|What To Expect|
Getting a new roof on your house is a major event, and it starts with hiring a licensed roofing contractor. This is one time in your life when you cannot afford to be anything but extremely picky. Companies claiming to be knowledgeable about roofs seem to suddenly pop out of thin air when you start to make inquiries. How do you determine the credibility of a contractor when you know nothing about the process? There are a few simple guidelines that help you make the best decision.
Roofing is a highly specialized field. You would not use an unlicensed doctor to do surgery on someone in your family, so why would you use a contractor without the proper credentials to work on your home? Your roof is the first line of defense between the elements and the integrity of your house. A sound, waterproof covering over your house means it will last for your lifetime and more. Water damage due to roof leaks can ruin a home from the roof all the way down to the basement. Home improvement companies have their place, but not on your roof!
A professional with a focus entirely on building, replacing and repairing roofs has the greater expertise. Using a state-approved contractor means you are protected as a consumer, since the contractor is required to adhere to the standards set out by the state. Don’t be tricked by a company claiming to give you the best deals of roof replacement. Cheapest is not always the best. If one company offers a price far lower than the other roofing companies in your area, perhaps it is because they are not carrying the proper license and insurances. Hiring a licensed roofing contractor means your rights as a consumer are protected and your new roof will be installed according to the Virginia building codes.
