Your roof is considered the most important part of your house. That’s why ensuring it’s sturdy and durable is an utmost priority. Over time, you will have to call a residential roofing contractor for a thorough inspection and for maintenance. To help ensure you aren’t dealing with a fake professional, here are the usual statements you need to be aware of.
- “I Can Have Your Roof Inspection Done in Less Than an Hour”
Any roofer who insists they can finish a roof inspection this quickly isn’t doing the right assessment that’s needed to find what has to be fixed. They should run an in-depth visual inspection of each layer and feature and provide you with a report on the status, its deficiencies and recommendations.
- “Your Roof Needs Immediate Replacement.”
Similar to normal check-ups for your car, never forget to seek a second opinion if the roofer suggests a replacement. Keep in mind that, unlike old roofs, the modern ones are guaranteed to last for over a decade. However, it may require routine inspections and small repairs to maintain its best condition. A reliable contractor would always take appropriate measures to perform an analysis, then decide whether or not a replacement is essential.
- “I Don’t Have a Certificate of Insurance.”
Remember to always be cautious and vigilant. Reputable teams should also have valid workers’ compensation and general liability insurance. It’s an assurance that you will be provided coverage for property damage and protect you from losses in case an accident occurs.
