Roof repairs and replacements can be quite expensive, and while other renovations and improvements around the house are optional, you don't have a choice when it comes to roofing.
A well-built roof will last you for decades as it protects the home and everyone in it, from the glaring sun, pouring rain, and snow. Plus, it can raise the aesthetic appeal, comfort-level, and resale value of your house.
Roof installation and replacement can be quite expensive, but that's no reason to DIY these jobs unless you are absolutely 100% sure what you are doing.
Professional roofing contractors have years of experience, the right tools and expertise to the job right. And for your safety and the structural integrity of your house, it is essential to hire a professional roofer who has a reputation for doing the job on time while staying on the estimate.
How to Select the Right Roof Contractor
To ensure that the potential roofer won't dismay, carry out the following checks:
If a neighbor or colleague got their roof repaired or replaced, and they are quite satisfied with the service, ask them to refer the roofer to you. Or get your friends and family involved in helping you find a roofer for your home.
This will also help you hire locally from roofing contractors who are well aware of the relevant laws and regulations that govern home repairs and renovations, etc.
A roofer with a 5-star rating on the BBB (Better Business Bureau) website has a reputation for being customer friendly. And that's someone you should want to work with!
So even if you are getting the deal of a lifetime, check if the contractor is BBB accredited and only then decide to work with them.
Look for a roofer who is willing to stand behind their work 100% by offering a generous warranty and replacement service. Next, make sure that they are a registered business in your area, so you can be sure they won't skip town when you go looking for them to claim the warranty.
You are looking for someone with a Master Elite® certification as they can offer you the most extended warranty when it comes to roofing — the Golden Pledge® Warranty.
Safety, Licensing, and Insurance
Check if the contractor in question provides employees with adequate safety training, industrial safety gear, and liability insurance to safeguard their interests.
This should help you ensure that the roofing technicians know how to stay safe, and in case of an accident, the liability doesn't fall on you.
Plus, if your state requires contractors to have a license, please check that they have one.
