Your local area is teeming with residential and commercial roofing companies ready to offer their services to customers. If you are looking to hire one to have your roof replaced or repaired, you have to be certain that the pros you’ll be working with are a good fit for your needs. Ensuring the success of your project involves taking the time to get to know the local businesses up close and personal.
Read on for tips on hiring a roofing contractor that matches your needs and expectations.
Learn About Their Past Projects
To get an idea of the contractor’s expertise and workmanship, consider asking them about the past jobs they’ve worked on over the past few years. Specifically, ask them about their experiences with working on roofs that are the same as the ones you plan to use.
Check the Contractor’s Credentials
Always check a prospective renovation roofing contractor’s credentials. You can ask them directly or do your research online if they are qualified to do business in the area. Visit the Better Business Bureau® (BBB) website or the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) for more information. See to it that the contractor also has updated licenses. In Tennessee, roofers are required to have state licenses on projects worth more than $25,000.
Ask if They Carry Insurance
Ask if the roofing contractor you are looking to hire carries insurance, particularly workers’ compensation and general liability insurance. The first one is vital should something go wrong on your property during a roof installation and one of the roofers gets injured. With workers’ comp, you won’t be liable for the injured worker’s medical bills. The second insurance, meanwhile, protects you from paying any form of property damage that may happen during the project.
