When a building owner does in fact find that, a new roof is needed or simply want to change the look of the home there are many established roofing contractors in the Long Island area that do beautiful residential and commercial work. Many contractor websites have tools where photos of the roof in question can be uploaded to view different types and colors of roofing being considered to get a rough idea of what it will look like when it is all said and done. As a bonus, some of the sites have options to play around with exterior coverings and paint colors, etc.
Finding a roofing contractor can be a confusing process, an owner wants to make sure that they are getting quality work at a competitive price. Often times people find word of mouth to be one of the best ways to find good contractors. So, ask other owners in the area, look the businesses up on Angie’s list and at the very least check the Better Business Bureau listings for the area the home or business is in. One of the biggest complaints is the disparity in prices of quotes, while it is nice to feel like money is being saved; it is not worth the savings to have sub-par work done, especially when it comes to roof repair.
Contractors that do roofing work in Long Island range from strictly roofers to home and business remodelers. If damage had spread beyond the roof, it may be more cost effective to hire a remodeler so the work can be consolidated to one company. When looking for specific roofing services such as ice dam protection, ventilation solutions, skylight adjustments or just a simple roof replacement it may be smarter to stick with a contractor that focuses strictly on roofing. As they will tend to be more familiar with the nuances of these processes, such as the best materials to use and may be able to help in navigating the insurance claim process. I cannot, however stress enough, that it is important to do due diligence when choosing any contractor owners plan to hire for the best outcome to anxiety producing problems.
