Roofing contractors do all kind of roofing works, from roofing inspections and maintenance operations, to repairs and new roof installations, for all types of buildings. Most of them specialize in certain types of services (residential roofing, commercial roofing, solar panel installation etc.), by going through a certification process.
They work year round, including in winter, because nowadays the advancements in the roofing industry make it possible to perform roof work even when it is cold. Besides, emergencies happen all the time, regardless the season.
Reliable roofing contractors are licensed, certified, insured and always work on a legal contract basis. Roofing works are expensive, and clients should not take any risk by accepting to pay for unqualified services.
Here are a few things to expect when you contact a roofing contractor:
- You are entitled to receive written proof of the roofer`s credentials (copies of certificates, a list of referrals, etc.)
- Your roof must be inspected by a specialist and you must get a written estimate that has to include materials, costs and other important information that will be written in the contract too, once you agree on it.
- You must receive warranties for the services you pay for (warranties for the materials and workmanship)
