5 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Roofer

Before signing a roofing contract to replace or repair your roof, ask potential contractors for this information.
Is your roof leaking? Are the shingles falling off? It might be time to get a new roof. But hiring a roofer shouldn’t be taken lightly. After all, they’ll be climbing a ladder to tear apart your shelter.

Highly rated roofing experts recommend asking the following questions to ensure you’re dealing with a scrupulous roofing contractor.

 

1. Do you have a local company office?
Advises against using a roofing company that works out of a truck. “There’s no guarantee you can find them if there’s a problem,” she says. “Having a place of business establishes that they are professional.” Check a roofer’s license plate to ensure they’re local before hiring.

2. Are you licensed, bonded and insured?
Recommend finding a company that is licensed, bonded and adequately insured to protect your investment. Licensing proves the company has the technical know-how to do your roofing job, insurance protects the homeowner from damage that may occur or injuries to workers, and the bond protects the consumer’s financial investment.

“Ask them to provide a copy of their state roofing license (if required in your area) and insurance certificate,”  You can also use the Angie’s List License Check tool to verify licensing or call the roofer’s insurance company to make sure they have coverage.”Get quotes from up to 3 pros!

3. Do you provide a roofing warranty?
Without a warranty, you’re left in the cold if your roof goes bad.
Be sure to ask your roofing contractor about a warranty and read your contract closely to be sure the agreed-upon warranty is included.

4. Can you provide homeowner references?
Ask for a list of references before allowing anyone in or on your home. Read Angie’s List reviews and follow through with the references to make sure their customers are happy with the job they received. Ask their customers if they encountered any problems.

5. Do you provide written estimates?
The written roofing proposal should be detailed “You want specifications, including the approximate start  date and payment procedures, Read through the proposal and ask questions if there’s anything you don’t understand.
