While building or remodeling a home or business, the shelter always consists of the basic elements, four walls and, you guessed it, a roof. If you are not doing the installations or replacement yourself, it can seem overwhelming to try to find a company you can trust to do the work. There are a lot of horror stories out there about contractors taking the money and leaving the job. Some even finish the job, but the work is not up to standards. How can you find a reliable roofing company for your big project?

Check with Your Friends

We have heard it time and time again, word of mouth is the best form of advertisement. It is  true. Now with the explosion of the Internet, we are accustomed to reading reviews of products before we commit to purchasing them. The same is true when trying to find a roofing company. Ask around. Talk to your neighbors. See who they used and if they would recommend them. Find out what kind of problems they went through and take note. Finding a local contractor is a great idea, especially if you live in the Jacksonville, Florida area. A local roofing company will know    the local rules and code regulations. They may even have connections with other local subcontractors.

Check Out the Better Business Bureau Ratings

The Better Business Bureau is a wonderful tool. It is there to inform consumers. If a business is reputable, it will have a great score. If a business has a bad reputation, it will have a bad score. If a business does not exist on the better business bureau’s website, stay away.

Confirm Insurance and Licensing

When interviewing a roofing company, it is very important to ensure that they have appropriate licenses and insurances. No one wants a problem when dealing with a building project. Unfortunately, things happen. If an accident is sustained while workers are on your property, it could lead to litigation. That is why it is important to make sure before the project starts the company hired has adequate insurance and appropriate licenses.

Get it in Writing

It may sound basic, but a lot of people forget to get agreements down in writing. It protects both you and the contractor. So before the handshake, be sure to have a contract in place. If you take the advice given in this article, then you’re well on your way to finding a roofing company you can trust.
