4 Smart Tips to Hire a Reliable Commercial Roof Contractor

Nothing can fully prepare a homeowner for the task of replacing a roof or getting a new one. From identifying issues to deciding on next steps and choosing your roofing service provider, it can get a little overwhelming. Not to mention the expenses involved. Before you enlist the services of a roofing contractor, make sure you take these tips into consideration. 

 

1. Verify All Certifications and Memberships

Most reputable roofing service providers should belong to various certification bodies. You can simply verify this by contacting the respective bodies directly to make doubly sure you aren’t being scammed. This verification step is sure to inspire a lot more confidence in the contractor as you’ll have external proof that they’re good for the job. 

 

2. Communicate Openly

Just like you want the best service and product for your home, your roofing service provider also wants a job well done to add to their portfolio of successful work completed. They aren’t out to get you. It is important to establish direct and open communication with your potential roofer so both parties are clear on expectations from the get-go. This also helps solidify the relationship throughout the job, where you will find that communication is going to be most vital. 

 

3. Contracts and Insurance

Establishing good rapport with your roofing contractor is great, but don’t simply rely on that. It is extremely important to make sure that everything discussed, and all the terms of the agreement is put into writing. This protects both parties should there be any kind of miscommunication. Make sure payment agreements are also clearly stated in the contract. Alongside this, enquire about your potential roofer’s insurance policy and be certain this is also outlined in the contract, to protect you, the homeowner, from any liability on the part of the contracting team. 

 

4. Go local

Regardless of what the question is, oftentimes opting for the local option is always the smartest option. The building and construction industry is no exception to this. When it comes to selecting your roofing service provider, you should start by narrowing the pool of options down to local suppliers only. As a local business in the area, wouldn’t you want people to do the same for your business? They have an intimate knowledge of the area, including climate and weather patterns, they’re better placed to respond to emergencies quicker, and you’re able to get first-hand references and physical demonstrations of their previous work within the area.

“I replaced the roof and gutter, not my first time on the project. It's my first time working with Home Genius. I'm glad I chose this company. The crew that represent the company ( Buddy, Alex, Tim, Pablo, and the crew) are the greatest persons I've met. Very professional, pleasant, respectful, and they show up on time, they all take their time to explain all my questions/concerns and show me every step of the project. I am grateful to be served by these wonderful people and company.”

“Home Genius Exteriors replaced my entire roof and they were absolutely amazing. They were professional, did quality work, and had great customer service. We had missing shingles and Home Genius was able to complete our roof in less than a week from the estimate! Melissa did the estimate and was very knowledgeable and helped us make the best decision for our home. Casey was the project manager and she communicated all the information we needed, was on top of everything with the project, and was even helping clean up after the work was complete to make sure the yard was safe for my kids. Would definitely recommend Home Genius 10/10 they went the extra mile!”

“I’m very impressed with Home Genius Exteriors. From the sales opportunity, to ordering, and finally execution everything was smooth sailing. Rob, who sold us our roof, was educated on the product and process. He answered all my detailed questions with patience. A special comment must be left for our Project Manager, Mike, who went above and beyond in every way. He was always available, answers all our questions, thoroughly reviewed the work was done, and even let us know that he is available after the project with any questions. You can tell he truly takes pride in his work. I have worked with others, and so has my family, and I’ll tell you right now we’re sticking with Home Genius Exteriors for all future projects due to Mike’s customer service. Highly recommended company to work with! Our roof is gorgeous.”
