As you search for a roofing contractor, there are many factors to consider. It is important to be properly prepared and educated before you begin that search. The more you know, the more likely you are to choose Elgin Promar Roofing for your roofing project.
When selecting a contractor, it’s important to select one that will offer the best services and protect your roofing investment. This is why it’s necessary to check the reputation of the company and contractor as well as the stability and the workmanship.
Before choosing a company, follow these guidelines to insure that the contractor you choose showcases professionalism and the proper certification and licensing.
A signed document from a bank verifying financial stability and a letter explaining the character of the company is an important piece when considering a roofing company. This shows the stability of the company and their good financial character as well.
You definitely want to make sure that your contractor carries general liability insurance for both commercial and residential projects. A sizable contractor will carry no less than $500,000, but more closely to around $1,000,000 in coverage. It is important that they are not “self-insured” there are a good amount of companies that do not carry proper coverage to protect you against any losses.
Before choosing a company ensure that there is an arbitration statement within the contract. This ensures that if complaints arise, the roofer agrees to settle disputes through binding arbitration. Without this agreement, there is no recourse.
If a contractor asks for more than 50% of the money upfront, there may be something a little fishy going on. There are only two reasons that a contractor would ask for such a significant amount of funds before beginning work. The first reason is if a special order non-returnable roofing material is ordered. This way the contractor is not out of money if you decide you don’t want it, or decide not to finish the project. The second reason is if your insurance is not covering your roof repair and your credit is questionable. Other than these reasons, full payment should not be accepted up front. There are a lot of frauds and scams out there, so it is good to be wary of such things.
