Most Bowie, MD area homeowners are well aware of the importance of proper roofing. A well-installed new roof can add tremendous value to your home; it can reduce maintenance and prevent potentially major problems; and it can possibly last for decades. A poorly installed roof, meanwhile, will only lead to headaches, and to the need for further upkeep down the road.
The difference lies in the quality of roofing contractor you choose—and rest assured that not all Bowie roofing companies are created equal! The question is, how can homeowners ensure that they select a truly reputable Bowie-area roofing company—someone willing and able to provide a truly professional new roof for a reasonable fee and with minimal risk? Here are a few things to look for as you seek out a roofing company:
This is an absolute must. You want to make sure your roofer has worker’s compensation and liability insurance; without these things, you’re opening yourself up to a world of risk. More to the point, perhaps, the lack of these things proves that the roofer in question simply isn’t professional. Ask to see copies of your roofer’s insurance cards before any work is done.
Again, this is simply a sign of professionalism. Any “real” roofing company will have a business license—period.
A really reputable and experienced roofing company will be able to prove its knowledge with various certifications from leading roofing product manufacturers.
This just shows that someone is keeping tabs on the company in question, and ensuring that they’re not scamming people or eliciting too many complaints.
A really great roofing company is going to be proud of its work, and won’t keep that pride to itself. A company that is unwilling to provide you with references is likely not a company you can trust.
Pretty much all roofing companies are going to tell you they have incomparable warranties, but you should always ask to actually see the documentation! This is not a decision to make lightly, as there is much at stake. We do invite you to check out the references and testimonials that we have available here at Integrity Home Pro—and also to contact us today to learn more about our warranties and other credentials!
