Choosing the Right Roofing Contractor

Asking the right questions is very important when selecting the right roofing contractor …

Sometimes roofing projects can sneak up by surprise. In those cases, when time is of the essence, the time spent on researching roofing contractors and their bids can be pretty exhausting. The biggest hurdle when choosing the roofer for, say, a rubber roof repair is comparing bids, to be sure the different contractors are specifically bidding on the same scope of work. A good way to make sure you are getting accurate comparable bids is to ask the right questions and require specifics on the written proposal prior to receiving the bid.

Questions to ask:

1. Is your company licensed, bonded, and insured to perform roofing work in the area?

2. Do you have customer references that i could speak with in the area?

3. Are you committed to ongoing professional install training? Give me some examples of your training practices.

4. Could i see some photos of roofing work you have done in the area?

5. Can you provide me with addresses of locations where you have performed roofing work?

6. What is the exact type of roofing system you are proposing and exactly how will it be installed?

7. What type of labor warranty are you offering? Can i see it on paper?

8. What type of Manufacturer warranty are you offering? Are you certified to offer special warranties through the manufacturer?

9. What is your current work load?

10. When can you get started?

11. How long will it take to complete this project?

12. Who is my point of contact while the job is in progress?

13. When do you expect payment?

14. Do i need to be home when the project is in progress?
