A quality roof can only be installed by a quality roofer. A new roof is a big investment in your home, and you want to make sure the job is done properly. Here are some tips to help you find a qualified roofing company for your project.
Talk to friends and neighbors who have had their roof replaced or repaired. They can fill you in on things to look for, and they can also let you know about their experience. Most Oklahoma City contractors are willing to provide you with references. Ask for at least eight jobs you can visit to see examples of the roofer’s work.
Know the Code
Call the city building department and find out what is required for any roofing project. Being knowledgeable about the legal requirements will help you recognize great contractors when you meet them. Only hire contractors who will adhere to the building code when installing your roof.
Conduct an Interview
There is more to choosing a roofer than the price you see on a quote. The lowest bidder may be using substandard materials or taking dangerous shortcuts. Interview the contractors before making a final decision. Find out if they will be using ice guard on your roof. Ask questions that are specific to the building code. Most importantly, ask about their experience in the roofing industry.
Licensed and Insured
It is important to choose a licensed and insured contractor. The license is assurance that they have passed government testing and review. This small requirement will narrow the field and help you find an experienced and highly qualified roofer. The insurance protects you in case of an accident. If the contractor is a member of the Better Business Bureau, contact that agency to see how well they respond to complaints or concerns.
A reputable, experienced roofer will offer a warranty on the installation. Do not hire any roofer who is not willing to provide you with some form of warranty on the labor. Additionally, look for a contractor who offers transferable warranties.
