As we all know roofing is a seasonal trade and there is a high demand for it. A poor maintained roof will always cause problems if the problems are not solved from the root. Where do we start to get things right for your new roof? Make sure they are insured to protect yourself first thing.

Choosing the right roofing contractor who will honor his work and his word is a homework for the homeowners to study. There are many details that needs to be taken to a consideration.  For example commercial liability insurance is required for any contractor to perform work in or around your house to protect you from any damage or failure during or after the work was performed. This will cover your home, your vehicles and any other details that belongs to you. WSIB is a must for any roofing contractor to work under all the safety regulations and rules for safer work environment for all the employees. This coverage will protect all the employees and their families from injuries or even fatalities if there will be one. There are safety officers driving around and paying a surprise visit to random contractors while they are working to examine the safety standards and if not met to warn or fine them thousands of dollars for not working under the safety act. All the workers should be wearing steel-toed boots and tied down while working on the roof. Did you know that if a contractor gets injured at your house while working and does not have insurance do you know who is liable for that??? You, the homeowner who hired the contractor. Always check for commercial liability and wsib insurance certificate before hiring a roofing contractor.

Roofing is a dangerous trade and chances of survival from a two-story home is pretty slim, don’t you think?  You might get a cheaper estimate from them but that is why it is so cheap, because they do not have to pay for insurance.
