➢ Find out how long the roofing contractor has been in business. When a company has an established business, it is more reliable and more likely to be there when you need them.
➢ Make sure that the roofing company is both insured and licensed. In that way you avoid contractors that aren’t experienced in the industry. Ask about particularly liability and worker’s compensation, to avoid all sorts of risk that a roofer without insurance coverage can leave you with.
➢ Ask the roofer for a list of references. If the roofing contractor is reputable, he will be more than happy to show you. Just remember that the list of course will consist of happy customers, and not those who were dissatisfied, since this isn’t in the best interest of the contractor. To find those, do your own online research.
➢ Find a roofer with good communication skills, that you can talk to about what you’re looking for and who will answer any questions you might have. Good communication is also essential in order for you to know where they are in the process. Through this, you will avoid misunderstandings and a result you may not be happy with.
➢ Hire a roofing contractor that offers you a guarantee. If any problems should occur with the installation or the materials, a written guarantee from the contractor is important to ensure that he will take care of the problem.
➢ Remember, companies are only as good as the workers that are employed. What skills or training is demanded of the workers and are workers provided with safety training programs? Workers that have been through safety training procedures is proven to have less accidents at their jobs.
➢ If old roofing materials needs to be removed, is the clean up then included in the overall cost? Some can be very punctual with cleaning up as they go, where others wait until they end, leaving your property looking messy.
➢ Lastly, always get a written contract with the scope of the project, the beginning and end dates, the materials used and a list of all cost.
