Your home’s roofing system is only as good as the installation and the materials used. That’s why it’s important to use good quality products and professional contractors when repairing or installing a new roof. Before you commit to your roofer, there are a few very specific roofing questions you should ask to make sure that they are above-board and the best choice for you.
- Reviews and Referrals
As you begin your search, it’s likely that you have neighbors, family or friends who told you about a roofing company that they worked with, whether good or bad. You’re going to take these referrals and check them out online. Check on what other customers say about their experience with that roofing company.
- Licensing and Insurance
Verify that the roofing contractor or business is legitimate by asking for the tax identification number, business address, website or email address, and contact phone number. An unlicensed contractor without insurance means no liability or worker’s compensation insurance. Any damages to your home wouldn’t be covered by the roofer, so you’re responsible for paying for any repairs.
You don’t want to be worrying about the safety measures actively taken by the crew members and if everyone is acting in a safe manner. Ask your potential roofing contractors what safety training they have done.
Warranties are extremely important when it comes to your roofing services. These warranties guarantee that the project will be completed to your expectations or that additional services will be implemented until it meets your specific needs.
Though a roofing contractor may be busy and not respond immediately, it’s still important to ensure that there is good, clear communication between each party. Good communication in the initial stages helps to ensure that the project will be completed efficiently and according to all of your needs.
A written contract protects you as the homeowner. It should clearly outline product detail, payment schedules, roofing materials used, details about the inspection of the existing roof, repair or replacement.
