When looking for a roof installation contractor, it’s important to vet your candidates carefully. Before signing a contract, make sure you ask the following questions and receive satisfactory answers.
Do You Have a License?
Most states require roofers to have a license or equivalent documentation as proof that they can provide acceptable professional roof work. This is your way to make sure that you’re hiring roofers that have the skills and equipment necessary to get the job done. If they can’t show you a license, look for another roofer.
Are you insured?
Roof repair or replacement can be a risky job. If someone gets injured or property is damaged during your project, the last thing you want is to be held liable for the damage. Always ask for worker’s compensation and general liability insurance to protect yourself from unexpected expenses.
Can You Provide a Detailed Written Estimate?
Providing written estimates should be standard procedure for roofers, but you have to be particular about the “detailed” part of the question. A written estimate should include a detailed breakdown of the cost so you know exactly what to expect. If your roofer can’t provide a written estimate with a thorough breakdown of the costs, you’re better off looking for someone else.
Do You Work With Subcontractors?
Some roofers will hire subcontractors to perform the work for them. While this is not necessarily bad practice, there’s a chance that the quality of the work they have in their portfolio will be different from what you get, because they might be hiring different people with different skills and equipment. If you want to make sure you get good results, go for roofers that have their own team of specialists.
