Afraid of Roofing Scams? Here’s How to Choose a Qualified Roofer

A quick Google search reveals hundreds of options for homeowners in need of a new roof or roof repairs in Wisconsin. HUNDREDS!! And that’s just from Google. It’s safe to assume that thoroughly vetting a qualified roofer can seem like a part-time job. 

As a homeowner, you don’t want to choose just anyone to work on your home. After all, we’ve all heard the stories of shoddy workmanship, stolen money, etc. from storm chasers and non-local roofing companies. 

To help make your job easier, we’ve put together a list of the top five most important things to look for when choosing a roofing company! Number four on the list may surprise you! 

1. Get Local Referrals 

You’re less likely to be scammed or have issues when working with someone local to the community. Local contractors are familiar with the local rules and code regulations. They’re more likely to have relationships with the crew and suppliers in the area. If you can’t get a local referral, check out our reviews to verify us! 

2. Look For Manufacturer Designations

A manufacturer designation is considered an honor because contractors must pass specific minimum requirements to be factory certified. Durashield is proudly recognized as an Owens Corning Preferred Contractor and a DaVinci Roofscapes Masterpiece Installer, only acknowledged to those who demonstrate superior installation skills.

3. Check Better Business Bureau Ratings

Check contractors on the BBB website and check their scores. Sometimes contractors will come by right after a storm, and the BBB is a way to verify who is legitimate. It’s best to steer clear of contractors if they do not exist on Check out our A+ rating on BBB here! 

4. Make Sure You’ve Got Options

A contractor who doesn’t offer you different shingle options is not working in your best interest. The style and color of the shingles will directly affect your home and its value, so it’s crucial to pick the right ones for your home. At Durashield, we provide the best options from Owens Corning, Davinci, and more!
