Finding The Right Contractor For Your Historic Roanoke Home

If you are the owner of a historic home in the Roanoke area, chances are a roof replacement has crossed your mind, and if it hasn’t, maybe it’s time that it does. A roof replacement is a substantial renovation for any homeowner, but historic homes pose even more of a challenge. Thankfully, with the right roofing contractor, roof replacements on historic homes don’t have to be complicated! Here are some tips for finding the right contractor for the job:

Word of Mouth 

If you have friends, family or neighbors who also own historic homes in the area and have had a roof replacement in the past, ask for their recommendations. They may have learned things about various contractors along the way that will be helpful for you in your search. Also, asking for recommendations from friends and family in general can be helpful. 

Online Reviews

Search for roofing contractors in your area online, and pay attention to the reviews of those who come up. Many times reviews will shine light on the professionalism and overall quality of the experience customers have had with the particular company, and many times you will be able to find customers with situations similar to yours and read about their experience. 

Schedule An Estimate With The Contractor

Finally, it is important to schedule an estimate appointment with at least one of the companies you are considering, because in order to truly know what you’re getting into, you need to have your roof inspected in person, so that the company can see exactly what you need and provide a quote. This step will also allow you to have a personal interaction with the company and get a feel for the experience they will provide, as well as ask any questions you may have about the process or their experience.
