Hiring a Roofer Contractor
When hiring a roofer contractor, it’s important to find a professional who’s licensed and bonded in your area. You can do this through the State Board of Building Regulations and Standards. This type of license is more advanced than a Home Improvement Registration and does require an exam. It also requires three years of experience in the field. In addition, you need a roofing license to perform work on asbestos-containing structures.
Check the insurance policy to make sure the contractor can complete the repairs within the time frame stated in the policy. Some policies only cover certain types of materials or a portion of the repairs. It’s important to discuss this information with the contractor. Also, ask about insurance fraud. Some roofers have been scammed by a roofing insurance adjuster, so it’s important to make sure you don’t become the victim.
