How to Choose a Roofing Contractor
When you make the decision that it is time to replace or repair your roof, your first step is selecting a roofing contractor that is right for you. Selecting the right roofing contractor will give you peace of mind in knowing you have chosen a reliable contractor that will give you the roof your home needs! Unfortunately, there are a number of external factors that can make this step extremely overwhelming. Having a guideline for choosing a contractor can make this step easier:
Choose a local contractor – Looking at business location is a great way to determine the type of service you will be getting. If you choose a contractor with an office nearby, you are likely to receive better service and quicker response time!
Know the history of your contractor – When choosing a contractor, make sure they are an established business. You can do this by researching business information including facts, services, fees, and warranties. And by checking there on line reputation and reviews.
Your contractor should have insurance – One of the most important factors in choosing a qualified contractor should be whether they have the appropriate licenses. Ask your potential contractor whether they carry liability insurance and worker’s compensation insurance. This is extremely important because if a worker is injured on your property and the contractor does not have insurance, you might be held liable for all costs.
Have a detailed written proposal – Your roofing contractor should provide you with a written contract detailing the basics of your agreement. This way there is no misunderstanding between you and your contractor. The proposal details should include the work you need done, cost of work, warranty included, scheduling, and terms of payment.
Ask questions – The key to any relationship is communication. The same goes for business relationships. You cannot hire the best roofing contractor simply by comparing prices. Speaking to the business is the best way to evaluate your options, get your questions answered and get a feel for whether this is the right contractor for you!
