Are you looking to get your roof repaired or replaced and having trouble choosing a trustworthy contractor? Take a look at these things you should look for before hiring someone to work on your home.
Experience – Make sure the contractor you hire is local and has the experience to back up what they are offering. Look for things like a permanent address and phone number as reputable companies should be able to provide these things no problem. Fully read through and understand any warranties that are offered and make sure you get a written proposal when they show you the estimate for the work
Licensing and Bonding – Be sure that the company you choose is fully licensed and bonded according to your state regulations.
Insurance – Don’t be held responsible for what could go on while the workers are on your roof. Each roofer should be able to show proof of worker’s compensation and general liability coverage. Things happen, and to avoid having to pay out for someone else’s mistake, this insurance is crucial.
References/Reviews– Asking for a list of references is great! It proves that the company has done good work around your area/neighborhood and can show how long they have been around. Keep in mind, however that companies are only going to give references that are positive. For a more general opinion, look at the company’s profile on review sites. Angie’s List, Google Reviews, and Kudzu are great places to start to see the good (and bad) about a contractor’s work. Also, the Better Business Bureau is a great tool to use to gain knowledge about a company’s business practices.
Credentials– Manufacturers often offer titles to companies that have a history of good work. Ask your contractor if they are approved or backed by any manufacturers (and you can also find out what kinds of products they are using this way). Ask if they belong to any associations like the NRCA (National Roofing Contractors Association). These industry associations can help prove a contractor’s reputability.
