Steps To Hiring A Tacoma Roofing Contractor

1) Do proper research and get a general idea of what type of roofing system you want to install. This helps you to narrow down the scope of work so all the bids apples to apples as they say. 

2) Find 3-5 qualified Tacoma roofing contractors to give you bids. 

*Check with family and friends for personal references.
*Do an internet search for "Tacoma Roofing Contractors" and find some established companies. 
*Check reviews! In our present online generation reviews are important to everyone. The reputation of the roofer cannot be hidden, if there a quality company people will talk, if they are shady they wont be able to hide it. Search for the company name and the word reviews.

Here is an example of what I see when I search for reviews for my company search Query: "Chase Construction North West, Inc reviews." As you look down the search results you will see different contractor review sites where real customers have left reviews! Yelp unfortunately has filtered out about 10 quality 5 star reviews from valid customers.

Once you check your reviews and decide who the 5 contractors are you want to interview there are a few more important steps to continuing the process.

3) Make sure they are licensed, bonded and insured.
4) How many years have they been in business roofing Tacoma, WA. 
5) Ask for recent completed projects that are similar to your scope of work in your city or close by.
6) Get a detailed written proposal that makes provision for unforeseen work like rotten sheathing and framing.  
7) Look over your 3-5 bids and compare the quality of materials, types of system they are quoting and price. 
8) Choose the Tacoma roofer that is the best fit for you based on quality, value, price and relationship. 

If you do your ground work properly and make sure you are ready for the interview process it will make things go alot smoother. Once the job is complete and you are happy with the work remember to get online and give your Tacoma Roofers a good review, its a great way to say thank you for doing a good job.
