You look at your home’s roof (safely, from the ground) and finally decide: that’s it, my roof needs help! But how do I get a roofing contractor who won’t disappear after the down payment, or whose work won’t slide off my roof two weeks after the check has cleared? How do Texas homeowners lock in reliable, top-quality roofing work?
If your best friend likes a movie or a restaurant, you are more inclined to give it a try, right? Well, the same thing is true of roofers. Good reviews from satisfied customers can help you decide if a particular roofer is right for your project.
Suppose you had two reviews for two different roofers to choose from:
- Wow, unbelievable service. You went above and beyond today in coming out between rain showers and taking care of my roof. I can’t say enough of how professional you treated us. I am a customer for life and if anyone is looking for a roofing company look no further!
- Homeowner beware! These roofing guys showed up late, left trash in my yard, missed installing a section of drip edge, and didn’t even seem to know each other.
Take your time. Which company would you ask to bid on your home project, #1 or #2? The review for #1, by the way, is from an actual customer of Texas Traditions Roofing, and we are mighty proud of it.
A good roofing company treats prospective customers and long-time clients well, from first telephone call to final inspection. A good, local roofer will communicate clearly, behave professionally, and fulfill every promise.
With a good roofer, the scope of work described in a roofing estimate is detailed, precise, and exactly what gets done.
Smart business people build strong roots in their community. They value what customers say about them, and they make good connections to other businesses. A superior residential roofer should:
- Give back to the community through charitable support, financial help, and time on important community projects
- Go above and beyond in customer service
- Provide competitive, fair and honest pricing
- Show a level of caring unmatched by competitors
- Have all required licenses, permitting, insurance, and protections for you
- Maintain vital networks to manufacturers and industry leaders like the Roofing Contractors Association of Texas (RCAT) and the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA)
Some contractors work only with the great names in roofing materials: GAF, CertainTeed, Owens Corning, Sheffield Metals and DaVinci. Texas Traditions Roofing, for example, is a GAF Master Elite Roofer and a CertainTeed Select Shinglemaster roofer.
When you solicit three bids on your home’s roof replacement, major repair, or ongoing roof maintenance, make sure each contractor meets the highest standards for professionalism, knowledge, and customer service.
Say you have a choice of bankers. Banker Brad rides around in his pickup truck and promises to keep your money in the bed of the truck. Banker Bob asks you to come down to his building, at such-and-such address, to deposit your money in his safe. Which banker are you going to go with? (Psst — Banker Bob.)
Yet many people will hire a roofer with no local address. You might as well toss your cash into the roofer’s panel truck and watch it disappear. Hire a local, dependable roofer. They know your area, work with your neighbors and friends, and establish strong ties to the community.
Take Texas Traditions Roofing, for example. Our contracting service began when three family members opted to go to work in our community, helping out neighbors in need. We have a local address, serve 10 communities around Georgetown, and provide great customer service.
We are proud to give back to our community through projects like Community Restore, the Wounded Warrior Project, and Compassion International. Try asking that of a storm-chaser, or a roofer who hires day laborers out of the local home repair store’s parking lot.
We are not about to up and hit the road, either. Our company founders have more than 40 years of construction experience. Our crews know how to install, repair, and maintain residential roofs. We welcome visitors to our headquarters at 605 River Bend Drive, Suite 105 in Georgetown.
Why a local roofer?
When you have a question or problem, you can go to a physical address, if needed, and get the kind of service you expect. When your roofer’s contact information is scrawled on a bar napkin, do you really expect anyone to answer the telephone? Go with a local pro, someone you can get to know.
