4 Steps To Hire The Best Roof Replacement Contractor For You
Flying, broken tree branches, heavy wind, and high winds. The summer monsoon storms can really wreak serious damage on your roof. Whenever the valley is hit by a monsoon, so do scammers and fly-by-night roofers. There may be some that are legitimate but do not have the necessary experience to deal with the issues the roof in the desert here has to contend with. They will not be around as the roof continues to age and needs to be repaired. However, the other problem is an experienced, local roofing contractor may be totally book following a major storm. No matter why you need to have a roof replacement done, the process can seem very overwhelming. The following is some good advice to help you find the best contractor for your roofing project.
1. Obtain several different roof replacement estimates from roofing contractors
Choose 3 companies at least who have met your requirements. Get each one to conduct an inspection and provide you with a written estimate. You can limit the quotes to repairs that your insurance company deems necessary, or have separate quotes given for work and other repairs that your insurance claim does not include. Then you can make more direct comparisons between the different estimates you receive so know that a roofing contractor is working with the insurance company in unison.
Consider using flame-resistant and impact-resistant roofing materials. In recent years, materials have seen major advancements, so insurance companies do have incentives for using them. A roof that does not have those materials may cost you more in deductibles or premiums in the future.
A project’s quote amount should not be the sole factor in selecting a roofer. Ask yourself how each of them treated you. Did they completely answer your questions, in an understandable and thorough way?
What kind of record do they have with the BBB?
Contract three references from the prospective roofing company. Call those that are near to your neighborhood and projects that are similar in size to yours. Ask them open-ended questions: did they experience any problems How were those problems handled?
Based on past customer interviews, and your due diligence, choose a contract and then ask them to come up with a contract for your roofing project.
2. Go Through Your Agreement Carefully
A contract is a type of binding agreement between the roofing contractor and you, so make sure that you take the time to carefully go through it before signing the contract. Be sure the roofing contractor’s name, tax id, address, and phone number are all printed on the contact and also includes the following items of information:
3. Avoid Roofing Scammers
If you have a roofing salesperson come to your door, don’t let them in your house or up on your roof. Ask if they have a business card or other printed material to give you and make an appointment so that you can do due diligence. If you believe they are scammers, then write down their license plate number and hand it over to the local authorities. If the person uses high-pressure tactics to try to get to you to immediately make a decision or offer a one in a lifetime deal on your insurance deductible then do not sign anything and just ask them to leave.
