Looking for a roof repair contractor is already difficult, but hiring the right one can often be more so. There are practices you should follow to ensure you’re working with a trained and trustworthy professional. Here are some signs that you have hired or are hiring the right person.
- They are licensed and insured. You will immediately know that you have selected reliable contractors when they are properly licensed, meaning they are legally authorized to operate in your state. Ensure that the potential contractors have a copy of their general liability policy, and take note of the document’s expiration date. Always remember that hiring a licensed contractor will protect you in the event of a dispute. You should also ask for proof of insurance like workers’ compensation, which offers employees reparations for injuries or disabilities sustained during their employment.
- They provide written contracts. Avoid residential and commercial roofing contractors who do not provide written and signed contracts. An agreement serves as a protection for you and the contractor. It helps settle any disagreements that may arise in the future. Before you sign on the dotted line, thoroughly check the terms and conditions stated in the contract, and do not hesitate to clarify any concerns you may have.
- Their business is well-established. Always verify the quality of service they provide by researching them. Make it a habit to ask for references, and, because it’s likely for them to provide their favorite clients, you are urged to check reviews on their website. This way, you are able to carefully determine how they work.
