In the aftermath of the recent storms, there is a great deal of concern about homeowners hiring a reputable contractor to do repairs or home construction
Cheyenne, Wyo., (July 27, 2011) - Making plans to replace a damaged roof? Make sure the roofing contractor you select is reputable.
Don't become a victim of disaster fraud. After a natural disaster, professionals often go from door-to-door in effected neighborhoods, offering clean up or repair services. Many of these business people are reputable.Others are not. The dishonest ones may pocket payment without completing the job or use inferior materials and perform shoddy work not up to code.
Word of mouth remains the best way to choose a contractor. Also checking with local Home Builders Association, Better Business Bureau or Chamber of Commerce to make certain a contractor is licensed and has adequate insurance coverage.
Impact-resistant roofing is available in many forms such as asphalt shingles, concrete tile and metal. While impact-resistant roofing looks the same as roofing material used today, it tends to stand up much better to hail.
Contact your State Farm agent to learn more about the discounts available to you based upon the impact-resistant roofing product you choose.
