Be Protected against Shady Roofing Contractors & Siding Contractors!
Selecting the right roofing contractor is critical. Anyone can give you a price and a start date. Don’t let your home improvement project become a major headache…Make sure you choose the right home improvement contractor, whether you’re considering roof repair contractors, roof repair, roof replacement, new roof, gutter installation contractors, cedar or vinyl siding contractors, or replacement home window contractors.
There are “6” Critical Questions you should ask before choosing your next home improvement contractor!
1. How long has the contractor been in business?
Having a permanent location shows they are a stable and well-establish company. Burr has been doing business in Connectictut since 1969 and at their current location for 18 years.
2. Do they have BOTH liability and workers compensation insurance?
If the roofer does not have insurance YOU could be liable if someone gets injured on the job. Burr complies with all worker comp laws and carries $2 million of liability.
3. Are they registered with the state?
It is illegal to do business in Connecticut without being registered. Burr is a registered contractor with the state. Connecticut Reg. # 519740
4. Are they members of a trade association and in good standing?
Burr is an active member of the following 3 associations: Certified Contractors Network (CCN), National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) and North East Roofing Contractors Association (NERCA).
5. Do they provide FREE 3rd Party Complaint Resolution?
Burr provides 2 options for our clients, The Customer Care Program from the BBB and complaint resolution process from CCN, so your satisfaction is GUARANTEED.
6. Do they provide a detailed proposal?
Find out the steps you need to take and phone numbers you need to have, in case you have a dispute with your roofer.
Know what to look for in a proposal to make sure that you are getting the absolute best product for your needs, at the best possible price. Don’t even think about sitting down with a roofing contractor to talk about your project without reading this information first. You’ll be glad you did!
A recent study showed that home improvement companies continue to be one of the most complained about industries. And, according to the Federal Trade Commission, they warn that “not all contractors operate within the law.”
Protecting yourself from costly mistakes is really very easy – if you know what to look for.
REMEMBER: The critical factor in a successful contracting project is selecting the right roofing contractor.
Most of the time, consumers buy without having the proper information. So as a result, more often than not, customers pay too much for inferior products and shoddy installation. The problem is that by the time the customer figures this out, it’s too late to do anything about it. They are stuck. This is one of the main reasons why the home improvement industry continues to be in the top 10 of the most complained about industries. Shady contractors know that once they get a signature on a contract, a deposit check, and pass the 3-day right of recession, it’s nearly impossible for the customer to get out of the agreement.
At Burr Roofing, Siding, and Windows, we always educate our customer and provide them with the necessary information to ensure that they know exactly what they’re getting.
This means our customers understand what they are paying for, and know that they are paying for the best possible installation and the right product for their needs.
