Search for roofing contractors online and you’ll find that there are just as many national franchise roofers as there are local ones. In today’s post, the local roofing and siding contractors at Triangle Home Exteriors discuss the benefits of working with local roofers.
Local roofing contractors serve a comparatively smaller clientele. This makes it easier to schedule online consultations and roof inspections, sometimes even on short notice. In addition to the convenience, local roofers have far better response times. This is crucial during roofing emergencies, where a quick response from your roofer can make the difference between minor repairs and a costly roofing restoration.
Working with a company that serves clients across the country can be difficult and impersonal, sometimes inconsistent service. You don’t know who the company will send to install your roof, or whether they’ll send subcontractors of their own employees. This means you’d be rolling the dice on the quality of workmanship.
In comparison, local roof replacement contractors offer more personalized service. There’s a good chance the roofing company is a family-owned business, the installers may be people you know. This means you can expect warm and personalized service, from planning all the way to completion.
Local Building Knowledge
In addition to international building codes, there are local building codes and rules that need to be followed by building and renovation contractors. Local contractors have more than just a passing familiarity with such requirements, which means you are far less likely to end up with a noncompliant installation. Local contractors are also more attuned to local tastes and styles, and can help make sure that your new roof will look authentic and will fit with the neighborhood, instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.
Easy Claims Process
A local roofing company can make filing insurance and warranty claims easier and less complicated. Navigating insurance claims requirements, in particular, can be difficult without the timely response of a roofing contractor. Also, if your roof is installed by your manufacturer-certified contractor, the warranty claims process is much more streamlined because they will handle the process beginning to end.
