Top Five Things to Look for When Hiring a Metal Roofing Contractor - Blog by STOP Roofing Inc.

If you are thinking of finally getting your roof fixed or upgraded, your first step should be getting in touch with a professional. When it comes to roof repair and replacement, hiring an expert is worth it. Professional metal roofing contractors have years of experience, know everything about the materials and tools for the job, and can work quickly and efficiently. Expert roofers also have all the safety equipment and knowledge needed to get the job done safely.

Roofing is incredibly dangerous and complex. Missing a single step or even the slightest detail can lead to big problems. Therefore, hiring a professional metal roofing contractor makes sense. However, given the huge amounts of professionals available today, choosing the right contractor can be challenging. To help you narrow down your search for the perfect expert, here’s a list of the top five things to look for when hiring a metal roofing contractor.  

1. Make sure they are legitimate
When hiring a metal roofing professional, you should make sure that their business is genuine. You can confirm if they are legitimate by checking their license and verifying if they have WSIB insurance and liability insurance coverage. This way, you know that part of the cost of the roof and the service being provided to you is protected by the security of their insurance coverage in case damage is caused by them. 

2. Check their reviews
You can avoid picking the wrong roofing contractor by checking their reviews from previous clients on the company website. Google reviews is another excellent place to research what their clients have to say and how the business responds to them. Their business pages on Facebook are also very helpful as you can see reviews made by friends. This will help against fake reviews and vouches for the quality of the product and service you will receive. 

3. Determine their experience
Experience in the roofing industry is a big asset. The last thing you want is somebody with no experience working on your roof. With an inexperienced roofer, you could experience trouble and may have to pay double to fix the mess made by the contractor. Our company has skilled crew members on the roof who have several years of experience with premium metal.

4. Ask to see their work
Ask your roofer for references so that you can verify their work and follow up on them. You can even request to see a portfolio featuring some of their work. Having proof of a job well done will make you feel more comfortable in hiring the roofing contractor. If a roofing company hesitates or refuses to share references, keep looking for a contractor.

5. Don’t succumb to high-pressure sales
Don’t let anybody pressure you into buying something you are not comfortable with. If you feel pressured into a sale, do not sign anything unless you are comfortable and satisfied with the product or service being pushed. You can ask for time to think about the offer in case you’re uncertain. But, if they claim the offer is only for a limited time, it should set off the alarm bells in your mind.
