4 Questions to Ask Your Roofing Contractor

roofing contractor questionsAre you looking for a roofing contractor to repair or replace your home’s roof? It’s important to realize that not all contractors are equal. Don’t assume you can just hire the first one you see advertised online. Roof repair and replacement is a difficult job that requires an extensive set of skills not everyone possesses. Ensure your home will receive the absolutely best service by asking these four questions before hiring a roofing contractor.

Are you a licensed roofing contractor?

Generally, you shouldn’t hire a professional roofer who isn’t licensed. Requirements vary from state-to-state, so make sure you spend some time researching the regulations where you live. Once you’re familiar with the requirements, ensure the individual or company you’re considering for roof repairs meets your state’s requirements.

Do you have workman’s comp insurance for your employees?

The answer to this question needs to be ”Yes.” Some smaller companies with few workers will sometimes save money by not offering workman’s comp insurance. If an employee is hurt on your property, however, that will mean that you might be responsible for covering the resulting medical bills.

Do you have general liability insurance?

Workman’s comp insurance protects the employees working on your roof, while general liability insurance protects your home. Any roofing contractor you’re considering should absolutely have insurance to cover accidental damages.

Do you offer a warranty on your work and, if so, how long does it last?

Always inquire about the warranty on your new roof and repairs. If the company or individual contractor does not offer one, find someone else to work on your roof. If a warranty is available, ensure that it covers at least 25 years.
