If you’ve ended up on this page, you’re probably in search of a qualified residential roofing company. In your search, you’ve probably noticed that just searching “roofing contractors near me” gives you results varying from national roofing companies to local residential roofing companies. How do you know what to look for when hiring a roofing contractor? What are the benefits of hiring local residential roofing companies instead of the larger, national businesses?
Let us share some benefits you’ll enjoy if you choose local.
Benefits of Hiring Local Residential Roofing Companies
Verifying License, Insurance & References
When people ask us what to look for in hiring a residential roofer, we first tell them to verify their license and insurance and check out their customer reviews or references. With a local residential roofing contractor, these things should be straightforward for your roofer to provide to you. Since they’re local, you may be able to visit homes in your area that your roofer has worked on before and examine their handiwork first-hand.
A roofing term we use a lot that most residential homeowners aren’t familiar with is building codes. Building code is a construction term referencing the published regulations prescribing procedures and construction details for structures. These building codes vary county by county. By hiring a local residential roofing company, you’ll have a low chance of running into any issues with non-compliance on local building codes since they’re familiar with the state and surrounding county building codes.
Quick Response for Residential Roofing Emergencies
Having the direct phone number of your local roofer in your phone after a storm or if a roof leak appears will be an immense stress relief for you. Dealing with storm damage doesn’t just include getting the roof repairs done promptly. A local residential roofing company can better assist with quick emergency leak inspections and roof tarping. A bonus is that they will handle the documentation for your insurance provider, and all of this can’t be done as timely by non-local roofing companies.
Your Roofing Project Has Our Full Attention
Every residential roof has its unique requirements, and so do the homeowners who live in them. Local residential roofing companies can give full attention to their projects because, well, you’re our neighbor, and that’s the right thing to do. We devote all the time needed to ensure the success of your roofing services, including your satisfaction. Being a smaller team, our owner and managers are knowledgeable about all aspects of your roofing work, and we’re able to take a hands-on and personalized approach to your roofing projects.
Meet Our Team Local Residential Roofing Experts
In August 2018, the Signature Exteriors team replaced a residential roof for a local homeowner. A few weeks ago (October 2019), we received a call from the same homeowner who wanted a quote on replacing her garage roof – a portion of the roofing work she wasn’t ready to tackle initially. When our office staff answered the phone, the homeowner immediately began to explain who she was, the work we had previously performed, and what she wanted to get done. The thing is, we already knew it was her when she called and, as soon as we realized she wasn’t reporting an active leak, we knew what she was looking to do – replace the roof on her garage. Before our customer had finished her sentence, our office administrator pulled up her old contract and our inspection photos for her garage.
Your local residential roofing company should treat you like you’re their neighbor before treating you like a sale – and that’s what we do! Head over to our “About” section to learn how we became your local roofing contractor and why we value offering high-quality roofing services to our neighbors. While you’re there, check out the descriptions of our team of roofing experts and get to know our team because we’ll get to know you! We’ll take the stress out of each step of your roofing project and will be here if you call us in a year, too!
Oh, and if you’re wondering how our customer’s garage roof replacement went – here’s a photo of our recently completed work. Happy roofing, neighbors!

I love that you talked about how every residential roof has specific needs, much like every home’s occupants. My father wants to have a residential roofing installation on his apartment because of the deteriorating leaks. Thank you for the information about the benefits of hiring local residential roofing, this will surely help him in choosing the right local roofing company.
You made a good point when you explained that it is important to find out if a roofing company has a verified license. In addition to that, it seems like it could be a good idea to see if you can find a roofing contractor that will create some kind of contract with you. You could hold the roofing contractor to their word if you sign a contract with them.

It’s helpful to know how there are building codes that need to be followed when replacing a roof. I think my parents are interested in replacing their roof before the year ends since it’s too damaged to get repaired like last year, so I’ll email your tips to them now. I appreciate your advice on working with local roofing companies that are familiar with our area’s codes.
