As a rule of thumb, you should always vet a prospective roofer before hiring them. However, vetting a contractor doesn’t need to be tedious and time-consuming. There are vetting tricks you can use to speed up the process. One of them is to check the certifications of a prospective roofing contractor. Manufacturers and independent non-profits do extensive background checks on contractors before certifying them, so in a sense, they’ve already done all the vetting work for you.
Owens Corning®, a trusted name in the roofing industry, has a network of preferred contractors. Why should you hire an Owens Corning preferred contractor?
Owens Corning’s requirements are so stringent that only 1% of the contractors in the entire country qualify for the certification. In order to join the network, a contractor must have the following requirements:
Satisfactory scores in the installation workmanship inspection
At least $1,000,000 in general liability insurance
A track record of excellent customer service and financial stability
At least three years operating under the same business name
Good standing with the Better Business Bureau®, an independent non-profit organization that aims to improve trust in the marketplace
These stringent requirements mean you can always expect quality workmanship and customer service from an Owens Corning preferred contractor.
