Selecting a Seattle Roofing Contractor
Howdy, from Dallas, Texas! “The Lone Star State”. In this blog post we will address the proper way of selecting a good roofing company. Hiring a team of reputable and professional roofers can be a bit of a task. This is especially harder in large cities such as Dallas, TX or Washington. Below we will outline some basic guidelines you should follow when selecting a company to work with.
Check the Company’s Online Reputation
Aside from checking the BBB (Better Business Bureau) it’s imperative to check out other review websites. Make sure the company does not have any deleterious reviews about their firm or employed-contractors. Particularly good review websites to research roofers in my opinion would be: Yelp, Google Places, Merchant Circle, and last but not least Angie’s List.
If a business has been around long enough they will have a solid set of references they will share with prospective customers. If you are able to acquire a few references, call and ask them about their experience with the company you have in mind for hiring.
Ask Them about Tax Credits
In some cases, using energy-efficient roofs may result in a tax credit for you. Be sure to ask the companies you’re questioning if they have material regarding this. In today’s economy, any tax break can really help!
Do the Contractors Offer a Warranty?
I would recommend that you ask roofing companies if they offer any kind of warranty. Most all trustworthy roofers will offer a warranty on their work. If they are offering a warranty, be sure you get a copy of it in writing for your protection.
This is a vital guideline; a reliable roofing corporation should have at the very least general liability insurance. Ask them to provide you with the insurance company’s name and address. If the roofing company is willing to email you a copy of the insurance coverage document, that is even better.
In conclusion, if you follow these simple recommendations, you will make a great decision when selecting a company to install your new roof or repair your existing roof. Always remember, when you do hire a roofer make sure they are in constant contact with you throughout the entire roofing process.
