Roofing Tip: Hire a company with references
If your roof needs repair or replacement it is imperative that you pick the right Fort Worth roofing company to do the job. There are a lot of dos and don’ts when it comes to making your choice. Some examples are: do ask questions, do shop around, don’t throw darts at the Yellow Pages and expect good results. One consistent roofing tip you’ll come across is to make sure to check references. There are quite a few different types of references you want to look at and that’s what we’ll explore here.
A reliable Fort Worth roofer will be able to provide you with a business name, phone number and street address. Don’t hesitate to check out the reliability of that information by visiting the address to verify that it is a permanent office and not just a mailing address for appearance sake.
This is a way for you to use yourself as a reference point. When you are talking with a potential roofer he should be able to answer your questions regarding his own experience level, the experience level of his crew, the type of work he is qualified for and his basic philosophy when it comes to his business. He should be able to explain his guarantees regarding material and workmanship.
If your Fort Worth roofer has been around for any length of time, he should be able to show you a portfolio of some of his work and provide you with some customer contacts who are willing to talk to you about their experience. If you end up as a satisfied client you may provide this same service someday.
Your prospective contractor may belong to professional trade associations. If so, he should be able to provide you with contact information.
The Better Business Bureau is another place to check on a Fort Worth roofer, in both negative and positive fashion. Check to see if there have been any negative reviews and what their rating is. Old Pro has an A+ rating and you will not find any negative reviews.
Reliable Fort Worth roofers will not only carry liability insurance, but will carry sufficient amounts as well. If a project bid seems very low, it may be because the company is inadequately insured.
Usually a negative reference, it may be worth your while to see if any complaints have been posted online about a roofer you are considering. If you see something you don’t like contact that poster for details.
You should be able to get a pretty good idea about a Fort Worth roofing company if you take the above-mentioned steps. No single item is a solid guarantee of good service but the more you know the better your chances are of finding the right people for the job.
