You should select a contractor that you are comfortable with and have confidence in.Empire Roofing & Restoration will provide you not only with customer references but suppliers as well. Call our previous customers to see how pleased they were with our services. Check with our suppliers and ask them if we pay on time. You should check any contractor’s references and professional organizations they belong to. Remember to present a copy of your insurance estimate to your contractor. In most cases, your contractor will work off this particular estimate. This also ensures you are following the scope of your insurance company to make sure you qualify for the recoverable depreciation upon final billing. If there is any discrepancy between your insurance company’s recommended scope and your contractor’s recommended scope, be sure to get your insurance company approval to work with your contractor to negotiate and settle on a scope of work, prior to commencing any repairs.
