When it comes to major changes in life, we all want to make sure that we are choosing the right solution. That same thing goes for roofing. So when the time comes that you need a new roof, you want to make sure it is done with the right material and expertise, by a team that you trust. Roof replacement is one of the major investments you make in your home, so the work needs to be done properly. Therefore, the professionals at Biniek Specialty Contractors want to give you the tips you need to know what to look for when choosing a roofer:
➢ Find out how long the roofing contractor has been in business. When a company has an established business, it is more reliable and more likely to be there when you need them.
➢ Make sure that the roofing company is both insured and licensed. That way, you avoid contractors that aren’t experienced in the industry. Ask about particularly liability and worker’s compensation, to avoid all sorts of risks that a roofer without insurance coverage can leave you with.
➢ Ask the roofer for a list of references. If the roofing contractor is reputable, he will be more than happy to show you. Just remember that the list, of course, will consist of happy customers, and not those who were dissatisfied, since this isn’t in the best interest of the contractor. To find those, do your own online research.
➢ Find a roofer with good communication skills, that you can talk to about what you’re looking for and who will answer any questions you might have. Good communication is also essential in order for you to know where they are in the process. Through this, you will avoid misunderstandings and a result you may not be happy with.
➢ Hire a roofing contractor that offers you a guarantee. If any problems should occur with the installation or the materials, a written guarantee from the contractor is important to ensure that he will take care of the problem.
➢ Remember, companies are only as good as the workers that are employed. What skills or training is demanded of the workers and is workers provided with safety training programs? Workers that have been through safety training procedures are proven to have fewer accidents at their jobs.
➢ If old roofing materials need to be removed, is the clean-up then included in the overall cost? Some can be very punctual with cleaning up as they go, where others wait until the end, leaving your property looking messy.
➢ Lastly, always get a written contract with the scope of the project, the beginning and end dates, the materials used, and a list of all costs.
