Once you decide you want a metal roof, you have one more important task: finding the right metal roofing contractors. But how do you ensure you choose the best fit for you and your home? The best way to start your search is to ask for referrals. Friends and neighbors won’t be shy about sharing information if they have metal roofing contractors they love. Most people are equally open about sharing who they would not recommend. Either way, you still have to do your due diligence, but it’s a great place to start.
Looking on the internet is another great way to search. Type in terms like “metal roofing contractors near me” or “metal roofing installation.” Many options will pop up, and you can dive into customer reviews and testimonials and take a peek at contractors’ websites or social media. Narrow your choices to your top two to three choices and reach out to them. Ask them questions such as:
- How long have you been installing metal roofing?
- How many installations have you done?
- What materials do you use?
- What kind of training does your crew have?
- Is there a warranty on labor or just materials?
- Do you have references who I can contact?
If the metal roofing contractors give you references, you can reach out to a few from each to get a feel for their work ethic and how the final product turned out. You can also check their license with the state and check up on their insurance. Once you are satisfied, ask the metal roofing contractors for an estimate. Multiple quotes will allow you to compare and find the best option for your budget.
