Finding reliable roofers for your project is hard enough with the number of professionals offering their services, but add storm chasers to the equation and it can be almost impossible to choose. Their attractive low estimates and promises of speedy service can sometimes seem irresistible but you are much better off selecting a local roofer.

4 Key Benefits of Hiring Local Roofers

Working with a storm chaser is a waste of your time and money, as they rarely deliver what they promise. To avoid the risks of working with these so-called “contractors”, we recommend hiring local roofers instead. Empire Contractors shares four reasons why you should go local:
  1. Reputation Verifiability. Working with locals means it’s easier to confirm whether the claims they made on their website, Facebook page or pamphlet are true or not. You can speak to previous customers and ask to see the work, to determine whether a contractor can provide you with what you need. Additionally, local roofers probably have the references that storm chasers do not, so you are less likely to fall for a bad deal if you limit your options to local businesses.
  2. Code Familiarity. With the role your roof plays in your home’s protection, it’s important for it to be flawless. Building codes, however, vary from place to place. Hiring a local roofer ensures they are well-versed in the specific codes in your area, helping you avoid delays. Additionally, local companies are more likely to offer the residential roofing services you need, as they are already familiar with what is and what isn’t allowed in your location.
  3. Knowledge of Local Weather. Hiring a contractor that knows about the weather your area normally experiences means you can have a material that performs specifically for the conditions in your region. Unlike storm chasers who go from town to town, local roofers can suggest the most climate-suitable products for your home because they have the same concerns.
  4. Better Relationships. One of the main disadvantages of hiring out of state is that the contractor may not be around to help you after your project’s completion. Local roofers, on the other hand, are easily accessible. Since you live in the same area, they can readily respond to your needs.
