Siding FAQ

1. Question You Should Ask: Are you licensed?
Answer: In North Carolina a general contractor license is not required for jobs under $30,000. I am a certified roofing contractor with GAF, OC, and IKO and I am a preferred contractor with James Hardie siding. It is important to ensure the company you choose complies with all state laws.
2. Question You Should Ask: Do you have workman’s comp insurance?
Answer: Yes, Workman's comp insurance can be an expensive cost some roofing companies will not carry, however, it is the law. If an injury were to occur the cost could be carried by the homeowner so it is prudent to find a company that carries this important insurance.
3. Question You Should Ask: Do you carry general liability insurance?
