Where to Begin a Roofing Project in Bradenton And Sarasota, FL

1. Where to Begin

A roofing system is a complex combination of elements, the success of which depends on the quality of shingles, installation, and overall construction. Ask friends and family members who they have used in the past. Contact your local Chamber of Commerce about roofing contractors who are active in the community. The Better Business Bureau, state and local licensing authorities, local trade associations, and your local Yellow Page directory are also excellent sources of information.
 
 

2. Meeting and Evaluating Contractors

A professional contractor will be happy to provide any information you may require. To get a roofer to respond to your call, tell him you are shopping around, but are only interviewing three contractors, not ten. A contractor is shopping for good jobs that will make a fair profit and bring future referrals. Set up a meeting to discuss your needs and their qualifications.
A good, professional contractor will provide the company's permanent business address and telephone number, the training and experience of the contractor, as well as the age the company. This will help you determine their ability to successfully complete your roofing project.
Florida requires special licensing for roofing contractors. Ask for their business license numbers and information on the company that bonds the contractor. Then check with local authorities to see that the company complies with regulations.
A contractor should carry worker's compensation and general liability insurance. Request the name and address of the insurance carrier, and a copy of the company's insurance certificate. Beware of low bids, read the entire proposal. Beware of extra costs that may make the original estimate appear lower but may cost you more in the end.

3. Aesthetic Additions

Aesthetic additions, such as enhanced high-profile hip and ridge shingles or skylights, should be reviewed. When done in conjunction with a roofing project, this will save you money.

4. Consult Your Attorney

Consult your attorney for legal advice as to the terms and conditions of your contract. You should read your contract thoroughly and make sure it is clear and that you understand it. Ask for any protection you need that is not in the contractor's "standard form."
