Is it time for a new roof? If so, picking out a roofing contractor may look a little daunting, but with these quick tips you will be able to quickly determine the difference between an outstanding roofing contractor and a simply ordinary one.
Look for Local Recommendations
When you are looking at roofing contractors for your home, look at local contractors first. It is important that Kansas city roofers have done work in your area and that they are able to give you references from other clients they have worked with. Ask friends, neighbors and family for recommendations as well. Avoid storm chasers – these are contractors that pop up after a big storm and do not usually have local references or a local address and phone number. They will often leave a flyer on your door or in your mailbox if you live in a neighborhood that was heavily hit by hail, high winds or other highly damaging storms.
Licensed and Insured
Any contractor coming on your property to do work should be fully licensed and insured. A licensed roofing contractor has gone through the proper certifications to do the work that needs to be done safely and properly. They will also make sure the roofers working on your home are certified as well. An outstanding roofing contractor will have insurance that covers not only the work that they do, but also covers their employees that are on your property while putting up a new roof.
When you start the process with a roofing contractor there will be a lot of back and forth communication about time, pricing and process. An outstanding roofing contractor will be on top of all documentation and emails and will return phone calls in a timely manner. It is important that roofers answer questions and address concerns quickly and use the most appropriate form of communication for you whether it is email, phone or text.
