How To Choose A Professional Roofing Contractor
Here are a few topics to take into consideration- solid, reliable information can make the difference between satisfaction and frustration
- All roofers should provide proof of liability and workers’ compensation coverage. Make sure the insurance will be in force during the entire time of your roofing project and that the insurance covers everyone who will be on the job site. (* if the roofing company is using sub-contractors, request for a copy of the insurance under which they are covered).
- Ask for a detailed line-item estimate so you can verify that you receive everything you have contracted for. (i.e. 30# felt vs. 15# felt)
- Look for an established licensed roofer. You can call your City or County Building Department to verify if the roofer is licensed.
- Ask to see the roofing company’s labor warranty and review it carefully to protect your rights. (*If the company is not local or has not been in business as long as their labor warranty extends, it may be a red flag towards their credibility and longevity).
- Don’t be pressured to sign a contract before asking for and checking references, and don’t pay any money up front to start a job.
- Use caution when dealing with roofers going door to door. They may be commissioned salesmen who use high pressure tactics. And they are probably “storm chasers” who will not be available later if you have warranty problems.
- A good rule of thumb for selecting a quality roofer is to ask your insurance professional, neighbors, family, roofing supply companies or roofing association for referrals.
- Be patient, do your research, and remember that price is only one component of the criteria for selecting a contractor.
