Selecting a contractor
When choosing a contractor, there are dozens of criteria to take into account. We have found that the following questions can be a great help when searching for a reliable roofing contractor.
Is your contractor local and registered with the secretary of state?
It’s really important to check if your contractor is a licensed and locally owned or operated business. Many companies come to capitalize on storm repairs, however some don’t take the proper steps to “sign the book” on their way in. The reason for this is they have no intention of sticking around if the work runs out or the warranty repairs become too much of a hassle to complete. Don’t do business with a company that has no investment in the community, your project, or most importantly – your satisfaction and protection.
Renova Roofing & Construction is licensed in Mississippi and our office is in Ridgeland.
Is your contractor highly rated and accredited by the bbb?
The Better Business Bureau is a non-profit organization that provides a forum for customers to formalize complaints against businesses and arbitration services to resolve disputes. No company is perfect, but all companies should make efforts to resolve disputes with their clientele. If your contractor has a low rating or multiple complaints that went unresolved, it’s a pretty sure sign they don’t take customer satisfaction seriously.
Renova is a BBB Accredited Business in Mississippi.
is your contractor insured?
Make sure your roofing company has a legitimate insurance policy before hiring them to do work on your home. If your contractor isn’t insured; injuries, accidents or property damages that occur during or after construction could result in serious liabilities for you as a homeowner. Call the number for the insurance agent on their insurance form to confirm their policy is current and covers them for the type of work they are about to complete on your property.
Renova is fully insured and you can request to see our insurance policy from your Renova representative.
what kind of warranty does your contractor offer?
When selecting a contractor to complete the work on your home, make sure they offer a warranty on both the workmanship and the materials with terms and conditions that satisfy your needs and give you the peace of mind you deserve. A roof replacement can cost as much as a new car – don’t let your contractor substitute a promise of quality for a tangible, written, long-term warranty that can be transferred to future owners. If you get a new roof on your home, you should be able to sell that value to future owners as an increase in the value of your property. A new roof with a poor warranty is of little value outside of its appearance (if it’s done well of course).
Renova offers a 5 year warranty on our workmanship and the best materials warranty in the industry, the Atlas Signature Select Roofing System warranty.
does your contractor have reviews on credible websites or from people in the community?
A dependable contractor is only dependable if he’s got the history to prove it. Great ways to find out about contractors are on websites such as HomeAdvisor, the Better Business Bureau, and Google. If your contractor doesn’t have a significant work history – you don’t want to find out whether you’re making the right choice the hard way.
