We're not talking about the storm, we're talking about the flood of contractors that flock to your neighborhood AFTER the storm! So the question is...who do you choose to work with?
There are so many options and different contractor signs that you see in the yards in your area. Surely you can't go wrong can you? The truth is...you can go wrong! Many home owners do and often times they never even know it!
In addition to ensuring your contractor is properly licensed, bonded, and insured, there are a number of other factors to consider when selecting the roofing contractor you're going to trust with your home.
However we've narrowed it down to the top 3!
1. Experience Dealing With Insurance.
Of course you want to work with an experienced contractor but is experience in their trade enough? Insurance companies are a necessary evil but when it comes to protecting their profits, that can sometimes mean cutting corners on paying homeowners the maximum on their claim!
One way that M-Core Construction has countered this tactic by the insurance is by becoming experts at their job as well. We've invested in the exact same software the insurance companies use to determine how much a homeowner should receive according to the damage on their home. That means our clients insurance claims are maximized, the damage on their home is properly repaired, and the entire process from beginning to end is handled by our team of trained professionals.
Furthermore, we're able to inspect your property prior to contacting your insurance agent to ensure there is enough sufficient damage to make a claim. Some home owners don't realize that many insurance companies consider a simple inspection a negative mark against your insurance history weather you go forward with a claim or not!
2. Local Guaranteed Work.
So many out-of-town contractors have what we call in our industry a "taillight warranty". Looking to make a quick buck, they will promise you the world, get the job completed as quickly as possible, and then they're off to chase the next storm. It can take months or years before you recognize signs of improper installation and by the time you realize something is wrong, they are gone.

2. Know Your Options In Product In Material
Your contractor should be looking out for your best interest from the beginning to the end of the project (that is if they're even remotely concerned about their own reputation). This also applies to helping you understand the different types of shingle options that are available to you. Different shingles can effect the value of your home which means if you ever plan on selling it, you're going to want to know what you're getting here.
Since the insurance company is paying for it, now may be a great opportunity for you to upgrade to something that will add value and accommodate your style and taste.
