Question DetailsAsked on 5/25/2012

I need to get a few estimates on a roof replacement. Who should I contact? Is this list a waste of time if it doesn't help know who to ask?

With over 100 roofers with A ratings, how do I tell which I should contact?

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

If you were to contact a roofing contractor through Angies List, ideally you would only contact those roofers IN YOUR AREA who have excellent ratings from customers whom have hired said roofing contractor. Read the reviews, don't just look at their A rating. Look where they are physically located, generally you will get better service the closer they area physically located.

In addition, I would contact 2 contractors who seem like they have a service you require. Some roofers specialize in low slope, some in steep slope, some don't specialize in anything and roofing is just another one of the many services they offer (like gutters, siding, windows, general contractors for example). Spend an hour or two if necessary, research the companies before you contact them. Check elsewhere like Google or Yahoo Local. Check Yelp. Check the BBB. Make sure they have good reviews elsewhere besides just Angies List.

Once you find a couple companies you feel like you can TRUST, call them, meet with them. Research your roofing system before you meet with them (my website has alot of info in regards to roofing assemblies) Ask them as many questions as you can think of. Challenge them. Try to trip them up. Make sure they really understand what you want. Maker sure you understand what they are offering. Get into the nuts and bolts of the roofing assembly. What exactly is being done, and WHY is it being done that way?
