Do you know how many roofing companies there are in Colorado Springs? The number fluctuates depending on the time of year and what the weather has dropped on us in the summer, but normally the number of roofing contractors in Colorado Springs and El Paso County will be between 150 and 350.
After a hail storm, you could have as many as 5 - 10 roofers knocking on your door.
Which One Is The Right One To Work On Your Project?
Here is a list of qualities and characteristics that many of the best roofers in Colorado Springs have. These qualities aren't normally something that are "tangible," meaning that you can't quantify them, specifically. They're more intrinsic. These are the types of qualities that you can discern when you talk to them about your project and your needs.
We've published other blog articles and videos about why you shouldn't choose a roofer based solely on price, but this list will give you an idea of what to look for as you interview roofers when you need a repair or full roof replacement.
PILLAR #1: No Pressure Sales Process
There's an old cliché that goes, everybody likes to buy things, but nobody likes to be sold. I
s the roofer at your door or at your kitchen table pushing you to call in a claim or sign a contract? Is he wanting you to make a decision right now?
If so, you should definitely take some time and think things through. I'm not saying that he's the wrong roofer for your project, but if he's the right one, he won't mind waiting a few days while you think about his proposal or information.
PILLAR #2: Education Is Top Priority
Do you feel like the roofer is intentionally or unintentionally keeping information from you? Does it seem like he doesn't want you to understand the whole process or how insurance will be involved?
When you're making a purchase that involves this much money and is so large in scope, you need to have all your questions answered. You should understand the things you want to understand, not just the things he wants you to understand.
If the roofer is more expensive than the other roofers or your insurance claim, you should know why that is and know how the roofer will interact with your insurance company to resolve the difference.
You should also understand what roofing materials will be installed on your house and why the roofer recommends those materials.
An educated consumer makes better decisions almost every time. If your roofer doesn't want you to be educated, that's a good sign you should find a different roofer.
PILLAR #3: Confidence
By "confidence" I don't mean that the roofer has confidence, although that's important. I mean that you should have confidence. Before, during, and after the project, everything your roofer is doing should provide you with, and sustain confidence, that you have chosen the right contractor for your project.
PILLAR #4: Assurance Of Value
There are a lot of cheap roofers in Colorado Springs. If the roofer you have chosen is more expensive, even if you have to invest extra in the roofing project, you are assured that you are making a great investment and that the company you have chosen will provide you with service and materials that are the highest in quality.
PILLAR #5: Peace Of Mind
Can the roofer you've chosen manage the project, complete the job correctly, AND interface with your insurance company in a way that will go smoothly and require the least amount of disruption and trouble to your life? When you have that peace of mind, that's a very valuable commodity.
PILLAR #6: Trust
I know that trust is very similar to peace of mind and confidence, but I'd like you to imagine something. Imagine you were called away on a long trip at the time your roofing project was about to start? Would you trust the roofing company and their laborers and installers to be on your property while you're away? That's the kind of roofing company you want doing your project.
PILLAR #7: The Process Is Pleasant, Enjoyable, And Even Fun!
A roofing job can be disruptive, stressful, and messy. Good roofing contractors strive the make the process relaxed, stress-free, clean and organized, and when possible, even fun for you.
