Roofing ContractorThe process of repairing of replacing a roof system can be overwhelming, according to Scott Kawalok, executive project manager for Frederick, Colo.-based B & M Roofing.

Consumers need to be aware of technical roofing terms and how to evaluate multiple proposals, while contractors must be prepared to serve a variety of clients with different knowledge bases.  Kawalok’s column, “Top five things contractors wish their customers knew,” posted to, the official consumer website of the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) provides advice to consumers about what they should know before they start the process of hiring a roofing contractor. Kawalok’s column is posted on the site’s “From the Experts” page.

The column recommends that all homeowners and building owners understand a cheaper price doesn’t mean they are getting a better value and a knowledgeable and experienced contractor is more important than price. In addition, they should recognize how important routine maintenance is to the life of a roof system while also knowing when a roof is beyond repair and in need of replacement.

In addition, Kawalok reminds consumers to find a roofing contractor who is established and reputable with proper licensing and valid insurance, and is a member of NRCA and a local association.
