Oklahoma Weather vs Your Roof – Who Will Win?

Spring is here and in Oklahoma that can often mean serious weather.  Our roofs often take a beating.

When the time comes to assess damage to your roof or having work done, here are some helpful tips to make sure you are getting what you pay for.

  • Look for an established, licensed or bonded roofer and request references. Oklahoma requires that roofers be registered with the state.  To see a list of the roofing contractors that have registered with the state you  can go to the Construction Industries Board site for Oklahoma and click on the roofers tab.
  • Ask to see certificates of insurance to be sure both Oklahoma General Liability and Workers Compensation insurance coverage are carried.
  •  Insist on a detailed, written estimate with a breakdown of labor and material charges.
  •  Carefully review and understand any warranties offered.  Make sure you understand the fine print.  This can keep you from inadvertently voiding a manufacturer’s warranty.
  •  Use caution (ask questions) before accepting a bid substantially lower than other bids covering the same repair work.  Sometimes you get what you pay for.
  •  Contact your local Better Business Bureau to check for complaints filed against the contractor.
