When you want to have a perfect service with the needs to have your roofs replaced and or repaired or even installed for a first time, you definitely want the best of the services and as such you are to look for a roofing contractor who actually will answer some of the key questions relevant to their trade in the best possible manner and to your satisfaction. Think of asking that roofer you are seeking to contract some of these essential questions before handing them the deal to handle your roof replacement needs.
The first question you will ask your roofer is that which will be seeking to know if they actually have the licensing necessary for the trade. It is a requirement by law in most of the states that for one to practice roofing as a trade they must have with them the necessary licenses for the trade. Nonetheless, you will realize that the various states have their varied roofing regulations and as such you must thoroughly know which ones are applying to you specific locality which would thus mean that you do some bit of research on the regulations relevant to your locale. Ensure that in your dealing with the roofers, you abide by the state’s laws in a strict code. With these observed, you are assured of the state’s protection whenever something goes amiss later with the project. The contractor you are going to deal with should as well have a licensing status which is indeed updated and renewed as required for you to be safe dealing with them.
Question two; “Do you insure your roofers?”. The roofing contractors are by law required to have a worker’s compensation and liability cover to take care of the works that they will be undertaking in your home or property. In spite of this need by law, there are some roofing contractors and part time roofers who are still not heeding this call for provision of these compensation. This often happens to be so due to the fact that these needs to provide for insurance is often such an expensive option for most of them and as such not an easy burden to shoulder. If you happen to get down and deal with a roofing contractor who has not availed the worker’s compensation and liability cover for the project of roofing they will be undertaking, it may rebound on you quite seriously and cause you serious losses where there happens to be an accident in the course of the project for without the adequate provisions of insurance, the liability will transfer to you as the homeowner. As such always check not only the license of the roofers but as well there insurances. Remember that this can be a sure way to lose your home and you are not of the opinion to lose it that easily.
