Are you an apartment owner in Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange County or the Inland Empire in need of a roofing contractor? Before making a decision, please see the following tips for hiring a professional roofing contractor and remember, a good contractor is someone who takes pride in his or her work and is more than happy to answer questions.
First, you want to make sure they have ample experience and are able to show you 3-4 roofs that they have done recently. Seeing their work and getting a few references will let you know what kind of reputation they have. Though most companies offer a 3-5 year warranty, it means nothing if the reputation of the contractor is not reliable. Next, make sure that it is an established company, they have a permanent address, telephone number, business license and proof of insurance (both general liability and worker’s comp). As you get a few bids on your building, keep in mind that the lowest bid does not always mean the best deal. Significantly lower prices could mean that a contractor is cutting corners with the quality of his workers or insurance liability. Lastly, after choosing a contractor to do your work, final payment should not be made until all work is complete according to terms of the written contract and your overall satisfaction.
