Choosing a roofing contractor can be very time consuming and confusing. Therefore, some of the things consumers need to be aware of are certifications, licenses, and the reputation of the company. Many states require roofing contractors to be licensed; some states have specific licensing requirements. Some contractors are able to obtain bonding from surety companies, while others are not. Your state’s Department of Professional Regulation or Licensing Board will have this information. Check to see whether a prospective roofing contractor is properly licensed and/or bonded.
The Financial Stability of the company you are considering to perform work on your home is extremely important. Maintaining good lines of credit, and proper payment history, are a sign of a strong and stable company in any successful business. Property liens can be filed by product suppliers and sub-contractors that were not paid in full for their services rendered. Dimensional Contracting Services will offer appropriate credit references to prove their financial history and stability. A professional contractor will be able to supply you with current financial information. This should include references from a financial institution or auditing firm.
