You can spend $20,000 or more on roof replacement. If you take on this major investment, the last thing you need is a contractor who’ll rip you off!
Nearly a dozen states don’t require roofers to have a license. In this case, local reputation, online reviews and a confirmation of license and bonding is required. Paying by credit card is a great way to protect yourself in case the job goes wrong.
If you have major roof damage, it’s easy to get impatient and go with the first company that will come to do the work. Even in a disaster situation, follow best hiring practices, which includes doing your homework on the company that’ll work on your home.
