Find a roofing expert
One of the toughest specialists to source is a roofing expert. Be it for repairs or for doing a roof from scratch, this is a serious area of specialisation and a space in which you definitely don’t want to make mistake and hire the wrong home pro. It is also a tough area to find somebody whose work you like.
So how do you find the right person or team to take care of the roof of your house or building? It is not always easy. Here are some tips to help you search for and vet the credentials of roofing home pros.
Align with the experts
Remember that you are not the first person to be looking for a roofer. Many have gone before you and there are specialist platforms like ours that are designed to find you the perfect person or people for your job. The stated mission of the Fix Forward team is ‘to connect you to skilled, independent home pros, who we mentor and empower to deliver professional services with purpose.’
In short, ours is a site that vets and trains and affords a profile to independent roofers and other home pros who are looking to make it in their chosen field.
The process is really simple as well. Complete the online questionnaire and almost instantly you will be connected with relevant people for the job based on your location and requirements. It really could not be much easier.
Roofing home pro hire pointers
Start with Google and search for roofing home pros or roofers. Google is designed to give you the most relevant answers to you based on your search criteria and location. So it should turn up operators in your area.
It goes without saying that it is only going to return results of companies who have websites, so there might be a few old-school people who haven’t taken their business online yet – but the reality is those people will be few and far between.
Spend some time perusing some of the websites and look out for things like images of their work and referrals from happy clients. Look to see when they were founded and who currently owns them. There is a lot of information that can be gleaned from a website and you should milk it for all that it is worth.
Be aware at all times that a website is a marketing tool that has been produced by the company to promote itself – so it will be biased – but that is okay. Much like a roof a website is also something that needs maintenance and attention to detail. If the website is old and out-of-date and looks as though it hasn’t seen much love in recent times, then you should ask yourself if you are okay with these people taking care of your roof.
Extra roof home pro info
The original social media platform is home to almost three billion people. Aside from individual pages there are many community groups and corporate pages. Community pages are a great place to source information. Find a relevant community group (there will almost certainly be one for the suburb you live in) and ask for recommendations.
This is a super useful way of finding near neighbours who have gone through the process that you are about to embark on. Take to heart what they say and speak to those people they recommend. Also don’t be afraid to ask what could have been done better.
What is worth remembering is that there will be at least one dissatisfied client for almost every home pro, so you are going to get some negative reports if you ask. The key is not to look at individual negative responses, but rather to look for trends and patterns.

What clients say about our home pros
Moffat, the painter we used from Fix Forward, did a great job. He was good natured and punctual and his labourers even helped me out with my guttering.
This was a great way to find a professional, reliable tradesman. Herbet communicated well and arrived on time as arranged. I can really suggest him and his team as good painters. Thank you!
It was very easy to use the Fix Forward platform and both contractors were great. They did what they said they would, when they would and demonstrated loads of initiative.
I contacted Fix Forward between Christmas and New Year, right in the middle of the builder's holiday but they had someone available to assist a couple of days later. The quote was very reasonable and the gate is standing as it should once again.
