How To Hire The Best Roofing Contractor

how to hire the best roofing contractor

When deciding on your next roofing project there are a couple of things you must keep in mind apart from roofing specifications. When making big decisions be sure to do your own homework on which contractor will be a risky hire, and which company will be the best fit for you based on reviews and past experience. Regardless of how big or small a job may be here are a few key points to remember when determining who you will trust your home with.

What is a risky hire?

While roofing is one of the most dangerous jobs in the construction trade, there are laws around hiring people to work on your home.

If the contractor you bring to your home has minimal or no workers’ compensation coverage or insurance, you run the chance of being liable if any of the workers get hurt while working on your home. The last thing you want to do is to have to pay for your roofer’s medical bills.

It’s no surprise that companies who don’t prioritize liability coverage also don’t prioritize safety hence having this coverage is both the right thing to do and required by law.

Anyone willing to break the law and put their own staff at risk, shows the limited business experience they may have and it might be best to choose another contractor to avoid headaches.

A common warning sign is a constant ask for more money and lack of communication during the roofing process. 

Believe it or not, it takes a well trained team to properly execute a full roofing job.

A common warning sign is if the company does not have references or a trusted website. Also be on the lookout for recent online google reviews. These are just a few things that can bring peace of mind, when doing your own due diligence or research.

Another thing that has potential to be a bad hire, could be what most people know as “jack of all trades”. While they may be knowledgeable in many fields, nothing can replace years of experience installing thousands of roofs like a local and reputable contractor.

Keep in mind that a manufacturer in most cases won’t even consider their work to be any higher quality than if you did the roof yourself and therefore you won’t get much guarantee on your shingle product.

Make the right hire the first time with a community backed contractor. 

They say a sign of an expert is the ability to explain complex situations in simple terms and for that reason, we have simplified work contracts and clear estimates that allows you to understand the processes and steps on your home project.

Choose the contractor that can prove they have the insurance and workers’ compensation needed. You don’t want to be caught in an instance where there is an emergency on your property and there is no liability.

At Boss Roofing we are factory trained to inspect and install shingles. Once we help you determine the right shingle for your home, our manufacturer-certified installers will make sure that your install qualifies for the best coverage in the industry.

We also take our initial job site setup and final cleanup extremely seriously. One piece of equipment that we frequently use is our mobile dumpster. This mobile trash catcher allows us to reach many areas inaccessible to traditional dump trailers and bins without damaging the property. Thanks to its large soft tires, once in position, we lift up the bin to safely catch material directly off the roof. We then move the debris and safely dispose of it. Because we specialize in roofing we only invest in the best tools and equipment for the job. We do our very best for you!

In conclusion avoid unwanteds headaches with risky hires, and make the right choice with an experienced and established roofing company like Boss Roofing.
