There are many different types of contractors out there, and while there are plenty of general contractors who handle this or that, when it comes time to get new roofing installed, you want contractors who have experience handling these types of cases. After all, that’s your bit of solid protection from the weather outside, and you definitely don’t want to see leaks or roofing coming loose after a good blow of wind.
While there are many options in most areas among contractors, narrowing down the list to find the best of the best takes a little bit more effort. However, this isn’t a difficult process. A little bit of research and effort can go a long way towards getting the results you need.
Word of Mouth Recommendations
Word of mouth recommendations are always among the most popular, and it’s not hard to see why. If you’re willing to put your reputation on the line to recommend a contractor, like we do with Rocky Mountain Exteriors roofing contractors Boise, then you are confident that the person or business you are recommending is going to do a great job and won’t let you down. This is why asking people you trust for a recommendation is a great way to get some good advice. Be a little bit more wary of strangers or acquaintances – they might be giving good advice but without that personal connection there is also a chance that you’re getting a “pitch for a friend” as opposed to someone who actually is known for doing incredible work.
Online reviews have really changed the game when it comes to looking for professionals. This not only includes specialized review websites like Angie’s List, but also general Google reviews. There are many people who are willing to put out their experience and by seeing contractors who have a long record of a lot of 5 star reviews, or a long record of terrible reviews, in both cases this gives you plenty of information to work with.
Take a look at the review history of each contractor and see what they have to offer, or what red flags they put up for you to avoid.
Use the Power of Google
Google, and other search engines, are some of your best friends when it comes to finding a reliable residential roofing contractor in your area and that’s not just with finding a list of contractors to talk to. Google terms like “Company Name Scam” or “Company Name Rip-Off” or “Company Name Lawsuit” and just see what comes up when you put all of these terms in. There might be nothing, or you might find some really eye-opening stories that give you all the information you need to move on to the next option.
