The roof could be the most important part of your house. That’s what keeps the elements out. If it leaks or takes any kind of damage, you need to get a contractor to start roof repairs. Here are some tips on how to hire a contractor who will do the job right.
To start, you may want to go to your locally owned hardware store and ask the owner if they could recommend anyone. If you know anyone else in the construction trade, they could likely recommend someone reliable. You want to work with someone local with good insurance. When you talk to the roofer, they should be honest and open, unafraid to back their claims up. Look at reviews and ask for referrals. See if they’re accredited with the Better Business Bureau. Find out which manufacturer they’re accredited with. You might want to research what organizations they’re affiliated with. And of course, you want to make sure that you’re working with someone licensed to do roofing. This is important for insurance reasons.
One more thing you want to do is look for “problem customers.” Find out what the roofer does on their worst day so that you’ll really know what to expect. A great way to do this is to check reviews online.
