Local roofing and siding contractors often find themselves having to compete with larger national contractors. That said, local roofing and siding replacement contractors have more than one edge that their countrywide competitors do not. Here are some of the biggest advantages you can have when hiring a local siding contractor.
Local connections mean your locally trusted contractor can get your work done faster by finding other trusted contractors to help with completing the job. For instance, let’s say you have water leaking through your roof and into your attic. The leak is so bad that it damages the wiring. Not only would you need someone to fix your roof and replace some of the drywall, you also need an electrician who will be able to do the necessary rewiring. Had you hired a national company to fix your problem, they may have lost time by looking for someone local to do the work. But with a local contractor, they’ll have better knowledge of who can do the necessary electrical repairs and give you a decent price for it.
Personal Ties to the Community
Hiring a national company to work on one of your renovation projects is almost like hiring customer service for a large company. You’re not likely to ever hear the same voice twice, and they’ll only want to know the issues you have with your home so they can jot down the work needed in the notes on your profile. But with a local roofing company, they’ll want to know the status of your project. You’ll be hearing the same voice every time you call, and even after it’s completed, they’ll still remember you and the renovation project you’ve hired them to complete. This is just one of the many personal ties a trusted local company has to the community, and it’s one of the best things that a local contractor can offer. You’ll really feel that your project matters to them and that you, as a customer, matter to them.
Service in Emergency Situations
When a severe storm suddenly passes over and your roof has sustained a significant amount of damage, you know that you need to have it repaired as soon as possible. This counts as an emergency, so any professional roofer should respond as soon as they possibly can. So in this type of situation, who do you think will get to you faster: a national company that has to go through a chain of procedures and people to reach their designated contractor or a local reliable contractor who’s only a phone call away? By the time a local contractor reaches your home and assesses the damage of your roof, you’ll probably still be waiting for a call back from the national company who’s only just about to hire a designated contractor for your work.
