Beware of Unlicensed Roofing Contractors

Every year “storm chasers” and other unlicensed roofing contractors descend on Colorado to make quick money on homeowners who have experienced hail, storm or wind damage. Sometimes these unscrupulous contractors take advantage of homeowners, adding to the damage you have already suffered to your roof.

Below are some guidelines and checklist to follow when selecting a roofing contractor in Colorado repairs, roof replacement, or new roof installations.



Important things to look for in a local roofing contractor in the Denver metro area:

Make sure the contractor that you choose is a Better Business Bureau (BBB) Accredited Business.

Make sure the contractor that you choose is listed in the phone book, and online directories such as Google Business.

License plates on vehicles are local.

Get a list of references from a few years back to insure that the company is not a fly-by-night company. Make sure you verify those references.

Check to make sure the contractor you do choose didn’t get a license after the storm.

How to Choose a Denver Roofing Contractor:

A roofing system is a complex combination of elements, the success of which depends on the quality of materials and workmanship. In your search for a contractor there are several important information sources to consider – city licensing authorities, and insurance companies are excellent sources of information. A professional contractor will be happy to provide any information you may request.

A contractor is looking for good jobs that will make a fair profit and provide future referrals, while taking pride in their work and being enthusiastic about the possibility of helping you with your roofing problems.

A good professional contractor will provide the company’s permanent business address and telephone number along with specific business information to help you make the right decision. The training and experience of a contractor, as well as the age of his or her company, wil help you determine their ability to successfully complete your roofing project.

Before allowing anyone to climb on your roof you should have them present you with a copy of their Worker’s Compensation and Liability Insurance certifications. This protects you from any lawsuits resulting from injuries on your property before or after work begins.

A Workmanship Guarantee along with a city or company inspection insures a properly installed roof from the contractor’s own quality control.
