Quiz Phoenix Roofing Company


1    Be patient and calm. Most Phoenix Arizona homeowners after a hailstorm are desperate to find a local roofer. Being desperate leaves you open to being preyed upon by drifter roofing contractors “Storm Chaser” who claim to be local roofer, like Triangle Roofing Scottsdale AZ.

2    Look out the storm chaser will not have Arizona tags on their trucks. The vehicle is likely to be registered anywhere but local if the roofer is not local. This indicates that the roofer is only in town for as a storm chaser and won't be hanging around for upkeep or remedying any damage that is poorly fixed.

3    Be wary of claims of the roofer is going to staying in the Phoenix roofing market. Quiz a non-Phoenix roofing company very carefully. Extract a promise of return for further mending even if the company leaves Arizona; get this in writing. Long-term warranties, however, won't be much good if your roofer has left the Phoenix area or even worse Arizona.

4    Check to make sure that any non-engaged roofer has been properly licensed as a local roofer for Phoenix roofing contracting. Ask for current certificates of workman's compensation and liability insurance, good for roof contracting in Arizona. This is for your protection. They must have both, as one covers property damage and one covers their workers from injuries if they fall from your roof. A Storm chaser usually use sub contractors to install the roofs, and a lot have crews that travel with them. In most states, the homeowner or their insurance company will be liable if something happens; you don't want to risk your home.

5    Be aware that roofing company insurance is expensive. This can lead some roofing contractors to cut corners to avoid the expense. Insist on seeing proof of current dated insurance.

6    Avoid signing any contingency agreements. These will be very vague, lacking in description of the work to be done and will lack information about insurance proceeds.

7    Do your own research. Check your local roofer in the Yellow Pages; go back two or three years to find stability of business continuity. Check the BBB when they joined, as they often join when they come into town, then they will be new members.

8    Make sure that all materials used are paid for. There have been instances where stormers come in, roof a bunch of houses, and leave without paying the local suppliers and manufactures, thereby leaving the homeowner to pay twice! Ask to see invoices for payments.

9    Prefer the local Phoenix roofing specialists. In a storm situation, it is always best to buy from an established local Phoenix roofing contractor, as they will be around to service their work afterwards. If your city and state licensing requirements, you will be able to check these online.

10    Check for his homeowner ship, if the storm chaser is serious about staying in town he will purchase a home.
