Your roof is one of the major factors contributing to your home's security. That's why your entire home is at risk whenever you need a roof repair.
Before looking for a roofer, it’s important to consider the most critical factors. At Intelligent Design Corporation, we specialize in roofing and want to ensure you know what factors affect whether or not your new roof will protect your home.
CHOOSE A COMPANY WITH EXPERIENCE IN THE ROOFING MATERIAL YOU DESIRE
Everyone knows that choosing a roofing contractor with experience is important. However, what’s not widely known is the fact that every contractor can’t do every type of roof. There are multiple types of roofing materials within the industry. You can choose to have a traditional shingle roof, metal roof, tile roof, slate roof… the list goes on and on.
Before you choose a roofing company, you have to know whether they specialize in the roofing material you prefer for your house. At Intelligent Design Corporation, our specialty is roofing, which means we can install many different types of roofing materials with ease and confidence.
CHOOSE A ROOFER THAT DOESN’T OUTSOURCE
There are many businesses these days that don’t have a dedicated crew. These businesses hire contractors to complete the work you hire them to do. By doing that, the contracting company may fail to deliver the product you want.
To avoid this problem, hire a roofing contractor who doesn’t outsource their work to another contractor. When you work with one company, you decrease the chances of your roofing project failing.
CHOOSE AN INDUSTRY LEADER
As in your line of work, information and technology are constantly changing within the roofing industry. As a result, contractors and businesses should take additional courses and certifications to remain effective.
To ensure you are getting the best in the industry, it’s imperative that you contract with a company that is forward-thinking and always takes educational classes or training to better their approach to roofing. At Intelligent Design Corporation, we are an industry leader. We work hard to ensure our crew is employing the latest in industry best practices.
CHOOSE A ROOFING COMPANY WITH A STRONG AMOUNT OF REVIEWS
A large amount of reviews is a critical consideration when you’re searching for a roofing company; it tells you quite a few things about a given business before you even pick up the phone to ask about their credentials!
For one, the fact that your potential roofing company has ample reviews in the first place demonstrates that customers are satisfied with what they’ve done. If that roofing company is willing to show off what they’ve done as exemplary, they no doubt expect you to feel similarly. They’re holding themselves to a high standard, which bodes well for your project.
But it isn’t just the fact that your roofing company has many reviews that warrants your attention; it’s what those reviews say in the first place. High ratings are, of course, desired, but pay attention to the notes the customers have left alongside them. What commonalities do you notice? Do they align with what you personally are hoping to get out of your relationship with your roofing company?
CHOOSE A ROOFING COMPANY THAT ISN’T SHY ABOUT ITS CREDENTIALS
Per the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry, “Residential contractors who perform roofing work must be licensed.” This is true whether the contractor in question performs work on existing homes, homes that are currently being built, either, or both.
The nitty-gritty of licensing is complicated and there are many different valid forms. Regardless, the roofing contractor you select should be forthcoming about its license number and other legal certifications that allow them to do their jobs should you ask for them.
Why? Because this is the best way to show to you, the customer, that they don’t cut corners and have nothing to hide when it comes to their work and their business.
