Let’s face it, hiring and working with a roofing contractor can be more than a little overwhelming. There are so many details involved in making sure that you are getting the most for your money and it can be easy for contractors to take advantage of stressed homeowners. In any job of this size, the cost is a major consideration, but this isn’t just any job because your roof is all about protecting your family. So you need to make sure that you approach working with a contractor the right way.
Remember that the quality of the work done to your roof will not only impact your living conditions now but also the resale value of your home in years to come, so you should never take it lightly. That’s why it’s so important to be an educated consumer, which means comparison shopping so that you know you’re hiring the right person for the job.
Obviously, the location will be a big factor. You need a company that works locally to you for convenience sake, but there are other things to take into consideration as well. Here are a few handy tips to bear in mind:

Of course, the best way to judge the performance of any roofing contractor is by talking to previous customers. That’s another advantage of using a local company; it makes it easier for you to see examples of their work for yourself. At the same time, you should look not only at the references provided by the contractor but also get reactions directly from the customers themselves to find out what the experience of working with them is really like.

James and Chad were excellent to work with!...service doesn't get any better. We had a re-roof, new gutters and new skylight. All done in a very professional manner and quality result! I would highly recommend De Palma Construction!
The roof looks great. Good job. Clean up was good around the grounds. Big mess inside to clean up but that's to be expected. Also , noticed a few scratches on the siding. But it OK. Thank you , Caroline Hoffman
