Signs you’re not talking to a reputable roofing company in Denver

Roof repair can be expensive. Roof replacement will cost you even more. If you’re in a place where you need to have some work done on the top of your home, it’s important to hire a licensed, reputable service provider to ensure the job gets done right.

For this blog post, the experts at Capital Roofing & Restoration wanted to discuss some of the signs that may indicate that the company you’re talking to isn’t legit.

They don’t have an online presence

In today’s fast-paced digital age, every company has a website—in fact, a few weeks ago we came across a Girl Scout troop that had set up an e-commerce website to sell some cookies. If the 9-year-old girl next door is selling cookies online, and the person who wants you to hire them to do a roofing job doesn’t have an online presence, this is a huge red flag.

A legitimate company will be licensed and insured; when a company is licensed, you’ll be able to look them up, online, using their license number. At the very least, a company should have several social media pages including but not limited to Yelp, Facebook and Google+. You should also be able to find them on the BBB website, along with other reputable websites such as Angie’s List and Home Advisor.

They’re going door-to-door to solicit business

A reputable roofer does not spend his or her time going door to door in hopes of drumming up business. In fact, if someone is going through your neighborhood, knocking on doors, there’s a good chance that person is a scam artist. It’s not at all unusual for con artists to make their way through parts of town that have been hit by a recent storm. In some cases, the homeowner will think that having someone ring their doorbell, just when they were about to call a roofer, is an act of good fortune. They couldn’t be more wrong.

There are countless horror stories on the Internet about people who hire these types of solicitors, only to have the person take a deposit and disappear. Or, in some cases, the job is left half done. If the work has been completed, it’s often not done right.

Ultimately, the homeowner will have no other recourse than to hire a local, reputable roofer to fix what wasn’t done properly. This is as time consuming as it is expensive.

They won’t put anything in writing

Lastly, a Denver-based roofing company should be more than willing to provide you with a written estimate. By “written estimate” we mean a legitimate estimate- one that has the company’s name, address and contact info on it, along with a full breakdown of costs related to labor and material. An estimate that’s scrawled on a post-it note doesn’t count. 

In closing

Common Questions People Ask a Colorado Roofing Company

It’s been a while since we’ve posted a FAQ blog, so for this post, we wanted to highlight some of the most commonly asked questions we receive from our clients.

How long will the job take?

This is a bit hard to answer without having more information. If you need simple roof or gutter repair, the work may be completed in a few hours. On the other hand, if you need to reroof your home, that’s going to take longer (for all of the obvious reasons.) In most cases, an average-sized home can be reroofed with asphalt shingles in less than two days. If the home is big, the job may take up to four days to complete.  The best way to get an accurate time estimate for a project is to call us to come out and provide you with a free, no-hassle estimate.

Do I need to plan to be at home when the work is being performed?

You’re certainly welcome to be at home while we’re preforming the work, but it’s certainly not required. If you aren’t going to be home, we will ask you to move any vehicles away from the home (and out of the driveway) to ensure they’re not at risk of being damaged by falling debris. If we’re reroofing your home, you can rest assured that we’ll have a project manager onsite. This will help ensure that things are being done properly.

Do metal roofing systems cost more than a shingle roofing system?

Yes. It’s estimated that a seam metal roofing system could cost as much as three times more than an asphalt shingle roof. However, you’ll want to keep in mind that a standing seam metal roof will last up to three decades. An asphalt shingle roof has a significantly shorter lifespan.

Are you licensed and insured?

Yes. Our company is fully licensed and insured. We’re accredited with the Better Business Bureau and we’ve been screened and approved by Home Advisor. When you work with our company you won’t get any surprises. What you will get, is quality service at a fair and equitable price.

Tips for Vetting a Roofing Company in Denver, CO

Tips for Vetting a Roofing Company in Denver, CO

If you need to hire a roofer to help you with roof repair or roof replacement in or around Denver, Colorado, there are several things you’ll want to keep in mind.  First, you should know that all roofers are not alike and second, the contractor that shows up with the cheapest bid may not be the best choice for the job.

If you’ve never needed to vet a roofer before, you’ll want to be sure to ask the following questions.

How long have you been in business?

Although there’s nothing wrong with hiring a new company, newer companies don’t have a researchable track record. When you work with a service provider that has been working on homes for five or more years, they should have a long list of client testimonials that you can read through. The more information you can get on a company, including the level of customer service they provide and the quality of the work they do, the better.

Have you completed jobs like mine in the past?

If you need help repairing or replacing an asphalt shingle roof, this is something that all Denver roofers should be able to help you with. On the other hand, if you need help installing or repairing metal roofing, rubber roofing or Spanish tile roofing, you’ll want to make sure you hire a company who has experience in helping clients with these types of projects. If they don’t have prior experience in working with the type of material you want to have installed, you’ll want to move on. Your roof is one of the most important and valuable components of your home. It’s important to hire a roofer who knows how to get the job done right.

Can you give me a written estimate?

When you receive an estimate, you’ll want to make sure it includes several things. Each estimate should include a breakdown of costs for labor and materials. The estimate should also include the business address, phone number and website. If Joe Smith roofer gives you an estimate that’s scribbled on a piece of notebook paper, there’s a good chance he’s not licensed or insured. If you have questions about the dangers associated with hiring an unlicensed / uninsured contractor, we’d encourage you to do a google search using the search terms “unlicensed roofer horror stories.”

Four key questions you should ask a roofer in Denver, CO before you hire them

If you’ve stumbled across our blog it’s likely that you’re either in need of some immediate roof repair, or you may be doing some fact-finding because you think you might need to replace your roof this spring.

Hiring a roofing company can be as stressful as it is inconvenient. Yes, we understand the idea that you’ll need to get several estimates is going to be time consuming, but this really will allow you to make the best and most informed decision.

If you’re about to start having companies come to your home, you’ll want to ask them the following four questions.

How experienced are you with using X material?

Just because a roofer is experienced with asphalt shingle roofs that’s not to say they’re great with tile roofing systems or rubber roofing systems. Ask if they have experience in working with the types of materials that will need to be used on your home.

From there, you’ll want to ask them for several local references, who have roofing systems that are similar to yours. When you call, ask if they’re satisfied with the work that was done on their homes, whether the company was professional and courteous and if the job was done on time and on budget.

Ask about subcontractors

Working with subcontractors is like diving into a mystery box of chocolates—you never know what you’re going to get. It’s always best to work with a company that uses their own people.

Ask how long they’ve been in business

A company that has a proven track record of getting jobs done correctly will have a proven history of success. If a company has been around for a long time, and their prior clients have lots of positive things to say about the services this company renders, you can rest assured you’ll be in good hands if you hire them. On the other hand, if you hire Jack Smith Roofing Company that has only been open for two months, you may be playing roofing roulette.

Most importantly, be sure to ask if they are licensed and insured

If you’re going to hire a roofer, you’ll want to hire a company that’s been reviewed on several online forums, including places like Yelp, Angie’s List, Home Advisor, Google+ and/or Facebook. Check to see if they’re accredited with the Better Business Bureau.

If the company doesn’t have much of an online presence, or you can’t seem to find them anywhere on the Internet, this is a huge red flag. A licensed, insured and reputable roofer will have a brick-and-mortar location, a website and an online presence.
