Because your roof is such an important layer of protection for your home, it makes perfect sense that you want to go to great lengths to keep your roof looking and performing at its absolute best. Our Rochester roofers are committed to bringing out the best in your roof and educating you on how we do that. For that reason, here are a few questions to ask roofers before hiring them.
DO YOU HAVE GENERAL LIABILITY AND WORKERS COMP INSURANCE?
Home roofing can be rather dangerous, no matter how routine the job might be. If a worker is injured on your property, workers comp insurance takes care of her or him. Should you work with a roofer who doesn’t have workers comp, you risk being held liable for any injuries suffered while at your home. Much like workers comp protects employees, general liability coverage protects your home. Any mishaps that happen to your property that result in damage are handled by the roofer’s insurance company rather than yours, but only if the roofer has general liability coverage. There’s no need for you to be made to pay for someone else’s mistakes.
