Here at Crown Builders, we know that choosing a contractor to do any type of work on your home can be a daunting task, but this is especially true when looking for the right team to work on your roof. Your home’s roof is a big investment, and an important part of its structural integrity, so you need to make sure that the company you choose can do the job right. Our team wants to help you get the best possible service, so in this article we’ll be going over three things that you should look for when choosing a roofing contractor:
- Established Local Reputation- When selecting a roofing contractor, we at Crown Builders recommend looking for companies that have an established presence and positive reputation in your local community. The biggest reason for this is that a local business will be more invested in providing great service, as local customers like you are the ones who can make or break their business and good name.
- Communication Skills- Having work done on your roof is often a lengthy process that involves many decisions and lots of changing information. Because of this, it’s essential that your roofing contractor have strong communication skills and use them to keep you informed about every part of the process. If you’ve been talking to a contractor who doesn’t return your calls or provide information you request, we recommend that you take your business elsewhere.
- Insurance- Another thing that your roofing contractor absolutely must have is proper insurance, particularly workers’ compensation and liability coverage. Roofing is one of the most dangerous jobs in the US, so it’s important that your contractor have insurance to cover the costs associated with any injuries or other accidents that may occur during the project. A reputable contractor will be ready to hand over their insurance documentation at your request—if there’s any hesitation, we suggest you keep searching.
