Hiring a Roofing Contractor? Ask these Important Questions

Leaks, moisture, and other roof-related problems result in discomfort and inconvenience to homeowners. To fix these problems, be sure to ask for professional help. Ask these key questions of your prospective roofing contractor before hiring them.

Roofing Contractor

What is the Company Name and Its Location?

The first thing to know when having roof construction or remodeling done is the full name of your chosen roofing company. This will enable you to look them up and check their background. You also have to check their address and find out if they offer services in your area. If they do, they’re more likely to understand what your home needs because they live in the area and so know exactly what it is exposed to on a daily basis.

Are They Licensed?

The process and requirements to acquire a license for a roofing company differ by state. Contractors are also required to have licenses in some cities. Check whether your prospective roofing contractor is licensed in your area and if they have committed any violations.

What Warranties Do They Have for Their Roofing Work?

A good roofing contractor provides two separate warranties for their materials and work. A roof warranty typically lasts for a year, but some roofers give warranties good for longer periods.

Do They Have Homeowner References?

If their previous customers were happy with their performance and craftsmanship, then there will be no trouble asking your roofing contractor for a local residence you can visit to check their work. However, there are past clients who value their privacy and do not want their roofers to spill information. So be sure to personally follow up or communicate with homeowners and know if they were satisfied or not.
