If you need work done on your roof, whether it’s a minor repair or a complete replacement, you’ll want to make sure that you find a roofing contractor in Sacramento you can trust.
You won’t want to risk overpaying for a poorly done job on your roof, after all. In order to identify a reputable roofing contractor, one of the first steps you should take is to make the roofing contractor is fully licensed.
The Importance of a Roofing Contractor License
It can’t be overstated how important it is to make sure the roofing contractor you’re working for is fully licensed. Roofing contractors in Sacramento must be licensed by the California Contractors State License Board (CSLB). In order to receive their license, they have to pass a number of tests. This ensures that when you work with a licensed contractor, you can trust that they are familiar with the best and latest roof installation, repair and maintenance practices.
When you hire a roofing contractor that’s not licensed, you’re risking working with someone who may not be insured (which means that you could end up being financially liable for any injuries or damage that occurs during roof work), who could overcharge you, who could cut corners to make more money resulting in a shoddy job, who may not have the expertise or experience to do a good job, and who may not be familiar with the local building codes and regulations.
Checking a Roofing Contractor’s License
Having a license basically proves that a contractor is insured and that they have the expertise necessary to do a good job. Because of this, reputable roofing contractors will be sure to advertise the fact that they are licensed. However, don’t just take them at their word. Anyone can say that they are licensed, after all.
A reputable roofing contractor should provide their license number to you. You can then check their contractor license at the website of the Contractors State License Board to make sure that it’s legitimate and up to date. Here at Straight Line Construction, we make it easy for you to do this by providing our contractor license number at the bottom of every page on our website.
