5 Things To Consider Before Choosing a Roofer

How to Choose a Great Roofer

A high-quality roof is a vital component of every house. Not only does it keep out the heat during summer and the rain during winter, it also adds to the value of your home and it’s curb appeal. Replacing, repairing, or restoring a roof is a significant undertaking, so you need a roof repair company that knows exactly what they’re doing.

If you’re looking for the best roofer in Melbourne, the following tips are a great place to start.

Choose an experienced roofing company

Why risk inexperienced contractors when you can hire a company with years of experience and hundreds of projects under their belt? Roof repair and restoration projects can be very complex and time-consuming. Whether you’re just fixing damage to your roof or replacing your entire roof, an experienced roofing company can provide you with better warranties, faster turnarounds and peace of mind.

Look at their past work and customer reviews

When choosing a roofer, it makes sense to look at their gallery section to see their past projects. It also makes sense to check out places like Google and ProductReview.com.au to see if the company has a significant amount of 5-star reviews from previous customers. If you can’t find any reviews online, you should consider it a red flag that the company may not have much experience and the last thing you want is a roofer that’s still learning the ropes working on your roof.

Make sure they have the proper qualifications

Roofing contractors must be fully licensed and insured before they can perform a roofing job valued at more than $5,000. You need to accumulate extensive experience and pass an industry exam to get a roofing specialist licence.

Along with a licence, roofers should:

  • Produce at least three references
  • Provide an accurate quote
  • Be bonded
  • Possess liability insurance

Enquire about warranties

The ideal roofing company will provide you with an extensive warranty on both their workmanship and materials. Make sure they provide you with a great set of warranties and preferably that they’ve been around for at least 10 years, because if they’ve only been around for a couple of years then if you need to make a warranty claim in 7-10 years they may not be their anymore. Top Glaze has been around for over 35 years and we’re not going anywhere. Best of all, we offer an unbeatable 10-year warranty on both products and workmanship on all roof repair and roof restoration work.

Make sure they will treat your property like it was their own.

Some contractors only care about getting the job done and are happy to make a mess and leave an absolute mess behind once they’re done. Unfortunately, this is pretty normal in the industry, when you’re looking at their online reviews see what their lower rated reviews have to say. Watch out for roofing companies that just do the bare minimum (fixing your roof) but leave an absolute mess behind.
