How to Find the Best Florida Roofing Contractor for a New Metal Roof
Updated: Mar 5
So you want to install a metal roof in Daytona Beach, New Smyrna Beach, or even the Palm Coast area? You will find there are many roofers to choose from. However, not all of them will be in your local county or have the experience that you need for your home. Here are some tips for finding the best roofer near you:
Ask for referrals
If you have a friend, family member, or neighbor who recently had a metal roof installed on their home or property, they are one of the best places to start. Ask them who they hired as their roofing contractor. References are important.
Ask your real estate agent
Real estate agents deal with sellers putting on new roofs all the time. They likely know who the best local roofer is in your area. They often have clients from Edgewater all the way up to Flagler Beach. So give them a call and get their roofing contractor recommendations.
Ask the manufacturer of the metal roof
If you want to hire a qualified metal roofing contractor, you can contact a metal roof material manufacturer. Manufacturers will have contacts in the roofing industry and can let you know about roofers who have installed their metal roofing products.
Nextdoor, Angi, Facebook, and Google are just a few of the internet resources you can check to see which roofer is recommended. Even if a recommended roofing company only has a small number of reviews, if they are positive ones you might want to give them a call. Notice how long they have been in business, their license, and photos of their roofing installations. Go to their roofing company website and check out their offerings. Not every roofer does metal roofs.
Meet with several local Roofing Contractors
Call the top 3 roofers in your area to come out and give you a free consultation. You will then have the opportunity to meet the roofing contractor and see if you are comfortable with having them do your roofing project. The contractor will have a measurement of your roof and look at potential pain points, such as water penetration areas, low spots, roof planes, flashing, and more.
Metal Roofing Product Estimate
The roofing contractor will provide you with color options and possible types of metal panels and seams. You can discuss roof skylights or any other options you may want. Don't forget to ask about a down payment, how the balance is handled, insurance, warranty, and any financing offered. Ask as many questions as you can about metal roofing.
Make sure the roofer is responsive and experienced. Here are some signs a roofing contractor is the right one:
they show up at your house on time for the appointment
they have positive customer feedback, reviews, and/or testimonials
they have a state license and can prove it
they can provide photos of their metal roofing experience
they easily answer your questions about the roofing process
you feel comfortable with the roofer.
At the end of the day, it's your home and money that will be invested in the new roof. The research will pay off in the end.
