Sizing up roofers is never straightforward, but it is easier than ever. With the proper deduction, you could separate reputable contractors from unreliable ones based on their basic details, credentials, and claims.
If you ask Gulf Coast Roofing, below are the most important questions you should ask to determine whether a prospective roofing contractor should be trusted.
What Is Your Business Address?
Knowing where the company’s office is located can say a lot about its integrity and service. Local roofers are more trustworthy because they rely on repeat business within the communities they serve.
In comparison, you should not expect storm chasers, fly-by-nighters who visit towns affected by bad weather and go from door to door looking for unwitting customers, to offer quality service and accept accountability. A storm chaser may hang you out to dry by disappearing on you in the event of a likely workmanship error.
Are Your Certified by Any Roofing Manufacturer?
Manufacturer certification is more than just a marketing tool. As a customer, you should use it to vet roof replacement contractors, for leading brands like GAF set high standards for their partner roofers. For instance, being properly licensed and adequately insured are prerequisites to receiving a GAF Master Elite™ certification.
What Is Your BBB Rating?
According to the Better Business Bureau’s rating system, roofers that are rated A-plus comply with government requirements, practice transparent advertising, have been in the business long enough, and iron out disputes with consumers satisfactorily.
There is no such thing as a perfect roof coating contractor. But a roofer with an A-plus BBB rating is guaranteed to deliver best-in-class service.
