Questions about a roof installer
I have a home in Concord, NC, and I need a new roof. Should I try a local roofer or a national one?
A local roofer. They depend much more on repeat business in the area and positive word of mouth.
Where can I get good advice about roof installers in this area?
The first thing you should do is ask your friends, your neighbors and any family who live in the Charlotte area. They may know of a roof installer you should try, or they may be able to point you away from one you should avoid. Also, look at the web sites of roof installers for testimonials. They’ll all be positive, of course, so the more of them there are, the better. Also, look up their ratings on the Better Business Bureau website. A good company will have a rating in the A range. Angie’s List and Owens Corning also provide ratings of roof installers.
Where can I find reviews of roof installers that will give me both sides of the story?
You can find both positive and negative reviews at the websites of Angie’s List, Google Places, Yahoo Local, Manta, Merchant Circle and YellowPages.com. Remember that a negative review isn’t an automatic disqualifier — if the roof installer responded and resolved the complaint, that’s a very good sign.
What’s the most important question to ask about a Charlotte roof installer?
There are many, but the first is whether the roof installer has a license to work in the state of North Carolina. You can find this out at the web site of the North Carolina Licensing Board for General Contractors (www.nclbgc.org). Having a license doesn’t mean the company is reliable, but if they don’t have one, it means you should cross them off your list right now. Look up their insurance and workmen’s compensation while you’re at it.
When talking to the roof installer, what questions should I ask?
Ask if they can supply any references from previous customers who’ve had roofs similar to yours that they have installed in the last few years. Ask them how long the project will take and how much it will cost. You should also ask if this job will require a permit, and if the installer will farm out any of the work to another roofing contractor.
