Is your Orlando roof showing signs if age? Maybe it’s not looking as nice as it use to or has a water leak that you’re still hoping goes away by itself. Though it is often overlooked, the roof is one of the most important elements of a building and one of the biggest investment!
Because of our high susceptibility to hurricanes and strong storms, Florida has one of the strictest building codes in the nation.
This means, the materials used in our area have to pass stringent tests before they can be installed in Central Florida.
Unfortunately, Florida also has quite the reputation for unscrupulous contractors and scam artist.
A little homework on your part can save you thousands of dollars and tons of frustration.
Protect yourself, as well as your investment, by ensuring you find a reputable roofing company.
Make sure the roofing company has a valid license.
To protect the consumer, the state of Florida requires roofing contractors to have a license. The license ensures the contractors maintain liability insurance and take exams.
Check reviews and look on their website for pictures of work they have done
By checking real reviews on-line, as well as with the BBB, you can learn a lot about a business. The quality of their work and if they stay on budget and schedule. Ask if they have any affiliation with the industry or trade associations. Seeing real roofing work the company has done can go a long way in making a decision.
Ask how long has the roofing business has been in Central Florida. An established contractor should have several years locally. Speak with the owner, ask about the business history and if they’ve ever changed their name for any reason.
Not all roofing contractors are they same! It is worth doing a little homework, to ensure you hire a reputable roofer.
