What are the Benefits of Hiring a Professional Roofing Contractor?
The right professional roofing contractor is the determining factor in whether your new roofing project is a long-term success or a temporary solution. Luckily, if you are working with a licensed, insured, proven roofing contractor, you don’t have to worry about the shortcomings of subpar service providers. This article will help you understand the benefits of finding and retaining a top-quality roofing contractor here in West Des Moines, and beyond.
Nu-Vu Builders is a premier roofing contractor based in Des-Moines – there are benefits to working with us
Nu-Vu, is a credible provider of roofing, siding and window solutions for home owners in the Iowa area. Based in Grimes and serving Greater Des Moines and most of the Iowa region, Nu-Vu Builders has already been vetted by a ton of discerning Iowans. The history of customer-first construction solutions provided by Nu-Vu leave little to be desired if you’re in the market for a roofing contractor.
In this article we will outline the reasons you should be looking for not only a well-rated roofing contractor, but one that takes your project seriously, and has built their business on outperforming peers, and building sustainably.
Working with a proven, reputable company for your roofing needs means you benefit by:
- Working with a bonded, insured contractor
- Getting the best consistency from a contractor
- Not having to worry about vetting a contractor
- Having full transparency in pricing and understanding the project
- Customer Service that can help guide you through the process
Reputation matters too. Nu-Vu, and outside of Des Moines and Iowa, other premium roofing contractors will be able to provide consistency, proven history, and realistic, highly vetted reviews by homeowners just like you. Read on to see how the right roofing contractor can improve your project outcome, and offer a seamless, consistent, and even pleasant project throughout.
Bonding and Insurance matter when selecting a roofing contractor
If you’re not working with a licensed, bonded and insured builder, you are risking not only the repair or replacement work, but a lot more than that.
It’s expensive to run a contracting business if you take it seriously. But being bonded and insured and properly prepared to handle the unforeseen, is an absolutely necessary part of doing business properly. Know that a reputable, properly run business is an important partner, and you cannot afford to cut corners when you are talking about repairs and construction projects that need to last 15, 20, or 30 or more years after completion.
A fly by night company, or a non-licensed, uninsured or non-bonded construction outfit won’t be there when you need them to be. Not to mention anything about the lack of professionalism that is common in projects from companies that don’t take credentialing, and insurance and training and development seriously. We won’t throw stones – but it’s important to understand just what you’re getting when you select a construction company to work on your roof.
Imagine where that company will be, and if they have done the proper work on your roof, when it’s hail season.
When hiring a roofing contractor, few things matter more than consistency
Ratings are important. They tell an aggregate story about a company and how their customers perceive them. But nothing tells a tale like consistency. Good reviews are an indicator of a good company, but reviews can be temporary and fleeting. Trends, however, that show all customers telling the same stories and the work ethic of the company – that is powerful.
You want to know that even though no company is perfect, that they work consistently, and that they fix problems and back their work up with integrity.
Consistency tells the story of a company that will be sustainable and will be able to fix any problems that arise in the future. More than that – consistency proves that the work the roofing contractor performs is significantly above average.
Premium Roofing Contractors are already vetted, and have reviews and customer testimonials to prove it
Let’s revisit the reviews and social proof though – because it’s not a minor indicator either. Nu-Vu knows that its reputation relies on customer proof, testimonials, and the actual outcomes of their work. All great construction companies know that this type of feedback and credibility matters.
When evaluating a roofing contractor, look at what their customers are saying about the process, the integrity of the company and its representatives, the workflow and the finished product. If you’re worried about paying a little bit more, understand that the proof lies in the ability for a company to stay in business, with strong ties to the community, and a customer-centric philosophy.
Even outside of Des Moines, or Iowa, where it’s less likely that Nu-Vu will be in the running for your roofing projects, proof of how a company performs their craft, and how they treat their customers is a very good indicator of whether they are the right company.
Nu-Vu is proud to say that we take our customer needs, and our customer’s projects as seriously as we can. We seek to improve every job, and to deliver on promises. Our reputation should be able to show the details of that methodology. We’re confident that it does. We invite you to see our reviews and see if our prior feedback meets your expectations in a roofing contractor.
Knowing what your contract looks like is an important benefit of working with a reputable roofing contractor
Having a team that is dedicated to providing a seamless and transparent project flow is important, too.
Our sales and management team are dedicated to providing the best care and helping you understand whatever you need to, to feel comfortable with a major construction project like a roof replacement or a major repair.
You will have questions. We know – this is what we do. But we will also be able to help you navigate your options, understand our pricing, understand how we stand behind our business and our work.
A good service provider will be doing these things. During a major construction endeavor on your home, your chosen company should not be more than a phone call or an email away. Your sales team and customer service representatives should be answering questions and not avoiding concerns. We’re Iowans, serving Iowans. And whether you’re in Iowa or not, you should feel like your chosen roofing contractor “gets you” and understands and can service your needs appropriately.
Customer Service, before, during and after the roofing project help to improve the process – one of the biggest projects you can work on with your home
This customer service solidifies a company’s legacy. It’s a driving factor in keeping a business around long enough to keep their client’s warranty secure. It’s a way to prove that the hard work a company does to build for their customers and build for their own success, is not trivial.
When you’re selecting a roofing contractor – at a time when every single detail matters because that is the shelter for your family and the cover for your home – you need to evaluate your choice of partners carefully.
