Who are “The Good Guys?” 2016-12-08T21:45:19+00:00

A good guy/good contractor is an insured, professional and licensed contractor that agrees to our contractor requirements.

What are your contractor requirements? 2016-12-09T20:41:04+00:00

Good question, you can find them here.

How do we select the contractors we refer? 2016-12-08T21:46:00+00:00

The contractors we refer are our customers and respected friends. They are people we know. We don’t refer a contractor unless we would be willing to hire them. If we are willing to hire them we are glad to refer them to a homeowner or building owner.

Why do we refer contractors to homeowners and building owners? 2016-12-12T17:25:38+00:00

We Know The Good Guys is a free Chicagoland roofing referral service sponsored by Lakefront Roofing and Siding Supply. Everyone benefits: homeowners and building owners, contractors and Lakefront Roofing and Siding Supply! Re-roofing your home or building doesn’t happen every day. It usually only occurs once every 15-20 years. We work hard to help homeowners and building owners with free advice. In return, the business is usually placed with us, through the contractor.

Do contractors pay for our referrals? 2016-12-08T21:46:16+00:00

No. If the referral results in a job, the contractor usually purchases the materials from Lakefront Roofing and Siding Supply. There is no binding agreement, only the understanding that we expect the homeowner or building owner to get great service.

How should you select a contractor? 2016-12-08T21:46:32+00:00

First, try to get a reliable referral. Next, the Contractor should provide proof of State License, Bonding, and Insurance coverage. Finally, make your choice based on written job estimates, and your personal assessment of their professional appeal and the answers to your questions.

What should you do if you want an additional contractor referral? 2016-12-08T21:47:37+00:00

You should interview at least two qualified contractors. If you interview more than three, the contractors generally feel their time may be wasted. We refer contractors based on the information you provide us. Should you feel a contractor is not qualified for the type of work your job requires, call us. We will gladly offer another referral.

Lakefront Roofing and Siding Supply does not guarantee, warrant, or represent the contractor, or their workmanship. 2016-12-08T21:57:55+00:00

Lakefront’s Contractor Referral Program is a free service offered to homeowners, building owners and qualified contractors. The main goal is to satisfy the homeowner and building owner and make the task of finding a quality contractor easier. If you have any questions or comments, just let us know!
