Dec 12, 2019 | Roofing, Siding, Spouting

With so many businesses around, it is sometimes hard to decide on who to hire. When you need a quality job done, we recommend you hire a local contractor to help you with all your home exterior needs.
Someone only here because of recent storm damage, may not be the best option for you. Here are a few of the advantages of hiring companies in your area:

You can get an honest opinion of the work they do. Often a friend or relative has had work completed by this local company. You can check the company out before you hire. As a company from another city or state may have comments from people you do not know or they may not have any references at all.

You can see the work they do. Local contractors have had projects where you can drive over and see the work.

You can get a licensed contractor.Licensing protects homeowners from businesses who have had problems in the past. It helps you get a reputable company.

You get an insured company. Insurance is coverage to protect you and your property.


You get someone familiar with city codes in your area. If the job is not competed according the local city codes and permits, it will be your cost to pay for very costly repairs or a complete re-roof. Someone from out of town is not coming back to fix it.

You will get higher quality materials and products. People from other places do not buy here and do not have a good relationship with local vendors. They will install poorer quality materials to even out the higher cost. Local vendors gets better pricing on products and this is a saving for you.

You get someone who can help with your insurance claim.All roofing companies work with insurance claims. A local contractor may have a working relationship with your adjuster. This can lead to less time in processing your claim.


You have a warranty and someone who will come back.Local people can and will come back to your home, if ever a need arise.

Just remember – Hire local, buy local!
