  • Get in the Habit. Homeowners need to get in the habit of looking at their roofs. You should get up and inspect your roof at least every six months so you’re familiar with the lay of the land. While examining your roof you should look for signs of loose shingles, or ones that have curled or appear loose. Identifying potential problems and keep an eye on them will help you when it’s time to bring a roofer in.
  • Heat is your Friend. Checking on your roof during a period of high heat is a great way to identify problem areas and places that may require repairs. Be sure to make the summer one of the times you conduct your own inspection on your roof.
  • Hire Locally. It’s a good idea to hire a roofer that is local because many rely on word of mouth. An out of town roofer isn’t afraid of bad word of mouth because they don’t regularly service the area. Talk to friends and relatives in the area and see what their experience has been with the roofer they hired.
  • Interview Several. Although it may seem overwhelming, it’s important to interview and get quotes from several roofers. As mentioned previously, get referrals from friends and neighbors. It’s also important to check all the references the roofing company provides.
  • Check Their Inspection. Compare the inspection the roofer does with the ones you’ve done. Make sure they have noticed the problem areas you’ve spotted. You want to choose a roofer that is thorough with their inspection and quote because they will be more likely to be meticulous when doing the job.

These tips will help you choose the best roofing company in Hawaii. Also remember to work with a roofer that puts a warranty on their work and carries insurance. Be sure to ask to see proof of both of these items so you know that you will be protected if anything happens down the road.
