Beware of the roofing scams after a spring storm

Often following a big storm, unprofessional roofing contractors will try to take advantage of unsuspecting homeowners. If it is necessary to hire a roofing contractor for roof repairs, you should keep a healthy skepticism about the lowest bid. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Price is only one criterion for selecting a professional roofing contractor; professionalism and quality workmanship also must be considered. Take some time to evaluate potential contractors before any re-roofing work begins.

Things too look for in a professional roofer, They have permanent place of business, A license and/or be bonded, Knowledge of various roof systems, A maintenance program, A written proposal, Warranties, Financial stability, Proof of insurance and an effective safety program, Continuing industry education, References, and last but not least Evidence of industry professionalism, such as proof of training, manufacturer certifications, association membership, business account balance statement, etc.

Things to look for in a unprofessional roofer, only wants cash, references are all out of state, wants money before materials are on site, offers extra-cheap work.
