A roofing contractor is an important person in your roof’s life. It is vital to select an experienced contractor who can take good care of your roof so that it outlives its lifespan. Knowing the right roofer for the job is a challenging and confusing affair. Below are simple tips that help you select a roofer that will fit your needs as a homeowner.
Insurance and Licensing
It is paramount that you verify that the contractor you select has all the necessary licensing up to date and they are fully insured. The Frisco roofing company should have insurance for all their employees and subcontractors. They should provide this insurance certificate upon request. They should have both the workman’s compensation and general liability insurance.
Ensure you choose a local company. There is a reduced chance of potential issues or scams when you choose a contractor from around your area. Local not only means that they should be operating locally at the moment, but that they have established a reputation in the community.
Get it in Writing
Don’t accept verbal agreements and vague estimations. A good roofer will have a contract or a proposal in writing ready for you to review. They will have all aspects of the project on paper; from the length of the job from start to finish, the procedure, the materials needed as well as what it will cost you.
Manufacturer certifications are considered a badge of honor since the contractor will usually have to pass minimum, rigorous requirements to be certified. This may even be important to you in terms of making claims on your warranty as some manufacturers tend to decline claims for roofs that have not been installed by a roofer they have certified.
Don’t Depend on Price Too Much
You should never choose a company based on the price. Customers who are thinking only of the price may end up spending more to fix problems that would have been covered under a workmanship guarantee by a reputable, established roofing company.
Improve Your Communication
When working with a roofer, it is important for them to stay in contact with you to update on the progress of the job and to answer any questions you might have. If the roofer is not returning your calls and they are always late, it is an indication of how the job might go. A good and reliable contractor should always keep you informed.
Experience and References
A high-quality roofer’s work will speak for itself. They will have references as well as years of experience. They will be able to put you in contact with past clients who can demonstrate the quality of the work they have done.
