Why You Shouldn’t Hire an Out-of-Town Roofing Contractor


The success of your roof replacement significantly depends on the contractor you will hire. Experts recommend working with a local company, regardless of what home improvement you are planning. Professionals from your area can respond to your needs faster, and you can easily reach them if you have concerns about your project.

Out-of-Town Roofing Contractor

You must resist the urge to hire a cheaper out-of-town contractor at all costs. Here’s why.

Your Roof Could End Up Not Adhering to Local Codes

Local contractors are more knowledgeable about your local climate than companies from other areas. It means they know which materials work best for your location. They are also aware of local codes your home has to meet and if you need to obtain permits for your project. Building codes vary by town, meaning you could pay additional costs to correct mistakes made by a roofer unfamiliar with your local code.

It Might Be Hard to Contact Them After Your Project

Sometimes, issues happen after your roof installation. In this scenario, you must contact your roofer to address the problem. With an out-of-town contractor, there is the risk of not being able to reach the person after the job. On the other hand, you can call a local contractor or go to the office to let the pros know about your concern.

You Could Find It More Difficult to Have Permits Approved

Some home improvements require permits before you can execute them. A local roofer can get permits approved more easily than out-of-town contractors. By choosing companies from your area, your project will not only be more seamless, but you will also be supporting local businesses and economy.

We had Bone Dry do masonry, roofing & gutter for us. Everyone we dealt with was professional, polite & on time. We were actually amazed how fast they did the roof & it looked great. Actually everything looked great

The experience of working with all of the folks at Bone Dry Roofing was top notch. Detailed photos and videos were provided for the initial inspection of the roof and then multiple photos were provided throughout the installation. I live in another state and was very well pleased working with them long distance. They made it very easy and stress free. The shingle roof - and all new decking - was replaced in less than 7 hours. Other teams of theirs will be back to replace the b pipe and the gutters next week.
