5 Questions To Help Find the Best Roofing Contractor
We get it. Finding the best roofing contractor for your roof repair or roof replacement is stressful. In fact, according to the BBB, contractors rank #1 for complaints from consumers. That’s why MidSouth Construction Roofing and General Contracting is so proud of their A+ ranking with the Nashville BBB. We take customer service and workmanship seriously! We understand that nothing is more frustrating than hiring a roofing contractor who doesn’t show up, does inferior work, doesn’t stand behind their warranty or worst of all – takes your money and runs! Here are 5 questions to help find the best roofing contractor for your next roofing project!
When you need to hire a good roofing contractor, there is obviously a real need for either a roof repair or roof replacement. You need a roofing company that you can trust with your home and your money! It is so important to hire a roofer that has a solid reputation that will stand behind their work and be here for the long haul! So, before you sign that contract, take a little time to research to find the best roofing contractor for your specific roofing project!
Research Your Roofer!
Are They Licensed?
Spend a little time to research your roofer and you will save yourself a lot of time in the end! There are a lot of ways to research roofing contractors but always start with verifying their license as a Roofing Contractor or General Contractor licensed with the State of TN. Never trust someone to install your roof who does not hold a BD21 Roofing Contractor License or General Contractors License. Just because someone holds themselves out to be a “roofer” doesn’t mean they are qualified or licensed to do the job! Your roof is typically the largest single repair item in your home. Never trust having this item repaired or replaced by someone who is not properly licensed – and some are not licensed in any capacity!
Are They Insured?
Next, verify that they have both General Liability and Workers Comp insurance! If the roofing company you are considering does not have full insurance coverage for both General Liability and Workers Comp, then you would be best served to move on to another roofer! We cannot stress enough how important it is to hire a General Contractor that is adequately and properly insured! We all know that accidents happen! Make sure that if your roofing contractor has an accident that causes damage to your home, that you are insured with THEIR general liability insurance! You also want to make sure they carry worker comp insurance to protect you from injuries that might occur on your property!
Do They Have Good Reviews?
Finally, look at their online reviews! Reviews can be found on Google, Yelp, Facebook, BBB, GuildQuality, Porch and even a few other smaller platforms! MidSouth Construction is proud to be the top-rated roofing company in Nashville and maintains an A+ rating with the BBB! We take great pride in providing exceptional customer service and it shows in our online reviews. We even hire a private third-party company, Guild Quality, to conduct surveys with our customers after their project is complete. We take this feedback and use it to improve our customer service and procedures moving forward! Keep in mind, that no one can please everyone! But overall, how is their overall feedback from customers and does the company respond to reviews in a professional manner. Are negative reviews responded to as well?
Do They Install Per Current Building Codes?
Never assume that the roofing company you are about to hire will install your new roof the way you think it will be installed! As a certified Master Elite Roofing Contractor, MidSouth Construction must meet the highest standards in the roofing industry. Make sure that your old roof will be removed down to the original decking and the new roof installed per current building codes! Be very clear about the type of shingles to be installed and the color! Will they install ice and water in the valleys and drip edge on the perimeter? Will they inspect the existing decking and make sure any existing rot or water damage is corrected before installing the new roof? These are all important questions to ask to ensure your new roof will meet your expectations!
What Is Their Warranty?
MidSouth Construction is a certified Master Elite Roofing Contractor! Only Master Elite Roofing companies can offer the GAF Silverpledge and Goldenpledge warranties! Not only is your roof backed by our solid five-year workmanship warranty – it is backed by the national power of GAF Roofing Manufacturers! When you hire MidSouth Construction you can have confidence that we will be here for the long haul and have been vetted by the leading roofing manufacturer in the nation! And, if we were to ever close our doors – your Goldenpledge Warranty roof is still covered in full by GAF Roofing! Why hire anyone less to install your new roof when you can hire the absolute best!
