Therefore, always look for a company that maintains paperwork showing its insurance policy and worker’s compensation before actual hiring.  If they’re unable produce insurance proof and ask you to sign the roofing contract first, just move to another company.

Permanent business place

A permanent business place shows that the roofing company won’t fly by over night with your partial payment. Although, this doesn’t imply that a permanent roof contractor can be trusted blindly. Nevertheless look for owner’s permanent address, phone number and tax identification number to be safe and careful.

Guaranties

Guaranties reflect that a roofing company has the ability to provide first grade services. Materials and products used come with a guarantee from the manufactures and promise the quality a roof installer mist have. It’s advised that a roofer should offer at least one year warranty on roof installation.
