For over a century, we have maintained and repaired roofs, gutters, and sidings for thousands of residents and business owners across the Philly region. But how do you know how to choose the best roofing contractor? Check out the tips we’ve listed below.
Local contractors often have great relationships with area crews and suppliers, keeping the cost of their services down. They will be familiar with all local rules and regulations, and by choosing a local contractor, it will be easy for you to access references from previous customers or request testimonials.
Look for an Extensive Warranty
Only some contractors can offer manufacturer warranties that cover the work of the contractor. Incorrect or shoddy workmanship can cause damage over the years, and this will not be covered by insurance, the contractor may not fix it, and you will be left shelling out dollars from your pocket.
Double Check Licensing and Insurance
A great roofing contractor will have insurance for all employees and subcontractors and be able to provide evidence of this. This covers homes and businesses should a contractor suffer an accident on their property. Although most states require licensing for contractors, that doesn’t stop some companies from hiring unlicensed contractors, so double check this information to keep yourself and your property safe.
Know Your Choice of Materials
Contractors that don’t offer you various material options for your shingles are not looking out for your best interests. The color and style of the shingles that you choose can affect the value of your property. If your roof is covered by insurance, take heed of the opportunity to upgrade to a style that both suits your home and can improve the overall aesthetics of your estate.
