Tips to finding a trustworthy roof contractor
Roof estimates allow customers to collect a variety of proposals from reputable roofers, but it is also a good time to ask important questions and assess whether this is the reliable roofing company you want to have do the job at your Kernersville NC and Triad home. Good communication is essential when choosing a roofer, and should not be confined to one question – can you repair my roof? Does the roof contractor call you back in a timely fashion, listen to your needs, or return your e-mails? If the answer is no, then maybe you should go to the next contractor on your list. How comfortable do you feel with this person? Roofing companies are in your home for days, weeks, or sometimes months. It is important to feel comfortable with this person. Trustworthy roof contractors will offer client references, but make sure to check them. Always listen to that little voice inside your head, it is rarely wrong. Completion date of the project should always be included in your estimate. Roofing jobs with reputable roof companies are always done in a timely manner, with attention to detail to get the job right the first time. Written proposals should be detailed with exact materials, brand names, costs, and a payment schedule. A scribbled estimate on the back of a business card is never okay! Clients overlook details such as where the dumpster will go for debris; start and end time during the work day; smoking restrictions for technicians; and whether weekend work is included, but these are important details that can make your remodel pleasant or miserable. Down payments should never exceed one-third of the estimated cost of roof repair or remodel. A change in orders should always be written out separately and signed by the roofing company and homeowner. Roof estimates made with these tips in mind will help homeowners find a trustworthy roofing company for their needs!
