dreamstime_xxl_96035825 (1)

Roofing contractors seem to be a dime a dozen in Northern Colorado. If you’re searching for residential roofing in Loveland, dozens of options pop up. 

However, not all roofing companies are created equal. So how do you know which one you can trust to get the job done right the first time at fair, competitive prices?

When you’re looking for a roofer, you want one that’s professional, reliable, and will keep all the commitments they make. Nothing short of this could even be considered an adequate level of customer service. 

Qualities Of A Reliable Roofing Contractor

At Schultz Roofing & Repair, we want you to be equipped with the tools you need to find the right roofing company for your needs — even if that isn’t us. Below you’ll find five questions you’ll want to ask yourself before deciding on a roofing contractor.

Do They Provide Written Estimates?

A trustworthy roofing company will provide you with written estimates that detail exactly what you’ll need for your roof replacement or repair. Without a written quote, you have nothing to hold your roofing company to when they decide to take on extra fees after a job is done. At Schultz, we give full written estimates with your free roof inspection.

What Is Their Level Of Experience And Craftsmanship?

Another question to ask yourself is how much experience a company has and how does that translate into the work they produce. A roofing company that has more experience — at Schultz we have over 30 years — has had time to improve and refine their craft. More than that, they’ve had time to prove their results. 

Do They Use High-Quality Materials?

Your roof protects you from a wide range of weather conditions. From wind to rain to snow and hail, your roof takes a beating over the course of time. When you use strong and sturdy materials, your roof will have a much higher chance of withstanding the abuse and can easily last you decades. 

Good craftsmanship only gets you so far if you’re using shoddy materials. A roof that’s comprised of top-quality materials will withstand the test of time. 

What Is Their Reputation Online And In The Community?

This question has everything to do with the two questions asked above. A roofing company that has proven themselves over the course of time, five positive Google reviews can hardly be called “proven,” will have a good name in the community. Since they have a reputation to uphold, they will stay in communication and work with you to ensure all your needs are met.

So check online reviews, ask your friends who they’ve worked with, or talk to your HOA and see if they know of any recommended roofers — more than that, ask them who you should stay away from. After all, news of bad service spreads a lot quicker than news of good service

How Strong Are Their Warranties?

When it comes to warranties there are two types: manufacturers and workmanship. While most manufacturers offer warranties on their products (never assume, always ask!) a top-quality roofing company will also back up their workmanship.

At Schultz, we guarantee our workmanship with a one-year warranty. This means if you have any workmanship issues within the first year, we will fix it for free.
