Signs of a fantastic roofing company

A good roofing company begins with a strong foundation. The roof protecting your greatest investment, your family home, needs a qualified roofing contractor protecting it. What are five key indicators that you can trust your home in the hands of a fantastic roofing company?

Local Roots

Look for a contractor with strong roots in your community. Victors Roofing, for example, is a family business committed to serving Michigan residents from our Canton offices.

Our current business license (you can look it up) was granted in 2010, and when it comes up for renewal in 2020, we intend to lock in another decade of quality, superior customer service. Can all prospective roofers you interview for roof repair, maintenance or replacement say the same thing?

 

Team Player

The best local roofing contractor engages and keeps the best local crew members. Before letting a contractor’s crew on your roof and property, make sure they have training, experience working together, and safety equipment to get the job done correctly.

Some contractors hire unskilled day laborers. Do you want your house to be their on-the-job training?

 

Paperwork

Ask a prospective roofer for proof of:

License — Victors Roofing proudly holds Michigan roofing License #2104196971

Insurance — This includes worker’s compensation insurance and liability protection so you, the homeowner, do not find yourself in the middle of a legal dispute over an injured worker

Guarantees offered — An oral promise is legally meaningless; get a guarantee, such as Victors Roofing’s 12-year, leak-free guarantee, in writing

Warranties — The best roofers earn manufacturers’ best warranties, such as the non-prorated, extended, 50-year SureStart PLUS 4-Star warranty Victors Roofing can offer from CertainTeed

 

Can You Hear Me?

Communication and availability are crucial for a successful roofing contractor to monitor a residential roofing job. Does the roofer provide an on-site manager, to whom you can turn for answers? Are you forced to leave messages on a machine — messages that are never returned?

 

Realistic Bids

Beware the lowball bidder on a residential roofing job. The enticing estimate will balloon quickly. Look to the mid-range bid of a reputable, local roofing contractor and compare upwards, not down.

A fantastic roofing contractor will provide a written estimate, with realistic figures for materials, crew time and a financial schedule.

 

When looking for a local, reputable roofing contractor for your Michigan residence, please contact us at Victors Roofing. We look forward to protecting the roof that protects your home.
