How to make sure you avoid using the wrong roofing contractor

The first thing you want to find out is if they have the proper credentials and that everything is in good standing.  Are they properly licensed  and do they have a certificate of insurance proving they have enough coverage in the event you had to file a claim against them.   This is of utmost importance as a means of protecting you against any financial obligations in the future.

Something else to consider is what their safety record is. You want to find out the roofing contractors EMR (Experience Modification Rates).   A reading under one is proof that the roofing contractor puts a safe working environment first.

They need to survey the roof and use the appropriate equipment you scan for moisture and any other problems in order to give you an accurate and reliable quote that will not change as the project develops.
