Avoid Hiring a Bad Contractor with These Tips!

Contractors across the board tend to get a bad rap for reliability and quality of work. When it comes time to make an investment in your home or business, you want to make sure that the contractors you hire will do a quality job. Not sure how to hire the best contractor for the job? Read on to get a few tips from our roofing company at the Lake of the Ozarks

#1 Ask For a Referral 

One of the best ways to find a great contractor is to ask for a referral from your friends or family. You'll likely get several companies to choose from, so it's important to do further research before hiring a company. A great way to further your research is to check online reviews. Looking at online reviews will often determine how the company is doing. Above & Beyond Roofing encourages everyone to check out our online reviews! Below is one of our recent reviews from one of our many happy customers!

#2 Check BBB Rating 

A great reference check for contracting companies is to research the company on the Better Business Bureau. BBB's Vision is, "An ethical marketplace where buyers and sellers trust each other." They have a rating system that ranges from A+ to F. It's important to go directly to their website to do your research because it is not uncommon for unethical contractors to boast A+ BBB Ratings when in fact they don't. Above & Beyond Roofing has A+ Rating with the BBB!

#3 Confirm the Contractor has Workers' Comp and Insurance 

You may not realize it, but if a contractor does not carry workers' compensation, and an accident happens on your property while they are working, you could be liable for the injuries rather than the contractor. That's why you should never skip confirmation on Workers' Comp!

For similar reasons, you should also ensure that the contractor you hire has at least liability insurance in case damage occurs on your property and the fault lies on the contractor. 

#4 Choose a Contractor You Want to Support! 

Another factor you may not have considered when choosing a contractor is choosing a contractor that supports the community and organizations you are a part of. Not all companies support the community and charity organizations and if that is something important to you, it's a great way to choose a contractor! Above & Beyond is well known for community involvement and donating to charitable organizations. We support numerous Lake Area Events like the Great Dam Duck Drop, Change of Heart Fun Run, Totes for Ta Tas, and donating to local food banks are just a small portion of our community involvement and charitable donations given by Above & Beyond Roofing.
