This is What Happens When Your Roofer isn’t Local

There are several different roofing companies out there seeking your business. While we urge you to take a deep dive into the reputation of any roofer you consider, we also encourage choosing a local roofing contractor.

Hiring a local roofer may be in your best interest. While it’s true you can find plenty of roofers who are experienced and reputable from out of town (or out of state), when it comes down to choosing between a roofer who’s local and a roofer who isn’t, we recommend always choosing a local roofer.

The following reasons are a few suggestions as to why choosing a local roofer would be best:

▪️Building codes vary from town to town. A local roofer is going to be much more familiar with local building codes, which means that they know how to do things the right way.

▪️You’ll be supporting your local economy, which is always a plus!

▪️You most likely won’t have a difficult time tracking down a local roofer should any concerns arise. An out of town roofer can simply disappear.

▪️Local roofers are familiar with the proper procedures obtaining the needed permits for your project.

▪️Local roofers are often more equiped for your roofing project. They will most likely have a better understanding of the local climate requirements as well as local building codes. Both will play a part in ensuring your roof meets county codes, city ordinances as well as any HOA requirements.

▪️There may be some risks when choosing an out of town roofing contractor. Risks such as questionable workmanship and the increase of project costs.

▪️On the other hand if the costs is significantly lower than the average estimate you should consider this another red flag. Jobs completed without proper permits could also be another concern.
