Answer

How do I ensure that I choose the right roofing contractor?

The best steps to take can be found in our pamphlet which is included with all of our proposals.
We have paraphrased that text here for your information and review. To view the document, please download the PDF version of our brochure

Step 1: Where to Begin
A roofing system is a complex combination of elements, the success of which depends on the quality of shingles, installation and overall construction. Referrals are obviously the best source for names of credible companies. Ask friends and family members who they have used in the past.

Step 2: Meeting and Evaluating Potential Contractors
After you have compiled a list of possible roofing contractors, take time to evaluate each one carefully. A professional contractor will be happy to provide any information you may require. Set up a meeting to discuss your needs and their qualifications, and be sure to pay close attention to the attitude of the company representative. Good contractors take pride in their work and will be happy and enthusiastic about the possibility of helping you with your roofing problems. Ask for the company's vital statistics - specific business information that will help you make your final decision:
Business Name and Address, Experience, Licensing / Bonding, Insurance Coverage, Professional References and Company Philosophy.

Step 3: Utilize the Contractor's Product Knowledge

Step 4: Consider Enhancements

Step 5: Understanding and Negotiating the Contract
A contractor who takes the time to prepare a good proposal will most likely do a more thorough roofing job. All items to be accomplished should be written as part of the contract. Get it in writing - beware of verbal promises. The contract should spell out the proposed work, prices, and completion date.

Step 6: Sit Back and Relax
A little well-planned research up front will undoubtedly save you a lot of time and trouble later on. Once you feel confident that you have the best contractor, the best products, the best value - simply relax and let your contractor do his job. Do, however, monitor the progress of your project to be certain your contractor lives up to its superior reputation.
