8 Roofing Questions To Ask Before Hiring a Roofing Contractor

August 31, 2020

When you’re hiring a roofing contractor, it’s tempting to go with the first company you get in touch with. But unfortunately, not all roofing companies are created equal. The quality of work can vary drastically—and anyone who has had a bad experience with a roofer can attest to the fact that it’s well worth it to do your research before you settle on a roofing specialist.

So how do you find the right roofer for your needs? Here are a few roofing questions to ask to help you narrow down your options:

1. Do You Have Proof of Insurance?

The most reputable roofing contractors will have commercial liability insurance, which protects you, your home, and the roofing team in case of an accident while on the job.

2. How Long Have You Been in Business?

You probably wouldn’t want a brand new hairstylist chopping your locks or an inexperienced surgeon putting you under the knife. Likewise, it’s best to have an experienced roofer on the job.

3. Do You Offer a Warranty?

Not all roofing companies offer a warranty, so it’s important to make sure what you’re getting into ahead of time. Opt for a company that offers a generous warranty policy on their work.

4. What is Your Expertise?

Sure, you’re hiring a roofing contractor to fix your roof. But even within the scope of roofing, every company has their own area of expertise. Make sure you’re hiring someone who has a wealth of experience handling your roofing issues.

5. Do You Have Proof of License?

You should never hire a roofing specialist who isn’t willing to show their licensing—even if it’s not required by law in your state. Choose a roofer who has the right licensing to do the job.

6. How Much Experience Do Your Roofers Have?

Though a roofing company may have been in business for decades, the people working on your roof may not have as much experience. Make sure your specific roofers are well-trained and qualified to repair your roof.

7. Can I See Your References?

The best way to know if you can trust your roofer  is by checking out reviews from other homeowners. If you can’t find any reviews online, ask the company for a list of references before you hire them.

8. How Long Will It Take To Repair My Roof?

Time is of the essence, and some roofers will take far longer than others to do the same job. If you want to get an idea of how long the roofing company will be lingering around your home, just ask. The best roofing specialists will get the job done quickly and efficiently.
