What can you do to ensure your satisfaction and safety?
A recent survey showed that only 55% of people who get roofing work done would refer their roofing contractor.
Feazel has earned its reputation by doing it right the first time, which in turn is the reason for high rates of referral and repeat business. All roofing contractors are not alike, and National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) recommends that you prequalify roofing contractors to get the job done right the first time.
NRCA recommended list of criteria:
- Check for a permanent place of business, telephone number, tax I.D. number and a business license.
- Insist on seeing copies of the contractor’s liability insurance coverage and workers’ compensation certificates. Make sure the coverage is in effect through the entire job.
- Look for a company with a proven track record that readily offers client references and a list of completed projects. Call these clients to find out whether they were satisfied.
- Check to see whether the contractor is properly licensed or bonded. Call your state’s licensing board for your state’s specific requirements (where applicable).
- Insist on a written proposal and examine it for complete descriptions of the work and specifications, including approximate starting and completion dates and payment.
- Check to see if the contractor is a member of any regional or national industry associations, such as NRCA.
- Call your local Better Business Bureau to check for any complaints that have been filed.
