Your roof is one of the most essential parts of your home. Whether you need repairs or a replacement, you don’t want to trust it to just anyone. However, finding a good roofer means sorting through the dozens of roofers in the area, and that can be a time-consuming process. It can also be hard to know if you’ve really made the best choice. Fortunately, there are a few ways to narrow down your list and feel more confident about your choice of a roofer in McKinney, Frisco, Allen or Plano.
1. Go Local
No doubt you can find local branches of corporate roofers in the area, and those may be the names that pop up the most often. However, it’s usually a better idea to choose someone local. Local roofers are experts in the area and know exactly what kind of McKinney weather roofs must withstand. They’ll also have a stronger reputation specific to your area, so you can get a clearer idea of the service they provide.
Since 1996, Kangaroo Contractors has replaced and repaired many roofs for many homeowners and residents throughout the DFW metroplex. We have seen all kinds of hail damage to roofs in McKinney, Allen, Frisco, Plano and other communities in North Texas.
2. Get Referrals (Then Do Research)
Today, you can simply search for roofers on Google, but it’s still a good idea to get referrals from people you know and trust. Do you have coworkers or neighbors who recently had their roof replaced? What about friends or family members who know a good roofer? How long have they been in business? What kind of roofs do they offer?
3. Get A Strong Warranty
Once you have a short list of roofers to consider, ask each of them what their warranties look like and how long are they good for. This will give you more than simply an idea of the pricing for each project. It is a way to weed out the lower end roofers. It will also give you a sense of the roofers themselves. We’re GAF Master Elite Roofing Contractors (License # ME40933) GAF is the oldest and largest roofing manufacturer in the US. That certification means you get a 50-year warranty on all products and a 10-year warranty on all labor. And we’re bonded and insured too, so you’re covered in case an accident happens.
4. Avoid Roofing Fraud
If you’ve ever had a roofer show up at your door, especially right after a storm, offering a free roof inspection and repairs for your roof, there’s a good chance these are “storm chasers.” It’s a common kind of roofing fraud, though it can go a few ways. They may take a deposit from you and disappear. They may cause damage to your roof themselves until the insurance will cover it. Regardless, it’s a scam that you’ll certainly want to avoid. It’s better to find referrals from friends and neighbors and to do your homework on any roofer that approaches you.
