The secret to the success of any roofing project is hiring the right contractor. Sadly, it is too easy to pick an unreliable roofer, especially when you do not know how to size up candidates properly.
To help you make an informed hiring decision, use WestPro’s following expert tips:
Pay Attention to the Roofer’s Specialty
A common misconception is that roofers can install any material. Many residential and commercial roofers have product specialties. If you have a specific brand in mind, go with a contractor with a wealth of experience in handling it to ensure flawless workmanship.
Ask About Certifications
A manufacturer certification is one of the stamps of approval that speaks of a roofer’s competence and integrity. The most popular is arguably the GAF Master Elite® certification for which only the top 3% of all roofers qualify. If you are in the market for a GAF roofing system, look for a roof replacementcontractor that shares such distinction, like WestPro.
Be Biased Toward Local Businesses
Local roofers are generally more reliable than their counterparts that normally operate outside your community. A reputable local contractor is familiar with the building codes in your area and is easy to hold accountable in case of workmanship errors.
Require a Detailed Estimate
Whether it’s a roof repair or a total roof installation, you should review the project’s contract thoroughly. It should be consistent with what the estimate says as well as the promises given to you during initial conversations about the project. A contract is legally binding, while verbal agreements are not, so you can’t force your roofer to do anything outside the contract once signed.
