Most Houston roofing companies have a good track record and serve their customers right. However, there are certain things you want to know about so you and your family are protected in the event of a major storm or other situation which would draw “storm chasers” or companies from out of state that come in and try and cash in on the action.

When hiring anyone to perform work on your roof it’s more than wise to make sure you get them all:

  1. Be sure to ask for a copy of their bond and insurance – this will ensure that in case something happens you won’t be stuck with the bill! If when asking for this info they “balk” or don’t want to show you beware.
  2. Make sure they have a local office. Normally the slippery folks do not have a central office (or will set one up at the last minute to pass this test). Ensure they are established and are indeed from your area.
  3.  Check the materials they use. Many out of town roofers will try and cut costs by buying into cheap materials that look pretty. Pretty can break as fast as ugly so make sure they use quality materials in their work and guarantee it as well.
  4. Check with the Better Business Bureau. In addition to the BBB you can also check online reviews since most folks know they can’t hide from the internet. If you do a bad job, your reputation will follow you forever. Be sure to google their company name, employee names and even their email addresses. Google will serve up plenty of info.

Houston Roofing Companies – Highest Quality?

When it comes to quality we all want to think that we got the best out there. Most Houston roofing companies are aware of this fact. The truth is that more times than not getting that “extra thing” is not worth the money unless of course it tends to add value to the home should you be refinancing or selling down the road (even renting). It’s been proven by the real estate law of conformity that getting a roof similar to or the same as your neighbors (without too much deviation), can increase the value of your home, and getting an exotic type roof can actually “hurt” your homes value. So, be sure to go with what the neighborhood already has going on.
