Just came across this good tip on Traveler’s Insurance website. They’re experts so they should know.
It stated… Always consider hiring local, licensed roofing contractors whenever possible. It is easier to deal with a local roofing contractor if problems develop. However, since it may not always be possible to work with a local roofing contractor, make sure to thoroughly check references. Be especially suspicious of door-to-door salespeople who make unrealistically low estimates, refuse to leave a contract overnight, or try to sell their services by playing on your emotions.
We’re a local roofing company in the Raleigh, Cary, Durham area – and that makes a big difference. Glad to hear it from the experts!
