Why Hire a Local Roofing Company? We’re Glad You Asked!
When it comes to choosing a roofer for your roof repair or replacement, it’s almost always better to choose a local roofing company over one from outside your area. Local roofers provide a number of benefits to their customers, including specialized knowledge, better responsiveness, and greater reliability.
Action Roofing & Construction Inc. has been the leading local roofing company serving Austin and the greater Central Texas region since 2005. We’re well known for our commitment to quality and responsiveness throughout every project we complete, and our customers have taken notice. Here are 5 reasons why you should hire a local roofing company like Action Roofing for your next repair or replacement!
Unmatched Response Time
In roofing, time is almost always of the essence! Many roof repairs or replacements arise as a result of emergency roofing situations, such as a severe storm or unexpected leak. To avoid damage to your property and worsening roofing issues, it’s important to hire a roofer that can respond quickly to resolve your roofing issues.
Because of their proximity, a local roofing company will be much more able to respond promptly to your roofing needs. At Action Roofing, we’ll reply to your first point of contact immediately, and we can often be at your property in as little as 24–48 hours!
Better Prices and Value
Roofing materials are heavy and expensive to transport. Roofing companies must factor in transportation costs when calculating a quote for your roof replacement or repair—and this gives local roofing companies an edge, as these transportation costs will be much lower.
In addition, a well-established roofing company in your area is more likely to have business relationships with local manufacturers and suppliers. This means they may be able to negotiate better prices on key roofing materials and pass those savings on to you!
The roofing industry is governed by many rules and regulations, including local building codes and restrictions on where and when certain materials may or may not be used. These codes can be difficult to keep straight from one locale to the next, and if your roof isn’t built or repaired according to code, you may be left paying a fine—or paying for another roof replacement.
A local roofing company will have in-depth knowledge of your area’s building codes by virtue of having more experience working in the area. In addition to knowledge of regulations, local roofers also know more about the unique roofing needs of your area, including quirks of the weather and climate that may not apply in other regions.
While the roofing industry has improved a lot over the years, the unfortunate truth is there are still many scammers out there. A common roofing scam is “storm chasing,” in which fly-by-night roofers will canvass areas recently affected by severe storms and offer to fix your roof at a shockingly low price. The real cost will be in the poor quality of their work—and when your roof starts failing prematurely as a result, they’re nowhere to be found.
A local roofing company is built on their reputation within a community. This means they have to do quality roofing work in order to succeed as a business and continue to get new customers. When it comes to repairing your roof after a storm, be very wary of roofers who come knocking on your door that don’t have any ties to your community. A local roofing company is much more trustworthy in emergency roofing situations.
Finally, a big part of what makes an established local roofing company better than out of town roofers is that you can depend on them not just now, but well into the future. Local roofers are here to stay, and they often have been in business for many years. That means once you find your preferred roofer for one project, you’ll be able to count on them the next time a storm rolls around, or when your roof reaches the end of its lifespan. This saves you a headache, and developing a good working relationship with a local roofing company will make future roofing projects much easier.
