Guide to Hiring the Best Roofing Contractor for Your Home

When you are ready for a major home-improvement job, such as installing a new roof, it is very important that you choose your contractor carefully. There is much more you need to look at than just the price they quote you during an evaluation. While one company may provide very low rates, they may not do very good work – or worse, could be scam artists

Chicago has a lot of roofing contractors – how do you choose the right one? This helpful guide, put together by CertainTeed in Pennsylvania, can help you take the right steps so that you hire a reputable roofing company that will do the job right. Suggestions include:

  • Interview your potential roofing contractors. Determine if they take pride in their work and how knowledgeable they are about your particular job.
  • Get the full name and physical address of each company. This will help you determine how long they have been in business. A company that has been in business more than three years is usually a safe bet. Also, hiring a contractor that is located hear your home can result in faster response times.
  • Make sure that the company you choose is fully licensed and insured. You can ask to see the contractor’s certificates of insurance. Keep in mind that if the roofers are not covered by workers’ compensation insurance, you may be held liable if they are injured while working on your house.
  • Ensure that the company can provide referrals from previous jobs. Ask to see photos and get the name and phone numbers of a few recent customers.
  • See if the company you are considering has a workmanship warranty or offers any other guarantees.
