Here Are Our Top 5 Tips When Hiring a Roofing Company


The roofing process can be daunting, however, if you go through these categories, the process can be very smooth and you’ll end up feeling great about your roofing experience.  The Peach State Roofing teams’ goal is that you feel confident throughout the entire experience, so we’ve created this list of 5 things you should consider when deciding on a roofing company. 

  1. Insurance

Insurance is essential for an industry that is as high risk as roofing.  It is important to make sure the roofing company you hire carries both workers compensation and general liability.  It may be arduous, but call and confirm that the insurance is current and valid for roofing. At Peach State Roofing, we go beyond and provide copies of our insurance documentation in your sales proposal estimate. A professional and respectable roofing company will be beyond reproach and provide professional documentation of their legitimacy. 

  1. Local

Choosing a local Athens or Savannah roofing company within your community can have many advantages.  Along with needing to uphold their reputation within their community, hiring a local roofing company can save you time and be more convenient. For one, if you ever need a representative to come  to your home, you will not have to wait until they have an opening several weeks or even months down the road.

A roofing company firmly planted with roots in Athens and Savannah, GA will ensure home and business owners that they will always have a local roofing contractor to contact when questions or issues arise. A local roofing contractor not only invests in their customers, they’re fully invested in their communities! Peach State Roofing is always a phone call away to serve our friends and neighbors in the greater Athens and Savannah communities. 

  1. Reviews

Most people check reviews before purchasing a product or hiring a service, and the same should definitely hold true for your roof replacement.  The Athens and Watkinsville, Ga areas are a small and close-knit communities that rely on high-quality home service companies. Online reviews are a great way to check up on the history of a roofing company. Reviews are a wonderful tool to assess the legitimacy of a professional company.

On top of reviews, ask your local roofing company to provide customer referrals.  Speak with real customers and listen to their experience from contact to project completion. It never hurts to ask previous customers about the positive and negative experiences of their roofing project experience. This will help provide you with not only a realistic insight on what to expect, but also highlight what is fundamentally important to you about your home and personal experience.

  1. Communication

Communication has always been important in business, but especially when you’re having your roof replaced.  Presenting a detailed estimate and contract is an essential first step in this decision. After choosing the roofing company, continued updates help give you, the homeowner, peace of mind.  

  1. Materials

There is a saying,“someone can always do it cheaper”, which is especially true in the roofing industry.  Choosing high-quality roof systems and not just “good shingles” is critical. Every manufacturer requires a complete roof system to be installed in a specific way to maintain the warranty.  Make sure the company you hire to replace your roof understands the details of how the materials should be installed on your roof.
