cbbb-accred-a-pluscbbb-badge-horzRoof replacement isn’t something to take lightly, it’s costly and it protects everything in your home that you hold near and dear to you. When choosing a contractor there are several things  you need to think about and in this day and age the internet makes that extremely easy to do!! After all in most cases you will be either using hard earned money you’ve been saving up or you’ll secure some type of financing and we believe it’s important for the consumer to get what they are paying for. First the basics like are they licensed, insured, bonded, do they carry workers compensation on their employees? These things matter because it helps to convey the integrity of the contractor, proof of these things are easy for your contractor to provide you as well! Next make sure that your contractor participates in the local building associations like the Anchorage Home Builders Association or the Mat-Su Homebuilders association, these associations play an integral part of keeping contractors up to date on ever changing building codes and regulations, they also have a pretty good idea of reputable contractors and are often very willing to help you find the right fit. Check sites like the BBB and Angie’s List for consumer complaints and reviews. It may not seem important in the beginning but when your roof leaks or blows off you’ll wish you had done a little legwork on the front end.
