Checklist For Hiring a Gainesville GA Roofing Contractor

Gainesville GA Roofing Contractor ChecklistIf you have a reason to work with a Gainesville GA roofing contractor you need to ensure that you understand why you are hiring them before you begin your search. Do you desire your whole roofing system changed, do you need some leaks repaired, or are you calling due to storm damage?

Specify the Roofing Task

Make a list of the requirements of the project to include a list of all desired materials needed, the type of roofing you are considering, and whether it’s a complete replacement or if leaks have to be fixed. Even if it’s a replacement and you have leaks, be sure to point out that so you can be ensured all leakages are taken care of properly.

Call Your Insurance Agent

If you require your roof repaired due to storm damage you need to initially make a claim with your insurance agent. They will more than likely have a list of authorized specialists and will send someone out to evaluate your claim and provide you with an exact figure as to what they will cover and what you need to pay based on your deductible. They’ll normally have more than one professional that you can select from. If they do, follow all the steps before to choose which contractor to use.

Ask For Referrals From People You Know and Trust

If this is not an insurance claim you can ask your family and friends for referrals. Most of the time a family or friend will have had roof work done and understand who to call. They’ll understand whether or not they were pleased with the work done. They can inform you whether they got done on time and within the bidding budget too. This can offer you a great list of roofing contractors to call.

Examine The Truth

When you have a good list, look into them to ensure that they do have licensing, accreditation and insurance that they’re expected to have in order to do the work of a Gainesville GA roofing contractor. You must have the ability to find websites with information about each of the recommendations. You can also call them and request for license numbers and other information prior to you set up an interview.

Invite Roofing Contractors to Quote
