Hiring a contractor for any work around your house requires a level of trust. This is, after all, your home that is being worked on. It is only natural to want someone with the best reputation and experience to handle the job. But, where do you turn to find that level of contractor? How do you know that the person on your property is reputable and will do the job to your satisfaction?
Start with a roofing license
The first place to start is with the license. You want to make sure that the roofing contractor you hire is licensed, bonded, and insured. Far too often, we hear about people that hire a roofer that just appears after a storm, pay them a large deposit, and that roofer just disappears. When you hire a licensed roofer, you know you can follow up with their company should anything go wrong.
Does the company have any certifications?
But, beyond a license, what should you look for in a roofer? This is where the importance of the right credentials for a Baton Rouge roofer comes to the fore front. For us at Cribbs, we are CertainTeed Select Shinglemaster certified for residential roofing. CertainTeed has been around for over 110 years, and over that time has developed their Shinglemaster certification to recognize roofers who have, not only qualify as a specialist by passing a course on shingle technology and installation, but also roofers who sign off on an ethics agreement to make sure their knowledge is matched by their performance.
We at Cribbs are CertainTeed Select Shinglemaster certified. This is the top-level CertainTeed roofing credential, and represents the highest standards of excellence, quality and knowledge in the shingle roofing industry. A Select Shinglemaster has shown extensive knowledge of shingle installation and quality through rigorous testing, and have provided CertainTeed with proof of workers' compensation and liability insurance.
At Cribbs, your long-term satisfaction with our work is the top priority. That is why we put an emphasis on holding this level of certification. By holding ourselves to CertainTeed’s rigorous standards, we can be sure that our work will meet or exceed any expectations and stand the test of time.
