How do you find the right roofing contractor? Your roof is one of the most vital features of protecting your home from inclement weather and storms. We have some simple tips on how to find the right roofing contractor for one of your biggest financial investments. The most important on our list is going with a local contractor. Storm chasers are here today and gone tomorrow. They can be almost impossible to find after the job is over. What good is a company warranty if you can’t get ahold of them? The news is filled constantly with customers being ripped off, having shoddy work done or incomplete jobs. A local contractor will also know the rules and code regulations for your county.
The second tip – never pay for the job in full upfront and always get a FREE estimate in writing. No contractor should charge you for the bid to do the job. Be aware of companies claiming to be able to do the work without you paying your insurance deductible! This is fraud and could get you in trouble.
Rounding out the top 3 is to check to make sure the contractor has the proper licensing and insurance. While most states require licensing and insurance for roof workers, some companies will cut corners to save money by either being uninsured or underinsured. This can lead to costly litigation for you if someone was to get hurt while working on your property.
When making the final decision to go with roofing contractor, get local referrals and check with online review sites like the Better Business Bureau. Expect every company to have a complaint against them, that’s just the nature of doing business today, but multiple negative reviews should raise red flags! We have done thousands of roofs and are proud of our online reviews and A+ BBB rating.
