Why do you need a licensed roofing company contractor?
So, you’ve decided to get a new roof… what do you do next? One of the many things a homeowner forgets to consider (before it’s too late!) is whether or not the roofing company contractor they chose follows all applicable licensing and safety laws.
First, chose a licensed roofing company contractor. This not only ensures that you get what you are paying for- someone who knows what they are doing- but it guarantees that you, the homeowner, are protected. The licensing process requires contractors to submit proof of insurance. Contractors who aren’t licensed may be a little cheaper but, if an accident ever happens, your homeowners insurance may be required to pay for it, thereby increasing your premiums. The risk is not worth it!
In addition, licensed contractors are aware of the safety precautions which they are required, by law, to follow. At Jasper, we strive every day to train and enforce the stringent standards established by the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OSHA). Whenever you see Jasper, you will see professional crews wearing harnesses, hardhats and safety goggles. Simply put, we value our employees and look after their well-being. No one plans for an accident to happen but, if it ever does, both you and our workers are protected.
