Selecting a Contactor

Please be aware of the roofing contractors that come to town when a hailstorm has occurred.  These contractors are known as “storm chasers”.  It is always a sound practice to contract with a locally owned business in your area.  Here are some steps to follow to ensure you are contracting with a locally established roofing contractor in your community:

  • Check the company status with the Better Business Bureau

  • Ask for a reference list for homes and customers in your area

  • Insist on an “on the job” foreman

  • Make sure you receive a written estimate outling the scope of work

  • Insist on daily job clean up and inspections

  • Insist on receiving a valid insurance certificate

  • Never pay cash up front unless it is a custom order

  • Document the number of years the company has been in business in your area

  • Ask how long the roofers have been employed by the roofing contactor

  • The company should be able to supply lien waivers by their suppliers

  • Make sure the roofing material will be installed in compliance to the manufacturers’ specifications and guidelines

  • Insist on an after project walk through and inspection
