Hiring a roofing contractor in Atlanta
Hiring a roofer can be complicated, but it's not impossible.
When you're considering hiring a roofing contractor, there several factors you need to consider. Thankfully, with a little investigative know-how, you can avoid some of the common issues that are indicative of bad experiences. To help you, we've provided some key questions you should ask yourself or your potential contractor to ensure your roofing experience is a great one.
Are roofers in my area required to be licensed?
Many states and local municipalities require roofing contractors to be licensed. This typically means these roofers will take certain tests to prove they have a working knowledge of roof systems and the code requirements and other laws in your area.
Are the terms of the contract clearly defined?
The proposal you receive from any contractor should be clear, easy to read, and should define all of the work to be done. It should explain when payments are to be made by you, and how much each of those payments are to be. Keeping you informed is a big part of our job, but having everything in writing protects both parties.
Are you a licensed contractor?
If a license is required in your area, be sure that you find a contractor who is licensed (and that their license is in good standing). You can also check state or local authority websites to find out more about your potential contractor.
Do you Carry Insurance?
Most roofing contractors will carry insurance that will cover any accidental damage they may inflict on your property, as well as on employees who may be working on your project. Many licensing agencies will require certain levels of insurance based on the project a contractor takes on. A good contractor carries a current insurance policy that can be verified by a phone call to the agent.
How long have you been in business?
A general rule of thumb states the longer a contractor has been in business, the better they are. But this isn't always the case. Oftentimes a contractor who is just starting their business is a talented installer who decided to go out of their own. So while length of time in business can be helpful, only you can decide if you are comfortable with someone who is just starting out.
Do you have references?
Past customer experiences are a great way to learn more about a roofing contractor. If there is a long list of great testimonials, it's more likely you'll be happy with their services. In that same vein, if you are happy with the service you receive, take the time to write a testimonial for the contractor. They will greatly appreciate it, and so will their potential customers!
Does the contractor have online reviews?
In today's world, it's much easier to find reviews of companies online. Roofing contractors are no exception. Doing a bit of research on a company in advance can save you a big headache in the future.
Do you have photos from past projects?
Ask to see photos of past projects, whether those pictures on a website or simply on a contractor's phone. This is a great way to see past work and to ensure undertaken projects have actually been completed.
Other Tips from Our Atlanta Residential Roofing Experts
Use common sense
Putting some thought into your decision in advance can save you a great deal of difficulty in the future. You should hire a company who meets your expectations and with whom you are comfortable.
Cheaper is not better
Contractors who offer a price that is substantially lower than other estimates should be given a great deal of scrutiny. If you are considering working with a cheaper contractor, make sure they are going to be installing the same quality products and doing it in the same way a more expensive contractor would. Typically, money is only saved by cutting corners and not carrying insurance or a license. These factors can have a profound effect on the outcome of your project.
