Most homeowners don’t think about their roof until there’s a problem, however, the best time to find a roofing contractor you trust is before there’s an issue. Tampa Bay’s weather can take a toll on your roof. It can go from protecting your home well to leaking afterjust one storm. Having a trusted roofer before you have an issue will help keep your home dry.
What Your Roofing Company Can Do Before a Storm
We recommend that you have a roofing inspection at least once every other year and as often as once every six months as your roof nears the end of its useful life. By doing this, your roofing company can point out and recommend fixes for things like loose shingles, failing sealant and other things that aren’t necessarily leading to a roof leak now but may during a big storm. When you have a trusted roofer, you know that they are putting your interests first and not their bottom line.
How to Find a Trusted Roofer
There are literally hundreds of roofers serving Tampa Bay and the surrounding areas. Some have more experience than others. Some are truly local roofers where others come only when there is a big storm. Here are three things you can do to find out if the roofing company you’re considering is a local, licensed and qualified roofer.
- Check their license on the Florida contractor’s licensing database. Remember there are two levels of roofing contractors in our state with CRC being the higher designation.
- Read their reviews. A local roofing company will have many local reviews on different sites. Just remember no company can please every customer so you don’t have to dismiss a roofer for just one or two negative reviews if they have many positive ones.
- Try them out. It’s a lot less stressful in the aftermath of a storm to call a trusted roofer you’ve already used than to just randomly pick a company based on the fact they’re licensed and have good reviews. Your personal experience during a roofing inspection or small roof repair will tell you a lot about how they will perform in the aftermath of a big storm.
