You’ve found yourself in need of roof repair. How can you distinguish between a qualified roofing contractor and an unqualified one? Before hiring a contractor to build a new roof for your home, “pre-qualify” your contractor. You can rest assured that you’ll receive the best results.
Here are 3 signs of a high-quality roofing contractor:
- They have proof of insurance. Ask to review copies of their worker’s compensation coverage and contractor’s liability insurance. The coverages should remain in effect throughout the duration of their job. If the contractor you choose is not insured, you could be held legally liable for any accidents that might occur on your property. You could be dragged into expensive and time-consuming litigation.
- They are licensed and bonded. You should double-check to ensure that the roofing contractor you hire is properly licensed and bonded. Most states require all roofing contractors to hold a valid contractor’s license. The ideal contractor will also have bonding from a surety firm.
- They hold professional credentials. Ask your roofing contractor if they are a member of the Michigan Roofing Contractor’s Association and/or the National Roofing Contractor’s Association. Active involvement in a professional organization keeps a contractor abreast of the newest developments within their industry so that they have the knowledge and resources needed to best serve their clients. Similarly, you can also check with the Better Business Bureau to review the contractor’s rating and see if any complaints have been filed against them.
