When you are looking for electrical equipment, gaming consoles, cell phones, etc., the obvious strategy is to opt for the big players. For many homeowners, it makes sense to apply the same logic to choosing a roofing contractor. The thinking is the larger the company, the better the craftsmanship. 

However, this is not necessarily true. You may actually find working with a large construction company becomes a nightmare. There are a number of reasons a smaller contractor is a better option for your roofing project. 

Customer Commitment

Whether you are in need of a roof inspection, general maintenance and repairs, or roof replacement, you want to know you can rely on your contractor. Large roofing companies typically cater to an equally large number of customers. This can result in several issues when it comes to completing the work at your premises. 

First of all, there is a risk the contractor you are working with will take an impersonal approach. While you are not likely to add each other on social media, communication and rapport is important. You want to know your contractor is passionate about completing the work you have requested. If a company is juggling multiple customer projects, forging close working relationships is not always a priority. 

Time Management

If a large roofing contractor takes on a lot of projects at the same time, they need to prioritize their time and may not meet time deadlines. This can cost you in a number of ways, including incurring financial penalties on loans or paying additional rent for another property while work is ongoing. With a reliable smaller contractor, you know your project is the main priority and work will be completely according to the agreed schedule.
