5 Big Questions To Ask Before Hiring a Roofing Contractor, Onalaska, Wisconsin

For a job like roof installation you’ll want a knowledgeable roofing contractor, but choosing which one is best for your job can be a chore. However, there are a few aspects to look at that say a lot about your contractor. Simplify the process with easy questions that help you gauge the reliability, knowledge, and professionalism of the roofer.

How To Choose a Quality Roofing Contractor

1. How much experience do they have?

Hands-on experience and knowledge are valued because it shows application. The more experienced a contractor is, the deeper their understanding of roofing will be. You can ask how much experience they have with your particular roofing type.

2. Do they have good references?

Ask if they have references, and check if you can see any of their previous jobs. When you contact references, ask them about what job was completed, how long it took, the affordability, the professionalism displayed, and how well the work has held up.

3. What sets them apart from other companies?

4. Are they insured?

All contractors should be insured and be able to show proof of this before beginning any work. This ensures that they’re able to pay for damages to your property in the event of an accident. Not only does this cover you, but it shows how invested the contractor is their customers’ experiences.

5. Who performs the work?

Contracting companies typically have either a permanent team or a rotation of subcontractors to complete the work. If they have subcontractors, you’ll need to speak with them directly to make sure they’re up to your standards and the job. In either case, ask if they’re currently working on a job and, if so, if you can stop by to watch them work, allowing you to see firsthand their process, work ethic, and professionalism.
