If you are looking to hire a roofing contractor, here are six tips to help you in your selection process.
1. Make sure they are insured.
It may sound like a no-brainer, but it’s imperative that your contractor has liability and worker’s compensation insurance. Don’t forget to ask for proof such as the certificates or you can even call the insurance carrier for confirmation.
2. Choose a local – in this case Maryland or Pennsylvania – company.
Make sure your contractor is local. An established company with a good reputation in the community speaks volumes.
3. Don’t just go for the most affordable.
While price is important for many, choosing the absolute cheapest service can sometimes be a bad thing. Be careful with cheap bids are “real” companies have overhead and proper insurance to make sure you both are covered.
4. Avoid “storm chasers”.
Stay away from the “We were in your neighborhood” roofers. Instead, try to choose a roofing company by other means, for instance a referral from a satisfied client.
5. Time and money.
These are things that should be in your control throughout the process. Make you are informed how long the job will take and also make sure that you are satisfied with the services before you release your funds.
Did the contractor provide the essential paperwork? Did they return your phone calls and/or emails? Did they follow through? If the contractor can’t make good on these tasks, it’s probably a good idea to look elsewhere.
