Why You Should Hire an Established Roofing Company

When it comes time to choose the right Denver roofers, it’s generally best to pick a well-reviewed, local company with the right certifications, a solid guarantee, and fair prices. But there’s one factor that might matter most of all: experience. When you hire a well-established Denver roofing company with excellent reviews, you’re more likely to get solid workmanship, the expertise to handle any job, and a warranty you can count on. 

At Elite Roofing, we’ve been in business since 2006, and we’ve learned a lot over the past 15 years. With so many options, we know how difficult it can be to pick a roofing company. So to help you with your decision, here are a few reasons why you should hire a roofing company with a solid track record—and avoid the risks associated with less established companies.

A workmanship warranty you can count on

Most roofing companies offer some form of workmanship warranty, and we don’t recommend hiring a roofer without one. But not all warranties are created equal. With fledgling roofing companies, there’s a good chance any warranty you get is a “tail light warranty.” In other words, their warranty is only good as long as you can see their tail lights. That’s because many new companies fail within their first few years of operation. So if your roof was poorly installed, and problems arise when the company is no longer around to back up their warranty, you’re left with the bill and a shoddy roof in need of expensive repairs. With an established Denver roofing company, you can find years’ worth of reviews as their track record. You can trust that they’ll be around to uphold their end of the warranty.

Industry connections and product warranties

Speaking of warranties, established Denver roofing companies can offer product-related certifications and guarantees on top of their own workmanship warranty. For example, if you check out our About Us page, you’ll find that we’re certified contractors and/or preferred vendors for manufacturers like GAF, Owens Corning, CertainTeed, and more. These partnerships and certifications took years to achieve, and they allow us to offer our customers excellent prices and better warranties. Less established roofing companies simply can’t offer these kinds of industry connections. So, if something goes wrong with your roof that isn’t workmanship related, you’re unlikely to be covered.

Better value for your dollar

So, hiring an established roofing company means you get more reliable guarantees. But it also means you’re less likely to need those guarantees at all. Roofing companies with more industry experience can reliably do the job right the first time. Experienced roofers can complete a roofing project that will last for many years longer than their competitors. 

Further, while hiring a less experienced roofer might cost less, their inexperience comes with a price, as well. In the worst cases, shoddy work can lead to serious problems with your roof that will cost even more to repair. Even in the best cases, however, their work isn’t likely to last as long. This means you won’t save much in the long run when it comes time to repair your roof again.

Every roofing project is unique

When you work in the roofing industry for many years, you see some interesting things. More importantly, though, you work on some interesting roofs—roofs that present challenges a less experienced roofer may not know how to tackle. If your roofing project is particularly complex, you’ll want an established roofing company to handle it.

In addition, roofers with more industry experience can offer recommendations on what might be best for your roof. At Elite Roofing, we know how to prepare your roof for the delights of Colorado weather, whether it’s hail storm season or snow storm season. That expertise is often the difference between a roof that lasts a few years and one that lasts for decades.
