Choosing the right roof installation contractor for your roof replacement project is critical. A proper roof replacement will provide lasting protection and quality performance. Many manufacturer warranties specify that they are only valid if the roofer installs the roofing shingles according to the manufacturer’s instructions, which is another big reason why you need to hire a trustworthy contractor. Today, Affordable Roof Care shares tips to help you find the best roofing contractor for your project.
Find a Local Roofing Company
We recommend choosing a local roofing company for your project because local roofers have extensive and specialized knowledge regarding roof installation in your area. A local company understands your area’s weather conditions and the requirements that roofing products must meet to perform properly. In addition, a local roofer can also provide you with plenty of local references. You can call and interview these references to get an idea of the kind of work that the roofer will likely deliver.
Verify the Contractor’s Licenses and Insurance
When researching prospective roofers for your project, you need to verify their insurance and licenses. These are the minimum requirements a roofer must meet to be qualified to work on your roof. Working with an unlicensed and/or uninsured roofing contractor is inadvisable because that contractor has no way to prove they have the knowledge and skill needed to install your roof. A licensed contractor has proven that they follow laws and industry standards. An insured contractor can protect you from liability in the event that something goes wrong with your project.
Look for Manufacturer’s Certifications
Manufacturer’s certifications are another important qualification. A certified contractor has proven that they know how to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and guidelines when it comes to using the manufacturer’s products. Because of this, certified contractors are allowed to offer you a better warranty for their roof installation. In addition, the requirements for earning a manufacturer certification are often strict. A certified contractor has demonstrated a high level of skill and professionalism, which is how they earned their certification.
