Your roof is one of the most essential parts of your home. Whether you’re in need of repairs or a replacement, you don’t want to trust it to just anyone. However, finding a good roofer means sorting through the dozens of roofers in the area, and that can be a time consuming process. It can also be hard to know if you’ve really made the best choice. Fortunately, there are a few ways to narrow down your list and feel more confident about your choice of Milwaukee roofer.
No doubt you can find local branches of corporate roofers in the area, and those may be the names that pop up the most often. They have the widest reach and probably the best promotional resources. However, it’s usually a better idea to choose someone local. Local roofers are experts in the area and know exactly what kind of Milwaukee weather roofs have to withstand. They’ll also have a stronger reputation specific to your area, so you can get a clearer idea of the service they provide.
Today, you can simply search for roofers on Google, but it’s still a good idea to get referrals from people you know and trust. Do you have coworkers or neighbors who recently had their roof replaced? What about friends or family members who know a good roofer? From their recommendations, you can go home and do research. What kind of reviews do the suggested roofers have? How long have they been in business? What kind of roofs do they offer?
Once you have a short list of roofers to consider, get quotes from each of them. This will give you more than simply an idea of the pricing for each project. It will tell you what kind of quality you can receive for your money. It will also give you a sense of the roofers themselves. Do they answer your calls promptly? Do they clarify all points to your satisfaction? Are they able to show proof of license and insurance? These will all give you a strong idea of whether or not you want to work with this roofer.
If you’ve ever had a roofer show up at your door, especially right after a storm, offering a free roof inspection and repairs for your roof, there’s a good chance these are “storm chasers.” It’s a common kind of roofing fraud, though it can go a few ways. They may take a deposit from you and disappear. They may cause damage to your roof themselves until the insurance will cover it. Regardless, it’s a scam that you’ll certainly want to avoid. It’s better to find referrals from friends and neighbors and to do your homework on any roofer that approaches you.
