Buying a new roof for your home is one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make. That’s why, as well as choosing the best roofing products, it is important that you try and choose the right roofing contractor.
Here are some useful tips to consider when looking for a quality roofing contractor.
Be wary of scam roofing contractors. Check if the contractor has a permanent physical address, telephone number, as well as tax identification number. Also check if the contractor is licensed locally and ask for a list of clients you may contact for references.
Find a contractor that’s trained and qualified in installing your type of roof. Ask roofing contractors about the roofing systems they’re trained and qualified to install. According to the BBB (better business bureau), a reputable contractor should be ready to give you their credentials for scrutiny.
Make sure the roofing company you consider has general liability insurance and its workers are also insured. This will ensure that your property is protected from accidental damage and workers are protected against injuries.
Don’t pay the whole balance of installing the new roof up front. This applies to all large projects. Do not sign the contract if your contractor insists on this. Ask the contractor if you can pay a deposit and then clear the balance in installments. You can also ask for a payment schedule that goes with the work done.
Be sure to ask for a detailed, written estimate and full description of the job that will be done. Know the number of workers who will work on your project, how long it will take and the name of the supervisor of your project.
