Having your roof repaired or replaced can be an expensive job. Since it is a major investment, you want to choose a company that is reputable and will do a good job backed by a warranty. Here are some tips to help you choose the right roofing company.
Any contractor who does work on your roof should have workers compensation and liability insurance. Ask for proof of insurance and verify coverage with the insurance company.
Choose an established local company that has been operating in the area for several years. If you choose a company that operates in other parts of the country, you might have problems if you have a warranty issue.
Don’t choose a company solely based on price. Someone who installs roofs on the side can charge a lower price, but you might be getting poorer quality materials and workmanship and an inferior warranty. When comparing contracts, consider the type of materials used and the warranty.
Avoid roofing companies that have representatives knock on your door after a storm. These companies often use deceptive practices to make people think their roofs were damaged by storms and generate business. You should look for a company yourself and read reviews from past customers.
Ask for references from previous customers. Ask them how the workers performed their job, if they were satisfied with the work, if they experienced any problems, and, if so, how they were resolved.
Read the contract carefully. It should specify when the job will start and end, what materials will be used, when payments will be due, and details about the warranty.
The company’s representative should treat you with courtesy and respect. The company should return phone calls, provide any documentation and references you request, and answer all of your questions to your satisfaction.
