3 Tips to Keep in Mind When Looking for Roof Repair

Roof Repair

Roofing projects require careful planning and a quality contractor. So much is at stake should your roof fail and cause water damage in your home. We highly recommend that you seek out a roofing contractor that has the experience and the reputation to do an outstanding job.

Start Local

Every city or town, regardless of size has a number of roofing contractors that have offices or work in that location. The larger the town, the more choices available to you.

Working with a local roofing contractor has many advantages. Since the company operates locally, it is easier to get in touch with them. A local roofing contractor has less travel time when visiting your home for an estimate. It also makes delivering equipment and materials much easier.

A local roofing company with an established presence and reputation can help you make better decisions when it comes to roofing materials. A roofing contractor with years of experience will be able to recommend the best products for your location’s climate and weather patterns.

Licensed and Insured

When choosing the right roofing company for your roof repair, be sure to check their status with respect to licensing and insurance. Licensing is mandated by California state law. To apply for a C-39 license, the applicant must prove 4 years of experience and pass a competency test. The Contractors State License Board (CSLB) is the governing body for all contractors in the state of California. They are responsible for protecting the consumer and require that any construction service over $500 is performed by a qualified and registered contractor. A quality roofer will proudly share their license on their website, on business cards and documents, and offer it when requested.

Insurance is another important aspect of hiring a quality roofing company. Make sure your roofing contractor has liability insurance to protect your home from unnecessary costs.

A Final Tip – Don’t Choose Based on Price

Lower price does not necessarily equate to savings. Roofers who cut costs may be cutting corners or using cheaper materials. Find a roofer who insists on quality materials and who has a reputation for quality workmanship. You will be much happier with the result and more confident in how long your roof will last.
