When searching for a quality roofing company, one question you should always ask is how long have they been in business.  A lot of roofing companies are started by employees of other roofing companies and unfortunately, many of these new companies fail within the first 5 years because they don’t know how to run a business. Much more will fail within the first 10 years for the same reason. If in doubt, ask for a copy of their bond as that is the only document that shows the exact date the company started.

You could find yourself needing a new roof due to poor workmanship and the company you used has gone out of business.

Not all startups are substandard, they just haven’t had the time to prove themselves yet. By dealing with experienced contractors that have been around for many years you’ll have peace of mind that they’ve built strong customer relationships, provide quality service and is also a trusted source.
