Hiring a Professional Roofer for Hail Damage Roof Repair
If you have recently had a storm in your area, then you may need someone to do hail damage roof repair. Hail can tear up your roofing shingles and cause thousands of dollars in repairs. However, it is best to take your time, do your homework, and not hire the first person that comes knocking on your door offering to do the job. Noah’s Roofing & Construction can help!
Do Your Homework!
Since you are relying on the contractor to be in business years from now in order to back up their workmanship warranty, it is best to get local referrals. In addition, those that work in the area tend to be more familiar with local rules and code regulations and have a relationship with area crews and suppliers.
Once you have some names that you can use for hail damage roof repair, be sure to go online and look for proper licensing and insurance. The contractor you use needs to have insurance for all of their employees and subcontractors. They should also be able to provide a copy of their insurance certificate for validation. If a contractor does not have adequate insurance, it could potentially lead to litigation between a contractor and homeowner if an employee sustains an injury at the home. While most states require licensing for contractors, it does not stop unlicensed contractors from attempting to do the work. Additionally, look to see how long the companies have been in business and if they have manufacturer designations. These are important because the contractor must pass certain minimum requirements in order to receive them.
What to Look for When You Need Hail Damage Roof Repair
After you know that those you are looking at for hail damage roof repair are properly licensed and insured, you should also check their rating with the Better Business Bureau and see if you can find any reviews online. At that point, schedule them to come out and give you an estimate. Then, once you are satisfied that you found the right company to do hail damage roof repair on your house, be sure to obtain and sign a written contract that includes start and completion dates, as well as exact costs, explanation of the specific work to be done, and warranty information. Be sure to read the fine print carefully before you sign it. You also need to be sure that your insurance deductible has been met and that the adjuster has been out to evaluate your home.
