Helpful Tips For Home Owners
There are hundreds of roofing contractors out there today who aren’t legally covered.
A few points you should consider when choosing your contractor:
- Liability Insurance: Most Important! Make sure your contractor can show proof of current commercial liability insurance. They should have a minimal of $2,000,000,000.00 liability. If NOT? You the homeowner are liable if someone is injured on the job site or damages to neighboring properties.
- WSIB Coverage: Ensure your contractor has current WSIB (Workplace Safety & Insurance Board) coverage – It’s the law!
- Contracts: Go over your contract thoroughly. Know what you’re getting into before obligating, and signing a contract. By signing you agree and accept all the terms & conditions on the agreement. Many contractors reuse & cover up old materials & omit important items to lower their price. There may be crucial materials or items missing from your contract that could pose a problem for you later on. Therefore, the cheapest price isn’t always the best job which could end up costing you more.
- Warranty: Not all roofing warranties are the same. Before choosing your roofing shingles, ask about exactly what the warranty covers. Fully understanding what a warranty covers helps homeowners make the right decision. Protect yourself! Make sure your contractor has been in business for at least 10 years & guarantees in writing to come back & promptly repair or replace at no extra charge to you, any defect in workmanship.
- References: Make sure your contractor can provide you with current and past references so you can check their work.
- BBB: Any good company should be a member of the BBB (Better Business Bureau) or local Chamber of Commerce. Contact your local BBB and ask if there are any unresolved complaints for the contractor you’re interested in.
