Why Experience Matters When Choosing a Roofing Contractor

First-Hand Experience with Roof System Performance.
When choosing a roofing contractor, experience matters. As the property owner, you are able to tap into the knowledge and expertise of your tenured roofer to learn more about maintaining your investment.  

Newer roofing companies entering the market may know the basics of installation. With a seasoned contractor, however, you benefit from their many years in the industry. You will have access to their first-hand knowledge of how your roof system will actually perform. 

Established Reputation.
A new or unknown roofing contractor entering the market doesn’t have the longevity to establish a reputation, unlike a seasoned professional. To really know who you’re hiring, take the time to search online to learn about them. Find out how they rate with the Better Business Bureau, read reviews on Google, determine if they are involved in their communities and are really vested in preserving the beauty of the Hawaiian islands.

Multiple References.
You’re not going to invest in upgrading your property with just anyone. Established roofing companies will have available references available from Kona to Hilo on the Big Island and from Maui to Oahu that you can contact. Ask your contractor to supply a recent reference, as well as a customer from several years ago. Be sure to do your due diligence and make sure that you are investing your hard earned dollars with a roofing company that is focused on quality and service.

We understand the urge to go with a newer company if their price is lower. Just remember, there is value in experience and wisdom such as efficiency, knowledge of many roof systems and what works best in Hawaii, and business longevity proven by consistent performance.
