The appearance, performance and longevity of your roofing system largely depend on how it is installed. It’s the reason you must only trust experienced professionals for the job. One of the best ways to make the most of your investment is to hire a local contractor for your roof replacement project.
Continue reading to discover the possible consequences of hiring an out-of-town roofer.
Often, out-of-town contractors focus on completing as many jobs as possible. As a result, the outcome of your project could suffer. Once you’ve noticed imperfections or problems with your roof, the installers have likely disappeared. It could be hard to reach them to fix the issue or get your money back.
Not Meeting Local Codes
Local contractors are more knowledgeable about local codes, which an out-of-town roofer might not know about. If you have a roof that is not up to code, you could end up paying fines. You will also need to spend more money having the roof repaired to meet local regulations.
Lack of Insurance
Insurance protects you if property damage occurs or if a worker is injured during the project. Without insurance, you could be held liable for anything that goes wrong while workers are replacing or repairing your roof. Before hiring anyone to work on your home, ask for proof of license and insurance.
