This will give you a list of all Licensed Roofing Contractors

Example: Aspen Roofing – Several names will appear:

Aspen Roofing, Inc., 5003 Halfmoon Dr. Colorado Springs Colorado 80915 Is our company

Example of our company – Our Liability insurance is listed and our Workman’s Compensation policy is with Pinnacol, showing the dates that these policies renew.

If you find companies that have a “Letter to Exempt” in the Worker’s Comp. area, this means that they DO NOT carry workman’s compensation insurance. They are exempt for owners of the company ONLY, and are most likely not insured with Worker’s Comp. If you should hire a company that does not carry Worker’s Comp., you could be liable should someone get injured while working on your roof.

The insurance company needs to mail, fax or email the certificate directly to you. DO NOT let them hand you a paper that shows insurance information, anyone can doctor the information.
