How to Find the Perfect Roofing Contractor for Your Home?

If you have invested in a home, it is essential to trust a quality roofing contractor when you are installing or repairing your roof? The roof protects your entire home from the elements outside and needs to be maintained or repaired correctly. So, how do you find the PERFECT Roofing Contractor for your home?


Here is a checklist of items to look for or consider while searching for the best roofing contractor fit for you:

Certified Roofing Contractor

What if you could hire a local Tampa Bay company that is not only a GAF Certified Roofing Contractor but also an Owens Corning Roofing Preferred Contractors? No 1 Home Roofing is both. Here is information about both contracting types.

GAF Certified Roofing Contractor

A GAF roof protects more homes and businesses in the U.S. than by any other product. They are one of the leading roofing manufacturers in North America, with plants strategically located across the U.S. A member of the Standard Industries family of companies, GAF is part of the largest roofing and waterproofing business in the world. GAF’s CertifiedTM Weather StopperĀ® Roofing Contractor program is a steep-slope program that screens residential roofers and trains them. Only 6% of roofing contractors are in this program, as many roofers are unwilling to go through the process.

Owens Corning Preferred Contractor

When you hire an Owens Corning Roofing Preferred Contractors, they are a part of an exclusive network of roofing professionals who meet high standards and strict requirements for professionalism and reliability. Look for the Owens Corning Roofing Preferred Contractor Logo on a Contractor’s Website or Contract. Have confidence that you’ve hired a roofing contractor that was trained by the best of the best and they are using a top-quality product on your home!

To be an Owens Corning Preferred Contractor, these requirements must be met:

  • Carries all required state and local licensing
  • Holds at least $1,000,000 in general liability insurance
  • Good standing with the Better Business Bureau
  • Adheres to the latest industry standards and technology
  • Shows dedication to customer service and craftsmanship

Roofer’s License

You will want to check to see if the prospective roofer that you are talking with has a valid license with the Department of Business and Professional Regulation? Be proactive and review here.

Reduce your Risks

There are some minimum qualifications your roofing company should possess running a professional business:

  • Certification,
  • Licensed,
  • Insurance,
  • Safety first, and
  • Warranties

When interviewing a company, these qualifications should be presented quickly. If they are not present or in place, walk away quickly?

A+ Rating with Better Business Bureau

Look for an A+ Accredited Business rating with the Better Business Bureau. BBB is one of the indicators that your Roof Company is legitimate and can be trusted to do a professional job for you. There is a customer review rating which helps to create a rating from the BBB. We are happy to say that No. 1 Roofing has an A+ rating!

Online Review Sites

There are several online review sites that you can check a contractor’s reputation out before hiring them. Some of the sites are FaceBook, Google, Angie’s List, Yelp, etc. Read through the reviews and especially the individual comments about the business.

F.L. Building Codes

Living in a coastal area of Florida, we have the threat of Florida storms regularly. Our municipal and state building codes reflect this, and a roofing professional needs to know be compliant with the codes in your area before they repair or replace your roof. Here are the most recent Florida Building Codes.

Roof inspections

If you are having regular roof inspections done by an experienced Roof Company, you will know that your roof is in good shape and will pass a home inspection.
