4 Top Qualities to Look for in a Roofing Contractor

As your home’s main line of defense, your roofing system should always remain in top form throughout the seasons. Whether you need a repair or replacement, make sure to work with a contractor who can do the job right the first time. Here are the four qualities you need to look for in a contractor:

  1. Proper Licensing and Insurance: Most states, including Mississippi, require licensing for roofers. Ask to see a copy of the contractor’s license for validation. Your contractor should also have the necessary insurance for protection from liabilities in case of accidents. These elements give you the assurance that the contractor is adhering to industry and government standards in performing their work.
  2. Manufacturer Certifications: These certifications give you significant insight into the workmanship and product quality of a contractor. To earn manufacturer certifications, contractors have to comply with stringent requirements such as vast industry experience and a satisfactory community standing. Certified contractors give you access to industry-leading products that come with superior warranties.
  3. Proven Character: While many residential roofing contractors claim that they deliver only the highest quality of service, customer satisfaction remains the real measure of a company’s professionalism. Always request a list of references to get an idea of what your experience will be like if you choose to work with the contractor. You don’t need to call everyone on the list; three references should be enough to prove the contractor’s reputation.
  4. Excellent Communication: Maintaining a clear line of communication with your contractor is crucial in keeping your project on budget and on schedule. Before signing a contract, establish a plan for communication with your contractor and set expectations.
