When it comes to roof repair and replacement, you’ll need to choose your materials wisely so your new roof will effectively protect your home. To ensure your re-roofing project gets completed smoothly, you’ll need to choose the right contractor as well. Below are some questions you can ask your prospects to help you decide which one is perfect for your roofing project:
“Can You Provide a Copy of Your License?”
Most states require contractors to have a license issued by a state agency. When applying for the license, the roofer must demonstrate knowledge and adherence to building codes and proof of insurance. You can also verify their license online or by phone.
“What’s the Physical Address of Your Business?”
It may be a red flag if the contractor only provided a P.O. Box address. But if the contractor is working out of his home, this shouldn’t really be a problem; sometimes this is done to reduce overhead and keep the prices competitive. Of course, you’d want to check out the address for yourself and see if it’s well-kept. If it’s neat and professional, then you won’t have to worry about your roofing job.
“How Long Have You Been in Business?”
We recommend hiring a residential and commercial roofing company that has experience from installing countless roofs similar to yours. Preferably, they should be in the roofing business for at least 10 years, so you can be confident that they’re more than capable of handling your roofing job.
That said, our company is headed by our founder, Ed Klecka, who has been in the roofing business for more than 30 years! With decades of experience and a long list of professional certifications, we’re widely regarded as the best roofing company in the area.
“Do You Have Worker’s Compensation and Liability Insurance?”
If a worker unexpectedly falls on your roof and sustains an injury, your hired contractor should be able to cover the expenses through worker’s compensation. Liability insurance will also cover you if the roofing company damages your home or your property. This is useful especially if your homeowner’s insurance policy won’t pay in such cases.
