How To Find The Right Roofing Contractor
Just like anything in life, you get what you pay for. If you are presented with 3 options, one being cheap, one being moderately priced and one being expensive, all have pros and cons. If you go cheap, you run the risk of receiving a product with a shorter lifespan. If you go with the expensive option, you might end up blowing your budget and ending up with another issue altogether. Let’s say all 3 options are priced the same. Then what do you do? Perhaps you go online and read reviews about each product to hear what others have to say about each and then you make your decision based on the experience of someone else. When looking for the right roofing contractor, you are in a similar predicament. Carolina Custom Contractors is here to provide a few things to look for when you are in need of a new roof.
Just because someone has been doing something for a longer period of time, doesn’t always mean they are better it. By the same token, a business that has been out in the field for 20 years as opposed to 4 or 5, they have worked on many more jobs and have seen many more things. That experience is something that cannot be taught. Carolina Custom Contractors has been serving the Grand Strand for over 30 years, so yeah, we’ve seen a few things!
Free Consultations / Estimates
A lot of roofing contractors provide free estimates, but there are just as many who nickel and dime their customers as much as possible. Sure, time is money, but why should a (potential) customer be charged for you to figure out exactly what needs to be done? We have always and will always provide our customers with a free estimate.
There are plenty of handyman companies here in Myrtle Beach that will take on any job at your home, including roofing repairs. But do you really want someone who is a jack of all trades but a master of none working on the most important element of your home? Check to see what certifications they have been awarded. This knowledge will either boost or deflate your confidence in them. As a GAF-Certified Roofer, we are able to use GAF-Certified materials to ensure the job is done right the first time.
Reviews / Testimonials
Before doing business with ANY company, you should do your research. Begin with Google, HomeAdvisor, Facebook, basically anywhere customers can leave reviews. Read the 5 star reviews, 1 star reviews and everything in between. It’s pretty easy to spot the good companies, the bad ones and customers who simply cannot be pleased. Use your own judgement to decide which company you feel could be the best fit for you.
