Here’s What to Look for in the Best Roofers

Here in San Antonio, we’re no strangers to severe storms that can take a toll on your roof, siding, and more. Not only can these damaging storms damage your home, but they also cause a lot of stress. Your roof is damaged, you’re not sure how you’ll pay for the repairs, and on top of all that you need to find a San Antonio roofing contractor to fix your roof—quickly!

Here at Dolan Roofing & Construction, we understand how stressful it is to be faced with storm damage to your roof. To help make things easier, we’re sharing a few of our best tips for finding a quality San Antonio roofing contractor who will not only completely repair your roof, but make your life a lot easier in the process. Let’s get started!

Pick a roofing contractor based in San Antonio

The best place to start when finding a roofing contractor after a storm is by searching for local roofers based here in San Antonio. This will not only make your search easier (by narrowing down your list), but local roofers provide a number of benefits compared to roofers from out of town.

The first is specialized knowledge of roofing in your area. Roofs are subject to regulations and building codes that often vary from city to city or county to county. While a roofer from out of town may not be familiar with these restrictions, a San Antonio roofing contractor will be well versed in meeting these requirements.

In addition, local roofers can give you more peace of mind and trust. Since they’re based in your area, their success depends on maintaining a good reputation within the community for high quality, friendly service, and honesty. That trust means a lot in the roofing industry, where in the past scam artists have been all too common. 

Be wary of potential scammers

Speaking of trust, the roofing industry has come a long way over the years. Unfortunately, though, there are still plenty of unscrupulous companies out there who quote cut-rate prices to homeowners and do a shoddy job repairing their roof.

Even more unfortunately, scammers are an especially common sight following a major storm event, such as a hail storm or wind storm passing through a given area. These “storm chasers” will follow in the path of severe storms hoping to take advantage of homeowners desperate to have their roof fixed. 

Be wary of roofers knocking on your door after a major storm, unless you know they’re from your area and have the right experience, qualifications, and credentials for the job. Always do your homework before hiring any roofing contractor, from San Antonio or otherwise!

Look for storm restoration experience

No two roof repairs are the same. Depending on the circumstances, a successful roof repair or replacement project may require specialized skills or experience to complete the job as headache-free as possible.

When it comes to storm damage repairs, San Antonio roofers with roof restoration experience are ideal. These contractors know how to deal with the type of damage commonly caused by storms, and they know how to complete this work efficiently to restore your home as quickly as possible.

Storm restoration specialists also have more experience dealing with insurance companies. The roof insurance claims process is often complicated and difficult to deal with as a homeowner, but roofers interface with insurance companies regularly. A San Antonio roofing contractor with storm restoration expertise will be able to help you navigate the insurance claims process more easily to ensure you get the payout you deserve.
