Are you thinking this winter may be the last for your roof? Maybe you’ve been considering getting a roof for a few years now and you are ready to make the decision come Spring time. Before you take the next step of looking up roofing contractors, make sure your prepared with these questions when you call them:
Experience: This is an important one. Now days, with the right paper work anybody can appear to be a real roofing contractor. You’ll want to confirm with the company how long they have been in business and how many projects they’ve completed. You don’t want to invest money into a company that has only completed a few roofing jobs.
Insurance: Don’t just take their word for it. Verify that they hold the insurance they have and make sure they have personal and property insurance.
Testimonials/ Recent Projects: Any reputable company should have a working website you can visit and inspect their work. Make sure to Google their company name and see what people have to say about their work. Check sites like Home Adviser, Google Business, and Yelp!
Scope of Work: This one may seem obvious, but its important to go over. You should make sure that the roofing contractor you are considering includes clean up after construction is complete. The last thing you want to deal with after a new roofing project is debris flying all over your shrubbery and yard.
Warranty Information: Any roofing contractor that is worth it should have some type of warranty offered on their work. Shop around a few contractors to see what type of warranties are typical in your area.
Locality: Now days there are many contractor companies floating around. We recommend going with a local contractor who knows the climate in your area and can best advise you on your project. Make sure the company you are dealing with is truly local, and they aren’t sending your project to a subcontractor.
