How to Hire a Professional to Replace Your Missing Roof Shingles

Finding a professional to replace your roof shingles can be difficult. Finding a professional roofer who is reliable, affordable, and skilled is even harder. However, there are things you can do to improve your chances of finding a certified, reputable roof  contractor for the job.

How to Hire a Professional to Replace Your Missing Roof Shingles

Research the company

Before you hire anyone, you should research each company and only hire a company that has been around for a long time. Start by checking their rating with the BBB. Check with the Chamber of Commerce. Also, check other online resources, including Yelp, Google Reviews, and Angie’s List.

Check their reputation

When you research a company, check their reputation. Are they known for being rude and unprofessional? Are they known for poor workmanship? Are they known for stealing from their customers? Are they known for not completing the job on time? Have they been around for a while? When a contractor has been in business for a while, it means that they have proven themselves as reliable, affordable, and skilled.

Check reviews

Next, you should find reviews for the company. You cannot go online and read about a company without first checking their reviews. Most of the reviews will be found on the company website, but you can also find reviews on other review websites like Angie’s List.

After you have reviewed the company’s website and customer reviews, the next step is to call the company. When you call the company, you should call and talk to someone about the job. It is helpful if you call and talk to someone from the company. That way, you can make sure that the person who answers the phone is knowledgeable about the job and that they are the right person for the job.

Get quotes from different companies

Once you have a list of companies, you should call each company and ask them for a quote. When you contact each company, you should tell them that the job is for roof replacement. That way, the company is more likely to give you an accurate quote.

Here are some of the things you should ask each company for:

  • Is the company licensed and insured?
  • How many people will be working on the job?
  • What type of roofs do they have the most experience with?
  • How long has the company been doing this job?
  • How many roof replacements has the company ever done?
  • How long will it take to replace your roof?

Once you have consulted with each company and have received quotes, you should pick the company that offers the best value for your money. That way, you only have one company to deal with.


When you need to find a professional to replace your roof shingles, you should follow these steps. First, research each company. Then, you should call the company and talk to someone from the company. Finally, you should pick the most qualified company in your area for the job.
