How To Choose The Best Local Roofing Contractor

Do you need a roof repaired? How about a complete roof replacement? At Chriswell Home Improvements we know how important the integrity of your roof means to you and your family. It can feel daunting to find one roofer in Sacramento to work on your roofing project.

You’ll need to call different local roofers to get quotes, check their contractor licenses, and confirm insurance coverage. You’ll probably spend a few weeks meeting with the top three-to-five roofers you’ve discerned as the best deal. Then from that group, you’ll narrow it down to one-or-two.

Finally, you’ll make your decision and choose the best roofer for your project; it’s an extended process that shouldn’t take more than a week, and, in this post, we’ll share some tips on how to make this process easier on you and your family.

The top five tips to find the best local contractor

Ask friends and family

If you know someone who’s recently had roof repair or roof installation, ask them who they used. You can ask them a few other questions like:

  • Would you use the roofing contractor again?

  • Would you recommend the roofing contractor?

  • What was your repair or installation, and how much did it cost?

Call local roofing contractors and ask questions

The easiest way to get more information on roofers in Sacramento is to call them. In many cases, you’ll call a collection of contractors for information, quotes, and more. Here are a few questions you should ask potential roofers:

  • How long have you been in business?

  • Do you offer a free on-site inspection/quote?

  • Do you have references I can call?

  • Are you properly licensed?

  • Are you properly insured?

  • When can you come look at my roof?

Schedule in-person meetings with roofing contractors

Once you’ve decided on two-or-three contractors, meet them in person. In most cases, the contractors will want to come out to your home to discuss your roofing needs, whether repair or installation. This is a great time to ask more questions, confirm information you’ve discovered online, and get a feel for the contractor.

Review the quotes and make a decision

It can be easy to choose the cheapest quote when picking a roofing contractor, but make sure you’re also getting the highest-quality craftsmanship along with the price. It’s common to choose the lowest price, and we understand. Consider quality alongside price to ensure your roof is repaired or installed properly.

Set payment schedule and get a contract

At this point, you should have decided on a quote and confirmed the price with your chosen roofer. You’ll want to get the offer in writing before you allow any work to be completed on your home. This protects you and the contractor from future conflict. Also, set a payment schedule with the contract, so that you know what and when you’re expected to pay throughout the project.
