Loveland, Colorado Roofers
Roofing contractors are professional businesses that offer roofing services. While a quick search of “roofers near me” or “roofing contractors near me” will turn up dozens of options, how do you know which roofer is the best? No one wants to hire a good roofer, they want to hire a great roofer. Just because a business is one of the largest roofing companies doesn’t mean they are the best or that they care about your personal needs.
So how do you pick the best roofer? The first thing to do is to verify your roofer. While some will simply do this with a search of AngiesList.com or some other website, the best roofing companies will be able to provide you with references that you can verify directly.
There are numerous roofing contractor directories available online to help you find a recommended roofer, but there is nothing that stands stronger than a local, long-standing company with positive reviews in your community.
Anchor Roofing LLC is made up of people that live and work in Larimer County. Often national companies will come through, set up shop and build hundreds of roofs – then they “pick up their shingle” so to speak and move on, leaving you with a worthless warranty and a shoddy roofing job.

Frequently Asked Questions About Hiring a Roofer
1). How do I find the best roofer?
With so much information available on the internet today, sometimes the most difficult part can be cutting through the static. Here are a few tips to help you find the best roofer for you.
- Seek Referrals: Do you have a friend who just used a roofing contractor? Perhaps someone at your church or place of business has had work done recently. People love to talk about the contractors they use, whether they are happy or upset with them. Referrals help you to be certain the company you use is walking their talk.
- Check Online Reviews: While reviews from friends and neighbors are important, such a small sample size can be skewed if, for instance, your neighbor’s grandson just started his own roofing company. Internet reviews are helpful because they aggregate a much larger number of former customers. If a company has 40 or 50 reviews and the vast majority of them are positive, then you have a pretty good idea of what kind of work they do.
- Find out about their warranty: This means more than just to ask if they have one. A warranty is only as good as the company behind it. In growing cities like Loveland, out of town contractors will come through and offer cheap prices on shoddy work, then close their business and move out of town long before the warranty is up. To avoid this kind of scam always look for local, longstanding businesses. Odds are, if your roofer makes their home on the front range, they will be there for you in the future.
- Always check their licensing and insurance: Any reputable roofer will happily provide you this information. It’s not an imposition to ask. In fact, it shows that you will only accept the best work, something a truly dedicated roofer knows they will be able to offer you.
2). What should I look for in a roofing contractor?
- Insurance: Under no circumstances should you ever hire someone to work on any part of your home if they are not fully insured. This is even more important with a job like roofing that comes with inherent risk. Ask to see their insurance paperwork before you let any tradesmen work at your home or business.
- Communication: You want to hire a roofer who can clearly communicate the work necessary, the price, and the amount of time and disruption. Having your roof worked on or replaced is a big undertaking, and you want to know that you and your roofer are on the same page every step of the way.
3). What questions should I ask a roofing company?
- Who owns the business?: Out of town roofing companies often still hire locals to build their roofs. Unfortunately the bar for these roofers is significantly lower than that of long standing local teams. Knowing if the owner is local or some businessman from Boston goes a long way towards knowing what kind of workmanship you are going to get.
- Can I view your portfolio?: A good roofer is a proud roofer. A good roofer wants you to see the work they have done. This question will not only lead to physical evidence of whether they do good work or not, but will also give you an idea of whether they are confident in their work or not.
- Who will be installing my roof?: Most local companies will have one of their roofers meet with you, but storm and population chasers often use a separate salesperson who is not even familiar with the work that is done. Make sure that the people selling you the roof are actually experienced in the business of roofing.
4). How do I get the best price on a roof?
- Get an inspection done: Know what is wrong with your roof and what needs to be done before you hire a roofer. This knowledge will help you to know whether the estimate given is fair or not.
- Make sure your roof isn’t still under warranty: Check through any files left by the previous owners to see who built the roof, when, and what the warranty was.
- Get multiple quotes: Like with any major purchase, choosing a roofer should be something you do cautiously. Never take the first quote.
- Watch out for financing schemes: If a roofing company knocks on your door with a “pay-nothing-now” financing plan that seems too good to be true, it probably is. Read the fine print and make sure you don’t mortgage your future.
5). How do I know when it is time to replace my roof?
- Know how old your roof is: If your roof is between 15-20 years, then there is a good chance you can get by with repairs. Knowing the age of your roof will go a long way toward knowing how much work it needs.
- Check wear and tear: Is your roof missing shingles? Is all of the granulation worn off? Are you seeing exposed wood?
- Check the attic: Often long before a drip starts coming through your ceiling, it begins with moisture on the joists. Check to see if any piece of the structure of the roof is wet or looks like it has been wet before.
- Get an inspection: If you are noticing any major wear and tear or leakage, the best course of action is to have it inspected.
6). Will my insurance pay for a new roof?
- Homeowners insurance generally covers only peril-related issues such as a tree falling through your home.
- If your roof is still within its warranty, then your best bet is to call the roofer who built it.
