Your roof is a major factor in the safety and stability of your home, so it’s essential to choose a quality contractor for any roofing project. But with so many roofers out there, how can you be sure you're picking the right one? To help you make an informed decision, here are six tips to consider when choosing a roofing contractor.

1. Ask for referrals and read reviews.
A great place to start is by talking to family, friends, and neighbors about their experiences with roofing companies. Additionally, take some time to read online reviews from impartial sources like Google reviews and Yelp.

2. Talk to local roofing contractors.
Get at least three estimates for your project but be wary of bids that are too high or too low. Evaluate how comfortable you feel communicating your needs and budget with each contractor.

3. Look for the right documentation.
Verify that the contractor is licensed and fully insured with up-to-date worker’s compensation and liability coverage. Special certifications, such as Pinnacle Roofing's SELECT ShingleMaster, demonstrate the roofer's commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.

4. Evaluate the quality of the roofing materials.
Comparing the features and benefits of different roofing materials is important to protect your investment. Pinnacle Roofing builds residential roofs with high quality materials, such as the innovative, durable, and superior performance of Landmark by CertainTeed.

5. Check warranty programs.
Make sure you’re receiving the best warranty available, such as CertainTeed's extended material and labor warranty, which is transferable to a home buyer should you decide to sell.

6. Ask for homeowner references.
Request a list of homeowner references from the contractor and call them to verify the quality of their work. This will give you the peace of mind that you’ve chosen the best contractor for your roofing needs.
