Tips on Getting A Good Roofer to Do Any Work on Your Roof

The roof of your home is at the top of most homeowner’s list for maintenance as they get a lot of tears and wear. The best thing to do is have a roofer come back to check your roof, especially after you have just had a bad storm. The internet makes it seem so easy to take care of minor issues without the help of a professional. But let a professional do it. True there are many small damages that are easy to fix but it is still best to call a professional roofer for repairing your roof.

Tips

If you need to hire a roofer, there are several tips that will help you make your selection process easier.

Insurance

You need to be sure that your contractor has liability insurance as well as worker’s compensation. And ask to see the certificates and call the carrier of the insurance to confirm that they are acceptable.

This will keep all bids on the same level field, knowing that part of the cost of the roof and the service provided to you is protected with the security of coverage.

Local company

Make certain that the roofer’s company is local. This shows that they are not only operating locally now but already have a business as well as a reputation already established in your community. Many customers have troubles within the traditional 5-year warranty. The company that they hired to fix their roof is closed, moved or otherwise not there to cover the warranty.  It is easy to offer a piece of paper, but the warranty is only as good as the reputation and stability of the roofing company.

Get details in writing

Have all the details written down. These details go with you and you need to be the one in control. We advise that you do not pay any money until the work is finished and only when you are happy with the finished results and that the terms of payment were examined prior to the job and followed to by both parties.
