Need a Michigan roof replaced this Fall? Find the best roofing company for your project with these 4 tips.

Fall is one of the best times to replace your roof in Michigan. If you are looking to replace your roof or have an expert check your roof for needed repairs before the winter season, now is the time. But before you choose a roofing company to help with your replacement, read these four tips that will help you sign on with a reputable company and roofing crew:

Ask About Experience
It sounds simple, but there are many roofing company and contractor choices out there – often with minimal experience and expertise in the industry. In many cases, roofing company choice comes down to price; we highly recommend you base your final decision off multiple factors, as length of time in business, licensing & insurance, past work, and crew should all be heavily weighted. Even though replacing your home’s roof is expensive, it is worth paying the extra to get the job done right, so you don’t end up paying more later.

Check Licensing & Insurance
You would be surprised to learn about some roofing companies and their licensing & insurance best practices. That is why we recommend learning about these things early on in your search for a new roofing company. Reputable roofing companies have high standards and must hold permits and licenses for every roofing job. Make sure to ask your roofing company about these expectations and if they carry required insurance for the entire crew. You certainly do not want to be responsible for anyone who becomes injured on the job!

Look at Past Work Online
It is so easy to look up a roofing company and their work online. In fact, more than 80% of consumers research online before making a purchase or final decision. With a purchase like a new roof, it is important to do your research on the company and crew that will be completing the roofing job.

Start by looking up the roofing company or contractor on the Better Business Bureau or GuildQuality to see feedback from consumers, and check website ratings and reviews. Many homeowners also ask for a handful of references to contact about the company’s work. If they hesitate to give you names of contacts, it is best to look elsewhere!

Cover Performance & Satisfaction
You do not want a roofing company that uses bait and switch tactics. Make sure to ask about company performance and crew qualification. Sometimes, companies will contract out work to unqualified crew members, so it is important to ensure this is not the case. Before you sign on the contract dotted line, also discuss what happens if you are unsatisfied with the work.
