If you’ve been looking for roofing contractors, you may have noticed that there are just as many local contractors as there are nationally-recognized franchises. In today’s post, the local roofers at 3JM Exteriors, Inc. share the reasons why working with local roofing contractors can be beneficial for you.
1. Personalized Service — If you’ve tried to contact your credit card or internet service provider’s customer service line, you know it’s not easy to get in touch with a real person on the line. When you do find someone who can actually help, you probably will never get the same person on the line again. This kind of impersonal service is common with large national companies, including roofing contractor franchises.
On the other hand, local roofing companies provide a more personal touch. It’s probably run by someone you know, or could even be a family-owned business for generations. You can expect warm, personalized service from the first roof inspection to job completion.
2. Convenience — Working with local roofing contractors is more convenient in many ways. While in-home consultations are not encouraged during these times, other activities such as roof inspections can be conducted within relatively short notice. More importantly, local roofers can be counted on during emergencies, where a quick response can make a difference between minor roof repairs and a major home restoration.
3. Knowledge of the Local Community — Local contractors tend to be more knowledgeable with local building codes, as well as local HOA requirements and popular architectural styles. This can be important if you happen to own an historic property or if you need to give your home an authentic look. Local roofers can also help you manage the stress of dealing with potential conflicts with neighbors that typically stem from noise and debris generated by roofing work.
4. Easy Warranty Claims Process — In the event that your roof suffers storm damage and it happens to be covered by your warranty, filing a warranty claim is much easier with a credentialed local contractor. For example, our designation as an Owens Corning® Platinum Preferred Contractor lets us make the warranty claims process easier for our clients.
