You have decided it’s time to repair or replace your existing roof. It can be tricky locating the right contractor to do the best job for you. There are a number of things to ask when searching for the right contractor. 

Here are some questions to consider: 

Does the company know the local laws and regulations? 

This should be one of the first questions you ask. If the contractor is not familiar with local permits and regulations, there could be added fees tacked on to the project. It is best to work with a company that understands the ins and outs of the law.

Is the company insured? Are they bonded? 

You want to work with a company that offers compensation and liability insurance in an unfortunate accidental event. Roofing projects can be quite dangerous and accidents do happen. You want to be sure you are working with a company that recognizes the importance of caring for their team and your home.  

Does the company have references? 

Your home is your greatest asset. You want to work with a company that can be trusted and is reliable. The wise consumer will ask neighbors and friends for their experiences with the company. Having a contractor willing to present references upfront can build your confidence in their ability to perform the job successfully. 

Does the company operate locally? 

Make sure the company has a current license to work in your hometown. The scamming, storm-chasing roof companies will only be available until your immediate needs are met. Be wary of door-to-door roofing salesmen. While the bid may be less expensive than others, the quality and care may be lacking. 

Does the company offer a written bid?

It is good to read over what the company is willing to provide and to read the small details before a job begins. It may be tempting to immediately accept a low bid, but is that the wise option? 

As John Ruskin, an English philosopher, once said, “It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money – that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do.”

Does the company do free inspections?

In order to figure out whether you need a repair done, or a complete roof replacement, a reliable company will offer you a free inspection. They can guide you through the process of decision-making, taking the time to answer any questions. 

What are some other basic questions to consider when seeking a roofing contractor?

  • Is your work covered by a manufacturer warranty?
  • How do you keep projects on schedule?
  • What is your inclement weather policy?
  • Do you remove the old roofing materials? Do you recycle? Will I have a disposal charge?
  • How do you invoice? 
  • Do you offer financing? 
  • What types of roofs do you install?
