El Paso has seen a lot of rain this year and there may be a few more days of rain left in the summer. So getting a roofer out to prepare for the next storm may be hard since they are busy working on homes of people who were affected by the recent rain. I know because I am having my roof repaired right now.
The current repairs are not the first time I have had my roof repaired. This is actually the third time in about five or six years.
“It's with those sustained rain for a prolonged period of time where small leaks will actually appear under the, you'll be able to see them inside the home with the sheetrock bubbling and having damage and stains on the ceilings,” said Manuel Ramirez from Done Right Roofing and Construction.
Ramirez recommends having your roof inspected every year. He said that sealants should be reapplied every two to three years. This helps prevent seeing bigger issues when a rainstorm does come.
In my experience, I have worked with some good roofers and some bad roofers. I still don’t know if I have found the right roofer. After doing some research, I came across several lists of the best roofers in the city.
Manuel Ramirez said to look for roofers who are licensed, bonded, and insured.
The top 7 roofers by Yelp
Even though Yelp lists the top 10, I only listed seven. You should look at the reviews from past customers before contacting a roofing company. One of the top Yelp listings for a roofer had a complaint from a customer that the roofer made a big deal about returning after making recent repairs on a home. Included are 7 out of the 10 recommended roofers. You can see the entire list here.
This list will include roofers who had exceptional ratings. Use your best judgment when you hire a roofer.
El Paso Better Business Bureau
The El Paso Better Business Bureau lists 185 roofing companies that had a 5-star rating which you can see here.
The Better Business Bureau provides another list of roofers to find who you need for your home.
Not every roofing company is listed on the Better Business Bureau. Companies that are listed go through the agency’s process and the Better Business Bureau accreditation. They rate companies from A+ (highest) to F (lowest). Companies that don’t meet the Better Business Bureau’s criteria will not get listed.
