Insist on an NRCA roofing professional. Buying a new roof system is an important investment. Before you spend your money, spend some time learning how to evaluate the roofing contractor who may be working on your home or building. Not all roofing contractors are alike; insist on working only with a member of the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA). NRCA contractor members are recognized by having a specialized body of knowledge, recieved intensive training in a particular field and have hands-on experiance. They can show you how your roof system can help you save energy costs too. NRCA recomends you prequalify your contractor(s). It may require a little extra work, but experiance shows it goes a long way toward making sure you get the results you expect-a quality roof system at a fair price. And remember to keep a healthy skepticism about the lowest bid. If it sounds to good to be true it is! Many fly-by-night contractors seem attractive with their below-cost bids but often are uninsured, use low quality materials and perform substandard work. Price is only one of the crteria for selecting a roofing contractor. Professionalism and quality materials and workmanship also should weigh heavily in your decision.
