Finding reliable roofers for all your roofing needs can be challenging. If you’ve ever searched the internet for local roofing companies, then you’ve probably seen hundreds or even thousands of potential candidates that will all want to help you repair or replace your roof. Even if you narrow down your search to include only those companies that are local to you, you’ll likely still have a few dozen to choose from.
While most roofing companies are trustworthy, the industry also has members who are less than honorable. You want to avoid these unscrupulous individuals as much as possible. The problem is, how do you decide which roofers are good and which ones are bad? Let our experts at Century Roofing and Siding Ltd. give you the traits you should look for in a roofing contractor.
Proof of Licensing
First, you want to get all your due diligence out of the way. Make sure your roofing company has all the pertinent licensing, certifications and compliance certificates to conduct business in your area. Don’t be afraid to ask them for a copy of these documents along with proof of insurance and bonding. Trustworthy roofers will have no problems providing you with this important information.
Quotes, Estimates and Contracts
Another sign that you’re dealing with a keeper is how they present their roofing quotes and estimates. These should include all details pertaining to your roofing project, including the materials they will use, the accessories and hardware that they will need, and how much time the work will take. Quotes should even be more detailed as, once signed, a quote functions as a legal contract.
Finally, a good roofing contractor will always be easy to reach. They will always provide you with a reliable contact number you can call in case of emergencies. In some cases, you’ll also have a second number for times when the original number is unavailable.
