Choosing a Miami Roofing Repair Contractor To Hire

This can be an exercise in wasting time and money. Here are a few tips to avoid that frustration.

  • Verify that the roofing contractor you hire has the required applicable business licenses for your state or local area. If you are unsure of the business licenses required for roofing contractors in your area, contact the licensing board or Department of Professional Regulation for your area or state.

  • Verify that the roofing contractor or business is legitimate by asking for their business card, tax identification number, a business address, business website or email address, and contact phone number.

  • Ask the roofing contractor to provide you with proof of insurance, including worker's compensation and liability coverage.

  • Check with the contractor to verify that the insurance covers the entire time-span during which the roofing project takes place.

  • Ask the roofing contractor for a list of references and past clients you can call to find out if they were satisfied with the work done on their roof.

  • Ask the roofing contractor how many people will be working on your home so you can determine how the work will be supervised and how long it will take to complete.

  • Read the warranty information for your project in full and check for understanding with the roofing contractor regarding any actions or exceptions that may possibly void the warranty.

  • Obtain a contract or detailed proposal in writing from the roofing contractor that will provide explicit information regarding the project.

  • Ask about the length of the project, daily start and end times, roofing materials to be used, safety procedures, the amount of payment and payment schedule, and clean-up methods.

Do your homework to avoid a bad experience.
