Putting a new roof on your home is a big investment. Not only will you have to look at it for 20 years or more, but a roof can significantly increase or reduce the property value of your home if you are looking to sell in the future. The property value is heavily dependent on the type of roof you decide on. That’s not it, though. If the roof isn’t installed correctly, it can lead to other problems in the home which will negatively affect the property value. That’s why picking a roofing contractor is such an important decision.

Before you make a decision, there are a few things you’ll want to research. To learn different tips for choosing the right roofing contractor for your needs, continue reading below.

Benefits of Hiring an Insured Contractor

In the roofing industry, never hire a contractor that isn’t insured! This is an absolute must! If the contractor isn’t insured, and he falls off your roof or damages your home, you will be fully responsible for the damages and injuries.

If you don’t check for anything else, ask for two things before you hire a roofing contractor:

  • Proof of insurance
  • Proof of license

In the state of California, all roofing contractors must be licensed when working on projects worth more than $500.

If the contractor doesn’t want to show you proof, the answer is simple, do not hire the contractor. The risk is far too great. You could end up with bills worth thousands of dollars in the end. Not to mention, if the contractor is hurt on the job or damages the home, you likely aren’t going to get him to finish the job afterward.

The Importance of Customer Service

Most roofing contractors in the business will offer a satisfaction guarantee for their work. You are inviting this person onto your property to work on a part of your home that is a vital part of your protection and well-being.

Before you even get far enough in a conversation to ask for the contractor’s insurance card, you should take to the internet to look for customer reviews. If for whatever reason the contractor doesn’t have an online presence and he wasn’t a recommendation, you are better off to try another contractor. In this type of situation, it is always better to be safe than sorry.

Does the Contractor Offer Warranties?

A roof is likely one of the biggest investments you’ll make in your home. Hiring a contractor that offers warranties for his services makes it a lot easier to trust that he will get the job done right too. No one likes to come back to a job to fix something they should have gotten right the first time.

Some contractors also offer free estimates. This is another feature that only the best contractors will offer because if a contractor isn’t good at his job and is having trouble finding and keeping work, he will take all the money and business he can get.

Perks, like the two mentioned above, are key features all the professional roof contractors have in common. If you can find a contractor that meets all of the above-stated specs, you can trust that you are hiring a quality contractor.
