When planning a roof replacement or other home improvement project, make sure to hire only a reliable contractor for the job. Check them for the necessary license, bond and insurance. You can also look them up on the Better Business Bureau (BBB), which works to help homeowners connect with a local professional that best exemplifies honest business practices and dependable performance. BBB assigns ratings for contractors –with A plus being the highest of them.
