Be clear about the facts and consider all options before making a decision. This is a major decision for first-time homeowners, and All Star Roofing will help you make it easier.
How can you find the information you are looking for in just three questions?
Get started here
Question 1 – “Can you show me proof of your Florida roofing insurance and license?”
A certified contractor can work anywhere in Florida. A registered contractor can only work in a particular community and is licensed at the state level. Sometimes, licensure is extended to the entire county of Florida.
The requirements to become a certified contractor are more stringent. Those who have been certified have more experience. A legitimate Florida roofer won’t hesitate to ask questions about licensure.
Question 2 – “What’s the roof replacement process?”
Although it might seem vague, this question is actually quite informative.
This question should be answered by a Florida roofing contractor. We at All Star Roofing have developed a five-step roofing plan that is based on the best practices for our customers. It is a common knowledge among the entire team, which helps us deliver outstanding results every time.
The roof repair process should be explained by your contractor. You should learn what you can expect from them during this explanation. This should include steps to follow if additional costs are incurred after the project is started by the roofer.
It is important to get a written estimate at this point in the conversation. The basis for the final contract should be your initial free estimate. The contract should outline the costs, timeline and steps of the project.
Question 3 – “Can you talk to one of your satisfied customers?”
This is a great way to get rid of unqualified contractors.
Building trust and repeat business is part of building relationships within the community. Even though they may not collect testimonials every day, a roofer should still be able to think of people who would be interested in talking to them – especially if they have had roof replacements similar to yours.
Sometimes testimonials are posted on contractor websites. This can be a good sign, especially when they are video testimonials that feature real people. It’s difficult to confirm that these testimonials are genuine. Talking to customers can give you an inside look at the experience of working with your potential roofer.
