To help you choose the right roofing contractor or roofing business for you, we’ve gathered together three tips below.
Ask for recommendations
When choosing a roofing contractor, your first point of contact should be to ask friends or family members for recommendations. While you should also read reviews online, people are more likely to be honest in regards to recommendations in-person, especially if they know you.
Once you’ve got the recommendations, ask for a quote and a quick call to discuss your roofing needs, perhaps asking what materials they’d recommend, the time frame, and any additional information or questions you may have.
Look for NRCA backed roofing companies
The national roofing contractors association (NRCA) are the gold standard of training and qualification in the roofing industry. Search for companies with this accreditation, such as the team at Jacob’s Ladder, for a guaranteed excellent service and experience.
Ask for an estimate
Finally, a big factor when it comes to choosing a roofing company is price. Naturally, you will want to go for the company that offers you the cheapest quote. However, this is not always the best option as the quality of workmanship may be lacking. This isn’t always the case, but it is a good indicator of what to expect.
Ask for multiple quotes from different roofing contractors and compare these, deciding which is the best value for money for you. And remember, sometimes it’s best to spend a little more money for a guaranteed high-quality job, reducing the need for quick fixes in the future.
Choosing roofing contractors is not as easy it sounds. To guarantee the best job, you should ask for recommendations, choose NRCA-backed roofing companies, and assess your estimates before going ahead with the purchase.

Richard - Lexington, KY 40517
In May of 2022 a very damaging hail and windstorm pretty much destroyed my entire roof in Lexington Kentucky. Due to an insurance company that did not want to pay Jacobs Ladder was able to negotiate payment for an entirely new roof, decking and all which now meets current codes. Final work was completed January of 2023. Now my roof which leaked into my kitchen from May 2022 through December of 2022 has ceased to leak onto my kitchen floor. Their work is so good it withstood the 100 mph plus winds of 3rd March 2023.
All around #1 business!!
