With over 5000 roofers in DFW alone, how do you know who to trust?
Are they a General Contractor or just a Roofer?
A roofer will be looking at just the roof, while a general contractor will evaluate the entire property and work with your insurance to make sure EVERYTHING damaged is being replaced by insurance. With a roofing company, you will be responsible for finding the contractors for the other items, such as windows, gutters, paint, and more. A general contractor is a one-stop shop to take care of your property.
Are they LOCAL?
Every time a storm comes through the DFW area, “roofers” flock from all over the country to make a quick buck. For a few weeks after the storm, companies from all over will be in the area, knocking on doors and trying to earn some business. The problem for you, the property owner is – How will you contact them for warranty or repair work? It is great that they are giving you that warranty on their work, but what is the likelihood that they will travel back from out-of-state to actually honor your warranty?
Some questions to ask of every company that you are interviewing:
- In what city is your company office located? Can I visit the office?
- Did you work storms here from the past couple of years?
- Do you have local references from my city that I can contact?
Are they INSURED?
The State of Texas does NOT require contractors to carry liability insurance. This leaves you, the property owner, assuming a great deal of risk. Should a worker be injured while working on your property and the company not have the proper insurance, you as the property owner will be responsible for those damages.
Do not assume this risk upon yourself. If a company is not willing to provide the necessary insurance to cover their workers, what else may they be cutting corners on?
Are they rated with the Better Business Bureau?
At a minimum, any company you are interviewing should have a strong standing with the Better Business Bureau. An A+ rating will give you an idea of how long they have been in business and how they treat their customers, resolving any issues that may arise.
