When searching for the right roofer, it is always important to do your research. A roofer should absolutely be licensed by the State of California. If you want to verify a roofer’s license, simply visit www.CSLB.CS.gov. Another helpful website to check out is the Roofing Contractor’s Association of Southern California at www.rcasocal.org. One smart tip for determining a roofer’s license is to ask the roofer for a list of previous clients and companies they have worked with. This will help legitimize the roofer’s experience and offer more credibility. Another piece of advice would be to ask the roofer directly for a roofing license number which should be class “C-39”. A “B” class license only reflects the designation of a general contracting license.
To verify the license, call the Contractors State License Board at (800) 321-2752. Before you let anyone start work on your property; it is wise to verify the roofers certificate of insurance for both liability and Workers Compensation.
Never forget to protect yourself and your property above all else!
