Beware of Unlicensed Roofing
Roofing insurance is extremely
high due to the danger involved. You will find many companies that
state licensed and insured. But remember, if it doesn't say
"roofing" on the certificate, it's not Roofers Insurance.
guarantee is only as good as the contractor who writes it!
Not all roofing contractors are professional, and too many home and
building owners have paid dearly for using amateurs.
This type of operator is unlicensed, uninsured, and probably lacking in
experience. He may use high pressure or scare tactics, and "bonus offers" to get
your business. He may encourage you to pay in cash or to issue joint checks in
order to avoid his tax obligations. Beware of any and all such schemes.
If you do use an unlicensed, uninsured
firm or individual, don't be mislead into believing that your homeowner's or
personal liability policy necessarily protects you. In many cases, you may be
liable for suit.
A large number of home and building owners have been dragged into litigation
involving uninsured contractors. If an employee of an unlicensed contractor is
injured on your home or building, you may be responsible for his injuries or
disabilities. In addition, you probably have no protection in the event damage
is done to your property or the property of others by the roofer during the
course of the work.
Often the end result of using an unlicensed roofer is a bad roofing job or the
wrong approach to the problem. This is worse than no job at all, and may end up
costing you more in the long run.
Another reason to avoid this type of
operator is if he does not pay the suppliers whose materials are used on your
project, you may find a lien placed on your property even though you have paid
for the work. This means you may end up paying for the same materials twice.
All in all, most home and building owners have found that using unlicensed,
uninsured roofers is not worth the risk.
