Finding the Best Roofing Contractor


  • Check the status of the Roofing Company with the Department of Business and Professional Regulation
  • Ask to see a Certificate of insurance for liability insurance and workers compensation, you may even call the broker listed on the certificate.
  • Choose a local roofing contractor, maybe even drop by the office.
  • Check reviews not just google, check the better business bureau, Facebook and more, it is important that the company has five stars but also how do they solve issues with unhappy customers.
  • 1. Reviews and Referrals

    The first place to start is with people you know. Chances are, someone you know has worked with a roofing contractor and may be willing to give you a recommendation.

    The next best thing you can do is check out their reviews. The company’s website is a good place to start for customer feedback. Also check Google,1,,,

    Doing your due diligence may take a little bit of extra time. But it’s worth it to avoid a bad contractor or worse, a scam.

    2. Choose a Local Contractor

    The chances of falling for a roof scam is less when you choose a local roofer.

    Look for a company that’s established – how long have they been in business?

    3. Licenses and Insurance

    Always ask a potential roofing company about their licenses and insurance. Roofing a home is dangerous work.

    Having a license and being insured is not negotiable.  You don’t want to be left holding the bag if somebody gets hurt while working on your house.

    A roofing company with the proper licenses and insurance will probably cost you a bit more. You cannot put a price on safety.

    Many contractors even offer a safety training program. This allows them to educate their workers and lower the chances that someone will get hurt on your property. You should ask  your contractor if they have a safety program in place.

    4. Check Out the Warranty

    Ask the roofing contractor about his/her warranty – how many years are offered with the contract. Most roofing companies will offer warranties on their work. This is separate from the manufacturer’s warranty for materials, so be sure to pay close attention to what the warranty covers.

    5. Price Isn’t Everything

    When you’re shopping for a roofing company, remember that price isn’t everything. If a contractor’s price is way below everyone else’s do your due diligence before signing.

    A bit of variance between bids is normal and to be expected. A huge price cut, however, is a warning flag.

    The company may be using cheap materials. Perhaps they aren’t paying for the proper licenses and insurance. Or they could flat-out be a scam, taking your money and disappearing with it.


    6. Ask How’ll They Handle Homeowner’s Insurance

    When you need to replace your roof because of damage, your homeowner’s insurance company will be involved.

    Most contractor’s require a deposit and an interim payment before work is completed. Insurance companies, sometimes pay in different ways – some will pay upon completion, so make sure to discuss this prior to signing contract.

    7. Do They Offer More than One Material

    Many roofing companies specialize in one or more types of roofs However, that doesn’t mean that they will offer you only one option. You should still get your choice of colors and materials.Remember, the look and quality of your roof will have an effect on the resale value of your home. You want to be assured that you’re getting a good deal on a roofing material that’s suitable for your home.

My Florida Roofing was phenomenal, always on time and detail oriented. Very knowledgeable on the different types of roofs and options. Felix and Maria, picked up the phone immediately and always answered my questions. The owner Rene was on site frequently looking over the job. They were also the best priced and were even recommended by other roofing companies. Very happy with the outcome.

Having my roof done by My Florida Roofing has been nothing less than an excellent experience. The entire team has been super professional and attentive from the beginning. From the office team who handles the paperwork/permits and customer service and quickly sets up appointments; to Felix, our very knowledgeable and courteous sales rep, who was in constant contact throughout the project time, to give us updates and check up on us; to the installers who did an amazing job; to the owner who made sure to personally come and inspect before, during and after the roof was installed. Everyone did an outstanding job. Now let's talk about GOING ABOVE & BEYOND: Maria - the project manager. She was absolutely the person that made the entire process smooth and easy. She was always available to answer any questions and to give me updates (Maria - you are amazing- thank you!) We love our new roof. I am thrilled we decided to use My Florida Roofing. Thank you! I totally recommend this company and to anyone who needs to come by and see our roof we are at Lindsey Lanes - Vero Beach (house will be painted off-white soon, but for now is Yellow) - See photo for reference.
