Roof installers- find the best
If you need a new roof, you need a roof installer whose work you can count on. The roof on your home keeps the elements out and the heat in, and protects your valuables from water damage. Especially in winter, even in Charlotte, NC, it keeps your house habitable.
Certain things are absolute requirements for any roof installer, starting with a license to work in the state, insurance and workmen’s compensation. Check the web site of the North Carolina Licensing Board for General Contractors (www.nclbgc.org)for the license. If this company doesn’t have a license, don’t even think about hiring it to install your roof — even letting them work on it would void the warranty.
Look online, talk to your friends
Start by asking your friends and neighbors, and any family who live in the area, if they’ve had any roof installers work for them.Look at local installers’ websites. Of course, all the reviews there will be positive, so look for quantity.To find a more balanced selection of reviews, check the websites of Angie’s List, Google Places, Yahoo Local, Manta, Merchant Circle and YellowPages.com.One negative review doesn’t necessarily mean the roof installer is bad — it’s a good sign if the installer made an effort to address the customer’s concerns. While you’re online, look up the ratings of roof installers on the Better Business Bureau website. A good company should have a rating in the A range. Angie’s List and Owens Corning also offer ratings.
Talking to a roof installer
When you talk to the roof installer, ask about the timetable and cost of the project. You should also ask if this particular job will require a permit, and if the installer is going to subcontract any of the work.Also, be sure to ask for references from any previous customers of theirs who have had roofs similar to yours installed in the past few years.
Try to get six or seven bids for this project. If in doubt, pick one of the bids in the middle. You should be suspicious of a bid that’s unusually low, and if a bid is too high it doesn’t necessarily mean the roof installer does work of higher quality.
