Choosing the right Clearwater roofing contractor or Tampa roofers for your project can be a difficult decision. But there are certain standards by which you can judge the stability and quality of a roofing company in order to protect your own interests.
First, make sure any roofing contractor you consider has a current state license and is licensed to perform work in your community. Hiring an unlicensed contractor for roofing Tampa or roofing Clearwater homes is asking for trouble. If a problem should occur you may have no recourse in seeking damages from an unlicensed roofer.
Equally as important is making sure the roofing contractor you choose has adequate insurance coverage, and that the insurance is current. Legitimate roofing contractors Tampa area homeowners can trust will have both workers’ compensation insurance and liability insurance of at least $1 million. You should insist on obtaining a certificate of insurance for your roofing project directly from the roofer’s insurance company. Do not rely on a photocopy of an old document that may no longer be valid.
If you hire a roofing contractor who is uninsured on under-insured and an accident occurs on your property, YOU may be held liable for damages.
For your protection and peace of mind, Affordable Roofing carries full insurance coverage, including workers’ compensation and a $1 million liability policy for every job.
