Reasons to Work with a Licensed Roofing Professional
You may be tempted to hire a “local handyman” to do the roofing for you and while the fees associated with hiring a freelancer are lower there is also considerably more risk for you the property owner. If the handyman injures himself or damages the home your home insurance will not cover you because you hired an unlicensed contractor it is for that reason alone you need to hire a licensed roofing contractor.
After you have the names of these contractors you have to schedule a meeting with them and have them prepare a quote on what they will charge you for the roofing project. When meeting the contractor in person note whether they sound knowledgeable to you and do they look professional in their appearance? If they do not or their quote is unusually low you should remove them from the list of candidates.
While looking over the quotes you should find out whether the roofing contractor is going to provide a warranty, if they do make sure you get it in writing so there are no misunderstandings in the future should you need to enforce the warranty. The last thing you will need to do before you actually hire the contractor is check their references just to make sure they provide good quality work. If you follow all of these tips then you won’t have any issues when it comes to installing your new roof.
