What a great chicagoland roofing company that will do a good job for cheap. Well, I have the answer here. In the world of remodeling, home improvements or hiring residential building, "great" and "cheap" do not usually go together. A legitimate business needs to make a profit to stay in business. In order to stay in business in the long term, the company must pay taxes, carry liability insurance and workers' compensation, and pay other normal operating expenses. This usually means that their prices are a little higher than the guy who works out of the back of his truck for cash. Unfortunately, many owners make their purchase decisions based on the cheapest price. Often burned when an uninsured worker is injured at work and the only way to recover damages is to sue the homeowner. They also feel frustrated when they can not find the right one or two years later for a warranty claim. In some cased, they are forced to pay for materials twice when a provider files a lein against the property of the homeowner because the "contractor" could not pay for the material. Contractor complaints like these will be among the top three types of complaints received by the Office of the Attorney General (usually Division of Consumer Affairs). The only way to ensure that these problems do not befall you is to deal with reputable contractors. My advice is to decide what brand and color tiles you want in your home before you contact roffing contractors for a price. This ensures that everyone is bidding on the basis of the same criteria. At a minimum, I recommend screening contractors using the following criteria: 1) Make sure that the contractor has been in business for at least ten years. This shows in a very real way the contractor is on the up and up. 2) Ask for, and check out the references in your area. Previous clients will usually be very happy to tell you their experience with a contractor. 3) Insist that a contractor provides you with a certificate of insurance showing that they are covered by general liability insurance and workers' compensation. The certificate must be mailed to you by the insurance company of the contractor, as it is too easy for a smart contractor for a copy Phoney. 4) Ensure that any warranty labor is in writing. They usually provide a separate warranty on materials. 5) Make sure that all details of the work are expressed in writing in the contract. 6) Do not give a contractor more than a down payment of 10% upon signing the contract. Contractors who ask for more money "so they can buy materials" should send an alarm that can not be ignored. You can bet that a contractor who requires a large down payment has no working capital and will soon be out of business. Do not pay the contractor the balance due until all work is completed to your satisfaction. Once you are paid in full, you lose all influence in getting back to finish the job. Note that this is a highly competitive business and a contractor who charges high prices will not be in business for long. Prices for legitimate contractors tend to be very close if they are all bidding on the exact same job. I hope this information will help you make your decision. Good luck with your roofing project.
