Your roof is a huge investment. Make sure you do your homework before choosing a roofing contractor. You don't want to cut corners when it comes to protecting your home and your family.
There are several factors to consider when it comes to choosing the right roofing contractor. Choosing a contractor from your community is a good idea because they are familiar with the local rules and code regulations. Also, word of mouth from people living in your community that has had a good experience with a roofing contractor is important.
Better Business Bureau is a great place to look for reputable roofing contractors. Contractors are required to maintain a satisfactory score in order to retain their certification on BBB.
Find a contractor that offers not only a manufactures warranty but also a workmanship warranty.
Make sure the contractor you hire has proper licensing and insurance. The contractor should be able to provide you with a copy of his insurance showing that all employees and subcontractors are covered. If an employee were to get injured on your property while working on your roof and the contractor does not have insurance to cover that employee, this could lead to litigation between you, the homeowner, and the contractor.
If you have roof damage that your insurance company has agreed to cover, make sure you as the homeowner are the one to file the claim and follow the correct process to have the insurance company pay to replace your roof. A roofing contractor can lend a hand and provide the insurance company with photos of the damage. Watch out for contractors that pressure you into signing a contract before the insurance company has given you an estimate of the damage.
Find a contractor that will take the time to explain everything in detail so that you understand the whole process of the roof installation and what to expect. Finding the right roofing contractor can take time, but going with one that is honest and puts your needs first is a must.
