3 Signs Of A Solid Gold Denver Roofer
3 Signs Your Denver Roofing Contractor’s
Reputation Is Solid Gold
From Reviews To Communication, Here’s How You Can
Tell You Are Dealing With A Stellar Roofer…Or NOT.
We’re not ignorant of the reputation roofing contractors have in the Denver area. It’s not great.
Nearly every homeowner has dealt with an unreliable, untrustworthy, or unqualified contractor. The good news is, the nightmare of hiring a sub-par roofer is totally avoidable if you know what to look for.
That’s why we put together this handy list of 3 signs your roofing contractor has a solid gold reputation…
#1: A PLETHORA Of Great Reviews
It might seem obvious, but reviews really do matter. Five-star reviews and specific praise is a good sign, but you should also pay attention to volume. If your roofer has one or two great reviews, they MIGHT be good.
But, if they have dozens of glowing reviews, chances are you have found a solid gold roofing contractor.
That’s why we’ve made it easy for you and put together a collection of reviews from countless satisfied home and business owners, so you can pour over the information for yourself.
We are in this business to help Colorado homeowners protect their homes for the long haul, so rather than get repeat business, we’d rather you refer us to everyone you know because you HAVEN’T had to fix your roof since.
For us, great reviews are just one way we can assure home and business owners alike that we are here for them with their best interest at heart.
#2: Awards, Achievements & CERTIFICATIONS
Awards and recognition are excellent, but the most important credentials a roofer can have are relevant industry certifications. Sure, we can tell you how great our track record and installations are, but legitimate credentials are a lot more convincing.
BBB accreditation is a great place to start, and having it is a good sign. ALWAYS make sure any contractors you work with are fully licensed, bonded, and insured. This gives you peace of mind in case anything goes wrong, AND it reduces the likelihood it will.
RoofTec is also OSHA certified, which is yet another sign that a company is doing things by the book.
As for specific roofing credentials, you cannot get better than a GAF Master Elite roofing contractor. Only 2% of roofers in the US can claim this status, and it comes with special perks, such as the ability to provide the Golden and Silver Pledge Warranties.
The Golden Pledge Warranty covers workmanship for 25 years and the product for 50! Between insurance and the Golden Pledge, your roof is one thing you WON’T have to worry about.
But, you’ll miss out on those benefits if you choose a roofer who lacks the proper credentials.
Remember how we said GAF only let’s Master Elite Roofers offer the Golden Pledge Warranty?
There’s a good reason for that. GAF doesn’t want to lose money, so they are not going to allow any fly-by-night roofer to take advantage of their warranties. They know that cutting corners leads to roofs that FAIL, and the only way to get great results is to do the job right the first time.
#3: Overall Professionalism
The third sign a roofer is honest, reliable, and all around worth trusting with your home and money is overall professionalism. This is not something that can be boiled down to one simple point, but it comes down to the general impression they give you.
Trust your instincts!
If a contractor fails to show up to a meeting or shows up late without calling, it’s a bad sign. Contractors who are rude, pushy, or overly sales-oriented are also to be avoided.
Most importantly, avoid contractors who are DISHONEST. Unfortunately, there is not a high bar of entry to get into the world of roofing, so proper installation procedures are ONLY followed if the company is legitimate and honest.
How can you tell if a contractor is being honest?
Again, there’s no surefire way to know, and it really does come down to your instincts and judgment. Arm-twisting sales tactics, a lack of respect for you and your time, and promises that seem too good to be true are all major red flags.
The best way to find the right roofer is to assess the whole package. If they have the reviews, the credentials, and the professionalism you look for, you might just have found a diamond in the rough Colorado roofing company.
