How to Choose a Roofing Contractor:

Does your house need a new roof? If your dining room or bedroom has large buckets for collecting' drips, the answer is probably 'yes.' If you have lived in Portland, OR for any amount of time, you know that there is no shortage of rain to be found in the Pacific Northwest! Assuming that you are not willing or able to replace the roof yourself, you will be searching for a reliable roofing contractor to take care of the work for you. The question then is, how do you find a dependable roofer?

The answer may not be as difficult as you believe. Here are a few things to consider when choosing a Portland roofing company:

1. Contact the local Portland Oregon Better Business Bureau by phone or visit their website. While the BBB will not provide a list of roofing contractors for you to contact, they can give you an idea of how the roofing company responded to complaints if they have any so that you can get a feel for the character and reputation of the roofing contractor.

2. Go to a local home building supply store and start asking around for recommended roofing companies. They usually have a list of specialists that they recommend to people who are looking for roof-related consultations or help with home improvement projects. Oftentimes the store might have a workshop or seminar put on by one of these roofing experts. Attending a session may give you a better idea of what goes into replacing or repairing a roof and will give you a feel for the roofing contractors personality and style. Sometimes just meeting someone and going with your gut feeling about them can be used as one of the criteria for selecting the best roofer for the job.

3. Ask people you know for referrals. If you get the name of a roofer that might work for your project, ask for referral letters from past clients and then follow up by contacting these clients. It would be a good idea to drive by a recent project of theirs and take a look at their workmanship.

4. See if you can negotiate to pay in portions. Never pay 100% for a roofing job (or any type of home improvement project) up front. It is OK to pay 25-33% as a down payment, but make a written agreement to pay partial payments in two or three stages. Make sure to get a written estimate first, and if the roofing contractor attempts to change the terms of your agreement, report them to the BBB and/or local authorities.

5. Always make sure any roofing contractor you are considering is properly licensed, bonded AND insured. Ask them to provide written confirmation of these credentials. You can check a roofing contractors license in Oregon at the Oregon Construction Contractors Board. Also make sure to obtain proof of ample insurance. If someone is injured on your property while they are replacing your roof, you definitely do not want your homeowners insurance to be liable for the injury!

A roof is one of the most important components of your house. Make sure that you take all possible precautions in choosing who you hire to repair or replace you roof. It is such an important part of your home, and only an expert should perform the needed repairs and replacements.
