How to find the right roofing contractor in Colorado Springs?
When it is time to have a new roof installed on your home, it is important to find a roofing company you can trust to perform 5-star work. With so many different roofing companies out there these days, how do you find the right one? Here are some helpful pointers when you are looking for your next roofing contractor!
Time in Business
Roofing can be a “travel” business where others can try and capitalize on weather changes, especially here in Colorado. Many times you will see that roofers from out of state will come to Colorado after a major hail storm to try and win business for damaged roofs. Try not to let price determine which company you are going to hire. Sometimes, out of state vendors will lower the price, but you can get what you pay for with quality! As a Locally owned business, Petrali Roofing focuses on making sure the work is done right, without needing to bounce from house to house after a storm has hit. We understand the areas of town, and know what works needs to be done in order to help the community recover. We have been in business for over 20 years, and we know our stuff!

Have you checked their Google Reviews, or their Facebook Reviews? Reviews play a huge part in any local business. When a company has reviews, it means their clients and customers cared enough about their service to take the time to leave them a review. Here at Petrali, we have a Review profile of over 120 reviews on our Google Business page. We are also BBB accredited, and have been since 2013. For us, Reviews work like referrals and the reviews we have on our page prove our work is top-notch!
Licensing and Safety
Is the roofing company licensed in Colorado? Is the roofing company insured? Do they pride themselves on the safety of themselves and everyone around them? Roofing is a dangerous job and it is important for a company to not only have the right materials and equipment to perform the job at hand, but to have the experience. Along with the materials, make sure when hiring a roofer, they have insurance for all their workers, and the proper permits.
Communication and Contracts
When making sure the work done on your roof is performed the right way, communication during the sale of the process is huge. If the roofing contractor is hard to get a hold of, or takes a long time to respond to questions you may have, this could be a tell-tale sign of how the process may go while they are working on your roof, which is a concern. Contracts are also a vital role in any project. Having a written contract ensures deadlines are met, pricing is laid out for materials and labor, and who is responsible for what, including deductibles. We also recommend making sure there are no clauses in the contract that could cause you to be in a bad situation financially if there are any issues due to poor quality of work.
