What to Know

Selecting a roofing contractor

You can be confident that the job will be done right with Arcona Roofing

    • Before you spend your money, please take some time to evaluate the roofing contractor that may do the work. Not all contractors are professional.

    • Check for a permanent place of business, telephone number, tax ID number, and a business license.

    • Check with the better business bureau for possible complaints and check the companies track record, ask for references.

    • Make sure the roofing contractor carries proper liability insurance, or are they relying on your insurance?

    • If a contractor has not paid their WCB account, the building owner is responsible for the medical costs of a worker that is injured on the property. Make sure that the contractors WCB account is current and call the Clearance department at WCB.

    • Choose a company that is concerned and committed to the safety of it’s workers, your property, and the public from potential accidents. A commitment to safety indicates a commitment to quality.

    • Insist on a written quote and check it for a complete description of work, materials that will be used and approximate start and end dates. DETAILS ARE IMPORTANT

    • The Roofing Contractors Association of British Columbia (RCABA) gives members training and support to allow them to provide customers with the highest quality roofing practices and guarantees in the roofing industry. Try to choose contractors that are members of the RCABC.

    • Keep a healthy skepticism about the lowest bid. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Many operators may seem attractive by their low bids, but are often uninsured or underinsured and do substandard work. In most cases they will tell you what you want to hear instead of what you need to know. The price may seem great but could lead to disastrous results if an improper roofing system is suggested and installed.
