Search online for roofing contractors and you’re bound to find local contractors along national franchises. In today’s post, Chase Roofing LLC discusses the reasons why you should be working with local roofing contractors.
1. You get more personalized service — Large national franchises won’t provide the same kind of service that locals can. Usually, you’d be working with a different person in every step of the roof replacement process, from consultation to design to installation. Often, franchises delegate the in-person service to subcontractors that may or may not provide quality service, which means it would be the luck of the draw if they happen to send good subcontractors. On the other hand, local roofers provide a more personal touch — you’d be working with the same people from consultation to installation to maintenance and insurance claims.
2. Their location is more convenient — Roofers in close proximity can be beneficial in many ways. They can be counted on in the event you need immediate roof repair. Scheduled maintenance inspections can likewise be done quickly, even on short notice during off-peak seasons. Filing warranty claims can also take less time and effort if you’re working with a local roofer with a manufacturer designation.
3. They can help you with insurance claims — If you need to file an insurance claim after a storm, you can count on a local roofer to be there in time to help you with a thorough roof inspection. A roofer’s report can complement the insurance adjuster’s findings and reduce the chances of delaying your claim.
4. They know the local community — Local contractors know local rules and regulations, including HOA requirements and local traditional architectural styles. You can have the assurance that your roof will be compliant and authentic. Local roofers can also help you manage potential conflicts with neighbors regarding noise and debris that are generated during roof installation and repairs.
