want to skip the frustration of trying to find a reputable roofing company.
