Qualities to Look For in a Home Improvement Contractor


Whether you’re installing new siding or replacing your old windows and doors, it’s important that you work with an experienced company. The success of your project, after all, depends on how sound your hiring choice is and how good their workmanship is.

Custom Installations, your local roofing and siding contractor, discusses what qualities to look for in an home improvement contractor.


The certifications your local contractor carries are proof that they can stand by the work they do. Additionally, certifications from manufacturers in the roofing and siding industry give your prospective roofer access to quality materials and hardware that you won’t find in your local hardware store.

At Custom Installations, we are proud to be one of the few GAF and CertainTeed roofers in Lake Forest. This gives us access to their complete selection of high-quality roofs backed by strong warranties. We also get continuing training, which we use to provide quality roofing services every time.

Local Presence

Hiring a local contractor isn’t just for convenience’s sake. When you work with a local company, you safeguard yourself from the dangers of working with storm chasers and fly-by-night companies. These out-of-towners don’t have your best interest in mind; in fact, they prioritize taking advantage of your insurance company instead of providing you with what you need.

On the other hand, our company has been serving homeowners like you since 1964. Homeowners trust and recommend us as we deliver quality work in every project we work on.

 BBB Accreditation

Finally, you should always work with a company that’s accredited by the Better Business Bureau. These businesses always have your best interests in mind and are dedicated to providing excellent workmanship and superior customer satisfaction.

At Custom Installations Inc, we have an A-plus rating with the BBB – the highest rating a company can receive. Whether you’re in need of metal roofing or require insurance restoration, we give you peace of mind that you’re working with a local contractor that has your best interests at heart.

Call us today at (847) 558-1967 to learn more about our services. We offer high-quality roofing services throughout Lake Forest, IL, and other parts of Illinois.
