7 Facts You Should Know Before
Choosing Your Roofing Contractor
How Do I Choose A Professional Roofing Contractor In Virginia Beach?
Here is a list of important criteria for anyone to consider when selecting the right contractor for roofing projects.
AED Roofing and Siding has a documented history of meeting and exceeding expectations in each category.
How Long Have They Been in Business?
Did you know that most roofing companies go under in 5 years or less? Mainly because they do not have proper financials in place.
What You Can Do: Make sure they are a licensed, insured, and bonded company. (Surety bonds provide financial security and construction assurance to project owners by verifying that contractors are capable of performing the work and will pay certain subcontractors, laborers and material suppliers. So that your project doesn't get left, half done.)
Do They Offer Extended Warranties?
Only contractors with the experience, square feet installed, and repair ratio can offer you an extra 5 to 10 years on your warranty.
What You Can Do:
The #1 reason for delays in projects is incorrect permitting. Choose a contractor that can show you how many permits they pull in your city.
What You Can Do: Ask your contractor how many permits they process on a monthly basis.
It’s 11PM in August and your roof starts leaking. Who do you call?
What You Can Do: Require access to your roofing contractor 24/7 in case of unexpected emergencies.
It's a job just going through the process of finding the right roofing contractor.
What You Can Do: Ask for references from past customers. One question you may ask them is how many repairs have been needed after installation, if any.
You want to feel good about purchasing your new roof.
What You Can Do: Ask your potential roofing contractors what they do for the community, in addition to their clients.
Best Value Proposition
If you've taken the time to get estimates, don't just go on price. Make sure you understand what you are getting with each estimate. Is the lower price bid using less expensive materials that won't last as long?
What You Can Do: If the price is competitive and assuming all the materials are the same, calculate the cost over the life of the roof.
