You, as our valued customer (and potential future reference) need to know what your
rights as a consumer are when hiring a roofing contractor. You can always go to the
California Contractors State License Board to find out what your rights are, but we’d like to
help you out with this as well.
The following is the full disclosure information about Landeros Roofing Solutions that we
would like you to know, and to which you are legally entitled:
LANDEROS ROOFING SOLUTIONS'
"FULL DISCLOSURE" INFORMATION
- LICENSE INFORMATION: State law requires anyone who contracts to do
construction work to be licensed by the Contractors State License Board in the
license category in which the contractor is going to be working—if the total
price of the job is $500 or more (including labor and materials). Licensed
contractors are regulated by laws designed to protect the public.
If you contract with someone who does not have a license, the Contractors
State License Board may be unable to assist you with a complaint. Your only
remedy against an unlicensed contractor may be in civil court, and you may be
liable for damages arising out of any injuries to the contractor or his or her
You may contact the Contractors State License Board to find out if this
contractor has a valid license. The Board has complete information on the
history of licensed contractors, including any possible suspensions,
revocations, judgments, and citations. The Board has offices throughout
California. Please check the government pages of the White Pages for the
office nearest you, visit www.cslb.ca.gov or call 1-800-321-CSLB for more
- CONTRACTORS BOND: Our $15,000 Contractor’s Bond is with American
Contractors Indemnity Company. (NOTE: This bond isn't intended as any kind
of protection for you. It merely covers employee payroll issues and the like...)
- COMMERCIAL GENERAL LIABILITY (CGL) INSURANCE: This can
protect against third-party bodily injury and accidental property damage.
It is not intended to cover the work the contractor performs. As the
International Risk Management Institute explains in its Guide to
Construction Insurance, CGL insurance protects "the insured contractor
from liability to members of the public (other than employees) for bodily
injury, property damage, or personal injury caused by virtually any
The Contractors' License Law does not require contractors to carry CGL
insurance. However, Landeros Roofing Solutions maintains a
$2,000,000 aggregate CGL policy (Occurrence-type 2016-17 Policy #
GL3955098) with an A+ rated carrier: Colony Insurance Company
(condos and townhomes are covered). Additional Insured Certificates
are available upon request.
- WORKERS COMPENSATION INSURANCE: LRS is covered by State
Compensation Insurance Fund (2017-18 Policy #3018846).
NOTE: Please be aware that in ordered to be licensed by the State,
every roofing company in California MUST carry Workers Compensation
Insurance, EVEN IF THEY DO NOT HAVE EMPLOYEES.
- OUR SUBCONTRACTORS list us as Additional Insured on their own
Commercial General Liability Insurance policies.
- REFERENCES: Online reviews through Google and Yelp! are an easy way to
check us out. Other references may be requested.
- CONTRACTS: For jobs in excess of $750.00, the State requires that we ask
you to review and sign an extensive agreement for the work. Each agreement
will indicate when the work should start and end, give a detailed description of
the work to be done and the material to be used, describe payment terms and
tell you how you may cancel the contract. They will also state that all changes
or additions causing a change in price of the job must be in writing to reduce
the possibilities of later disputes.
- RIGHT TO CANCEL: You have a 3-business-day legal right to cancel after
signing our written contract, unless you check and initial the waiver in order to
obtain immediate service.
- JOB PERMITS: We will obtain all required job permits required for your job and
their cost is included in our bid.
- WARRANTY: Our roofing repairs generally carry at least a 12-month warranty
on our workmanship.
- PAYMENT TERMS: We rarely require a down payment, but if we do, it may not
be more than 10% of the contract price or $1000, whichever is less. We accept
personal checks for less than $5,000; please remit payments in excess of
$5,000 via cashier’s check. We also accept American Express, VISA, Discover
and MasterCard credit cards, with a 3% processing fee for all amounts charged
over $1,000.00 (to cover the fee we get charged).
