After the large storms – homeowners still have contractors from all over the country knocking on their doors. While news sources and online experts warn against hiring contractors from outside Minnesota, some homeowners still don’t take the time to fully vet where their contractors are from. Or worse, they may fall for discounting practices, thinking the lower price justifies a hasty decision. Here are four reasons why taking 20 minutes to investigate your roofing contractor and choosing a local company such as Trinity Exteriors will save you money and headaches in the long run.
Local Contractors Have Better Supplier/Crew Relationships
Over the years it takes to build a local business, local contractors have formed strong bonds with their suppliers, and better systems for easing the hassles associated with renovation projects. Local contractors know which supplier’s quality materials from have trusted manufacturers and can secure the materials on-time for homeowners.
Local Contractors Are Members of Your Community
Local contractors rely upon homeowners in their service area for reviews and referrals, and bad word of mouth can completely put them out of business. Contractors setting up temporary shop for the season don’t feel this pressure to exceed client expectations, because they may not be up here in Montana for a few years.
Support the Local Economy
According to a Chicago study for every $100 spent at a local business, $68 remain in the community, versus only $43 for larger companies with many locations. Not only does this benefit the community, but local businesses often give back to residents through volunteering and sponsorship.
Local Companies Honor Repairs & Warranties
One of the most important reasons to hire a local siding contractor is their ability for ongoing repairs and warranties. It often happens we hear of roofing contractors in Kansas or Texas who were in the Twin Cities for one summer of storms so when their homeowners start having trouble with their roofs, the contractors can’t make the 8- to 12-hour drive for a 30-minute repair. we consistently take care of previous customer repairs and honors their workmanship warranties.
