What is the best way to choose a roofing company in Columbia?
Roofing companies in Columbia seem to fall into several categories. Many of the companies found in a Google search are construction companies who do roofing. These companies primarily do construction and remodeling. Some roofers are siding and gutter companies or window replacement companies who also do roofing repair or replacement. There are roofing companies that are satellite branches to construction companies based in other cities. Many of these companies do both commercial and residential roofing.
The number of years the company has been in business varies greatly. Then there are the locally-owned and operated roofing companies, like Joye Roofing, which are family owned who have been in business for many years.
Another difference found in researching roofing companies was the way they assess their customers' needs. Some companies will offer a free estimate before doing any work. Other companies will go even further and offer a free roof inspection. Some companies show warranties for their work, others do not.
Some companies offer multiple business ratings and recommendations. Others may show photographs of their work along with past customers' recommendations. Some companies show that they are fully licensed, bonded, and insured, others do not show this information.
Below are some of the roofing companies found for the Columbia area along with some basic information about each.
