A well-maintained roof is an essential part of a healthy home structure and when it comes to repairing or replacing the roof, we always look for a qualified roofing contractor. Finding a right commercial roofing contractor can be a challenging task as there are certain thoughts in our mind before we finalize the roofing contractor such as how to assure that they are not overcharging, what if the work is delayed or how to check if they are using a quality product, among others. Below are the few tips which may help you in finding the right roofing contractor for your job:
1. Neighbourhood Referrals
One of the best methods to find a roofing contractor is to check within your neighbourhood. Were there any roof repairs or replacements in the past? Reach out to your friends, relatives, neighbours, etc., for a referral and ask a few questions such as were they satisfied with the work done? What were the challenges they faced during the project? Why did they choose this contractor? This will narrow down your options as you can rely on the feedback provided by your contacts.
2. Local Contractors
Once you narrow down the referrals, do your research, and consider the contractors near your place as they will be easily reachable and can provide a quicker response for the job.
3. Interview the Contractor
The next step is to set up a meeting to discuss the job with them. Ask about the past projects, pictures, worker’s insurance, the time required to complete the job, number of manpower they will employ, budget, payment terms, warranty, how old their business is, and any other question that comes to your mind.
4. Getting the Contract Copy
If you are satisfied with the answers provided by the contractors, ask for a written contract with all the terms and conditions you have agreed upon along with the copy of valid insurance certificates, business licenses, etc.
5. Final Evaluation
After getting the quotes from all the selected contractors, it’s time for the final evaluation. There is no denying that the cost is an important factor but along with the cost, do consider the factors you discussed during your meeting with the contractors.
