When selecting roofers for roof repair you want to make an informed decision. So there are things you should look at when choosing a company to do your roof repairs. Roofing contractors can be quite different in the way they do things and the work they do compared to general contractors. It could therefore be essential to consider their competence on the job.
Checking their training and qualification in this field should be essential. The testimonials you find about them online could be used as the basis of choosing a competent one in your area. Same goes for general contractors. However, a general contractor worth his salt will have a wider knowledge and experience base in all aspects of construction, including roofing.
It is through the testimonials and reviews that you get from their current and previous clients that could determine the reputation they have in providing their roofing services. By looking at these tips you may be able to select a reliable company to provide you with long lasting solutions.
Storm damage roof repairs can be expensive and involved. You want it done right. There are a lot of roofing companies vying for your business. General contractors, on the other hand, have other construction services they offer other than roofing. Therefore they aren’t too many “storm chasers” found in the general contracting industry as there are in the roofing specific industry.
Here are some tips from the BBB (Better Business Bureau) for consumers:
➡ Get more than one bid to compare contractors.
Keep in mind it’s not all about the money, it’s more about meeting the contractor first to get a feeling for their personality and ethics.
➡ Check references on past work.
They should be able to provide you with an extensive list of real referrals either online or offline.
➡ Make sure you understand the contract.
This is huge. Know the fine print! If you don’t, then either ask questions for clarification or get advice from a trusted friend.
Be cautious about:
* High pressure tactics
* Shady looking out of town roofing contractors
* Promises to do work with no insurance deductible
* “Under the table” or “off the books” payments.
Any quality contractor operates above board and within CA Sate and Federal laws and regulations. They should be able to provide you with an extensive list of referrals either online or offline. Ask for a list of addresses of jobs they have done for other customers in your area. Drive by and look at their work. If they are unable to provide you with solid references or are hesitant to let you look at some of their jobs, consider hiring a different roofer.
