Contractor Experience

Roofing contractors blow in and out of Ottawa like leaves in the wind. They’re here one day and gone the next. This leads to a very real industry reputation of unreliability and unaccountability.

So, it’s crucial to check how long a roofing company has been an established and practicing business. Not only does the length of time show a contractor has appropriate roofing knowledge and hands-on experience, but it also shows they know how to run a solid business.

And this lets you know that they will still be around should you need additional work done on your roof.

Five years of solid roofing experience is good.

Ten years is great.

15+ years is excellent.

The longer a roofing company has been in business, the more likely they are to have a firm understanding of their craft AND know how to respect and value their customers.

Customer Reviews

…And speaking of customer approval – it’s paramount that your potential roofing contractor has ample positive customer reviews.

Online reviews are one of the quickest and easiest ways to filter through contractor possibilities. Hearing and learning from past customers is a surefire way to see how a company REALLY operates and delivers on its promise.

And if a past customer is unsatisfied, reading how the company responds is an excellent way to see how they take accountability. So, look for five-star reviews, but ALSO look for those possible one or two-star reviews – they may speak volumes.

Informative Website

In today’s modern era, there is no excuse for an established, serious roofing company not to invest in themselves with a great website. We’re not saying it needs to be a lavish and over-the-top site (trying to dazzle you with pretty pictures instead of actual facts might be a red flag in itself).

Instead, look for an informative website that tells you their qualifications, which products they use, and what their installation process is like. Also, look for manufacturer certifications, industry awards, and other valuable resources that show you they mean business.

A trustworthy roofer has nothing to hide and everything to gain from a transparent and helpful website.
