Your home is comprised of many interlinking systems that provide suitable environmental conditions to live. When it comes to protecting these systems, your family, and your valuables, your roofing system is a top priority. So, when it’s time for a roof inspection, a new roof, or a roof leak repair, use the following tips to help you pick the best roofing contractor.

Best Business Practices

It’s important to choose a roofing contractor that follows the rules. This means your contractor should be licensed, bonded, and insured. If an accident occurs to one of the employees during your roofing project, you may be responsible for any medical costs and loss of income costs if your contractor isn’t properly insured.

Your contractor should be legally licensed to pull the appropriate permits required for the project and ensure the work passes inspection with your homeowner’s insurance (in the event of a future claim). Your roofing contractor should be bonded to give you peace of mind that any disputes may be settled without litigation.

Qualifying Certifications

A well-rounded roofing contractor will hold contractor and installer certifications from reputable roofing material manufacturers, as well as maintain active memberships in locally and nationally recognized home building and roofing organizations. The following are some of the certifications, memberships and distinctions that we at VanWeelden Company have achieved:
