How to Find the Right Roof Contractor
The roof of a house has been used for years in many analogies, all with an underlying meaning of “security” or a feeling of “home.” When the time comes to repair that protective layer, or worse, replace your roof entirely, it’s essential to choose a roofing contractor that you can trust.
The roofing team at Pinnacle Roofing and Restoration care about your property and the quality of their work – and it shows! From repairing simple roof problems right away to commercial roofing needs and emergency roofing repairs due to storm damage, Pinnacle’s roofing and restoration pros are ready to help you!
What services does a roofing contractor offer?
Roofing services vary from contractor to company. When considering a roofing contractor for your project, ask the top contenders you’re interested in working with what services they offer.

What makes a good roofing contractor?
With such an important part of your life needing attention, your roof is not the spot to cut corners or risk “getting what you paid for” by going with the lowest bid you can find. Often, the company’s established pricing will reflect proper insurance and a quality guarantee that has historically created the best results and the knowledge that your home will be protected.
Experience and Insurance
Whether you need minor repairs or a total roof replacement, it’s important to choose a roofing contractor that you can trust. They should have proper worker’s compensation and liability insurance to cover any unexpected obstacles or incidents that may arise. Beware of the door-to-door contractors that show up after a big storm. While they may have an alluring price point, it might come with some hidden costs that can get out of control.
Another plus in choosing a roofing contractor is their experience in the roofing industry and the products, regulations, and overall knowledge of your area. Here at Pinnacle Roofing and Restoration, you’ll find a family-owned and operated business with a local team of Memphians committed to providing satisfying results. If you’ve been searching for a local roofing company with a trusted track record, we’re here to help!
References and Reviews
Chances are you know someone in your personal circles that have had some sort of roofing work done recently. Replacing a new roof is a big deal, and whether it goes well or becomes more than you signed up for, you are going to tell people. Asking friends and family is one of the best ways to find recommendations for a trustworthy roofing contractor. Be sure to look into any references the roofing contractor provides, as this can confirm their accreditation and give you a feel for their process and craftsmanship.
There are many websites like NextDoor, HomeAdvisor, and Angi that allow you to read reviews of local companies that have been used in your area by people in your community. That established relationship with your community can give you some comfort as you consider your options.

“Brandon and his crew are professional and kind, a combination not always found in the service industry. He replaced my roof last year and put in roof vents which we previously had been lacking. What a huge difference it all made! No more unbearable summer attic temps, my new roof look great and has withstood all the spring storms! An added bonus, their clean up process exceeded my expectations.” – S. Hill
“Last fall, I had a major leak develop in my roof during a storm. I looked up roofers and decided to award the work to Pinnacle Roofing. And I was not disappointed. He was out within a short period of time from calling and put a tarp over the area in the rain. His workers were respectful and speedy. I would not hesitate to do business with them again.” J. Adelman
Expectations Communicated Clearly
No matter how big or small your roofing needs may be, you will have expectations. Be sure to clearly communicate what you expect upfront to address any discrepancies ahead of time. Insurance, materials, costs, timeline are all critical factors to a job well done, so don’t hesitate to ask for clarification when you aren’t sure and get things in writing for added protection on both sides.
Questions to ask your Roofing Contractor
“How long have you been in business?” – The right roofing contractor for your job will have experience in your area and with your roofing type with past roofs to show for it, either through photos on their website or through references of past roofing projects like yours.
“What are your safety protocols for your workers and my family and home?” – The right roofing contractor for your job will have the appropriate insurance to cover their workers and your property. They will take proper caution with materials and tools and will have a straightforward clean-up process that ensures your family is safe not just under the roof but in the areas around your home as expected.
“How long will my roofing project take?” – Depending on the size of your roofing job, it could be a simple fix, or it could take some time for materials to come in, the size of the crew needed could cause delays, or the project may get interrupted. Getting clarification upfront on what to expect can help you navigate your project a little better.
