Our roofers in South Florida are equipped to help you get the job done right in moderate time.
While there’s no predetermined checklist to help you choose the roofer of your dreams, keep reading for some very important guidelines to follow to help ensure you’re getting exactly what you need to meet your roofing needs.
Choose A Local Contractor:
Our Miami roofing company advise homeowners and commercial property owners to choose a reliable and local contractor. You want to make sure that your roofer has an established business and a solid reputation in the community. Unfortunately, property owners have fallen victim to fly-by-night roofers who, after installing or repairing a roof, seemingly move, close or vanish. In these cases, warranties can be useless. It’s important to remember that a roof’s warranty is only as good as the reputation and the longevity of the roofing company.
Price Isn’t Everything:
Price should never be the determining factor. While Crown strives to provide you with the best quality roof at the most affordable price, it’s important to remember that the two coincide. Unfortunately, cheap bids can drive down the market and any company with overhead and with the proper insurance must establish pricing to cover these kinds of costs.
Avoid The Storm Chasers:
You should always avoid the knock-on-the-door companies. These out-of-town storm-chasing roofing companies are the most publicized, yet people from across the state fall victim to them each and every day. Also referred to as roofing gypsies, these companies travel across the state following the paths of storms looking for homeowners to exploit. Your best bet is to select a roofing company from a referral or a sign posted in your neighborhood that has a happy, satisfied client on the other end of it. You should never be pressured into selecting a roofer by forceful tactics and you should never seal the deal with an out-of-town company.
Get It In Writing:
It’s critical to make sure that you have a contract or a detailed proposal from a roofer before agreeing to the project. Remember to clarify details pertaining to the project’s estimated date of completion, daily starting and ending times, materials expected to be used, enacted safety procedures, payment details, and don’t forget to ask about clean-up methods.
Check The Credentials:
According to the Better Business Bureau (BBB), you want to make sure that your chosen roofer has all of the proper documentation to perform their services. It’s important to seek the company’s business license, roofing credentials, workers’ compensation insurance, general liability insurance and written manufacturer warranties.
Communication Is Key:
It’s critical in the early stages to establish a communicative relationship with your roofing company. Are they returning your phone calls? Are they getting you’re the proper documentation you’ve requested? Are they following through? Is the answer to any of these questions is “no”, it’s critical to communicate these concerns to a company representative. If the problem isn’t solved then, it’s time to walk away. As with all businesses, communication is key. If a company isn’t getting you want you need on the front end when they’re still trying to get your business, what do you think will happen once they’ve already locked you in as a client?
