Considering the investment dollars that are required today for weatherproofing a building, we think the selection of a proper weatherproofing specialist to be of utmost importance. We have prepared some guidelines to help you in your planning and selection process.
Selecting A Contractor
Make sure you select a contractor who has the insurance coverage and endorsements you need, such as an “additional insured clause”. If your project is residential, always check if the contractor has residential insurance.
Select a contractor who has had years of experience (not just the biggest Yellow Pages ad). Selecting a contractor new to the market might work out just fine, but do some research and make sure they have the experience to perform the type of roofing you select.
Check to see if the contractor has coverage under Labor & Industries. If any employees are injured and are not covered, the building owner is responsible for covering the the injury. You can either call the Dept. of Labor & Industries 425-990-1402 or access their contractor license information online Dept of Labor & Industries
Check to see if the contractor is affiliated with the local, regional and national roofing associations. This not a necessity; but roofing associations are created to better the roofing industry. Being involved in an association shows a company is interested in maintaining a good standing among their peers.
Ask for references
Remember, workmanship and service should be the first criteria when deciding on a contractor. A new roofing system is a major cash outlay and you want to get the best value for your dollar. Prices should only be one consideration in selecting a roofing contractor.
Roof Maintenance and Repairs
Following are maintenance recommendations that should be done at least twice a year:
- Clearing the roof of debris.
- Clearing drains so water can be removed from the roof efficiently.
- Tightening any loose drain bolts.
- Inspecting the roof surface for signs of deterioration and repairing any areas in need of repair.
