Do's and don'ts of selecting a roofing company

Though it can take seconds for a storm to ravage your roof, it is critical that you take the time to hire the right roofer to repair the damage.  Shady storm chasers, including fly-by-night companies and others from out of state, frequently prey on storm victims.  Here are a few dos and don’ts:

-- DO use a local contractor. If you choose a contractor other than a local one, you run the risk of something going wrong post-installation when the contractor is no longer around to fix it.   Aegis is a locally owned and operated company who follows through on the job.

-- DO be wary of significantly lower bids. They could come from thieves who stole materials from others’ driveways and roofs. Simply asking contractors where they got their supplies could stop you from hiring thieves.  Ask your contractor where they purchase materials for your job. Many people don't realize material suppliers have the right to file liens on your property.  If your contractor leaves the area without paying the material bill you may be left to clean up the mess.  Check with your contractors' supplier to ensure their account is in good standing. 

-- DON’T sign anything you don’t understand. A contractor may say, “Sign this so we can take a look at your roof,” and the document could state they are the only contractor able to do work on your roof. Aegis gives no obligation evaluations and estimates.

-- DON’T pay upfront for work. Respectable companies are able to cover costs until the job is completed. Aegis’ corporate account at Crossroads Roofing Supply has always been in top standing.

-- DO check references. Aegis’ customers are satisfied customers.

-- DO check registration and insurance. As of 2011, roofing contractors are required to register with the state of Oklahoma Construction Industries Board. Never take a contractor's word regarding registration. Always verify that they are registered at www.ok.gov/cib .  Requirements for registration are that roofers carry workers compensation insurance and general liability insurance. Aegis is fully insured and carries liability  and workers compensation coverage for your protection.  We are always glad to provide current insurance certificates for our customers.  Any hesitation to provide this documentation can be a red flag when choosing a roofer.

-- DO get your negotiated price and scope of services in writing.  You should not only know the price, but understand the scope of work that is to be performed.  We pride ourselves on effectively communicating with our customer BEFORE the project begins regarding the scope of work.
