With the glowing promises made by several contractors, it can sometimes be hard to choose a roofer for your project. But by asking the right questions, you can get to know the businesses you’re dealing with and end up with the right contractor.
Here are a few questions to ask before hiring a roofer.
1. Are You Licensed and Insured?
This is the first qualification you need to ask your prospective roofer. Get their company name and business address, and verify any information they provide you. Make sure your contractor has liability insurance as well. This ensures protection for your property in case of damage caused by your roofer.
2. What Are You Going to Do to My Roof?
Make sure you’re aware of the job they will do on your roofing. Find out “what” exactly needs to be fixed and “why” it’s necessary. A professional roofer will have no problem letting you know about their process and the purpose of the solutions they’re recommending.
3. How Long Will the Job Take?
The time required for the job will affect your personal plans and your budget. That’s why it’s important to take a look at their timeline for your project. If it’s a simple repair, it shouldn’t take so long to finish. If you think your roofer is proposing an unreasonably long period to get the job done, find out why it’s not possible to accomplish it sooner. Contractors usually have their busy months so you might want to consider this when they give you their answer.
