Tips for Hiring a Roofing Contractor
When you obtain more than one bid or proposal, be sure you are comparing apples to apples. Some estimates may be lower due to the use of a lower quality shingle and material. Some material may be reused instead of replaced.

Ask about insurance. Our company carries worker's compensation insurance. Be sure you are supplied the name of the agent you can verify the insurance with. Insurance information can be obtained from Crossroads Insurance Agency, 828-324-2891 for Hipps & Son Roofing Co., LLC.

Ask for references. We can provide references from building contractors that use our services and residential customers we have installed a new roof for. Ask friends and associates for names of roofing contractors they have had satisfactory dealings with.

Find out how long the company has been in business. Our company has been in business since 1989. The President of the company, Norman Hipps, has over 35 years experience in the roofing industry. If you have a problem after the job has been completed, can you find the person or company three to six months later? Better still; can you get them to resolve your problem? As stated, we have been in business since 1989. If there is a problem, we will be there to correct it.

Try to minimize the deposit you pay to the contractor prior to the start of the work or delivery of materials. When we begin the job, we stay on the job until it is completed. Depending on the length of time needed to complete the job, a weekly draw of funds may be necessary, but should not exceed what has already been completed of the job.

Find out if the company you wish to deal with handles obtaining all material and cleanup of debris, or if this is left up to the homeowner (or association). Too many times, a homeowner is faced with having to worry about ordering the supplies, dealing with the delivery and then arranging to have the debris from the torn off roof removed from their premises. Our company takes care of getting all material, and cleaning up and hauling away all roof debris as the job is in progress. Once completed, the grounds are swept with a powerful magnet to avoid leaving nails, and again cleaned of any remaining debris.

Please do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have of the contractor and get a satisfactory answer. We are happy to take whatever time necessary to satisfy any questions you may have regarding the estimate and/or your roof.
