Before hiring someone to undertake your roofing project, you should ask certain questions to ensure you get quality work. Conduct thorough interviews, and you’re sure to get the best candidate for the job. Failing to do so could end in unsatisfactory work leading to costly roof repairs and leaks in the future.
These are the four most essential questions you need to ask prospective roofing contractors:
Are You Licensed?
Ask the roofing contractor if they have a license to work in your city or state. Some cities and counties require a contractor to have a license. Check with your local regulatory offices. Is your roofer’s license current? Does it have any outstanding violations? Violations are typically a red flag, particularly if there are too many recurring or similar ones.
Where Is Your Physical Address?
Always ask for the roofing company’s full name and its physical location. If the roofing company doesn’t have a physical business address, drop it from your list immediately, and move on. You can ask neighbors and acquaintances for recommendations of roofers they may have worked with in the past.
Do You Have References?
Premier roofing companies will have no problem giving you a list of references. In fact, the exceptional ones will gladly furnish them for you as that gives them an opportunity to prove their trustworthiness. Nothing speaks better about a company than their previously completed projects.
Are You Insured?
Roofing contractors should always have workers’ compensation and liability insurance. The former protects you, the homeowner, if a roofing company’s employee gets injured during the course of the project. Without it, you may be responsible for medical bills and other costs. Liability insurance, on the other hand, protects you from work damage caused by the roofers.
