The decision of getting your roof or siding done can be an overwhelming process. The first being the expense and the second how do you choose the right company to do the work.
Choosing the right roofing company can be daunting because of all the horror stories circulating about bad work or price gouging and lack of accountability. The best way to choose any professional to work on your home is a simple phone call to your City Building Department. Inquire who pulls the most permits in your community and who passes the inspections. Cities are not allowed to refer companies but they are allowed to share this information. Use this process when doing any work that requires a permit.
A permit assures each homeowner that the contractor hired has a license and insurance and is verifiable by the City. Having the company pull the permit relieves you of liability for faulty workmanship and gives the homeowner the opportunity to take further action if required. This assures confidence and peace of mind that an established and professional company is in good standing.
Another way to choose a contractor is to ask friends, family and co-workers about their experience with home improvement companies that they have used. Referrals are most likely a trusted way consider a company.
Once the company is chosen to do your roof or siding then prepare your property for the invasion of a crew. Move landscaping or deck and porch items close to the house to a safe area or bring it to the attention of the crew and they will protect or move the items that may be difficult to move. Do a walk around with the sales person or crew prior to beginning work to be aware of hazards or concerns and assure the property is in good condition before the work begins. Do the same when the work is complete.
The fun part about getting your roof or siding done is pulling up a chair and watching our amazing crew transform the look of your home.
