Finding and hiring a roofer to trust with projects on this part of your Palm Harbor, home can be a daunting task. It’s important to do your research and make sure you’re trusting the right contractor with this work. These tips can help you select the best professional for the job.


  1. Check for insurance: No matter what the scope of work for the contractor you’re seeking, ensuring that they have insurance is a must. Check specifically for worker’s compensation and liability insurance policies. Ask to see the certificates. You can also call the insurance carriers to ensure that they are valid.
  2. Make sure your contractor is local: A local contractor has a vested interest in maintaining a good reputation in the community where they operate. An out-of-town contractor may just come and leave, and may not produce quality work in the process. Roofers will often provide a warranty, but if the company is not local with a long-standing reputation, they might not be around in five or ten years to honor that warranty.
  3. Similarly, avoid Storm Chasers: These are the roofing professionals who come to town after a major weather event, like a hurricane. They seek your business when your roof may be compromised and local roofers don’t have the bandwidth to take on more work. These contractors will often go door to door in impacted communities and try to get you to sign a letter of intent. Don’t sign anything and make sure you do your due diligence before agreeing to work with any contractor.
  4. You get what you pay for: While it might be tempting to choose the cheapest option, the price isn’t everything. You may pay a little more up front for quality workmanship and materials, but it will likely save you money in the long run.
