Hire the Right Contractor for Your Project
It is important to protect you, your family, and your home and unfortunately this means watching out for scam roofers. In Texas, since there is no need for a license to perform roof projects there is often an influx of people who take advantage of homeowners need for repairs and replacements after a large storm. To avoid these scams there are a few questions you can ask before working with a contractor.
Do You Have Proper Insurance?
Insurance should always be present regardless of what home improvement project is in progress. Coverage descriptions often differ, but it should always include liability insurance. Liability insurance covers accidental property damage that protects you from being held liable. We are happy to provide our proof of insurance at any time.
Do You Have References?
Sampling a contractor’s past work, is the best way to ensure that the contractor performs quality work. Reputable contractors should have no problem providing a few references from recent customers. We recommend that if you have any concerns you ask us for a reference list and then personally look at their roofs.
Do You Have a Physical Location?
Online interactions have become so common that it’s easy to forget the importance of a physical location. Contractors with a physical location provide the security that in the case of a warranty claim, the contractor is less likely to run out on you.
Do You Offer Workmanship Warranties?
The ideal roofing warranty should cover workmanship and materials. Workmanship warranties are especially important because many companies do not offer this. We not only offer manufacturer’s warranty on material, we also include a workmanship warranty through Mill Creek Roofing with every roof replacement.
