How to Choose the Right Roofing Business: 6 Things to Consider

People often refer to having a home as having a “roof over their head” — because when we think of a home, we think of shelter, protection from the elements, and safety for our loved ones and belongings: all the things that a roof provides. 

So a roof is a vital part of your home, and getting a new roof installed is a big decision! Entrusting the job to a reputable, reliable roofing business is crucial. But how can you tell who’s reputable and reliable? Here are six factors to consider: 

1. Reputation and Reviews

Before choosing a roofing company, do some research into their reputation. What are their past customers saying about their customer service and the quality of their work? The company may have reviews on their website, but you can also look on platforms like Facebook, Yelp, and Google.

In addition, you should look into what the Better Business Bureau has to say about a company: At Amish Roofers, we’re very proud of our excellent customer reviews and our A+ Better Business Bureau rating. Our commitment to top-quality work is reflected in how our customers talk about us! 

2. Warranties and Quality Assurance

A reputable roofing business will stand behind its work with comprehensive guarantees. So before hiring a company, inquire about the warranties they offer (for both materials and labor). Amish Roofers’ promise is that we have the best quality and best price you can find in Southern Indiana. We are certified through GAF and can offer a 50-year warranty on asphalt shingle roofs, and we stand by our estimates: no hidden costs and no extra work. (Most of our residential projects are finished within one day, and we’ll leave the site cleaner than when we found it!)

3. Free, No-Obligation Consultations and Estimates

When you’re dealing with any contractor, you should expect transparent pricing and honest, direct communication from the start. Look for roofing companies that offer free, no-obligation consultations and estimates. Any company you work with should be committed to understanding your roofing needs in detail; offering solid, well-explained advice; and providing clear price and scope-of-work estimates. 

And Amish Roofers not only provides free consultations — we can also help you with financing your new roof with a great rate from Service Finance Company. 

4. Local Expertise and Familiarity

It’s smart to choose a roofing company that’s familiar with your region's climate, building codes, and architectural styles. We’re proud of our deep roots in Southern Indiana and the roofs we’ve installed in North Vernon, Seymour, Brownstown, Bedford, Vallonia, Bloomington, Brown County, and throughout the region! Local contractors understand the unique challenges and requirements specific to your area, ensuring that your roofing system is designed to withstand local weather conditions.

You should also make sure that the roofing company you choose has worked on your particular type of structure before — at Amish Roofers, we have experience with jobs of just about any size: residential, business, and farm structures! 

5. Licensing and Insurance

Verify that the roofing company is properly licensed and insured, to protect yourself from liability in the unlikely event of an accident or property damage happening in the course of your roof being installed. A legitimate business should be able to provide proof of licensing and adequate insurance coverage for their workers and your property. 

6. Material Options

Consider the range of roofing materials (and roofing colors!) the company has to offer. Your home is unique, and companies like Amish Roofers can give you material options (for instance, asphalt shingles or metal) and explain their pros and cons.  

The Last Word on Choosing a Roofing Company

Your new roof should last for decades — so choosing the right installer is a big decision! With a long history of excellent work, a sterling reputation, a commitment to customer satisfaction, no-obligation consultations, and more, Amish Roofers is a clear choice in Southern Indiana!
