The best way to find a contractor is to design a checklist that helps you determine what you are looking for. Building trust begins with looking at how well a company fits your needs. Consider these 10 things you should look for in your roofing contractor, before you schedule your next roofing project.

Experience

Longevity in the industry is important. You want to know that your roofing contractor has seen (and fixed) problems like yours. At GoTo Roofing, our team of experts have over 30 years experience in the roofing field. To date, there hasn’t been a problem we’ve come across that we couldn’t fix.

 Up-to-Date Knowledge

It is important to discuss with your roofing contractor how often they take seminars. Current education and certifications are required to maintain buildings with code compliant roofs. The contractors at GoTo Roofing attend conferences and learning series to ensure we remain compliant with all state requirements, as well as, up-to-date on all cutting-edge products and technology pertinent to roofing, windows, and siding.

Care

Roofing contractors should take each job personally. They should treat each replacement or repair as if they are caring for their own roof.

Active Owners

There are several advantages to working with a business that is run by a family. You get to meet the owners and understand their priorities. You also know that the owners put their heart into the business. Every job that GoTo Roofing does passes through the hands of owners, Mario and Scott. Every roof, window, and siding project is unique, and both ensure that they are well aware of the intricacies of each job.

Environmentally Friendly

It is important to search for a roofing contractor that is environmentally friendly. A company that recycles its materials can really make a difference on environmental impact. GoTo Roofing recycles more than 10,000 tons of material each year.

Certifications & Expertise

You may go as far as to request information about the contractor’s certifications and education to ensure that you are working with somebody who has the expertise necessary to repair your roof.

Online Reviews

Take time to read online reviews. A good way to know that you are hiring a trustworthy company is to read about other people’s experiences. GoTo Roofing has a 5 star rating on Home Advisor, Facebook, Yelp, and Google!

Customer Satisfaction

Word of mouth still matters. Talk to friends, family and neighbors who have had roofing work done to see if there is a company they would recommend. A large percentage of our customers are referred to us by previous customers who are extremely satisfied with the work and service that GoTo Roofing provides.

Warranty Options

What would you do if the roof repair or replacement didn’t work out the way you planned? Make sure there is a warranty plan to protect your wallet from further damage. GoTo Roofing offers a No-Leak Guarantee on the work we provide.

Proper Insurance

It is extremely important for you as a homeowner to ensure that any contractor you hire has the proper insurance and liability coverage to protect you and themselves.

Roofing contractors can help you manage your repairs with ease, if you choose wisely. Don’t waste time working with companies who don’t fulfill your needs.
