Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Roofing Contractor
If it is time to get a new roof, or perform maintenance on an existing roof, you have a choice ahead of you: who should you hire to do the work? At Peak Roofing Systems, we understand that the choice of roofing contractor is important for the comfort, safety, and happiness of the customer. When choosing a contractor, be sure to ask yourself the following questions:
Does the Company Have a License?
Any company that does work on your house needs to have the correct business licenses for your region. Various online resources can be used to help you determine what the correct licenses, and the contractor should provide proof of the certification. In addition, ask for the tax identification number, and official contact information for the business.
Do They Have Insurance?
While it may not be required, it is a good idea to be sure that the contractor has insurance, including liability and worker’s compensation. In the event that a worker gets injured while working on your property, this will protect you from lawsuits.
Can They Provide References?
Any roofing contractor should be willing and able to provide references to satisfied customers. Nowadays, online reviews can substitute for references, and let you know that others have had a good experience with the company.
Do They Provide a Warranty on Their Services?
A roof is a big investment. If you are replacing your roof, you need to have the peace of mind of knowing that it is built to last, and that if something goes wrong, the company will fix it.
What is the Estimate for the Work?
The inspection the contractor gives you should include not only a price inspection, but also a schedule of when the work will take place. Be sure to find out what hours the workers will be at your house.
