How To Hire The Right Roofing Contractor
Your Dallas roofing is one of the most important aspects of your home. The problem is it also happens to be one of the most neglected. It is easy to understand why; who is going to make it a point to check on their rooftop unless they think they have a reason to do so. But this is what ends up leading to problems with your roof.
You should be having your rooftop inspected annually by trained and qualified professionals. And anytime we experience severe weather activity the same is true. Just because you do not see any damage with your untrained eye does not mean there isn’t any. In fact if you can easily detect a problem such as a leak or a hole it likely means the problem has been there and could have been corrected much earlier.
Keep in mind also, in the event of a storm that delivers potential damage to your roofing you need to act quickly. There is a relatively small time frame in which you can file a claim with your insurance company. Miss out on that window and you could be paying for your Dallas roof repairs out of your own pocket.
What to Look For
Because your roof is a delicate matter you need to hire the right roofing contractor who knows how to handle it correctly. This is not the time to settle for someone lacking training, licensing or insurance just to save a few dollars. Letting someone who is not qualified to work on your roof take care of this type of work could do more harm than good. Some qualifications should include but are not limited to:
- Experience – how many years in the industry?
- BBB Rating – should be an A+
- History – ask for references from previous clients
- Quality – workmanship matters above all else (other than licensing and insurance)
- Customer Service – don’t work with someone who is unconcerned with customer satisfaction
Although these are just a few they should give you an idea of where to start. Also, get your three estimates but don’t assume the lowest price is always the way to go. Too low a quote should actually be a red flag.
