A roofing project is a major investment, and a high-quality installation depends on working with an experienced, professional roofing contractor. When you know the right questions to ask, it helps you understand your roofing needs and choose the best contractor for the job. Below, the team at Guaranteed Roofing, located in Jenks, OK, discusses some important questions to ask before hiring a roofing contractor.
Questions to Ask When Hiring a Roofing Contractor
1. Can You Provide Proof of Insurance?
The roofing contractor you hire should have workers’ compensation insurance that covers the team if they are injured on the job. Without this type of insurance, an injured worker may sue you for the cost of medical bills, lost earnings, and other damages. The contractor should ideally have liability insurance as well, covering you if your home or property is damaged.
2. Do You Provide a Written Estimate?
Get a detailed cost estimate before you sign a contract. The estimate should include the cost to remove your existing roof, add a new one, and other associated expenses such as replacing rotten decking. It should also outline the scope of the project, list the approximate start and completion dates, and how the work will be paid for.
3. May I Have a List of References?
Learning about the projects the roofing contractor completed in your area helps you learn about the quality of their work. Get references from recent clients to accurately reflect what you can expect with the project. Contact the references to gather feedback and ask if they recommend using the contractor.
