Here are some tips to choosing a roofing contractor:
- Insurance is a must.
First and foremost, make sure your contractor has worker’s compensation and liability insurance. Request certificates and call the insurance carrier to verify they are covered and everything is up-to-date. This keeps all bids equal, knowing that part of the work of the roof and service being provided is protected by a valid insurance company.
- Choose someone local.
Make sure you choose a local company, not a company just operating locally. But make sure they have an established local business and a good reputation in the community.
- Price isn’t everything.
Don’t’ choose a company solely based on price. If the price is too low, it is a red flag. Cheap prices drive down the market, and anyone with overhead and proper insurance knows they need to charge to cover costs. And ultimately, you get what you pay for.
- Steer clear of storm chasers.
Stay away from contractors or roofers who go door-to-door. Some of these people go around after a storm claiming you have roof damage and offer to do the work for you. If you want to hire a contractor, pick someone via referral or advertisement.
- Time and money.
You should remain in control of your time and money. Don’t pay for unfinished work. Make sure you are completely happy with the work, and also make sure the terms of payment were discussed beforehand. Make sure you ask how long the work will take, and how big the crew doing the work will be. You want to keep on top of everything happening.
- Communication is key.
Do they communicate? Do they return your calls? Did they follow up on any paper work you asked them to send to you? If you answered “no” to any or all of these questions, they are not reliable. The most important part of a project is communication. If they can’t communicate with you in the planning process, things will just get worse.
