As a key component in your home’s protection and beauty, your roof should always be in top shape. Over time, however, constant exposure to harsh elements can compromise its structural integrity. To maintain your home’s protection, a replacement is in order when it’s too far for repairs.
When choosing a roofer, we advise thorough research before employing anyone. By working with a reputable roofing company, you can greatly reduce the potential for problems. Here are a few things you should consider.
Ask for Proof of License and Insurance
Before hiring a roofer, ask them for proof of their roofing contractor license. Since licensing requirements vary per state, be sure to verify whether the license is up to date and has no outstanding violations in your state. It’s important to note that a business license and a roofing contractor license are not the same. The former only identifies the company and does not mean that the person is qualified as a roofer. While a license ensures their qualifications, a workman’s compensation and liability insurance protect you from expenses in case of any accidents or damage on your property during construction.
Look for Manufacturer Certifications
Not all roofers can deliver the same quality of work, and this is where manufacturer designations come in. They are proof that a contractor has passed the stringent standards of a manufacturer and has showcased extensive knowledge on the practices and techniques of the industry they are in.
Innovative Roofing and Siding takes pride in being one of the top roofers certified as a GAF Master Elite™ contractor. One of the leading innovators in the roofing industry, GAF gives this designation to the top 3% of roofers in the country. This means we can provide top-notch services, from a quality roof repair to flawless replacements, for your home.
Confirm If There are Warranties
A solid warranty ensures that your roof will stay in top shape for a long time. Warranties usually cover two areas: the material and the workmanship. Unfortunately, not all roofers can offer warranties that cover both. As a Master Elite roofer, we offer you GAF’s strongest coverage: Golden Pledge® Limited warranty. This provides up to 20 years of coverage for material defects and up to 25 years for workmanship.
