Roofing repair or replacement can seem daunting, and picking the right contractor for the job can seem even more intimidating – but it doesn’t have to be.
Here are some tips to help you choose the right contractor for the job and get the best value for your money.
They Must Be Insured
Any quality roofing contractor should carry both worker’s compensation and liability insurance coverage. Before making your selection, ask to see proof of both and call the insurance company to confirm they are valid and up-to-date.
When you choose a local contractor, you not only receive a level of customer service that a national brand can’t match, but you also get to work with people who have an established reputation in the community.
For people who have used contractors from out of state, it isn’t unheard of to have that company move or completely vanish when a warranty claim needs to be made. It is easy for a company to provide a piece of paper warrantying your roof, but that is only as good as the reputation of the company itself.
Steer Clear of Opportunistic Contractors
As is with most people that go door-to-door trying to sell things, you should stay away of roofing contractors that come to you claiming they “were in your neighborhood.” Contractors like this are just canvassing and looking for somebody to sell to.
If approached by a contractor like this, don’t be afraid to call your insurance agent for a recommendation. Many opportunistic contractors will try and convince you that you have storm damage to your roof, even if that isn’t the case, and will want you to sign a letter of intent to lock you into a deal. Don’t fall for it.
