Your roof is your first line of defence against Niagara's harsh winter weather.


It takes a beating, so it's important to have your roof inspected regularly and repaired promptly when it's damaged. A well-kept shingle roof can last over 25 years, but you'll surely need the help of a roofing company in the Niagara area.


The roofing industry in Canada is home to over 8,000 roofing companies, so it can be tricky to choose the best one to look after your roof. Today, we'll explain how to find the best Ontario roofing company for your Niagara home. Keep reading; great roof care will be a call away.


LOOK AT ONLINE REVIEWS


The first step in finding the perfect roofing company is to look at local online reviews. No one can give you a stronger indication of the good and bad of roofing companies than former customers.


To truly make headway in your search, look for red flags. Seek out issues that former customers had with customer service or workmanship and use them to whittle down your list of candidates through a process of elimination.


When you're left with a few of the most reputable candidates, you can start doing more in-depth research.


ROOFING EXPERIENCE AND EXPERTISE


The best place to begin when you start researching local Niagara roofers is to look at their business websites. Head to the "about us" page and find out how long the company has been serving its local area.


In Ontario, roofing contractors aren't licensed by the government, so a company's experience is the best way to tell if they're a legitimate operation or not. A company with a couple of decades of roofing experience under its belt will have seen and solved more roofing problems.


You can also look for professional certifications, which indicate that a company holds itself to a certain standard of excellence. For roofers in Ontario, a GAF Master Elite roofing contractor certification is the gold standard.


GET MULTIPLE QUOTES


Once you've chosen 2-3 top roofing candidates, it's time to reach out and get a sense of how much your roofing work will cost. Roofing costs vary wildly depending on what you're having done, but an itemized estimate will help you understand where your money is going.


INSURANCE AND WARRANTIES


Never agree to a roofing service contract without asking about insurance and warranties. Roofing is a dangerous job, so every roofing company should have liability insurance to protect workers and customers alike. If a worker is hurt or your home is damaged, insurance will cover the associated costs.


Roofing warranties, on the other hand, cover you if the services or products you receive are faulty. Look for decades-long manufacturer and service warranties with every job.
