How to Find the Right Roofing Contractor
Steps for Choosing the Best Roofing Contractor
Bad roofing can spell disaster for the health and safety of your home and loved ones. Improper installation or haphazard repairs will cost you again and again. This is why roof repairs and new installations should be performed by the right contractor. But how do you find the right contractor for the job?
Research Your Options
Try to come up with a list of two or three roofing companies. All contractors should be licensed, insured, and experienced. How long has the company been in business? Have they worked on a home like yours before? Check their website for reviews and pictures of past work.
Ask for Referrals
If you have friends, neighbors, or family members who have had a roof replacement or repair, ask them for advice. Find out what contractors they used and what they liked or disliked about them. Happy clients are more likely to make recommendations.
Meet With the Contractor
Set up appointments with the contractors to discuss your project. A quality contracting team can estimate how much time and labor they will have to put into a project. They can also discuss what types of roofing materials they may use. When meeting with the contractors, ask yourself if they seem professional, you should feel comfortable asking questions.
Assess the Contract
It is your home, so make sure that you feel at ease with your decision. Do not let a contractor start a project until you sign a contract. The contract should detail everything about the job. Don’t forget the warranty, workmanship guarantees, materials, or any other aspect of the project. Payment amounts and the timetable should also be included in the contract.
