Choosing a good roofing contractor can be difficult. A new roof for your home or commercial building is a big investment, and making sure you choose a qualified reliable roofing company is a very important decision. Here are some tips for making your decision easier!
#1- Choose a company that has been in business for a long time
Many roofing companies advertise their “total years of experience” or “years of experience in the roofing industry”. While those are good things to note, this does not mean that their roofing company has been in business for any length of time. The roofing business is very competitive, and many companies only last for a few years. It is not uncommon for someone to start a roofing company, close their doors a few years later, and then start another company with a different name. That is a big red flag and something to watch out for. A company’s warranty is only good for as long as they stay in business. If you get a new roof with a 10 year workmanship warranty, and the company goes out of business, there goes your warranty. CC&L Roofing Company has been in business since 1978. That’s 36 years! Always compare length of time in business when you are considering roofing bids.
