How Do You Know Your Roofing Company is Reputable?

people shaking hands

In 0.62 seconds, an internet search engine can provide you with more than 20 names of Atlanta-area roofers. How do you select the one roofing company out of that list that is reliable, reputable and qualified to work on your home’s roof?


Some roofers come and go, chasing storms and outrunning insurance claims adjusters. Echols Roofing, family-owned and family-run, has been around since 1960. This means as local, reputable roofers, Echols Roofing will be available for warranty issues, annual maintenance and other calls for services from our neighbors and customers.


A roofing company is known by the company it keeps. Put another way, Echols Roofing is associated with, or certified by, some prestigious groups:

  • CertainTeed Master Shingle Applicator
  • GAF Master Elite Contractor
  • Home Reports Best Pick™ of Atlanta contractor for 18 consecutive years
  • Member of the Georgia Roofing and Sheet Metal Contractors Association


Just about every Atlanta-area roofer has a website, and most have testimonials pages. Look at the entries and see what words come up over and over. With Echols Roofing, for example, you see words like “honest,” “ethical,” “courteous,” “fine job.” With Echols Roofing, we can readily show you dozens of strong customer reviews.


A disreputable roofing company may be more interested in “churning” that building a customer base. “Churning” is picking up new customers, providing mediocre service, and moving on to pick up more new business without regard for the customers just wronged. Such a business does not expand; it replaces former, irate customers with new, soon-to-be irate ones.

Repeat business, or expanding from roofing to additions, windows, doors and decks, is not part of those contractors’ business model. Echols Roofing strives to build customers who return to us for more work for years to come. We value every job and want to increase our customer base, not reduce it.


Another great test of a reputable, reliable local roofing company is the gallery of completed work. Examine pictures and, if practical, visit previous work sites to appraise the roof installation in person.

This inspection, of course, must never extend to trespassing or, worst of all, attempting to climb any residential roof. Leave that level of hands-on to the professionals, please.
