As you plan your roof replacement project, you’ll be going through many details that you need to consider. It can be exciting in some ways, but also overwhelming. And since it’s a big investment, you need to work with the right roofer for the job. This is why you should do your research when looking for local contractors.
When approaching your prospective roofers in person, you must ask the right questions.
“How Long Will the Roof Replacement Take?”
By knowing the timeline and the estimated completion date, you can plan and work around the project. How long it will take depends on several factors, such as the material you choose, the size of your roof and even the weather conditions. It may take just a few hours for most homes, but if your roof is bigger in terms of area, it may take over a day or two.
“Do You Have a Business Permit and Insurance?”
Don’t forget to ask this when meeting with a roofer you’re keen on hiring for the first time. The requirements for operating a roofing business will vary for each state, but most will usually include proper licenses and certifications. Not all roofers are whom they claim they are online, so make sure to ask for proof that they’re operating legally so that you won’t have problems with your roof later on in its lifespan.
As for insurance, they should carry at least two types: workers’ compensation and liability insurance. The latter provides coverage in case your property gets damaged during the project while the former covers for the medical expenses accrued as a result of a worker’s injury while on the job.
“What’s Your Customer Feedback?”
You probably already checked the roofer’s website and read the comments and testimonials before meeting the team in person. But it doesn’t hurt to ask this directly, as they often have a resource on-hand to check their reviews. They may even drive you to nearby locations of their previous roofing jobs so you can see their workmanship firsthand!
