It is fair to say that most homeowners have no idea what to look for in a roofing contractor besides testimonials and work examples. Although this initial process proves itself to be effective when it comes to hiring local roofing contractors for small work whether you need them to fix a roof leak, re-install broken shingles or even reinstall your entire roof, however, 90% of house owners fail to go deeper. What do I mean by deeper? Well, if you are truly serious about hiring truly skilled roofing experts for a big project, it is worth investing some time to find out about their company’s history. Today, we will dive deep and discuss the importance of hiring trained roofing contractors in Iowa.


Do Not Shy Away From Researching a Roofing Company

If a roofing company doesn’t have enough client reviews, testimonials and work examples – do not ever bother contacting them for estimate. Why? Because if they were serious about their and especially if they’ve provided great customer service and work quality, they would definitely proudly display all of their roofing work right there on your website where you have found them, or on their social media profiles. If they do not have these 2 main elements of service quality, continue down your list and proceed to the next roofing firm.

What Else Do I Need To Check To Judge The Quality of A Roofing Company?

If you are confident that a specific company’s testimonials and reviews are legitimate and they have at least 5 recent projects to display on their site, the 3rd thing you need to do is find out what institutions and business communities they belong to. Best one is the Better Business Bureau because if the roofing company’s work is accredited by them, it means that they do quality work. Period. Apart that, find out where they got their roofing license from (if a license is required to perform roofing work of course) because that will really help you find out if they are trained and educated properly to do the work you need to be done on your property’s roof. See the problem is that most people either do not realize that this question is important to ask or they simply shy away from asking it because it brings them out of their comfort zone. Well, with 48+ years of experience in the roofing industry and examining hundreds of roofing companies, we can confidently tell you that it is better to ask the hard questions that will tremendously help you achieve success rather than have your property damaged by poor roofing work because the company you have hired did not have the required set of skills to do the job properly.



Contact Previous Customers of The Roofing Firm

Finally, when you’ve checked if they have great testimonials, reviews and proof of work, the 4th thing you need to do to dig deeper and find out what their previous customers have to say personally. When I say that, I do not mean reading the roofing testimonials again, but asking the roofing firm for at least 4 referals (previous customers) you can contact and interview. This will the the biggest eye opener for you. Why? Because previous customers who have experienced a specific roofing company’s service will not shy away from telling the truth.
