Replacing a roof is a major undertaking. With
your roof being such an important element of protecting your home, you want to
make sure you hire the right company for the job. Continue reading to learn
what factors you should consider when selecting a roofing company to replace
Prior to even having a roofing contractor
perform an inspection on your roof, you should make sure that they have the
proper licensing. This ensures that they are qualified to take care of your
home's roof. If you work with an unlicensed contractor, you can end up
violating your roof's warranty or be unable to hold them accountable if they
damage your roof.
To verify their licensing, you can request
their license number directly. With the license number, you will be able to go
to your state government's website and search for professional license
All contractors should have insurance to
protect themselves, their employees, and their business. By hiring a roofing
contractor that does not have insurance, you are risking being held liable for
any damage or injuries.
To check the roofing contractor's insurance,
you can request a certificate of insurance directly from the contractor. Be
sure to check that their insurance policy includes coverage for general
liability and workers' compensation.
If a roofing contractor is great at what they
do, you'll be able to tell by their customer reviews and testimonials. First,
ask your friends, family, and neighbors if they know anything about the roofing
company that you are considering working with. Then check the company's reviews
on Google, NextDoor, Angi's, and their own website. This will help you get a
better idea of their reputation and see if they are a good choice for your roof
No qualified and trustworthy contractor will
only give you a verbal cost estimate. At the end of an inspection, you should
receive a written estimate and the ability to ask any questions you have about
it. There also should not be any pressure to sign an estimate or contract with
the company. Any pressure from the contractor is a major red flag.
On Their Work
Any roofing contractor that provides quality
craftsmanship is more than willing to warranty their work and the materials
they use. The warranty allows you to contact them with any issues or concerns
that arise during the warranty period. The roofing contractor will then address
the issues the best way they can.
To check for their warranties, you can ask the
contractor for their warranty information or search their website.
