When you need roof repair or replacement, selecting the right roofing company is obviously important. At Paradigm Roofing, we know roofs – in fact, we have more than 30 years of roofing experience. Here are some tips for picking a good roofing contractor.
Ask for Proof of Insurance
It is important for anyone you hire to be properly insured. A good way to check this is to ask to see copies of their insurance policies including general liability and workman’s compensation. Confirm the policies are paid in full for the duration of your project. If they are not adequately insured and an accident occurs, you may be liable. Also check that they are licensed or bonded; licensing requirements can vary by state.
Get a Written Proposal
When interviewing roofing contractors, insist on a proposal that outlines all aspects of your project. This makes it easier to compare them side by side and not have to remember details from memory. Proposals should include detailed descriptions of work that will be completed, pricing, and start and completion timeframes. Any roofing warranties and provisions that would void them are also good to have in writing.
Be Wary of the Lowest Bid
Price is always a consideration when selecting the right roofing company. However, it should only be one of the selection criteria. Experience and quality of service are also important factors. Contractors who have extremely low bids may be uninsured and perform shoddy work. If it seems too good to be true, there is a good chance it is.
