Gaining Useful Information From a Contractor’s References

By Stacy Mellete

Whether for routine roofing repairs or storm damage restoration in Largo FL, you should take the time to find contractors like Affordable Roofing Systems who are properly certified and have good reputations they can be proud of too.

One way you can do so is by checking any references a contractor provides and verifying whether their claims are accurate or not.


Review Comments and Testimonials

Go through published reviews of previous customers and see how positive, or otherwise, they are. If you know any of the commenters – they can be neighbors or friends of yours – get in touch with them and ask if their published testimonial is an accurate representation of their experience. 

Verify Awards and Certifications

If a contractor tells you they’re certified by various manufacturers, don’t hesitate to verify the accuracy of those as well. You can check a manufacturer’s list of recommended contractors. Lists of service provider awardees like those of Angie’s List Super Service Awards (SSA) are accessible online. Recognized experts in roof repairs and installation in Largo Florida like Affordable Roofing Systems are given permission to post an SSA badge on their website upon being selected for the honor.

Look Up License Validity

It is very important to work with a fully licensed and insured contractor as a means of protecting yourself from defective products and shoddy workmanship. You can always verify the validity of a contractor’s state license as well as their membership with known contractors’ associations.
