You shouldn’t just google contractors and pick the first one you find, because there are a lot of things that you need to consider before you hire someone to do your roof.

  • How long they have been in business.
  • If they are Licensed
  • If they are Certified
  • If they are Insured.
  • If they have good ratings and follow up with unsatisfied customers
  • If they are in the BBB

It is a good idea to get estimates from more than one company, probably at least three, and always be sure to get an estimate in writing. By getting multiple estimates you can make sure that you are paying a reasonable amount. It may be tempting to go for a lowball offer, but don’t! If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.

If an offer comes in too high or too low you will want to look closely at what services they are offering to make sure that there aren’t hidden fees that will come out to bite you later. It is also essential to make sure that a company is not only insured, but insured enough. Do not take for granted that every company you look at is licensed and certified, because a large number aren’t and you will be the one saddled with the consequences with no recourse. Especially in a place like Charlotte, you don’t want to wind up with a bad roof that won’t hold up to the weather so research your roofing contractor thoroughly!

With the potential to be duped by so many disreputable contractors, you may be wondering what you can do to protect yourself. Well, when you are researching a roofing contractor there are a few basic steps to start with to ensure that they are a trustworthy business. First, check if they show their contractors license info on their website. Also, follow up and find out if they are in the BBB and if they have good ratings. Additionally, see if they follow up on complaints and bad reviews from other clients in Charlotte. If they haven’t had good business practices in the past, chances are it will be the same in the future.
