Congrats, you found your local roofing company in Flint, MI!
At Herbert Roofing, we want to provide you the best possible experience when replacing your roof. We know this process can be stressful – if you’re unclear of what to look for when deciding to replace your roof in Flint, take a look at what our team put together below:
Turn Away Storm Chasers
Chances are, you’ve had a handful of “storm chasers” stop by and claim they are your neighborhood roofers. If you’re approached by these so-called neighborhood roofers – beware. These knocks-on-the-doors are simply roofing contractors canvassing and selling their solution; and they conveniently stop by right after a large storm hits in the area.
Storm chasers use special programs to identify large storms and determine the value of affected homes in the area. Typically, they do not represent a well-established roofing company and may even ask you to sign a letter of intent. Always take your time to review bids and do your research on local roofing companies and contractors in the area, first, before you sign any documentation.
Ask for Local Referrals
Storm chasers and their related business proposition can turn into a scam quickly. In order to minimize your chances of going forward with roofing scammers, ask for referrals in your local community. Whether it be a family member, friend or acquaintance you ask, it’s always great to hear first-hand experience of someone who went through the roofing process. This way, you can gain insights into the roofing process and related expectations.
If you’re interested in hearing from our references at Herbert Roofing, we can always connect you with some of our past and current customers, so you feel comfortable in the decision-making process. We want to make sure you make the right decision for you and your home’s needs!
Evaluate Company Communication
Once you have a handful of roofing companies on your docket, make sure to pay attention to the communication between you and the company. A roofing company could be the best at replacing roofs, but if the company lacks in communication, your project may never be completed. Communication is key for any business, and it ensures the process is smooth and easy for clients.
From the initial request, make a note about their response time and communication. Did the company get back to you in a reasonable amount of time? Did they send you the correct documentation you requested? Did they follow through with any additional requests? If you answered “no” to any of these questions, it’s time to communicate your concerns to a representative or look elsewhere. You don’t want to be in a position in which you sign on the dotted line and your roofing project takes 2-3 times longer than you expected. If you have any Herbert Roofing-specific questions, let us know. We promise one of our representatives will be in touch soon, so you are not kept waiting.
