Having work done on your roof is always a stressful experience. Apart from the expense, there’s the noise and mess that’s an inevitable part of any construction project. You have workers on your property all day, and, during the process, your home could be exposed and vulnerable to the elements.
Add to all this the possibility of something going wrong and it’s no wonder many homeowners are hesitant to get work done.
However, neglecting your roof is not an option, which is why you need to know how to choose the best people for the job.
So are all roofing companies the same? The answer is a definite NO! The differences can be huge, making it very hard to know you’re hiring a dependable contractor.
The first step in choosing the best is to make sure any company you talk to can answer yes to these three questions before asking them for a quote:
Do they have Licensing and Insurance?
Never hire a contractor who can’t produce a valid residential builders license and proof of adequate liability and workers insurance. Although their quote might be a lot cheaper than others, there is no guarantee of the quality of work, and you’ll be left to pick up the tab, including medical expenses for injured workers, if there are any accidents.
Can they provide Warranties?
A good contractor will have confidence in their work and be willing to offer both a materials warranty and a workmanship warranty in writing.
Can you contact their referrals?
Satisfied customers are the best advertising, and any company that does quality work will be happy to put you in touch with past clients who will recommend them.
You can be sure that any company who answers yes to the three questions above is an established business and not some ”Fly-by-night” operation, but there are still major differences even among reputable operators.
