Michael’s Roofing, Siding & Windows – Our Experience & Qualifications

Important Information to Know Before You Compare Your Estimates

Qualified roof worker

Comparing estimates can be very confusing. There are lots of companies out there that may or may not have the proper credentials to properly compare.

One of the biggest and most important things is the Workman’s Compensation Insurance. This is SEPARATE from the general liability that the cities require. They get around this loophole by claiming that they have no employees, and only use subcontractors. Then what happens is the subcontractor does not have the Workman’s Compensation Insurance, and when a worker gets hurt, it falls back on the PROPERTY OWNER! Only about 10% of roofing contractors carry this coverage, and they get by with being the “cheapest” deal, every day.

Injured worker without workers compensation insurance

Another big factor is the workers themselves. If you are hiring the company, then they are deciding who is really is doing the work. They put a subcontractor on your roof, at their choice, which is usually based on how cheap they will perform the work for.

Do they have the proper training? Do they use safe practices? Are they licensed? Are they insured? Are they competent, reliable, quality oriented? Most companies will look you in the eye and lie to you.

Our roofers have been with us for years, are cross-trained for many tasks, and are fully competent. We want the best workers possible, so that we do not have warranty issues later, so that your home is well maintained, and so that you will refer us to your friends and family!

Hard to obtain roofing contractor licensing

Another issue is the licensing. It is difficult to acquire a license in the State of Illinois. There are MANY roofs being completed by unlicensed contractors. This is because they are the “cheapest”. We understand the value of the dollar, and we know that it is tempting and that they are so convincing, but in the end, if you want high quality, great workmanship, and a job completed by fully insured professionals, then you should expect to pay a little more.
