Hiring a metal roofing contractor can be tricky. Use the following tips to ensure you are getting the best contractor for your metal roofing needs.
1. Make Sure They Are Licensed
Make sure that your contractor is a licensed professional. This is something you can check on the Roofing Contractors Association of Texas website. You can also ask them for proof of their roofing license, which they should be able to provide.
2. Look at Reviews
The Internet makes it very convenient to look at reviews and compare contractors. Sites such as Google and Yelp have business review pages where you can see if there is a pattern of complaints stemming from past clients. Of course some reviews you should take with a grain of salt. It is certainly more common someone would take the time to write a bad review rather than a good one. However, if there are an overwhelming number of bad reviews, it should send up a red flag.
3. Make Sure They Are Insured
Most companies have insurance to cover a catastrophic occurrence that destroys property and equipment and also to cover workers compensation claims. The last thing you want is for your contractor to be wrapped up in a lawsuit if something happens during the work on your house.
4. Make Sure They Use Quality Materials
You never want to hire someone who would use subpar materials on your roof. You need a roofing company who knows the best materials that will last.
5. Make Sure You Have a Contract
When you hire your contractor, make sure to have a contract detailing exactly what is to be done and when it is supposed to be completed. This will ensure there is no confusion about pay, materials, or deadlines.
