Being insured and bonded can make all the difference in the long run.

Published by Andrew Schmidt

When it comes to working on major projects around the house, the roofing system can be one of those projects that can cause many headaches if you don’t have the right team working on the project.  It is highly recommended to make sure that the company or team of workers that are offering their services to perform work on major construction projects around your home is bonded, licensed, and insured.  Often times, hiring someone that is not bonded or insured will be substantially cheaper and all the responsibility if something bad happens falls into the homeowners lap.  Always remember that even though the price may be very appealing, you get what you pay for.  Saving a few dollars up front ends up costing more in the long run.  Here is a short story of a recent colleague that experienced the hardship of what it means to be bonded and insured.

Owners of a recently purchased bed and breakfast outside the Milwaukee area, experienced heavy rainfall this past autumn and were exasperated to the amount of rain that found its way into the home.  Reflecting back on the negotiations of the sale of the house, the previous owners were supposed to have fulfiller their obligations by installing a new roof to the establishment.  The problem was that the previous owners contracted a roofing company that was uninsured and un-bonded.  The party responsible for the poorly installed roof is now on the previous owner and not on the roofing company that did the work.  This makes more headaches and problems for the new owners to be able to resolve the situation in order to continue to make money as a bed and breakfast establishment.

It is very important that anyone you work with is licensed, bonded, and insured.  Once you know that they are by researching and confirming that they are being truthful.  It’s always a good idea to ask for referrals from a trusted neighbor, friend or co-worker. However, be sure they’re not a family friend, a guy that does side jobs or an unemployed worker trying to make ends meet.
