Choosing a reliable contractor to repair or replace your roof can be challenging. With such a big investment, it’s imperative to choose a company you can trust to protect your home.
Find the right contractor for your roof replacement with these tips from Vertex Roofing Contractors Inc.
Ask for Referrals
Ask your friends, family and neighbors for referrals. Word of mouth is often the best way to ensure you’re finding a reputable service provider. Choosing a local contractor is another safe bet as local companies have a reputation to uphold in their community.
Look for Manufacturer Certifications
A roofing contractor must meet strict requirements to become factory certified. For example, only three percent of roofing contractors in the country have met the strict requirements necessary to be recognized as GAF Master Elite® Contractors.
Check Better Business Bureau (BBB) Ratings
Look up your potential contractor on the BBB website to see if they have a good score. Avoid contractors that aren’t accredited by the BBB.
Ask About Extensive Warranty
Roofing problems due to improper installation can take years to manifest, and your insurer may not cover such issues. Make sure that the contractor you’re hiring offers manufacturer warranties with workmanship coverage.
Make Sure They Are Licensed & Insured
A contractor should have insurance for all employees. They should provide a copy of their insurance and license certificates to prove their validity. You can also confirm their license status online. Not having a proper license and insurance could lead to litigation between you and the contractor if a worker gets injured on-site.
