Your roof is one of the most expensive parts of your home, so it is important to only work with the best contractor that you can find. As you are trying to decide which roofer to use, you should know what questions to ask them.
Here are five important questions you should ask your prospective roofing contractor:
- Are You Licensed and Insured?
In the state of Florida roofing contractors are required to have license. Always ask the contractor you’re potentially going to work with if they are a licensed roofer. You can even ask for their license number. Proper licensing and insurance go hand in hand. Insurance not only protects the crew but a licensed roofer with insurance means you will not be liable for any possible injuries that occur on your property during the job
2. Do You Have Testimonials/Reviews?
Being able to read about previous customers experiences is extremely valuable when it comes to picking the right roofing contractor. It is also a good way to learn more about the company that you’re planning to do work with. Don’t be afraid to ask them for a website or review site to read up on their company to get more insight on their practices and service.
3. How Many Years’ Experience Does Your Company Have?
While many may say experience doesn’t matter, it certainly does when roofing is involved. Choosing a roofer with many years under their belt vs. a roofer with only a few years of experience, means that they will be more equipped for almost any kind of roofing matter that may arise. From inspections to a total roof replacement, they will be more prepared. Experience is crucial.
4. What Is Your Payment Schedule?
Ask your potential roofer how they schedule out their payments. Many do a pay-as-you-go schedule, but this isn’t a universal set procedure with all roofers. Asking about the payment schedule will give you an idea of what to expect to pay at each milestone of the project. No surprises!
5. Do You Give a Warranty?
This may be a question that most homeowners may forget or not think to ask! Again, your roof is an investment for the long run so it is extremely important to know what their warranty program entails. Also, ask if the product you’ve selected comes with a warranty of its own as well. For instance, some manufacturers of tile offer a manufacturer warranty as well.
