Finding a Longwood roof repair contractor is simple if you look for these three items on their resume. You’ll find these qualifications and more when you look at Advantage Roofing.
Roof repairs are essential to your roof’s longevity and your home’s protection. When hiring a Longwood roof repair contractor, check for these credentials before they climb a ladder. You shouldn’t leave this job to any home maintenance professional. And you definitely shouldn’t try to DIY a roof project!
Your Contractor Should Be Licensed
It may go without saying, but we’ll say it anyway, your roofing contractor should be licensed by the State of Florida. To obtain this license, an individual must pass a computer exam in business and finance, followed by a trade-specific exam. In addition, there is an experience requirement depending on the individual’s educational background.
Hiring a licensed contractor protects you and the contractor from penalty. If you knowingly hire an unlicensed roofing contractor, you and the contractor are subject to civil litigation, fines, and other penalties. Before you hire a Longwood roofing contractor, ask for their license number. If they can’t tell you their number, find another contractor.
For the record, we display our license information prominently on our website.
Your Contractor Should Be Insured
Insurance protects everyone – the contractor, the homeowner, and anyone who comes in contact with the roofing business. The type of insurance policies a roofing contractor carries will vary, but here are the most common insurance coverages held by roofers:
General Liability – A GL policy is required by most businesses in Florida and protects the company and its customers if there’s an injury or damage to a customer’s property.
Worker’s Compensation – Roofing work can be dangerous as individuals perform on steep heights daily using heavy equipment. A worker’s comp policy helps pay medical bills if a worker is injured on the job.
Commercial Auto – Not every roofing company holds this type of policy, but it is a good idea if a company has a fleet of vehicles. It is similar to a personal auto policy but for commercial vehicles.
Contractor’s Tools and Equipment – This insurance policy covers loss or damage to tools and equipment. If a roofing company has stolen tools while at your residence, this policy ensures you are not held responsible.
Your Contractor Should Have Experience

“We hired Advantage Roofing to replace the roof on our 2200 square-foot home in Chuluota. From beginning to end, they were true professionals, handling all the details and completing the job in just two days! Victor led a crew of five workers that we found out later were actually family members who worked together like a well-oiled machine.” ~Jamal G.
