Planning to do roof repair or replacement soon? There are a few things you need to watch out for when you’re hunting for a company to do your roofing project. Excel Roofing and Solar discusses what contractor traits to watch out for and what to look for.
Insurance is Important
If your prospective roofing contractor lacks insurance, then we suggest you look for another one to work with. Insurance is very important since it includes worker’s compensation and liability insurance. The latter protects you from workmanship errors and accidents.
Be Wary of Contractors That Aren’t Local
Our company suggests only working with a local roofing contractor for all of your roofing projects. Local businesses don’t just have “local” knowledge of your roofing needs, they’re also established businesses with a reputation in the community. If your prospective roofer isn’t a local contractor, chances are they may be a storm chaser.
Make Sure They Get Everything in Writing
Finally, it’s important that your roofing contractor gets everything in writing, from the little project details, payment options, to completion dates. The written contract is your reference and assurance that your roofer will commit to their promises and get the job done right.
Your roofer should always keep their lines of communication open at all times. Calling them for updates shouldn’t be a hassle and they should be happy to give you all the documentation you need for your roofing project.
