Choosing Your Roofing Contractor
When it comes time to select a certified roofing contractor to take care of your roof replacement, it is vital to do your homework.
Many contractors out there say they are experts in anything and everything you might need for your home. Some are siding contractors, gutter installers, and will try to build you a new deck. We are roofers and will not pretend to be able to do ever job your home may demand. While we hope that Anchor Roofing L.L.C. is always your number one choice when it comes roofing repair and re-roofing, we want to make sure that you are able to make an informed decision. The following are some of the key recommendations for the criteria that you should be using to select a local roofing contractor.
Make Sure They Are Legitimate.
Check for a permanent place of business, local telephone number, tax I.D. number, plus a state or local business license indicating where they are able to perform the roofing work. If they are established in the community they are much less likely to do bad business. Fort Collins is a big city with a small town attitude and people that do bad business don’t usually last long.
Lower Isn’t Always Better.
Don’t be fooled into hiring a low price bidder based on a lower cost alone! Your roof must last for many years and needs to be installed professionally by a roofing contractor who is committed to quality materials, quality workmanship and stellar reputation.
Make Sure It’s All Covered.
Ask to see your roofing contractors general liability insurance coverage. Check that its valid for the time frame that your roofing project work will be performed. Also be sure to read and understand the roofing contractors warranty.
Get A Point Of Contact.
Get a written proposal for your roofing work to be done that clearly states the kind of work they intend to do, the materials intended to be used, approximate start and finish dates, and payment amounts and policies.
Get It In Writing.
Ask about how your roofing work will be supervised, and how you can communicate with the contractor and the roofing crew, should any issues or questions come up. Be sure to know the name of the supervisor who will be overseeing your roofing project and that you know how to reach them if needed.
Check Their Background.
Look for a roofing contractor with a solid reputation for quality roofing work. Check references and reviews carefully and consider visiting completed job sites to see the work that was done and meet other homeowners if you are still unsure.
