Exterior remodeling projects are often major projects that could either improve or impair the looks of your home. Roof replacements in particular account for more than 40% of your home’s appeal. All this considered, it makes sense that you would want to vet any roofing and siding contractor that wants to sign you up as a customer.
A good contractor is like a good barber. Once you’ve found one who knows how to make you look good, you’ll never have to look for another one again. Unfortunately, finding a good one can be a little challenging. Luckily, our experts at Home Pro Exteriors have formulated the following list of questions that can help you know if you’re dealing with a good roofing contractor.
Proof of Insurance
First, you want to determine if your prospective roof repair and replacement contractor are legitimate and trustworthy. Asking about the name of the company, its address and contact information, as well as its BBB rating and portfolio all go without saying. However, proof of insurance is often a definitive way to know you’re dealing with a decent roofer. Good contractors will not hesitate to answer this question, which could already tell you a lot about how they conduct their business.
Reroofing or Full Roof Replacements?
Next, ask questions about the project itself. A good roofing company will usually remove old shingles before installing a new layer. Nailing new shingles over your old roof, while not unheard of, can be a sign that your chosen roofer is cutting corners. Use your best judgment to know whether this is something you want for your own roofing project.
Ask for Their Presence
Big-name companies may have too many roof replacement projects on any given day for the owner to be personally present in your home. Regardless, there must always be a project manager who can make sure the job is done properly and on time. Don’t hesitate to ask your roofer about whether or not there will be a manager on site while your new roof is installed.
