Every home owner wants a safe and durable roof over their head. And we all know how expensive roofing jobs can get when done poorly. Besides, some roofers are not authorized to provide services to customers and they do not have certifications to show that they have been taught how to put up a roof. There also roofing contractors who are not members of a national professional association such as the National Federation of Roofing Contractors Limited or NFRC. It is always imperative to hire someone who is a member of an association such as the NFRC to prevent needless disappointments. Besides, working with a roofer who has membership gives you a number of benefits that include the following:
1. Super quality standards
Before joining a membership organization that is recognized nationwide, roofers endure a rigorous vetting process. Being picked at this initial stage does not guarantee future membership in future though Top organizations always vet their candidates again after a period of like three years. And to emerge victorious, a candidate should be stable financially and have a great commercial record.
Additionally, all the contracts they have handled previously are inspected to verify that the skill and technical competence levels shown were above reproach. There could be things that candidates must show compliance with including health and safety law, code of practice of the organization itself, any government-endorsed schemes and so on. Having acceptable insurance covers such as third-party, public and employers’ insurance is almost always mandatory to pass the vetting process.
2. Transparent pricing
Working with a member roofer is very beneficial in terms of pricing. They do not just tell you orally what they want to be paid. They provide a written quote showing the fairest price they can charge for the project you want to do. The quote will also show you whether VAT tax is included in the overall price. There is no danger of being overcharged as well.
3. 24-hour Technical support
The last thing you need when doing a roofing project is a company that does things without telling you. You also do not want to try to get in touch in vain. This won’t happen, luckily, when dealing with a roofing expert that is a member of a nationally recognized roofer’s association. Besides being answered by your contractor, they will give you free technical advice based on a detailed sequence of technical data produced by their association.
4. Inner peace
Any home owner will have peace of mind when they know that their roofing work will be done by a certified contractor. A good membership organization provides many types of warranties, particularly for large repairs, new roof construction projects and roof refurbishment. These warranties can last for a period of ten years and might take other beneficial forms.
Note that besides guaranteeing work for a lengthy period, certified roofing contractors also offer a warranty for construction materials and a professionally made contract.
