How to Choose the Right Roofing Contractor

When it comes time for inevitable roofing repairs or an entire roof replacement, you don't want to take the task of finding the right Ottawa roofing contractor for the job lightly. Your roof is the main line of defense between your home and the elements, and you need to make sure that all repairs and installations are done by a trusted roofer such as Sanderson Roofing. 


The right roofing companies in Ottawa can be a residential or commercial roof's best friend, keeping it in tip-top shape for many decades. Home and business owners who have a great relationship with a roofer didn't get it by hiring just anyone. They took their time in choosing an Ottawa roofing contractor, usually starting off by looking up the company with the Better Business Bureau.

The Better Business Bureau can provide you with invaluable insight into the professionalism of a roofing contractor. Make sure you work only with Ottawa roofing companies that have a good score and to stay away from companies which you can't even find listed with the Better Business Bureau. This minor piece of homework ahead of time can save you a lot of time, money, and headaches in the future.

You also want to work with a roofing contractor who has experience in the Ottawa area. Not only will they be familiar with local regulations, but choosing a roofing contractor known to the community is protective against potential scammers. Ask for a contractor's local references and talk to their past local clients before hiring them.

A professional and trustworthy Ottawa roofing contractor will also be able to provide you with a quote and will never ask you to pay upfront for a job. While you may have to pay a deposit, it should never be the total of all repairs. Make sure that you receive a copy of any documents you sign as well.

Roofing companies in Ottawa should be properly insured and registered with the WSIB (Workplace Safety and Insurance Board.) They should also carry proper insurance for all subcontractors and employees. They should be willing and able to provide a copy of their certificates. The right roofing contractor will also be able to provide you with a strong warranty that can cover any potential issues with the workmanship giving you peace of mind.

All roofs eventually sustain damage and need the attention of Ottawa roofing companies. While we wish it was the case not all roofing contractors provide the same quality of work or professionalism. It is important that you take your time in choosing who to work with.
