At some point in your life as a homeowner, your home will need to undergo a roof replacement or repair. It is inevitably part of being a homeowner. It is certainly a big job and you will want a reliable roofing company that can deliver the best possible results. But before choosing a roofing company that is suitable for your needs, there are a few important questions that you will need to ask to help you narrow down your search.
Making sure that they follow the state's requirements is definitely important, but you also want to ensure that they will be around in the event of any unforeseen circumstances. To ensure that you are working with a reputable roofing company, you’ll want to make sure that they are licensed professionals, among other things.
In this blog, we will discuss the top five questions to ask before hiring a roofing company.
Although we’d want to believe that roofing contractors and companies are all qualified to do the job, this isn’t always the case. Therefore, don’t make any assumptions about whether they are licensed and/or insured. Be sure to ask for a copy of their license, as their license is indicative of their professionalism, experience, and training. Additionally, they should have the proper insurance that is applicable to the state of California (or whatever state your home is in).
While most roofing material manufacturers offer a warranty of their products, you should still ask if the roofing contractor offers a warranty on their own labor. For instance, some roofing materials may be warrantied for 20 years but the roofing contractor’s labor is only warrantied for a year, so be sure to keep that in mind. By asking for their warranty and making sure it is in your favor, you will be protecting your investment.
The longer a roofing company has been in business, the more experience they have, and that is a positive thing. The more experience, the better. You are better off hiring an established roofing company as opposed to an inexperienced or new contractor for your roofing project.
Be sure to do your research and check the Better Business Bureau’s (BBB) website, along with review websites of the company you are considering. There are many review websites available, such as Google My Business and Yelp.
Another question you will want to ask is what you can expect from the installation process. How soon will they be able to start the project? How long do they think it will take? You want a reliable and trustworthy team to work on your project, which will make the process stress-free for you.
