Tip #2- Check the roofing company’s contractor license with the state
CC&L Roofing Company is fully licensed, bonded and insured in the State of Oregon and the State of Washington. You can go to the Oregon Construction Contractors Board website at www.ccb.state.or.us and type in any contractors CCB number, the website for the Washington Dept of Labor & Industries is www.lni.wa.gov and works the same way. This state license number is required to be listed on all estimates that any contractor provides. When you look up a roofing company’s license on the website, it tells you how long they have been licensed, all of their current bond and insurance information, if there are any complaints or judgments against them, and also tells you if they have previously had other contracting businesses under different names. This is a great resource and should be used any time you hire a contractor!
