3 MOST IMPORTANT THINGS TO LOOK FOR IN A QUALITY ROOFER
Shopping around for a roofer for your home? The choices can at first be overwhelming, but the results of hiring a less-reputable roofer can certainly be underwhelming – frustrating, even.
It goes without saying that location is important. Aside from a roofer that’s local, however, be sure to look out for the following three qualities of a prospective roofer.
Fully Insured and Fully Prepared
All good roofers want to perform quality work on your roof, but no matter how many precautions are taken, accidents can and do happen. The thing is, an accident on your roof can be costly, and you certainly don’t want to be faced with remediating this damage when it should be under the liability of the roofer.
Every quality roofer must be fully insured to perform work on your roof. Not only does this protect you by giving you peace of mind that they’ll set it right at no additional cost to you, but also that their business will be able to continue operating so that they can complete the project.
Let’s not forget fully-prepared, either. Roofing tools and equipment are necessary, as are building materials. All of these must adhere to building codes and standards within Australia, so no rickety old wooden ladders, for instance.
Qualified to Get the Job Done Right
Just about anyone can go about claiming to be a roofer, but what sets apart a good roofer from a fly-by-night business? Qualifications, experience, and a good reputation in the community is a good start.
A great benefit of the internet is that it’s just so easy to find ratings and reviews from previous customers, and good roofing companies won’t hesitate to provide you with references and testimonials as evidence that they can be trusted to work on your roof.
Keep your eyes on roofers that have been around for years, are well-known in the community, and employ tradespeople that have all the requisite trade school qualifications and certificates.
Free, No-Obligation Quotes
Since your roof is one of the most valuable investments you can make on your home, it stands to reason that the cost of effecting roofing installations, repairs, or replacements can vary quite a bit. We’re not talking a tenner here or there, but a few thousand to tens of thousands depending on the scale and scope of work to be performed. Why settle on a contractor without knowing, quite accurately, what you can be expected to pay?
Always keep your eyes peeled for roofers offering free, no-obligation quotes. You shouldn’t have to ever pay for a roofing quote, nor should you be expected to hire them after receiving the quote. A good roofer knows what they’re worth, so avoid companies offering unrealistically low quotes as much as you’d likely avoid exorbitantly pricey quotes.

Not only does this provide you with peace of mind that you will be paying a fair price for quality work, but you’ll also have a reasonable idea of how long the project will take.
