Whether you are repairing or replacing your roof, choosing a licensed roofing company is crucial to ensure the job is done right the first time. Roofs are expensive and roofing is an art that takes years to master. Often times, the search for the right roofer you can trust will necessitate careful consideration and time. Hire a licensed roofing contractor to protect your home from unethical practices and shoddy workmanship. Here are the top 5 reasons to use an insured and licensed roofing contractor such as Colin Roofing Inc.
1. Licensed Roofing Contractors are Specialized
Roofing Contractors must pass the comprehensive C-39 exam certifying they are specialists in repairing and waterproofing roofing structures. In the same way that doctors spend years in med school training to cure you one day, roofers spend years specializing their craft to attain certification in the roofing industry. Obtaining a roofing license from the California Contractors State License Board (CSLB) ensures customers that we know what we are doing.
Juan Colin, the president of Colin Roofing, has dedicated the past 30 years of his life to diagnosing and transforming roofs. He has been a licensed roofing contractor since 2008. Colin Roofing ensures that every job, no matter the size, is led by a foreman with decades of roofing acumen and expertise.
2. Licensed Roofing Contractors abide by a Contract
Having a written contract affords you several protections as a customer. Colin Roofing presents every client with a meticulous contract outlining the work and materials needed for their roofing project. We also calculate the project price and extra costs that you may incur (e.g. replacing rotted wood) so you are informed of everything before you make your decision. We hold ourselves to the highest level of accountability because we believe in our work and care about our customers. Honesty and transparency are fundamental values of Colin Roofing, imbued in our written agreement with customers. We will always stay true to our word.
3. Licensed Roofing Contractors Insure their Work to Protect You
The fundamental reason licensed roofing contractors are more expensive than handymen is because of insurance. Contractors subscribe to several insurances to protect both their employees and customers from any damage or potential injury.
Roofing is one of the most dangerous jobs in construction. Our workers, quite literally, put their lives on the line to install specialized roofs resistant to the hot weather conditions of California. To protect our workers, Colin Roofing is proud to have Worker's Compensation. This certification ensures insures our employees if they become sick or injured in a work-related incident, and can provide lost wages if they cannot continue working.
To protect homeowners, Colin Roofing is proud to have General Liability Insurance. General Liability insurance protects from 1 million to 3 million dollars in damage. For example, suppose a roofer leaves the roof exposed mid project and a rain storm causes substantial damage to your furniture, carpet, and drywall. A General Liability policy can cover the cost of this destruction. Otherwise, it would have to be paid by the contractor if it is caused by negligence or the homeowner. It is important to note that not every roofing has liability insurance! Unlike "Worker's Comp.", this insurance is not a requirement and the majority of roofing companies refuse to give their customers this protection. For this reason, Colin Roofing stands out among our competitors because we take all safeguards to ensure your roofing project will be done in a safe and timely manner.
4. Licensed Roofing Contractors Offer Warranty on Labor
A licensed roofing contractor backs all of their work and materials with warranty. Colin Roofing outlines all protections, service calls, and warranties on their contracts for each roofing project. This affords you as the customer the assurance that you won't have to pay twice for the same job.
We guarantee complete replacement of roofs with 3-year warranties on labor and use the finest roofing products in the industry to ensure maximum lifespan of roofs. Moreover, on repairs we offer diverse plans of labor warranty ranging from service calls to 2-year warranties on work completed by Colin Roofing.
