Top Tips for Finding a Roofing Company You Can Trust

Jul 02, 2021

No home’s roof is exempt from leaks, wear and tear, or even major damage. And when it comes to finding a roofing company for your roofing project, there are likely a multitude of options in your area alone. So, how can you be sure you’re choosing a contractor you can trust? Be sure to base your decision on finding a roofing company that:

Has a Proven Track Record

Repairing or replacing a roof is a major home investment, and when deciding on the ideal roofing company for your project, there’s no substitute for experience. Find a roofing contractor that has extensive knowledge in a number of areas, styles, and materials, so you can be sure you’re choosing a company that knows what they’re doing. Be sure to check a company’s website to gauge their experience level, or you can even ask them directly.

Possesses the Right Credentials

Certifications, licenses, and other accreditations can speak volumes about the trustworthiness of a roofing company. Is the contractor you’re looking to hire accredited with the Better Business Bureau? Are they the preferred contractor of a given manufacturer? Since these certifications are not given out to just anyone, they can be telltale signs that the roofing company you’re thinking of working with is both knowledgeable and professional.

Has Plenty of Positive Reviews

Although it’s not the most sure-fire approach, reading reviews left by past customers can be a quick and easy way to learn what kind of work and service you can expect to receive from a roofing company. Aside from checking the contractor’s website for reviews, you can also rely on Google reviews and other resources like HomeAdvisor and Angi for customer testimonials.

Offers Well-Priced Roofing Options

Have you already received a price quote from a roofing company? If the number seems too good to be true, chances are it probably is. An unbelievably low quoted price is often a red flag that the quality of work you can expect to receive will also be low. When searching for a trusted roofing company for your project, try to find a contractor whose quote lands in that sweet spot—not too high, not too low.

Offers a Warranty

If you come across a roofing company that does not back its work with a warranty, this is probably a sign that they aren’t very trustworthy. Although some companies may offer a warranty on the materials used on the project, at minimum it’s important to find a contractor that offers a warranty covering the quality of their workmanship. It’s also worth noting to always read the fine print.

Merritt was fantastic. I spoke with several highly rated companies for our replacement and this crew had a great combination of professionalism, value, and just a great personal connection. Victor and the rest of the team made a tremendous impression on my family and me, and the installation was done quickly and with great skill. I hope I never need to replace a roof again, but if I do, it'll be with these folks!

I had a complicated roof claim! Ryan was knowledgeable and super patient and assuring with what was going to happen during the process. Remember when the claims rep comes to inspect the damages, he is looking out for himself and his company's interests. A good roof rep will have your back, which is exactly what happened. Merritt Roofing bent over backwards to get my roof up with my intense schedule and I am extremely happy with how everything was handled in a very professional way! The new roof looks great and it got a good report by the inspector. Thanks a lot! Highly recommended.

We had a great experience with Merritt Roofing. Ryan Guest was on time and as friendly and helpful as can be. He went out of his way to make sure our roof was taken care of and kept us completely informed the entire time. Couldn't have asked for a better experience for a roofing issue. We definitely know now who to call in the future, thanks Ryan and Merritt Roofing for making it so easy.
