CHOOSING THE RIGHT CONTRACTOR
Be careful about shopping for the lowest bid, you will get what you pay for.
- Ignore all the signs that pop up on street corners and all the fliers that suddenly show up on your front porch. For some reason, everybody becomes a roofer after a major storm. You don't want to use the roofer who is only a roofer after a storm. You want an experienced contractor who knows what he or she is doing.
- Call roofing contractors with yellow page listings who have been in business for several years.
- Ask your insurance Agent for recommendations; they care about you and your future business
- If you have used a roofer in the past or liked the roofer who put on the now-damaged roof, call that company.
- Ask your neighbors for recommendations, unless they used the guy who just printed a sign at the quick print shop and stuck it on the street corner!
- Pay attention to the companies your neighbors have chosen. Watch the crews work. Pay attention to how long it takes them to do the job and how well they clean up after they are finished. Look closely at the finished roof.
- Ask the contractor if the company is fully insured with Worker’s Comp and Liability. Don't take the salesperson's word for it, ask to see the certifications. You don't want to discover that you and your homeowners insurance are on the hook if one of the roofers gets injured on the job.
- Ask your local Chamber for a referral
- Use LOCAL, servicing you in the future is extremely important
- Watch for any deals that seem too good to be true…they usually are.
