4 Reasons to Choose Your Roofer Wisely

Updated: Aug 17, 2023

Thanks to technology like your smartphone, finding services has never been easier. Yet, while you no longer need to flip through the Yellow Pages to find a roofer, there are reasons to choose your roofer wisely. If your roof needs repair, you can find a contractor within seconds. However, with this easy access to information, you risk encountering unreliable sources. Many fly-by-night roofers appear after big storms like Derecho, potentially leaving homeowners worse off than they were before.

If you want to be sure you're not taken advantage of, read our post, 4 Ways You Could be Scammed by Shady Roofers to be sure you don't become one of their victims.

The last thing you want is to be taken advantage of or stuck with a bad roof during the next storm. Before you hire just anyone who shows up in your online search engine, consider these 4 reasons to choose your roofer carefully.

4 Reasons to Choose Your Roofer Wisely

1. Warranty

If your new roof isn't installed properly you may void all manufacturer warranties. A reliable roofer should also provide their own warranty as well, not only on the materials but on their work as well.

At JB Roofing & Gutters, we provide a 10-year labor warranty on our services to protect you and your home. ​Our 10-year labor warranty counts not only towards our re-roofing work but also towards our repair work. That's our guarantee to you!

2. Quality of Materials

A shingle isn’t a shingle. What I mean by that is every shingle is not created equal. There’s a reason why so many roofs were stripped of their shingles during this most recent storm while others seem completely untouched.

The Owens Corning Duration shingles are considered high-performance roofing shingles. These shingles come with a 130 mph wind warranty.

It might seem like a minor detail, but this little fabric strip (as seen in the images below) is in every single shingle that we install making sure your shingles remain secure during the windiest Midwest storms.

3. Clean Up

The clean up that comes with replacing a roof can be a lot to manage. Some roofers are known to leave nails and other debris behind. Not only is this unsightly in your yard, but it can also be dangerous for children and pets as well.

But when JB Roofing leaves your house it will look like we were never there.

4. Timely work

The work on your roof needs to be done in a timely fashion. Your home can be damaged if your roof is left uncovered for any amount of time. A professional knows how to complete the job while protecting the home.

We make sure that your roof isn't left exposed while we're working on it. And we're sure to get the job done in a timely matter after you call us to make sure your home is safe.

Choose Your Roofer Wisely

Your home is your largest investment. And your roof plays a very important part in protecting it. So, don't trust it to anyone.
