We've compiled a quick checklist to help you avoid roofing scams and save as much money as possible.

Here Are Our Top 6 Tips to Hire The Best Roofing Contractor in Your Area

1. HAVE A WRITTEN CONTRACTA proper contract should spell out the work to be performed, your cost, and when it will be completed.

2. DON’T PAY IT ALL UP FRONTInsist on a payment schedule based on work completed. It is common to break out payments into three portions to ensure timely work.

3. KNOW WHO YOU LET IN YOUR HOMEMake sure your contractor performs background checks on all employees and sub-contractors

4. REQUIRE PROOF OF INSURANCELicensed contractors must carry Workers’ Compensation Insurance and General Liability Insurance. Require proof of these policies to protect yourself.

5. GET A WARRANTYReputable roofers and contractors will provide a warranty for their work. A 2-year warranty is common for interior and other work, while many of our Roofers will provide warranties many years longer.
