It seems that rain, wind, hail, and even tornadoes continue to increase in frequency and duration throughout Plano, TX and the DFW Metroplex area. While there is no way to control the weather, homeowners do have the option to choose a top roofing service to handle their roof repair or replacement after these storms come through.
Use a Local Company
By choosing an established, local roofing company, homeowners have the peace of mind in knowing that if there are any questions, concerns or even repair needs, the company is there to provide service under their guarantee. In addition to making sure the company is local, there are a few other checks to make before signing any contracts.
While most websites offer customer reviews, these are carefully selected to highlight only the most positive and glowing responses from customers. A better place to look is on general contractor review sites. Googling the company name and the word “reviews” provides a full listing of forums and feedback sites.
Check the BBB
Not every roofing company is a BBB member, but it is a good place to start. The BBB website lists the rating of the company as well as any complaints to the BBB and how they were resolved or handled by the company. High rates indicate a high level of customer service and support.
Make Sure the Company is Certified/Approved by Shingle Manufacturers
Many of the companies and individuals that come into the Plano, TX, area are not approved by the shingle manufacturers for installation. This can create significant problems for the homeowner if there is a warranty issue with the shingles in the near or distant future. If the shingles were not installed by an approved roofing company, the warranty is void.
Get a Written Estimate
The top companies always provide a written estimate. This includes materials, labor and any other services provided. Removal of waste material and cleanup of the area should be included as part of the price.
