How to Check if a Roofing Contractor is Licensed and Insured:
Before hiring a roofing contractor, always double check that the company is licensed and insured. This may seem like an unnecessary step, especially if you know the contractor, or if they come recommended to you by a friend. However, checking a contractor’s license and insurance is important, because as the homeowner, you are responsible if someone is injured while working on your home and the contractor is not insured.
Fortunately, checking if a roofer is licensed is a simple process. Find your state’s online database of licensed contractors. Enter the contractor’s name, the company name, or the license number to find out if the roofing contractor is licensed.
In Florida, go to MyFloridaLicense.com, a database managed by the Florida Department of Business and Professional regulation.
To search the database by name in Florida, you can enter the contractor’s name or the company name. In order to see results with both exact name matches and similar names, check the boxes for those filters.
How to Find Out if a Roofer is Insured
In order to find out if a roofer is insured, you’ll need to ask the roofer for proof of insurance and call the insurance company. When you get an estimate for your roof, ask the estimator for their certificate of insurance. Then, call the insurance company to inquire about the insurance policy. Verify that the roofing company is covered and that their insurance plan will cover the estimate for a roof replacement on your home.
Insured Roofing Company
Your roofing company should carry General Liability Insurance & Workmen’s Compensation Insurance. These two types of insurance provide comprehensive coverage for operations and employees and protect the homeowner from liability. By law, all contractors are required to carry up-to-date insurance. Your roofing company should show you proof of insurance if you ask for it.
