Choose a roofing expert

Before choosing your roofer for your roofing work, there are several things to consider and check.

Licence, permits and insurance

To legally carry out his activities, the contractor must hold a licence from the Régie du bâtiment du Québec (RBQ), which confirms its competence and integrity. Check the roofer's licence you intend to hire and the validity of his number. The latter, composed of 10 figures, must be on its estimates, contracts and invoices.

Compulsory insurance

The contractor must be registered as an employer with the Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST). This insurance service protects his business from the risk of a significant financial burden that may result from a professional error.

The contractor must also confirm that he has civil liability insurance for the duration of the work. The insurance provides protection against claims for damages, for injury or property damage caused by the contractor or its employees.

RBQ licence deposit

A roofing contractor applying for a licence must post a bond of $20,000 with the Régie du bâtiment du Québec. In fact, bail was recently increased from $10,000 to $20,000. This sum is used to guarantee the execution of its contractual obligations and to compensate any customer who has suffered damage for work not carried out, not completed or carried out in an inadequate manner.
