A roofing project, be it an extensive roof repair or a full roof replacement, isn’t a simple task to take on your own. If you want to maximize your budget but don’t want to feel overwhelmed, you need to work with a trusted professional who can get it done right the first time, But how do you find the right contractor for the job? Here are a few key questions to ask to learn more about them:
“How Long Will the Roofing Process Take?”
You’ll need to know the estimated timeline and completion of your roofing project so that you can plan your daily routine and work on your tasks around it. An estimated completion date can also help you determine how much you may need to spend on the labor fees. Of course, this will also depend on other factors such as the size of your roof and the type of material that you choose to install, and bigger roofs tend to take more time and labor to complete. However, if it’s only a repair job, it won’t take as long and costly as a full replacement job depending on the damage.
“Can You Show Me Your Roof Portfolio?”
When searching online for potential contractors, you’ll find that many have posted their previous roofing projects on their business page. However, it won’t hurt to ask about their portfolio when meeting them in person for additional insight. Not only will they show you their portfolio personally, but they can also even explain some of the previous roof replacement projects they worked on that are similar to your system! You can also check their website for client reviews for their positive feedback. Even if they have some negative feedback, seeing how they respond to them also gives an idea of how they work on their projects.
“Are You Operating Legally?”
This should be one of the main questions to ask when you meet with a roofing contractor for the first time. They should provide proof that they have a physical business address and that they’re operating legally in the area. Of course, the requirements will vary for each state, but they usually include the necessary business licenses to operate in the area as well as insurance, proper training, and certifications.
