A roof replacement is often a good decision for any homeowner. It shows how much the homeowner cares about their property, which translates to increased value when selling your home. It also makes the house more energy-efficient, as well as safer and more comfortable to live in.
But which roofing contractor in Lewes, DE, deserves to work with you? With so many names you can find online and in conventional directories, it can be quite tedious to narrow it down. Spicer Bros Construction, Inc. offers some handy advice: always go with a member of the NRCA, or National Roofing Contractors Association. Here are four reasons why this is a good idea:
1. Exclusive Membership
Businesses with no license to work in their area cannot gain NRCA membership. Neither can those that don’t have liability insurance and workers’ compensation insurance. In addition, a contractor with no permanent place of business cannot become a member. You’ll find plenty of those pseudo-contractors right after a storm hits our area, hoping to score a job with those affected by the calamity.
Financial stability, adherence to safety regulations, a respect for contracts, and cleanliness and organization at the job site; a roofing company in Denton, MD, should exhibit these qualities before they can be a member of the NRCA. These are simply the qualities you want your contractor to have.
NRCA members can readily provide written proposals that include start and completion dates. Other details about the job, including how you’re expected to pay the contractor, are also in the proposal. The prices should be reasonable, and the contractor must have several customer references so you can check with them before hiring the contractor.
4. Industry-Accepted Quality
An excellent record with clients and superb workmanship are NRCA requirements. The contractor you hire to do your roofing in Lewes, DE, should use only top quality products—never knockoffs—and inform you of energy-efficient options. The NRCA will never back a contractor that does not supply warranties and guarantees approved by the industry.
Spicer Bros Construction is an NRCA member contractor that specializes in top quality roofing. We are the contractor to call if you want to be sure your project is topnotch and properly covered by a manufacturer’s warranty.
