Taking care of your roof is a lofty responsibility for you and your Twin Cities roofers. After all, if you don’t take the best care of your roof, it won’t take the best care of your home. So, which roofing company do you trust to call for roof maintenance, repairs, replacement or emergency service? That’s a big question with three big answers. Keep reading to learn how to vet your new roofing contractor.
Legally Licensed, Bonded and Insured
Residential roofing contractors are licensed by the Minnesota Department of Labor & Industry (DLI). The DLI requires certain standards, ongoing education and professional conduct be maintained by your Twin Cities roofers.
So, any Prospective roofing contractor should be transparent in their business practices and follow all local and state regulations, codes and laws. This includes full cooperation in allowing you to verify their contractor license, bonding and liability and workers’ comp insurance information. You don’t want to be fined or held financially responsible for work-related accidents just because you didn’t make a few verification phone calls and/or internet searches.
Check Professional Credentials
Your Twin Cities roofers should meet stellar customer service criteria, and demonstrate their worth with work references and professional credentials. The first place to start is with your local Better Business Bureau (BBB). The BBB provides a forum to resolve customer service and/or workmanship disputes.
Additionally, you can trust that reputable and major manufacturers of roofing and home exterior products will only certify contractors that have met stringent ethical, knowledge and installation guidelines and standards. So, look for Twin Cities roofers with the following professional credentials:
- GAF Master Elite Contractor
- Owens Corning Platinum Contractor
- Pella Certified Contractor
Lastly, don’t be hesitant to ask for references of recent work similar in scope to your project, performed in your area. The point is, you want to make sure that the customers of your prospective contractors are fully satisfied with their projects, and that they would hire the same roofing company again.
Twin Cities Roofers That Stand Behind Their Work
Only work with roofing companies that offer workmanship, labor and roofing material guarantees and warranties in writing. After all, your roofing project is only going to be as trustworthy as the contract you sign and the company that’s backing it up.
