5 Tips for Choosing the Best Professional Roofing Contractor

Trying to find the best professional roofing contractor can feel like trying to find the proverbial needle in a haystack. There are roofers all over Connecticut, and all of them say they are the best in situations where a lot is at stake. But are they really? What separates them from the pack?

Regardless of whether you ultimately choose MJT Roofing, rest assured that we want you to be as educated as possible so that you feel confident in what you do with your next roof replacement.

Look for a local company — When sifting through the seemingly unending list of roofing professionals at your fingertips, narrow your search to a local roofer with longevity in the community. After a storm or during certain times of the year, you may see an influx of roofers trying to earn your business. These are typically out-of-area roofers who won’t be here for long. Stick with someone who is here and plans to be here for a long time. If it helps, consider asking friends and family for referrals.

Get a second quote — Before trusting your roof to just any roofer, you should know all your options. In fact, most roofing professionals recommend at least a second roof quote. The majority even recommend a third roof quote! The cheapest isn’t always the best, though. So ask questions, understand their plan, and get everything in writing.

Seek out the over-communicator — A lot is at stake when it comes to your roof. If you have questions or feel like you’re in the dark when it comes to what you’re contractor is doing, then you’re in trouble. If you can’t get your roofer to call you back or feel like you’re not on the same page, it’s a huge red flag.

Associations with other companies — The really good roofing companies are associated with other reputable general contractors you may have heard of. They may even be on a preferred list with your insurance company. Having an idea of who they’ve worked with in the past can go a long way in giving you peace of mind as you start a project.

Warranties — You should stay away from roofers that don’t warranty their work. It’s as simple as that.
