What I Can Teach You About Services
Here are Some of the Key Questions the Roofer You are Contemplating to Hire Answer Prior to Handing them the Deal
There are some fundamental questions which your roofer should get you answers to before you get satisfied with them to offer you the quality of services you expect with your roofing replacement. By asking the roofer some of the questions below, you will really have improved your chances at handing a deal with a really qualified roofer for your roofing needs.
The first question you will ask your roofer is that which will be seeking to know if they actually have the licensing necessary for the trade. Most states often have the requirement that all of the roofers plying trade get their licenses before setting out for the trade finally. However, you need to bear in mind that the laws regarding roofers are of different sorts as per the varied states that are there and as such you will need to do some little research on your particular state’s regulations for the roofers and even more specifically which ones apply to your immediate locality. Always and ever in your dealing with the roofers in your locale, try and observe a strict observance of the laws set by the state in the dealings with the roofers. These regulations are basically intended to be met by you as a way to ensure that you are well covered by the state if you happen to encounter some kind of problem with the whole project now or even in future. The contractor you are going to deal with should as well have a licensing status which is indeed updated and renewed as required for you to be safe dealing with them.
Question two; “Do you insure your roofers?”. Today, unlike in the past where the roofers with less than three employees were exempted from the demands to provide for the worker’s compensation and liability cover, all of them are nowadays required by law to provide for the compensation and liability covers for their workers. In spite of this need by law, there are some roofing contractors and part time roofers who are still not heeding this call for provision of these compensation. Certainly this happens to be due to the fact that to most of them, insurances are still an expensive option to provide for and as such a burden for them to add to the practice. When the contractor you are going to work with gets to work with no worker’s compensation and liability cover and something happens of the kind to cause loss or injury to the workers or employees on the project, you will stand to suffer serious losses as a homeowner as you will be required to provide for the compensation of the injured workers. Thus it becomes quite important for you to equally give due attention to the insurances availed with the roofers as you also did with their status for licensing. You surely cannot afford losing your home due to such a cause not your own making anyway.
