Raise your hand if you’re excited about the fact that you need to hire a contractor to do work on your house. Anyone? No? We didn’t think so.
Hiring anyone do work on your house can be an enormous pain in the you-know-where, and if you’ve never needed to reroof your home before, you’re bound to feel a little overwhelmed.
The same can hold true even if you just need some basic roof repair.
If you’re in the early phases of hiring a Denver roofing company, this is a blog you’ll want to read. For this post, the experts at Capital Roofing & Restoration wanted to highlight some of the things you should look for.
First things first
If we’ve said it once we’ve said it a half dozen times. Do not hire a cut-rate roofer to do this type of work on your house. If you’re thinking about hiring Jack-of-all-trades contractor because he has a good price listed on Craigslist, or you’re wondering if you should hire the guy who has left a few business cards in your front door, we’re here to tell you both are terrible ideas.
To start, a reputable, experienced roofer isn’t posting ads on craigslist. You’ll want to look for a company that has a website, online reviews (ie: Yelp, Google+, Facebook, Angie’s List, etc.) and a brick and mortar address.
If the roofer you’re talking to only has a phone number, and you can’t find a physical location for them no matter how hard you look, there’s a very good chance this person isn’t licensed, and it’s even less likely that they’re insured.
Never, ever hire unlicensed and/or uninsured contractors to do any work on your home.
A reputable Denver roofing company will be able to provide you with a list of local references who have had similar work done on their homes. They’ll perform a free, no-obligation roof inspection and if they determine that there are one or more problems that need to be addressed, they’ll provide you with a free, detailed written estimate.
They should also take as much time as needed to answer any questions you have about how long the job will take and how long it will take you to get the work scheduled. If, at any point, you get the sense they’re trying to pressure you into committing to something today, without giving it further thought, this isn’t a company you want to hire.
