Not all roofers are the same, and when you have someone repairing or installing your roof, you want someone with the right experience, reliability, and reputation. If you hire the wrong roofing company, you risk the project taking too long or an improper repair that requires costly fixes in the future.
If you want to make sure the job is done right the first time, here are three questions you should ask before hiring a roofer.
3 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Roofer
1. Do You Have Insurance?
A roofing company should have comprehensive liability and workers’ compensation insurance. These protect you if someone is injured while working on your roof or if something happens to your property during the job.
2. Can You Provide References?
One of the best ways to judge how good a roofer is is to ask for references from previous customers. Whether they provide photos of completed work, names and numbers of recent customers you can call, or an address of a current project you can visit, a company that can provide positive references is a company you can trust.
3. What Warranty Do You Offer?
You wouldn’t buy a car without a warranty, so don’t pay for a new roof or repair without one, either. Manufacturer warranties, which cover the materials, don’t cover labor, so ask what the roofing company covers. Typically, the company will guarantee its work for a year. Whatever they offer, make sure to get it in writing.
If your roofer can answer these questions to your satisfaction, then you can rest assured that you’re working with professionals.
