Local customers rate local roofing companies
Researchers at Checkbook.org asked thousands of local consumers for feedback, compliments and complaints about the contractors who installed or repaired their roofs.
Some companies get glowing ratings. Others get hammered with complaints of poor advice, poor service and poor quality of work.
Of the 58 companies named by local customers in the Puget Sound region, only 25 got Checkbook's top ratings for quality.
Even if you get names from a friend or a free contractor referral service, you still have to do your homework to make sure you get the quality you expect. Always verify registration and bonding and check for complaints, violations and claims against their insurance. Follow up on customer references and ask lots of questions. And never pay all the money up front.
Checkbook.org is a subscriber-based, non-profit rating and education service to help you make smarter choices. As a courtesy to KOMO viewers, the full Checkbook report on roofing company ratings will be available through this website until September 2017.
