With so much information at the tips of our fingers and so much technology on which to access it, sometimes it can be a struggle knowing who to choose to carry out work around the home. We look at 5 tips for choosing a reliable and effective North Somerset roofing company:
Choose a local or regional company
It can be hard to distinguish the difference between local and national sometimes, but when searching for a North Somerset roofing company, find out where the company are based. If you are in Portishead, Clevedon, Nailsea or Weston-super-Mare, then look for someone that is local to the area.
Choose a North Somerset roofing company with a local office and showroom
Knowing where the company is based is often important to those choosing a North Somerset roofing company. You want the peace of mind that someone is accountable if you have a problem or know that there is a physical location should you want to go and visit their business premises. A showroom is also a great way to see the products that will be used to repair or install your roof.
Choose a Which Trusted Trader
There are some awful stories out there about cowboy traders that fix up roofs just using masking tape! These rogue traders then charge a fortune for this temporary fix and quite frankly give genuine roofing professionals a bad name. Choosing a Which Trusted trader or Trading Standards Approved company means that you will get a good quality service with a company whose reputation is important to them.
Check out the online reviews
A good, reputable North Somerset roofing company will have online reviews, testimonials and recommendations. It may be that you got their name from a friend who was happy with the service they received or that you have been carrying out some online research. Have a look at their website, their Facebook page and their Google reviews to see their feedback and to check out if they are active online. The more they put into their online reputation, the more serious they are about the service that they provide.
Book an initial consultation
If you book a consultation you will be able to get a good idea of the company’s experience, knowledge and ethics when it comes to service. You should be able to gain a sense of confidence from what they are telling you. A good North Somerset roofing company will put the customer first, listen to what you require and reassure you of the steps that they will take to provide what you are looking for. Make sure you ask them any questions and that their responses indicate that they know what they are talking about.
Now we could add price as an additional tip but when looking for quotes you will always get those at opposite ends of the spectrum. Those that seem too good to be true usually are and those that are too expensive may be out of your price range. Carry out your research first and don’t be too swayed by price. The quality of the service you receive is far more important.
