A roof in Florida is a big deal. And choosing the right roofing company can be a daunting task. There are many factors to consider and examine when choosing a roofing company in Jacksonville. This blog will take an in depth look at some of those factors.
Factors to Consider When Evaluating Jacksonville Roofing Companies
BEWARE OF FLY BY NIGHT ROOFERS-
For all intents and purposes, the goal of the vetting process is to find a reputable and trusted roofing company. Nothing’s guaranteed, yet a little research will often indicate or speak to the quality of the roofing company’s work. Hire a roofer that’s local- meaning an office or physical location within a reasonable driving distance from the home or business in question. Stay away from companies that don’t appear to be professional. The cheapest roof often ends up being much more expensive in the long run. On the other hand a quality roofing company will get the job done right the first time, and will be there to stand behind their work should you ever need them. Beware of “storm chasing” or “fly by night” roofers. Remember as a rule of thumb; a quality roofing company will never knock on your door, aggressively solicit business, or ask you to sign away insurance coverage.
CHECK GOOGLE REVIEWS-
Yes, it’s the internet. Negative content is more likely to be shared. Reviews should always be taken with a grain of salt. That said, if a company is doing shoddy roofing work it’s normally detectable in their Google reviews. If a Jacksonville Roofing Company has multiple negative reviews, that have descriptions and seem to legitimately illustrate a problem, that’s something to strongly consider. Sort the reviews by most recent, and see what local customers are saying about the company’s work. If there are recent reviews that are positive, and have descriptions that seem legitimate, this would be an indicator of a reputable roofing company.
Manufacturers of the roofing materials we install at your home or business, have a vested interest in promoting the roofing companies that are doing the best work. GAF the nation’s largest material supplier brands their best local roofing contractors in each area as “Master Elite.” Hiring a Jacksonville roofing company with “Master Elite” certification, increases the likelihood of a quality experience, and insures you’re getting the best materials, crews, and warranties. The best of “Master Elites” are recognized even further with what’s called the “Presidents Award,” the highest level of roofer installing GAF materials backed by GAF warranties. If you get a quote from a roofer who’s been recognized at this level, it’s reasonable to assume they are experts within the area and have successfully completed thousands of high quality jobs.
