Choosing the right roofing contractor to carry out roof repairs, inspections, installations or restorations on your home is essential. Your roof is one of the most important elements of your property when it comes to functionality, protection and its overall value. By putting your trust in experienced, qualified professionals, you can have the peace of mind that your roof will be repaired properly. Below are some important factors to note when choosing your roofing contractor.
Qualified and Licenced
Hiring licenced, qualified, experienced and insured tradespeople is always important. DIY work is unsafe and unreliable. Qualified and licenced roofing contractors know the ins-and-outs of the roofing industry, so you can be sure that no minor details are being overlooked and no corners are being cut. With an in-depth understanding of the best practices in roof repairs, you know you’ll be getting the best possible advice and solutions.
Choosing a licensed roofing contractor is safer, not just for you, but for any other workers on the job. Unlike some other states, Western Australia has no specific roofing licence, meaning roofing contractors are generally covered by a Building Practitioner licence from the WA Building Commission.
Proven Track Record
Plenty of experience and a good track record of successful projects is something else you should look out for when choosing a roofing contractor. These days you can find testimonials on websites, Google and social media accounts. There’s no better way to gauge the professionalism and credibility of a roofing contractor than by seeing how many satisfied past customers they have.
Choosing a local roofing contractor is a good idea for multiple reasons. A good experience of the local climate and other factors unique to the area allow them to make better recommendations in materials and their approaches. Choosing a local expert also means that if anything goes wrong with the project, they’re close by.
Warranty and Insurance
When choosing a roofing contractor, ensure they offer warranty and insurance. A variety of things can go wrong during roofing projects, even when they’re in expert hands. With proper warranty and insurance, you’ll be protected in the case of problems created by human error or natural causes. You’ll want to choose a professional that provides a robust insurance policy. A generous warranty period is another thing to look for. Depending on the kind of work you’re getting and the coverage your roofing contractor offers, you may be offered warranty for one to five years.
