Hiring a knowledgeable, experienced and reliable contractor for your roofing project is an essential step before the work on your roof is started, but it is not the only step that must be accomplished – your roofer must also pull a permit for your roof before the project commences.
Here is why:
- Ensuring that your roofer is legally allowed to work on your roof – the permit for your roof is obtained by your roofer from the authorities of your town based on the contractor’s license and insurance. This also means that the permit ensures you that your Colorado Springs roofing company is legit and that you will be protected by insurance in case an accident or some other unwanted event takes place during the roofing process;
- Ensuring that your roof will be up to code – roofing permits are issued to the roofer, then, when the project is complete, an inspector of your municipality will come to check the quality of the roofing work. This means that your roof will be verified by a third-party authority and will ensure that your roof is in compliance with all applicable codes;
- Aspects related to insurance – insurers might offer more favorable conditions and lower premiums on roofs that are in compliance with applicable regulations.
