Tips For Hiring The Right Roofing Contractor
Today’s roofing industry is unfortunately completely over-saturated with companies that promise the world, but don’t deliver. We at Lionheart absolutely cannot stand this. The problem is that many of these so called roofing companies are not even stationed in the town or city in which they fish for business. The “storm chaser” type of roofer actually is not a bad thing, but unfortunately because of the bad apples, it puts all who knock on doors after a storm in a questionable light. Make sure that your roofer is willing to show you their accreditations, licensees, and insurance. If they are not willing to provide these documents, do not use them. We at Lionheart go to great strides to stay on the up and up with all of our legislative authorities. If the company you have pitching you their services provides you these documents, then you are on the right track to finding your roofing contractor.
Also make sure as the customer that you do your due diligence when searching out the contractor to fix your roof. Many contractors might talk a good talk, but you need to check them out and see what is really the truth. The Better Business Bureau otherwise known as the BBB is a great resource to check out. Also make sure to do an extensive search on the internet not just for the name of the company, but for the owner or whoever tried to sell you the service. You will be surprised sometimes to see what comes up on Google when you type in someones name. After all, this person, if hired, will possibly be around your family, children, and belongings for a couple of days. So it is never bad to play it safe.
Also make sure you see up to date pictures of their work. Find out the actual building, if your roofing needs are industrial or commercial. Then do not hesitate to give that company a call and ask for the person who was in charge of overseeing the project. Ask them how everything was handled and if they recommend this particular roofing contractor. If your roofing needs are private or residential, ask for the phone numbers of the past 5 customers. Note: If you let them choose the customers they want to give you the recommendation, of course they will give you the ones that love them.
