The Dallas area has its share of insane weather. In fact, just recently Texas residents have been surprised by a sudden shift to wet weather after years of drought. Rain, floods, wind and hail will come and go, but your roof should be able to withstand them all. You need the best possible roofing contractor in Dallas TX, and to find that, you often must research and sift through the worst, first. There are plenty of roofing contractors ready to take your money, but not enough of them are knowledgeable and skilled enough, or care enough, to do the best possible job.
Just after crazy weather, you may find shingles missing (thanks to the wind), or hail damage that leaves you in need of someone to repair it all. Your troubles could be more if your roof is older, and you could find yourself needing roof repair immediately. However, be wary of roofers who come to you. Stable roofing companies have a home location, and customers come to them with their needs. Traveling roofers will arrive just after a major weather-related incident in an attempt to make as much money as possible off of homeowners’ struggles. Make sure you know your roofer’s primary location, history, and reputation. In fact, it is a good idea to start searching and know whom you want to work with well before bad weather strikes.
You want a roofing company recognized for its work. Always look for proper Texas credentials or any type of legitimate license or registration (cities such as Dallas require contractors to register or be licensed with them). Check various associations, such as the North Texas Roofing Contractors Association, or the Better Business Bureau. Your roofing company should be established in the area, and be known for good business.
Of course, price will always be a factor. You want to save money where and when you can, but you also want the best roofing contractor in Dallas TX for your cash. As you shop, be wary of offers that seem too good. You want to get multiple bids, but do not be taken in by the lure of a super-low bid. This could be a sign that the company does not carry proper insurance and would do anything just to have the business — you are more likely to end up with poor workmanship that reflects that low price you paid.
Also, make sure you know the basic procedures for hiring a roofing contractor. Be aware of costs and completions dates, and never pay anything prior to the job’s completion (exception – high end special order products can require some money upfront to special order materials). Your roofing contractor in Dallas TX should update you step-by-step, and never purchase more materials or further work without consulting you first, and discussing all your options.
