The choice of A Quality Roofing Contractor
A recent survey conducted by the Consumer Federation of America (CFA) identified the top ten consumer complaints. Home improvement and Construction has remained number two over six years second to the auto industry. The majority of the complaints within the home improvement industry are focused on bad work and failure to start or finish the work. In addition, National Magazine conducted a survey and the results were amazing. 45% of the people surveyed would not recommend the contractor they used to a friend.
When you choose your roof contractor, ensure that they can provide you with all of the following. First, make sure they are a licensed contractor. If an unlicensed roofing contractor gets hurt on your property, they can sue – and win! Unlicensed contractors are unlikely to carry proper insurance, so it can happen to you. Consumer reports show that unlicensed contractors do shoddy work, and in some cases, not even finish the project at all! The licenses are generally required for projects that affect the structural integrity of a house.
In general, any roofing company that gets listed with consumer choice awards are great contractors to work with. The Better Business Bureau is also a great place to evaluate roofing companies. Furthermore, any good roofing contractor is affiliated with a roofing contractors association. If a roofing company is not affiliated with any association, which is a good indicator of an unlicensed, uninsured or inexperienced contractor. Your local chamber of commerce is another good place to look for an experienced roofing contractor.
Your contractor should be informed about the different products and roofing materials that are available for your home. Your contractor should be able to answer any questions that you may have on the original commitment. Make sure that you feel comfortable with your decision after selecting your roofing contractor. After all, you really want a company that you are comfortable with to work on your biggest investment, your home? Remember, the sales person you spoke with may have been a good person, but what about the people that you will have to make with regard to work and any concerns that you have. A good way to know is to talk with your cities building inspector.
