Choosing a company to work on your home is a very big decision that can’t be taken lightly. How do you determine you’re getting the best value for your home? More importantly, how do you know you can trust the company to do the work right the first time? Will they stand behind their work at the end of the day?
No matter whom you choose to work on your home, there are some core questions that you should feel comfortable with before you sign any agreement. Before your pen hits their paper, be sure to get these three questions asked:
- Does your company hold the proper licenses, insurance and bonds?
This is a very important question for any homeowner to ask. If your contractor doesn’t hold all the right licenses, insurance and bonds for their workers, you could be held liable in the event of a workplace accident. This could turn a simple roof replacement into a major headache for your family. Mr. Roof always carries the proper licenses and insurance, making sure you’re covered in all conditions. After all, coverage shouldn’t just apply to your roof!
- Who is responsible for the material bill on my new roof?
While you might not think to ask this question when it comes to your new roof, it’s a very important topic of discussion. If your roofer isn’t covering the material bill, then you could be responsible for additional charges. And if you don’t pay, the supplier could put a mechanic’s lien against your home. Mr. Roof has a high credit score with Dunn & Bradstreet, and will always cover the material bill on any job you complete.
- What exactly does your warranty cover?
Most roofs will come with a warranty. What it exactly covers, however, is another topic of discussion. Many roofing companies will only offer a warranty on their labor ? but first, you must prove that their labor caused your roof to fail. Though manufacturers do offer a warranty on materials, this may only cover pro-rated materials. Mr. Roof’s Premier Lifetime Warranty covers both materials and labor ? if anything goes wrong, we have you covered.
