4 Things to Look for in a Storm Damage Roof Repair Contractor

Storm damage can be devastating to your business and your Bentonville, AR roofing, but even worse is the potential for unscrupulous contractors who swoop into town following a storm and try to generate business. These roofers are often moving from town to town and may leave you with low quality work and nobody to contact to get it fixed. Instead, use these four criteria to find a quality Bentonville roofer after a storm.

1: A Local Company

When you work with someone who is part of our community here in Bentonville, you know you’re getting work done by someone who is committed to the businesses here. Since they are local, they can respond quickly to your needs and help you get a new roof back on your home, or get storm repairs done, sooner than later. Plus they’ll be around in case you have questions, need future inspections or repairs, or need to redeem a warranty.

2: Properly Licensed

Before you sign any contract or commit to any work, make sure your roofer is licensed with the state of Arkansas—a requirement for any job that costs more than $2,000. If it’s a smaller job and they don’t need a license, use criteria #3 to properly vet them as a potential roofer in Bentonville.

3: Well Recommended

Ask your friends, family, and colleagues about who they would recommend, or check out reviews from past customers to determine whether or not a roofer provides high quality work and a fair price. You can check online reviews, but be wary of any reviews that seem overly positive (they could be fake reviews by the contractor) or overly negative (they could be fake reviews by a competitor). If you can’t find online reviews and you don’t know anyone who has worked with a contractor, ask for a list of references to call.

4: Insured

Insurance coverage—both general liability and worker’s compensation—protect you as the business owner so you’re not liable for any accidents or problems that occur during roofing construction. These accidents or delays could end up costing you a lot of money if your building is unusable during construction. Make sure your contractor has both.

When it comes to commercial roofing storm repairs, hiring the best quality contractor ensures that you get great work and have a roof that will protect your building for years to come.
