Entrusting your roofing repairs to a contractor is a great choice. However, before you decide to jump into the process itself, you must get to know who you’re working with first. So, it’s important to ask your contractor the following questions.
1. Do You Offer Insurance?
A responsible contractor has both workmens’ compensation and liability insurance to protect homeowners in case an accident occurs. Workmens’ compensation insurance saves homeowners from paying medical bills and other costs when a worker sustains an injury while working. Meanwhile, liability insurance helps protect the homeowner from paying for the damage caused by the installers during repair or replacement.
2. What’s Your Company Name, and Where Are You Located?
Ask for the company’s full name and address. You should be wary of roof installation companies that can’t provide you with their physical location.
3. Did You Have a License?
Make sure that your roofing contractor has a license in your city or state. But before doing so, check whether your area requires a roofer’s license. You have to know that a business license is different from a roofing contractor’s license. The business license is commonly used for taxation and the identity of the company. Meanwhile, a roofing contractor license attests to the fact that its holder is qualified to work as a roofer.
4. Can I See Your References?
Asking for references can assure you that the contractor you’re planning to work with delivers quality services.
5. Do You Offer Warranties?
Ask for the length of the warranties. Most of the time, a roof warranty is serviceable for a year. However, some roofers offer longer warranties. You also need to note that the manufacturer provides a warranty for the materials while the roofing contractors cover the work. The two have separate warranties.
