3 Tips for Choosing the Right Contractor
Posted on: April 6, 2017
Looking for a reliable, trustworthy roofing company can feel like a daunting task. Choosing a good, stable company is of the highest importance, roof repairs can be costly and ultimately your roof is what protects you and your family. Below are a few tips that can assist you in your selection process.
1. Pricing - Although we all would like to save some money on repairs, never chose a company solely on price. When a company offers cheap prices, they are actually driving down the market. Reputable companies have certifications and are insured, so they have to offer pricing that covers their overhead. Ultimately, you will get what you pay for. If you do choose a company only because of their low prices, you may have to spend even more money in the future on repairs due to low quality work or improper installation.
2. Choose a company that is insured - Be sure that the company you are considering to hire has insurance. You will be able to rest assured that the services being provided to you are protected with the security that only proper coverage can offer. You can even ask the company representative if you can actually see their insurance certifications and even call the insurance carrier to ensure validity.
3. Attain a detailed description of the job in writing - Before they start on the job get a description and details in writing. Ask questions like; how long will the job take? What size crew will be doing the work? What is the estimated completion time? These are all very important questions. Also, be sure you are completely satisfied with the job before they leave and be sure to discuss payment terms BEFORE any work is done.
