Why Choose Destin Roofing?
All Future Customers and Friends:
You are about to make an investment that will protect your home for many years to come. And there are many roofing companies out there claiming they offer the best service at the most affordable prices. How do you know which company is right for you?
We here at Destin Roofing Inc. understand that you know what you want, but may not know the questions you want to ask when deciding who you will trust your roof. We have generated a generalized checklist that may help you decide the right company for you:
Is the Roofing Company Licensed, Insured, and Bonded?
Florida has a strict Building Code that protects you and your interests. Unlike many other states in this union, Florida requires an individual to pass a certification test, verifiable experience, a criminal background check, and a credit check before they will issue a Roofing License. You can verify a Roofing License through MyFloridaLicense.com and choosing the “Verify A License” tab.
Destin Roofing is a State Certified Roofing Contractor (License #1330270), Bonded, and Insured. We have no issues providing any necessary documentation to help set your mind at ease.
Will the Roofing Company File for a Roofing Permit?
It is illegal for a non-licensed contractor to install a roof without a permit for the work being performed at your home. If an inspector does not see a permit, they can shut the project down and arrest anyone who performs further work at that location until a permit is filed. Imagine your exposed roof decking subject to Florida weather for several days until you can locate a roofer that will finish the work to protect your home. Additionally, insurance companies verify installation dates and Florida Building Code compliance by investigating permits issued at your location. If no permit was pulled, they can declare your home uninsurable until a new roof is installed.
Destin Roofing will not install a roof at without a permit. This is to protect your interest and any future homeowner of that residence. We aim to please; however, it is against the law, so please don’t ask us to compromise this rule.
How Long has the Roofing Company Been in Business in Your Area?
There are a lot of companies that have only been in business a short time, yet they offer 5 and 10-year Workmanship Warranties. Or worse, they have closed one company and started another company under a different name to avoid litigation for past issues.
Destin Roofing Inc. has served Okaloosa, Walton, Escambia, and Bay Counties since 1981. We offer a 10-Year Workmanship Warranty, and we will be here to honor our warranty for years to come.
Who will Be Performing the Actual Work?
More than just a few companies hire subcontractors to perform the work bid. This helps create a layer between the homeowner and the contractor.
Destin Roofing is building the relationship with you. We perform all of our own work. There may be situations where the homeowner asks for work outside of the scope of our license. In these cases we will refer companies that are properly licensed to perform the scope of work required; however, we will never subcontract work that we have agreed to perform.
What is the Reputation of the Roofing Company?
Fortunately, the homeowner has more resources than ever to verify reputation through organizations such as the Better Business Bureau, Angie’s List, and various other avenues. Destin Roofing takes pride in our A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, and referrals from Angie’s List.
We understand we may not be the right company for everyone. And we may not be the least expensive bid; however, we strive to do every job to the best of our ability. We do what we say we will do. Our goal is to make every customer; even our first customer, our lifetime customer.
