At some point, if you own a home or business, chances are you are going to need to contemplate roof repairs or replacement.
When the time comes it is important that you have some relevant questions on hand to make sure you pick the right contractor for the job. Here are my top 5 picks:
QUESTION: ARE YOU INSURED?
Reliable roofing contractors should have a workers compensation and liability insurance that will protect their client from liabilities and expenses if there is an accident while the roofing project is in motion.
QUESTION: ARE YOU LICENSED?
A business permit allows a company to do business in your area. A contractor or roofer’s license certifies that one has passed the qualifications that let them offer and perform services related to roofing.
QUESTION: WHAT WARRANTIES DO YOU OFFER?
Warranties give you a guarantee that your roof will not fall apart after it was installed. Manufacturer warranties cover the roofing materials while labour warranties cover the work of the roofer.
QUESTION: CAN YOU INSTALL A NEW ROOF OVER THE EXISTING ONE?
Depending on the condition of your roofing, in some instances an experienced roofer can definitely install a new roof over the existing one. On the other hand, complete removal ensures the elimination of all old problems.
QUESTION: WILL YOU CLEAN UP AND TAKE CARE OF ALL THE DISCARDED MATERIALS?
A clean roofing job is very important and the proper disposal of discarded roofing materials is key to this. You need to work with a roofer that puts a high priority on cleanliness to make sure that you won’t have to deal with cleaning and disposal yourself later on.
