Trust Ohio's Certified Roofers
Why Should Your Roofer Be Certified and Licensed?
When you need a roof repair or replacement, the roofer you choose makes all the difference in the outcome of your project. Sometimes, especially after a storm, your neighborhood will seem to have an abundance of "local" roofers available to help with roof repairs and replacements. But you need to be careful with whom you pick to repair or replace your roof. Here is a quick story of someone who chose one of these roofers without vetting them first.
Alex's home had recently been damaged by a storm that came through the area. Being a new homeowner, he wasn't 100% sure how to go about getting his roof inspected and repaired. As he was beginning to research roofers near me, he had received a knock at his door. A gentleman saying he was with a local roofing company was coming through the neighborhood to see if his company could help with any storm-damaged roofs.
Alex was relieved. He gladly spoke with the gentleman, who inspected his roof and provided an estimate that seemed reasonable to Alex. He signed the contract and paid the roofer 75% upfront, with an agreement to pay the rest when the roof repairs were complete.
The repairs were done in a couple of days, and the roofing company was gone. Alex was relieved and slightly proud that he had handled his first major home project so adeptly and had peace of mind that he wouldn't have to worry about his roof anymore.
That is...until the next rain came.
Alex noticed wet spots on his ceiling. He was concerned because he had just had his roof repaired. "It shouldn't be leaking, should it?" he wondered aloud. He tried to call the roofer, but he never picked up his phone and wouldn't respond to emails. Alex's checks had been cashed, and the roofer was gone.
Alex reached out to a local certified and licensed roofing company for help. After their inspection, they determined that the roof repair job was subpar and that crew working on his home used low-quality roofing materials installed hastily. Alex had to pay more to get the initial roof repair job fixed and a couple of other problem areas that the first roofer missed.
In essence, Alex ended up paying twice for his roof repair by the end of it. This is why it is critical to make sure you use certified roofers.
Trust The Certified Roofers at TK Roofing And Gutters
When you have a licensed and certified roofing company, this means they've spent time learning and educating themselves on best practices in the roofing industry. There are various certifications out there, but you want to look for some of these specifically.
Another aspect to consider when hiring a roofer is if they also have liability insurance. If they don't, that can be an issue for the homeowner. If a worker is injured on the job, it can become a lengthy legal battle that ends up costing more than the cost of a roof replacement in the long run.
Look for local roof repair contractors that are licensed, bonded, and insured. This will help identify that you are dealing with a professional that will provide you with the highest quality roof repair services.
