How Can You Trust Contractors If They Are From Out Of The Area?

by / Monday, 06 November 2017 / Published in Tips

In light of our recent wildfire disaster, we are soon to see contractors coming in to offset our contractor and labor shortage and to help us rebuild our community. Times such as these often open the doors to predatory companies wanting to take advantage of our circumstances. You do not want to entrust the rebuilding of your home and roofing system to any company that may be exploiting our situation. That is why you will want to take great care before hiring building contractors and roofers to rebuild your Napa home. In times such as these, it may not be possible to find local contractors and you will need to find ways to vet your contractors so you can be assured they are trustworthy. Trust is an important component when it comes to a professional you are entrusting to repair or replace the structure of your home. How can you have peace of mind in times like these?

Fortunately, today we have the internet and we are able to determine a business’s reputation with a few keystrokes. A few simple steps will allow you to ascertain if a company has a history of good business practices. A reputable company will have a physical address and a history of business in the area where they are located. They will have a current business license from their state and will have ample insurance which will include personal liability, property damage, and Workers’ Compensation. A reputable builder or roofer will be willing to provide these. They will also have no judgments, liens, or unpaid suppliers.

A responsible company will also have a good local reputation where they are physically located and be members of the community. You can learn about a contractor’s reputation by checking local reviews and speaking to former customers and suppliers. When speaking with former customers, you will want to know if the work was completed promptly and satisfactorily. You will also want to check their local Better Business Bureau accreditation, service networks like Angie’s List or Home Advisors, and check to see if they are members of the local Chamber of Commerce. You may not know these people personally, but there are ways of determining whether these are contractors you want building or repairing your largest investment — your home.

As we all come together to rebuild, we need to rely on each other and be able to trust the people we are hiring to make that happen. As one of the most trusted Napa roofers for over six decades, the professionals at Modern Method Roofing are here for our friends and neighbors. We are working nonstop to help rebuild our community.
