After a storm or a hurricane, we receive many calls from concerned building owners. At Don Schmidt Roofing, we understand the importance of having the right information when you need it most. The following information is recommended by the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA).
Often following a natural disaster, unprofessional 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.
A professional roofing contractor should have:
A permanent place of business
Knowledge of various roof systems
Proof of insurance and an effective safety program
Evidence of industry professionalism, such as proof of training, manufacturer certifications, association membership, business account balance statement, etc.
Continuing industry education
A written proposal
A license and/or be bonded
References in your state (Proceed with caution if the contractor only provides out-of-state references.)
A maintenance programs
Beware of a contractor:
Whose references are all out of state
Who only wants cash
Who wants money before materials are on site
Who offers “specials” or “extra-cheap” work
