How To Pick The Right Roofing Company

Your roof is one of the most essential and vital components of your house. Leaks in your roof can cause significant structural damages that can cost many thousands of dollars to repair. The repair on the roof can run well over one thousand dollars, and the cost to repair the damage that a leak caused can be massive.

Even more costly, though, is having your repair done by a roofing company that doesn’t have the experience necessary in roof repairs. Picking the wrong roofer can not only ensure that you, as the homeowner, are out the cost of the repairs themselves, but you’ll also be out all the money needed to repair the subsequent damage.

If you’re looking for the right roofing company in Charleston, SC, here are five aspects you’ll want to consider.

Check For Proper Licensing

Every roofer in Carolina should have the licenses necessary to perform work. These licenses serve two purposes. First, they mean that the people performing the repairs have the skill set required, in theory, to complete the job successfully. Secondly, they are also necessary for the company to acquire insurance and other things needed to complete the job safely.

For example, at Big Bear Roofing, we have both a GAF certified roofer license and an SC license. We display both of these numbers prominently on our website so you can have confidence that the services you receive comply with all necessary state and local laws.

Accredited With The BBB

Quality businesses will register with the BBB and not be afraid to let you see their ratings. This concept holds not just with the BBB but with other review sites as well. Good roofing companies will welcome feedback because they will know that most of it will be positive. Businesses that don’t want you to understand what previous clients have to say about them are the ones that usually have something to hide.

Again, at Big Bear Roofing, we link to our BBB accreditation so that way people can see it and learn more about us. We’re happy to have customers review our business because we know that we’ll ensure that all customers are pleased with our services.

Works With You For Your Insurance Claim, But Doesn’t Do It For You.

Some roofing companies will wrongly say that they can perform insurance magic. For example, they may say that they can file your claim not to pay a deductible. Or they might say that they will handle your request to the insurance company for you.

Neither of those is possible. If the company performs those actions, it may violate federal or state law.

Big Bear will meet with your insurance adjuster and help guide you through the process, but we cannot handle the claim on your behalf. However, we do have lots of experience dealing with insurance companies, and our involvement can help you ensure that your request doesn’t become stuck in the process or even outright denied. And yes, you will have to pay your deductible. The good news is that for most storm damage, your rates won’t increase!

Empowers You To Make A Decision

Too much pressure is a bad sign when it comes to choosing roofing companies. If a company turns up the heat to get you to commit to a significant repair, then you should run. You want to feel like you can make an informed decision about what roof repairs you need. Repairing a roof can easily be a significant investment, and you should feel free to evaluate it accordingly.

Our roofing company will happily send some roofers to your house to inspect your roof and let you know what repairs you need. We’ll provide you with an estimate that you are free to take or decline. Our prices and financing options are highly competitive (plus we have stellar ratings), so we’re hopeful that you will choose us for your roofing needs!

Offers An Extensive Warranty

The roof repairs you make will be an investment that should last many years. Excellent quality roofing doesn’t “go bad” overnight. A good roof can last ten years or more before you need any more repairs. If your roofing company has confidence in their work, they’ll also offer an extensive extended warranty!

Extended warranties quickly become expensive if companies do not perform quality jobs. If a business has to do each job twice (once the wrong way and once the right way, for free, because the person had the warranty), they would quickly find themselves in trouble. That means that companies that offer an extensive warranty must do the job the right way the first time!

Big Bear offers a lifetime warranty on all roof repairs and roof replacements. You can’t get any longer than a lifetime warranty! We’re incredibly confident in our roofers’ skills that we’re willing to back our work for an incredibly long time.
