Even if you’re not in the Denver area, please read this article on how to choose a great roofer to repair fire or hail damage in your area.
How to Choose a Roofing Company
When you type into Google, “roofer near me,” you get an unedited list of businesses near you. What you don’t get is a way to figure out what roofer to choose.
Check on an app – there are lots of apps that will offer to help you find home improvement contractors. This is not a bad place to start, but there are a few things to know.
- Often the prices are higher – Those apps charge a fee for their referrals. Some also have annual fees that the contractor must pay. Since contracting isn’t a high profit business, having to give a percentage to someone for a customer lead can be expensive. They will pass that cost onto you because they have to.
- There are limited choices – Many of those apps limit the number of contractors that can be listed in an area. That means that you might not see some of the best contractors. All of it will be decided by a computer mapping program that might not show you someone that’s an extra 1/2 mile from you but is perfect for the job.
- They might not be insurance experts – Unlike other types of home projects, there’s an insurance company to deal with. That means that the contractor needs to know how to bid your project perfectly to make sure everything is accounted for. There might not a be a chance to get more money if the contractor makes a mistake. They also need to know how to submit the paperwork, get themselves paid, and make sure that your home is restored to its original condition.
Like we said, it’s okay to check an app, but don’t stop there. An insurance claim for fire or hail damage is complex. You need someone you can trust who can handle all of the paperwork.
Next, Google “roofer near me”. You might also look at Googling “fire restoration roofer near me” or “hail restoration roofer near me”. That will help you find businesses that specialize in restoration work with insurance companies.
After you’ve found at least three possible companies, look for reviews online at Google or Yelp. If they’re all perfect, something’s wrong. Some should have no notes and there are usually at least one or two that aren’t 100% thrilled. That’s okay.
If there’s a pattern in the negative reviews, don’t bother with that company.
Finally, you can call those companies and ask them to do a binding quote. The company that can meet your needs: price and timeframe is the one you should go with.
Talk to your insurance agent about the company you’ve chosen. They can tell you if they know of problems with that company. You need a business that’s established and reliable.
