The roof is the most important part of your home. It not only protects you and your possessions against weather and invasion, it literally supports the very structure of the house itself, shoring its walls so that they don’t fall down around you. To protect the integrity of any roof, then, it’s imperative that you choose a quality roofing company when it comes time for replacement or repair. Here’s what you should look for when searching for a quality roofing company: 


A quality roofing company will have years — usually decades — of experience, using their time in the business to learn, practice, and improve upon their roofing skills. Too often independent contractors will advertise their services only to skip out on clients if/when challenges arise. The reputation of a well-established and well-known roofing company, however, provides protection against being left high and dry should problems occur. Put plainly, established companies possess more of the resources needed to get the job done in an appropriate and timely manner and they rely more on the value of their good name, meaning customers — more often than not — receive a higher level of service.

Licensing and Insurance

Many states don’t require a roofing contractor to be licensed or carry insurance. And even if they do, some contractors don’t. Regardless of the laws in your specific state, always look for a roofing company that is licensed and fully insured. And always ask for proof. Working with an individual or company that is not properly licensed and insured exposes you to unnecessary risks that often come with substantial costs. For example, if you hire someone to work on your roof and he or she (or a crew member) falls or gets injured in some way, you will be responsible for the medical bills and any ensuing worker’s compensation!


A quality roofing company will have no problem providing potential customers with references. Talk to past clients. Examine their roofs. Pick a company that offers the service, product, and overall experience you want and deserve.


In many instances, manufacturers require a roofing company to be a preferred partner or authorized installer in order for their products to be offered with a warranty. If you want to use a particular product, make sure that the roofing company you pick has a relationship with its manufacturer and is able to guarantee any available warranty.


A quality roofing company will document the specifics of your roofing job, especially the details of its financing. Ask for a contract and be sure it covers how and when you will pay for all services. Is there a plan for addressing possible dissatisfaction during any part of the installation process? What about unforeseen problems? At Alpha Elite Roofing, for example, we don’t ask for any money until the customer is completely satisfied!
