Tired of Replacing Your Shingle Roof – Choosing a Reroofing Company

Reroofing is a large-scale project that is best undertaken with a qualified partner because choosing a good-fit reroofing company to help guide and advise you can make the process smoother. Here are some of the considerations you should keep in mind when choosing a partner.


Experience is the number one consideration for anyone looking for a reroofing partner. While many have general roofing experience, reroofing is a specialized area of the roofing industry that requires a different level of expertise.

  • The length of experience with reroofing applications
  • The systems they are familiar with
  • What is their preferred system and why?
  • How many square feet they have installed?

Finding a partner who has a lot of experience with various reroofing systems will help you find the right system for your specific application. A partner with a lot of experience with many reroofing applications can help ensure that your application is completed smoothly.

Dealer Networks

choosing a roofing companyAnother thing to consider when selecting a reroofing company  is whether or not they are part of an extensive, factory-backed, certified dealer network. An extensive, factory-backed, certified dealer network helps to reduce costs and ensure that your panels are installed correctly, don’t leak, and last.

Installer education is also crucial because a partner that prioritizes education and certification is a partner that cares about their work and making sure it is done correctly.

Some questions that you can ask to help screen potential partners are:

  • What manufacturer certification classes have been completed?
  • How long has the contractor been certified?
  • How many projects have been installed?
  • How many of the installer's previous projects have been non-warrantable? Zero is the goal.
  • What degree of complexity can the installer handle?

These questions will help you decide if the installer is a good fit partner for your project.
