Myrtle Beach Roofing: Choosing The Right Roofing Contractor

January 18, 2018

When choosing a Myrtle Beach roofing company, Charleston siding company or even a Wilmington decking company, you want to make sure that the contractor you hire is going to not only get the job done, but get it done right the first time within budget. Before you select someone to improve the exterior of your home, you may want to ask them a few questions to familiarize yourself with who they are and what they can do for you not only now, but also in the future.

How long have you been in business?

It’s important to know how long your contractor has been in business as well as how long they have personally been doing the services provided. For instance, Contract Exteriors was established in 2009, but co-owner Randy Haan brought over 10 years of experience with him before forming the company in Myrtle Beach. The longer a company has been in business, the more experience they have in dealing with all sorts of different homes and scenarios. If you have a unique situation that needs attention, there’s a better chance that someone that has been in business for an extensive period of time will be able to come up with a better solution.

Why did Tom give you a 1 star review on Google?

As we all know, there are always two sides to every story. We all use Google and we all read reviews on local companies before doing business with them. Anyone’s brother, mother or friend can leave a 5 star review, but the 1, 2, 3 and 4 star reviews are the ones that can make or break a business. It’s also important to see how a business responds to these reviews. If a contractor has one 1 star review and fifteen 5 star reviews, then ask them about it. That way you can see both sides of it and make a judgement call. Chances are that individual either wanted to bash that roofing contractor, is a competitor or could not be pleased. It happens!

Are you fully licensed and insured?

This is an absolute must. You should never work with a contractor who won’t show you proof of insurance and proper licensing. Luckily for you, Contract Exteriors is happy to provide these at any time. As a full exterior remodeling company, we are also a licensed general contractor.

What types of accreditations do you have?

Local Chamber of Commerce chapters and the Better Business Bureau are both great associations to belong to. It’s important to know if the company you are dealing with is not only insured and licensed, but also trustworthy. There are plenty of contractors out there who do the job as quickly as possible and leave without thinking twice or double checking their work. Contract Exteriors is a member of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, National Roofing Contractors Association and the National Association of Decking and Railing Association. In addition, we are backed by many well-known manufacturers.

Contract Exteriors is a roofing, siding, decking, window replacement and door replacement company that services the Carolina from Hilton Head, South Carolina to Raleigh, North Carolina.
