Hiring Licensed Roofers to Work on Your Washington, D.C. Home Will Prevent Potential Problems

Roofers Washington D.C. When researching roofers to work on your Washington, D.C., home, the first thing you should find out about a company is whether its technicians are licensed to work in your area. That’s because hiring a company that does not have the proper licenses may result in potentially costly problems down the road.

Though hiring unlicensed roofers to work on your residence in Washington, D.C., can be tempting, as they often provide cheaper labor, there a number of reasons why this can be a bad idea. For example:

  • In the event that an unlicensed roofer does not perform satisfactory work, you have limited legal recourse. Whereas issues with a licensed company can be mediated through the licensing agency, you will need to file a costly civil suit with an unlicensed contractor.
  • Often, roofers with no license also have no insurance. This means that if an employee gets injured while working on your home that you may be responsible for his or her medical bills.
  • Unlicensed roofers may not have knowledge of local building codes. In the event that you choose to sell your home and an inspector sees that your roof is not built to code, it can significantly decrease its value.
