Advice on Selecting a Roofing Contractor

?When it comes to a new roof installation for your home, the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) strongly recommends that you only hire an experienced professional roofing contractor.  This is because a badly installed roof can lead to the need for extremely expensive repairs in the future and may even invalidate the warranty on your roofing materials.

But how do you know which contractor to choose?  This video can provide you with a lot of the information you need.

Some advice you’ll get while watching includes:

  • Make sure the roofing contractor you are considering has a documented permanent place of business, telephone number, tax ID number, and business license.
  •  Potential contractors should be able to show you documentation attesting to the fact that they carry both liability insurance and workers’ compensation insurance. Also, be check to be sure that these coverages will still be in effect for the duration of your roof installation job.
  •  Always insist that the roofing contractor you are considering gives you a written proposal that includes detailed work specifications.
  •  Keep a healthy skepticism about the lowest bid. As a rule of thumb, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
