You have started looking for a roofer for your Birmingham-area home. Then it hits you: What are you supposed to be looking for? How do you set standards for finding the best roofing contractor for your needs? Here are six essential attributes to expect from the very best roofer.
The roofer you select should demonstrate a readiness to protect your home, yard, landscaping, family members, and pets. Expect to see protective tarps for flower beds and shrubs, a magnetic broom to pick up metal debris in the yard, and a project manager who watches out for unexpected interactions (in other words, Fido runs out the front door).
Good roofers are not afraid of past customers. They can provide testimonials from satisfied clients, and they welcome you to tour previous jobs (either by browsing their website or by driving by the homes).
Good roofers are courteous to their customers and prospective clients. They respond promptly to questions and provide clear, understandable answers. This is not just good business; it’s good manners that make our Mommas proud.
A dedicated, involved roofing contractor has a presence in the community. Such a contractor works to make the neighborhood, community, and town better for all, not just themselves. You can see their dedication to the community involvement everyone in the company contributes to.
Don’t get us wrong; good roofers don’t work for the plaudits and awards. The best roofing contractors are grateful, though, to be recognized for the time and effort they put into training. Certifications from roofing materials manufacturers mean the workers installing your roof are doing so correctly. Plus, it keeps your warranties intact.
Yellowhammer Roofing, for example, has two critical members of its team on Owens Corning’s Platinum Advisory Board. We also are a Platinum Preferred Contractor with Owens Corning, and we have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
