Hiring a Roof Cleaning Company? Avoid These Mistakes!

Are you looking to hire a professional roof cleaning company? Is it time for you to take the steps that will beautify your home and increase its market value once and for all? If so, we are glad you decided to spend some time checking out this week’s blog. At Fiddler Roof Cleaning, we always aim to do our best to educate past, present and future customers. Here are some mistakes that you should avoid when hiring a professional roof cleaning team.

The Fine Print

How many times have you signed something without reading the entire document? In all honesty, this is something that we are all probably guilty of. No matter how long you discuss an arrangement with a company or how many hands you shake, it is imperative that you read the contact/Terms of Agreement carefully. After all, if things don’t go well, you will need a binding contract in the event that you need to take an issue with the company that you hire to court. If you’re hiring a company to work on a huge project and the contract is far too complicated for you to understand, don’t be afraid to hire a lawyer to review and break it down for you. Will you lose your deposit if you cancel a day before the company is scheduled to arrive? Are you entitled to pay extra if the job takes longer than anticipated? Does the company expect you to clean up after they are done working? These are all questions that can be answered in the very fine print of the contract.

Insurance, Insurance, Insurance

In week 3 of our blog, we did a piece that clearly explained all there is to know about Workers’ Compensation Code 5551 as it pertains to the roof cleaning industry. This compensation code is important because it will protect you as a customer if one of the workers cleaning your roof suffers an injury while cleaning your roof. Believe it or not, the fact is, not all companies on the market are properly insured. The last thing you need is to end up in a predicament where you’re forced to pay for hospital bills for months simply because the company you hired didn’t have proper insurance coverage. It is up to you to ask the right questions and do ample research to ensure that above all you are protected.

Can You Do Me a Favor Please?

Have you ever hired a moving company and asked for extra boxes and moving supplies? But when you got your bill you realized that the extra moving supplies you thought were free really cost you a few hundred bucks? Well, even though you won’t need any boxes to clean your roof, the same premise can be applied when it comes to asking for perks and extras. Perhaps you want the company to change the scheduled time and arrive at your residence an hour later. Or maybe you want them to dump the chemicals that they usually use and clean your roof with a special cleaner that you saw on an infomercial. No matter what the case may be, you should realize that you will likely be charged for the services that you actually receive and not just the estimated price. All of these extras can add up in a hurry.

Skipping the Warranty

If you were to hire an experienced and proven company like Fiddler Roof Cleaning, you have no reason to believe that you won’t get excellent roof cleaning services. However, you should have the foresight to see that sometimes a warranty can come in handy. This is especially true if you live near the beach or in an area where your roof will be exposed to lots of Mother Nature’s elements. Be sure to inquire about both the workmanship warranty and the roof cleaning services warranty as well. Try to connect with a company that offers at least a 2-year warranty.

Making A Rushed Decision

If you’ve been procrastinating for a while about hiring a roof cleaning company, you should spend a little quality time deciding which company to hire, reading the fine print on the contract and making sure that you have the right insurance coverage. Whenever you are spending your money and investing in something, it is imperative that you do whatever it takes to make sure you’re getting a great deal.
