Questions You Should Ask Your Roofer before Hiring Them
There may be many home improvement projects that need to be done over the years but one of the most significant and perhaps most expensive is having the roof repaired or replaced. Hiring a roofer requires more than simply firing up your search engine and taking the first result that comes your way. It would require some due diligence on your part.
Not only is it a good idea to check for any reviews that may be available on the roofer, it is also important to ask the right questions. You want to make sure that you are comfortable when you hire somebody to work on your property, especially if they are working on the roof. The fact that they are working safely is a priority and you want to ensure that they are leaving your property and your roof in the best condition possible.
The following questions can be asked of any roofer for you make the decision to hire them. It will let you know that you are using a reputable company that is able to handle the job professionally.
The first question you should ask is in regards to licensing and insurance. In most cases, it is necessary for them to be licensed in the state prior to the time when they work on your home. In addition, they should have insurance, including liability insurance and Workmen’s Comp. This would cover them while they are on your property, including their employees.
The next question may be more difficult, but it is one that is important consider. Most homeowners are interested in saving money but you should not cut corners that would end up costing you in the long run. If a roofer looks at your roof and tells you that they can simply install a new roof over the existing shingles, it may be time for you to look elsewhere. Ask them if they are going to remove the old roof and expect “yes” as an answer.
Other questions can center on how they will treat your property. Are they going to use ladder stabilizers to protect your gutters? Will they have a container on site for old material and where will they place it? A professional roofer will take care of your property as if it were their own.
Finally, make sure that the roofer is going to warranty the job and stand behind their work. If they answer the questions in the right way, you can feel confident in hiring them to do the job.
