Guidelines for Selecting a Roofing Contractor

When it’s time to select a roofing contractor, remember that all roofing
contractors are not alike. A new roof is a big investment. Take your time and
make a smart decision. Use good common sense and follow these guidelines.

Know that anything you sign — no matter what you are told — is a binding
contract! Make sure the agreement includes cost, type of material, warranties
and payment terms. Do not make any verbal agreements nor sign a contract that
does not have a cost!

Don’t pay for work or materials in advance. Roofers who take down payments and
never satisfactorily complete the job is the most common BBB complaint about

Don’t proceed without the contractor’s proof of workers compensation and
general liability insurance. Check with the insurance company to see if it’s
still in force.

Avoid hiring a storm chasing roofer since they may not be around to honor
warranties. “Preferred Contractor” means  local roofers with good reviews.

Contact your Better Business  Bureau to see if there are any complaints on file against the contractor.
Ask the contractor for a copy of his license and make sure a permit is pulled
before work begins. You may want to verify this information with your city or
county and see if there are any complaints on file.
