What A Good Roofing Company Looks Like and How to Avoid the Bad Ones
Have you been looking up at your roof lately and thinking ‘gosh, I really need to do something about that’?
Perhaps you’ve noticed leaks after a recent storm and your expensive furniture is dangerously close to getting wet.
Or maybe you just want to freshen your roof up a bit and get it back to its former glory.
Whatever the reason for you to consider engaging with a roofing company, you want to ensure that you are working with the very best of the best.
Leaving the quality of your roof repairs or restorations in the hands of fate can have some disastrous and ultimately expensive consequences.
At the very best, you’ll pay too much for a job that doesn't look great. At the very worst, you’ll have to pay for an entire new roof.
So let's avoid all that misery from the start.
In today's blog, we are going to go over the top things you should look for when hiring a roofing company to undertake work on your property.
1. Look for licensing and qualifications:
Make sure you check or ask about their relevant qualifications. There are many different types of roofs and consequently, you should ensure that the tradespeople you contract to fix your roof are not just experienced but qualified with specialist qualifications.
In Queensland, you MUST have these qualifications to practice roofing:
- Queensland Building & Construction Commission Roofing License
- General licenses for nominee supervisors and trade contractors
- Roof tiling / wall cladding license
- Safe Work Method Statement (SMS)
2. Ask About Warranties and Guarantees
This one seems obvious, but in the heat of the moment when considering quotes, deadlines and the possibility of bad weather, it can be easy to be whisked away from crossing your t’s and dotting your i’s.
Roo Roofing offers all customers a warranty of up to 10 years on the installation of their roofs and the manufacturing warranties usually last up to 36 years.
You may have the best, most 5 Star reviewed roofer in the world. You still want that peace of mind.
3. Ask About their Insurance
It goes without saying that, in addition to warranties and guarantees, you want to hire a roofer with adequate insurance. While you are talking to your potential roofing company, make sure you ask them about their Public Liability Insurance and their Product Liability Insurance.
4. Check their Reviews
There’s lots of homework you can do to check the legitimacy of a roofing company and the quality of their craftsmanship but one of the best things you can do is check what their customers are saying about them. You can check their reviews on Google and Facebook and if you're still not sure, it might be worth checking the comments of their social posts.
It’s a big decision; but armed with this list of questions, you’re in a much better position to choose the right roofing company for your roof installation or repairs.
