Let’s get the obvious stuff out of the way first. Aside from having contractor insurance, you want to make sure your roofing contractor has a permanent place of business and that he has a regular telephone number. Check to make sure he is licensed or bonded. Requirements vary from state to state but it’s always a better idea to hire a roofing contractor with contractor insurance. One that is licensed and bonded because it gives you some options if you have future problems with your roof services. Say it starts to leak or something…
You can check to see if the contractor is licensed by doing a search in Google for “state license board your state” and just replace “Your state” with the actual name of your state. To kill two birds with one stone, call the office to find out if the professional roofing contractor is licensed. To find out whether or not he is an honest contractor, ask if recent complaints have been lodged against him. The state licensing board is one of the first places people go to complain about bad experiences with contractors and that’s another reason to go with a licensed specialty roofing contractor.
There are plenty of projects around the house that you can use less skilled contractors for but roof services isn’t one of them. A roof is very expensive to replace so you want to make sure you find the best professional roofing contractor for the new roof installation or roof repair job. To do that you’ll need to start digging some more for reviews or data on what type of successful roofing work the roof restoration contractor is known for before you request a roofing proposal.
