Making the decision to replace your roof can be a large financial commitment. Knowing that you’ve chosen a roofing company that you can trust with your home is a must. You want to know that your roofing project was done correctly, timely, and honestly. Consider these three points when picking a roofing company to replace your roof.
Insured and Licenced
The first thing you should always check when looking for a roofing company is whether they are insured and licenced. Every state has different standards for licensing and required insurance, but at a minimum a contractor should have both liability and workers’ compensation insurance. They should also be able to present you with a business licence. Check your local requirements and make sure your roofing company has the correct certifications.
After a storm, it can be common for roofing companies to go door to door saying, “We were in the neighborhood,” and offer free inspections. This is not the best way to go about selecting a roofing company. Choose a local company with good reviews. This way it is easy to follow up with them if there are any problems and you know they’re going to be around for the long haul.
Check the Portfolio
Much like artists, roofing companies have a portfolio of completed projects. Ask to see this portfolio and look through their work. Also, you should always feel free to ask for client referrals and follow up with them. This will give you a good idea on how the company operates, treats their customers, and what their product looks like.
