Hiring a Reputable Contractor

December 11, 2013

Hiring a contractor can be a daunting task, especially after a disaster when you need one the most. As you attempt to restore your life and home, the availability of local companies and individuals to perform the necessary services will be limited. Ideally, you should try to select contractors you may need on an urgent basis before you need them. The stress after a disaster can make you very anxious to get your life back to normal as quickly as possible. The following resources will help you as you make these decisions.

The Division of Professional Regulation licenses roofers in Illinois and has prepared a list of licensed roofers working in Illinois. It is especially important for home and business owners in the communities affected by the weekend storms to make sure that only licensed roofers perform necessary repairs to their damaged property. During the aftermath of a natural disaster, unscrupulous or unlicensed companies may try to take advantage of uninformed property owners. For help finding a roofer, please refer to the list available at www.IDFPR.com.
