It’s important to choose a qualified contractor for your roofing project, and Clearwater, FL offers a wide variety to choose from. But when vetting a potential contractor, you need to know what to ask. Here are some questions to guarantee that you find the best roofing contractor for your Clearwater, FL home.
- How does the company handle complaints? As for a referral from a previous client who made a complain. Ask about court cases the company may have lost and/or any license suspensions they might have suffered. Be sure and consult the Better Business Bureau and your local licensing departments regarding any complaints filed. Remember that a complaint is not necessarily a dealbreaker: it’s a question of how the company handles complaints
- What about warranties? A proper roofing job should have two warranties: one for the materials and one for the work. Find out all you can about both, and ask for referrals to previous clients in order to evaluate how thoroughly the contractor follows through with their warranty’s promises.
- How long have they been in business? Experience is obviously a benefit, but even younger businesses may be able to meet your needs effectively. You can ask for references (bear in mind they may not be former clients) to attest to the company’s training and professionalism.
- Are they licensed? This question can be tricky: you need to be familiar with your state’s laws regarding licensing and credentials. In states where a license is required, ask to see it and remember that a professional roofing license is not the same as a business license.
- Are they insured? In the unfortunate event of an accident, if your contractor is uninsured you can be held liable for damages and medical costs. Always ask for proof of general liability an worker’s compensation coverage. Make sure any documentation you’re shown is up to date and official.
- Basic information? Don’t forget to keep a full set of contact and legal information for the contractor you’re considering: the name under which the company is licensed, its mailing address, and its physical location (if different than mailing address). Remember, shopping local can guarantee fast, convenient service if you should need it down the road.
