What to Know About Your Potential Roofing Contractor, Bayfield, Colorado

Decided to replace your roof? Making sure you’re happy with your investment in the long-term doesn’t start with choosing a material or color to suit the property, but with deciding on the roofing contractor who will complete the job. They should have the experience to deliver quality work and the credentials to match. The following are some key questions to ask candidates you’re considering.

3 Questions to Ask When Hiring a Roofing Contractor

1. Do They Have Insurance?

Roofing is a dangerous job, even for experienced contractors. Ask if they have workers’ compensation and liability insurance to protect both you and their staff from the financial consequences of an accident on your property. They should be able to provide you with proof of their coverage.

2. What Work Have They Done in the Past?

roofing contractorScope the internet for reviews from former customers, paying attention not only to the rating but also the specific points that these clients bring up—is this contractor timely, respectful, communicative? In addition, make sure they are up for the type of installation you are considering. For example, some roofers don’t install metal. Ask them for pictures of completed projects similar to yours.

3. Do They Offer a Warranty?

When purchasing a new roof, you want to have protection against faulty installation or products. This is why you should check whether a potential contractor and their chosen manufacturers carry warranties. Most warranties cover the roof for about one year, but each contractor will have their own policy. If a contractor does not have a warranty, it could be wise to consider another professional.
