American Choice Roofing: Scam Alert! Run away from these guys! Currently they’re under investigation for contractor fraud. I signed a contract with American Choice Roofing and gave them 50% of the contract price because they claimed they could install a new roof for me the very next day. I found them through Home Advisor who has suggested some excellent contractors to me in the past. Unfortunately, American Choice Roofing is a bad apple that conned its way into the Home Advisor barrel. I asked for proof of insurance several times which they never provided me. What they did do was to schedule a work day and they never showed up! I cancelled the contract within 3 business days of signing the contract. According to the law, contractors have 10 business days after a customer’s valid cancellation to return the customer’s deposit. The deposit I gave them of $3,822.50 was never returned. Now they ignore my communications and I have had to resort to our legal system for justice. Google “Yelp” and read their reviews. Wow! American Choice Roofing even ripped off a church! Despicable!
The were to remove 2 skylights and replace shingles...….never showed up to finish job and they had been paid in full. Had to get someone else to do the job. American Choice refused to return my money for work not completed and was very nasty on phone, yelling and cursing. If they call you, they will pressure you to sign a contract. Don't do it!!!!!

Best Questions to Ask a Roofer Contractor
Is your bill for Roofing in Horsham an estimate or a final price?
This is very important, since an estimate is just that. Many contractors will submit a "paper estimate", meaning they've written the estimate down on paper. The bill is the true amount owed and will almost always say "Invoice" or "Bill" at the top of the page. The bill should also list the date it was issued, the due date of payment, and a list of services rendered.
What guarantees and/or warranties can you give me? Are you a warranty agent for any brands?
These first two questions should only relate to services or good purchased directly from the service provider. Many products carry their own warranties, like roofing shingles or siding. It's useful to know what these warranties cover as well as how long they last. The "warranty agent" question is important, because often warranty agents work with the manufacturer to get you repairs under warranty at a much lower price.
Do you hire properly documented Roofing workers?
This will be answered when you ask if all employees are licensed. The only way to obtain a legitimate tradesman's license is to be a legal or naturalized citizen of the US. The company may employ people in positions that don't require a license, however, so it's wise to inquire.
Are you insured and/or bonded for Roofing?
You'll certainly want to ask them this. Steer clear of any company that is not insured in Pennsylvania, because that means that any incidental damage they may do on your property will be a real hassle to recover compensation for. It is never wise to work with uninsured tradesmen of any kind. Most states also require that someone have insurance in order to be issued a trade license. If they say they're licensed but not insured, they're being less than truthful.
