Your roof is one of the most important factors that protects you, your family and your valuables from the outside elements. If you have a faulty roofing system you risk damages to the inside of your home and all of your property which is why you need to make sure you get roofing contractors who understands the type of roofing system for the climate you live in.
Follow these Tips for Selecting A Great Roofing Contractor:
1.) Check with the Better Business Bureau or the local Chamber of Commerce to get a list of their recommended roofing contractors. You can be assured these businesses have been researched and reviewed to make sure they have meet all licensing and insurance compliance's.
2.) Ask the potential roofing contractors you are interviewing if they have insurance and the proper licenses for your area. You do not want to hire someone who could be a risk to you. If something were to happen to your home or the contractors during the project, you could be subject to paying for it yourself.
3.) Speak to the actual roofers of your project and make sure you are comfortable with them. A roofing project usually takes the better part of a week if not longer so if you are not comfortable with the people who will be working on your roofing project, you will worry about them while they are on your property.
4.) Make sure you can see the complete written proposal for your project. There is nothing worse than getting an estimate for a job and planning on budgeting and then afterwords have your contractor come to you with a much higher invoice. To save on future headaches, agree on a price before the project even gets started.
5.) The last thing you will want to do before committing is find out how long of a warranty the roofing contractors are offing. Not only do you want a warranty on the roofing materials but you want to make sure the contractors work has a warranty on it as well. If the contractor did not do a good job, you do not want to pay them or someone else to fix their errors a few years down the road.
