6 Tips to Hire the Perfect Roofing Contractor

by Rohit on May 1, 2018

Building a roof for your house in just a one-time thing and in some cases can need repairing but that’s also not so often. This can lead to a lot of confusion while choosing a roofing contractor since hardly anyone has a lot of experience in selecting the perfect roofing contractors. Do not hurry in choosing one since this is something you will be doing only a couple of times in your lifetime and needs to be done perfectly. Also, because the question here is of security and perfection will ensure your safety. Here are a few tips to guide you through the journey.

  1. Check for Reputation

There could be many roofing contractors around your locality who might be popular. The idea here is not to just hold on to someone who can get the job done rather it is to first see the authenticity of the person doing it. Look at their previous projects and check them up on the internet for reviews and feedbacks. Get a business card or visit their regional office to get an idea of how genuine their claims are.

  1. Make Sure of Insurance

Roofing contractors cannot work without a worker’s compensation and liability insurance which is issued to the organisation as an approval. Ask them for this certificate before they begin work on your roof. This will also make sure that the work being done on your roof and the money you are spending for it is protected and under the coverage of an insurance. They also need to have a safety norms certification which they will have to keep in mind while building the roof for the safety of people inside the house.

  1. Contractor Should Be Established

Well, this might seem like one of the obvious cases while looking for a roofing contractor, in fact, while looking for any brand to get anything done. It is because most roofs come with a warranty of around half a decade or more depending on what you chose for. It is also plausible that the contractor you chose has shut down his office or for some other reason cannot cover the warranty issues because they are no more in the business. So, to make sure you don’t have to spend an extra ton of money on repairs once you are done and dusted with the job.

  1. Check Pricing Wisely

There is going to be tough competition in the market with people offering very low prices to garner more and more customers. There are also high chances that the ones who are offering very low prices do not have the required certification and documentation ready with them. Ask the contractor to give you a quotation to tell you about the cost of a new roof. A bill split up of everything that you are being charged for. Read all documents and forms before you sign them.

  1. Beware of Storm Chasers

It is very normal that during a storm your roof might face a lot of dentures and leaks and need a lot of repairing. Storm chasers are quick to grab such opportunities and pay a visit to your house and tell you that you have storm damages that you may or may not have. Confirm it with your agent and then go ahead with the process if required.

  1. Shortlist Before Choosing

This is a common trick to be followed while selecting anything important and the same trick applies here. Select a few top ones who match the criteria mentioned above and find their way onto your shortlisted ones. Once you have the best ones shortlisted you can go ahead with the ones that can offer you the best price and an impressive service. You can also check for the one with the best ratings.

Now that you an idea about how to proceed while selecting the perfect roofing contractor for yourself to be aware of the process involved and do your homework. People can take advantage of those who do not know anything but can’t really misguide the knowledgeable.
