It’s always important to have your roof checked from time to time. This practice enables you to save a lot of money and energy on future expenses that could have been avoided. This is why getting the right roofing contractor for your project is vital. As a guide, here are telltale statements you need to be aware of, to ensure you aren’t dealing with a fake professional.
1. “I Can Have Your Roof Inspection Done in Less Than an Hour”
Remember to always be cautious and vigilant. Any contractor who insists they can complete a roof inspection this quickly isn’t doing the right assessment that’s necessary to find subtle wear and damage. They should run in-depth visual inspections of each layer and furnish a report to you stating deficiencies and recommendations.
2. “I Don’t Have a Certificate of Insurance.”
Verify if your solar roof company is properly licensed in Northern California. Take note that good and credible teams should also have valid workers’ compensation and general liability insurance. These will ensure you will be provided coverage for property damage and protect you from losses in case an accident occurs.
3. “Your Roof Needs Immediate Replacement.”
Like normal check-ups, never forget to seek a second opinion if the roofer suggests a replacement, most especially if your roof is relatively new. Modern roofs are guaranteed to last for over a decade. However, you still need to make routine inspections and small fixes to help it maintain its healthy condition. A reliable contractor would always take appropriate measures to perform a thorough inspection, then decide whether or not a replacement is needed.
