5 Questions to Ask When Hiring a Roofing Contractor, Honolulu, Hawaii

Planning to have a new roof installed? Before hiring a roofing contractor, it pays to ask a few questions. To help you find the right company, Honolulu’s Surface Shield Roofing Company explains what you should ask about.

What To Ask When Hiring A Roofing Contractor

1. Are You Licensed & Insured?

Most states require roofing contractors to have a license. This credential ensures they have the expertise to provide quality roof services. A licensed roofer also carries insurance, which protects the homeowner from any liability in case of injuries and accidental damage.

2. Which Roofing Products Are You Qualified To Install?

3. Do You Have References?

A reputable company will not hesitate to give you references. Ask the roofing contractor to list their last three clients or projects. Visit one of their job sites to give you an idea of their workmanship or consult previous customers about their experience.

4. Do You Offer Manufacturer & Contractor Warranties?

Manufacturers provide warranties for their roofing products, which usually cover defects and can last from 10 to 30 years. Roofing companies should offer an additional warranty for the work they do, so ask the contractor about the scope and length of their coverage.

5. What Is Your Range Of Work?

It’s good to hire a company that provides a variety of roof-related options and services. In addition to routine installations and repairs, some roofing contractors also specialize in waterproofing, energy-efficient solutions, and coating systems. If they offer preventive maintenance, take advantage of it to prolong the life of your roof.
