Hiring a Contractor in TN

Have you ever wondered, “Where do I start when I need to hire a contractor?”

One of your best resources is your state website.  Tennessee offers a free PDF specifically about Verifying and Selecting Home Contractors.  We have had quite a few nasty thunderstorms move through our area and with storms, come storm chasers.  TN.gov also has lists of contractors who have their licenses revoked, problem contractors, or are under disciplinary action. Additionally, you can search by contractor to find their license information (RD Herbert & Sons).

The Better Business Bureau of TN allows you to check out a business by category (roofing contractor) or by name (RD Herbert & Sons).  Business are not required to be accredited by the BBB, however they are still graded and complaints are tracked and listed.

Before hiring a roofing contractor, letting your fingers “walk” these sites on the internet will save you headaches down the road.
