The decision to install a new roof is a big one. It’s a massive project, both in terms of costs and in the sheer scale. So you want to work with someone that you can trust, which can be more complicated than it seems.
When you first start looking for a roofing contractor, you’ll quickly find that you can work with a large national company or with smaller, local companies. While large companies can offer you better prices, there are still many reasons you should work with a local roofing contractor.
Knowledge of Local Regulations and Codes
Arizona has its own specific set of codes and regulations when it comes to building projects. Many large companies work in multiple states, which means they don’t have the time to grasp the nuances of local regulations. Sure, they’ll have a broad understanding of the basics, but they won’t know them as well as a local contractor.
Any local contractor that’s worked in Arizona won’t even have to think about the codes and regulations, because they’re so ingrained. This means that a local contractor will often work faster since we won’t have to refer to a cheat sheet every couple of days. Instead, we can focus on your particular needs and how to address them.
Commitment to the Local Community
A local contractor wants to take care of their neighborhood, which adds a certain layer of pride and dedication to our work. Local contractors are personally invested in the job since they’ll be driving by the results of their work regularly. Hiring local also means the contractor will know the best roofing products for your Arizona home!
Easier to Contact
Calling a large multi-state company will often get you redirected to a call center, which can be incredibly frustrating, especially if you have an emergency. While roofs can stand for decades with little intervention, you may find yourself needing a roofer in a hurry. At this point, it’s much easier to get in touch with a local roofer that can be there within an hour.
Local contractors want to provide personalized service. Since we’ve got a much smaller team of people working for us, we can take the time to form relationships with our clients.
We’ll get to know you, and your roof, which makes getting personalized service when you need a roofing contractor again. We’ll remember what your needs were and will tailor our solutions accordingly.
Working with a local contractor is a natural choice to make if you’re sick of talking to chat-bots or call centers across the world.
Word of Mouth Reviews
Local contractors rely heavily on word of mouth. Unlike large national companies, we live and die by what locals think of our service. We have a strong incentive to put the customer first, much more so than larger companies. That’s why you can expect excellent service and complete satisfaction on any project we undertake.
Working with a local contractor offers several important benefits that you won’t get with a larger chain. Find out what it feels like to work with someone that cares and get in touch with us at Polaris Roofing today!
