Whenever a Colorado hailstorm rips through a community, homeowners are faced with the task of hiring a roofing contractor to inspect the hail roof repair. Several guidelines should be followed to help you make an informed decision and to ensure that any necessary work will be done right.
Roofs… First line of defense against Mother Nature!
Why should I repair/replace the roof? Roofs are one of the most important parts of a home or building because they protect the structure from the natural elements such as wind, rain, fire, ice, snow, extreme heat and hail.
Don’t Sign Anything
If you are asked to sign anything by a solicitor knocking on your door, don’t sign it right away and don’t assume it is just an estimate or permission to get on your roof.
Take time to follow the necessary steps and understand that quality contractors will be busy shortly after a major storm.
Call your Insurance Company
It is solely the insurance adjuster’s job to assess the damage. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to choose the roofing contractor.
Check Out the Contractors
This is probably the single most important thing you can do to make sure you are a satisfied customer.
The agreement should clearly state materials to be used and labor to be performed, along with terms of payment and who is responsible for permits, etc.
Proof of Insurance
Proof of insurance, including Workers’ Compensation and General Liability, should be verified before the contract is signed.
This should be in writing and the contractor should be able to provide you with a sample for your review before signing a contract. Determine your needs, don’t allow yourself to be pressured, make a smart decision and you’ll be pleased with your investment.
