New Roof: Trick or Treating for Adults
Is getting roof replacement like trick or treating for adults? You never know if you’re going to get tricked by a shady company or treated with reliable service. Before signing a contract, take a look at some tips from roofing professionals.
Tip #1: Make Sure They’re Insured
Never, and we mean never, hire a roofing company without seeing proof of insurance. Suppose something happens to any workers or sub-contractors while on your property. You could be liable. Any company worth their salt will have insurance and will gladly show you their documentation.
Tip #2: Cheapest Isn’t Best
Don’t automatically go with the cheapest company. You get what you pay for, and to-good-to-be-true pricing can mean lack of experience, sub-par materials, or questionable business practices. Do your research, get referrals, and check online reviews before hiring a company.
Tip #3: Send the Storm Chasers Packing
Have you noticed after a big storm that companies send out salespeople door-to-door? Their spiel usually includes saying they’re already working with your neighbors, or they noticed damage to your roof, though neither is likely true. Beware of the roofing companies that knock on your door after a storm.
Tip #4: Get it in Writing
A good company will come to your house, do a thorough inspection of your roof, and put an estimate in writing. Make sure you agree to the terms, the timing, and the cost before you sign on the dotted line.
