When natural calamities, such as storms and tornadoes occur, the roof is probably the number one part of your home that incurs the most damages. And in this case, you would need the assistance of roofers.

While it is true that you will never run out of options when it comes to roofing companies, you also have to ensure that you are hiring the best one.

But how do you determine the right contractor for the job? You have to check the reviews and testimonials. You can easily do that by simply going online.

Here are the 5 best sites where you can find reviews on different roofing companies:

1.     Better Business Bureau (www.bbb.org)

If you are in the United States, Canada, or Mexico, then this is probably the most reliable website that you can check if you want to see the rating of the different roofing contractors in your area. All you have to do is to go to the website, select the FIND YOUR BBB tab, input your zip code or city and state, and you will be redirected to the page where you can search for local businesses.

2.     Yelp (www.yelp.com)

Using this website to see the reviews is also pretty straightforward. On “FIND”, simply type in the service that you are looking for. You also have to enter your location under “NEAR” to localize your search. After this, you will have a list of the roofers in your place as well as the reviews on them.

3.     Home Advisor (www.homeadvisor.com)

Just like Yelp, all you have to do is to specify the services that you need and your location. You will then be given a list of the businesses near your residence with their reviews and ratings.

4.     Angie’s List (www.angieslist.com)

This one right here is another free way to search for highly-rated professional roofing contractors. Just read the real reviews on them and their grades so you will see which one is the best.

5.     Company’s Website

The roofing company’s website is a great place where you can find the testimonials of their previous clients too.
