So your roof has begun to leak. There are many questions that you begin to ask yourself. What is causing it to leak? Was it Mother Nature that caused it? Was the last roof contractor certified or was he someone’s uncle that claimed he could do it for a “good price”? Even if you never know what truly caused your roof to leak, the fact still remains that you are going to have to call a roofing contractor.
Once you begin your search for a roofing contractor, you discover that Craigslist and Facebook are filled with roofing professionals. You add in search engine results in addition to newspaper ads and you have an unlimited number of contractors from which to choose. How do you know who is certified? How do you avoid YouTube vloggers claiming to be certified roofing professionals? Here are a few tips to help you during your search.
The more experience that a contractor has, the more that his work results will reflect his experience. Experience is priceless. It cannot be bought and it must be earned. Therefore, hiring someone inexperienced can be costly, if the job is not done correctly.
2. Certifications and memberships
