4 Quick Tips on Hiring Roofing Contractors

Remember: a roofing project is essentially a collaboration between you and your contractor. That’s why it’s important that you hire a residential roofing contractor who’s a good match for your needs. 

To help you get started on the hiring process, here are some quick vetting tips: 

1. Compile a Shortlist by Asking for Referrals

You can compile a shortlist of contractors by asking referrals from friends and family, or inquiring at your local builders’ association. 

2. Check the Contractor’s Online Reviews to Gauge the Level of Customer Service

Online customer reviews should give you a good idea of the level of customer service you can expect from a contractor. The lack of an online presence is a red flag in itself; there’s just no excuse for not having a website in this day and age. Keep in mind that a negative review isn’t necessarily a deal-breaker – miscommunication can sometimes happen. It’s the contractor’s response to the complaint that’s important.  

3. Check the Contractor’s Qualifications

Once you’ve narrowed down your shortlist, check each contractor’s qualifications. Make sure to ask for their license number and proof of insurance. Keep in mind that a license is simply proof that a contractor has met the minimum requirements to practice their trade in the state. If you want to gauge their level of expertise better, check their certifications. Certifications, usually given by independent non-profits or manufacturers, are proof a contractor has undergone additional training to improve their craft. 

You should also check how many years they’ve been in the industry. The more experienced a contractor is, the higher their level of expertise. 

4. Schedule an Onsite Consultation

After whittling down your list to a few choices, you can schedule a consultation. (Most contractors offer free no-obligation consultations for roof repair and replacements.) It would be a good idea to ask for recommendations during the consultation: a face-to-face consultation should tell you whether a contractor is a good match for your remodeling needs.

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

Matt Stone

Excellent experience, prompt and professional estimate, showed up on schedule (actually a day early) and did a thorough and complete job. All personnel were professional,polite and great at their jobs. Would recommend to anyone.

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
