There are a lot of companies out there offering roofing services for clients in their area. This is why it can prove to be overwhelming for some homeowners to choose a contractor due to the vast amount of choices that are presented to them. Keep in mind that it’s important to work with a skilled contractor that you trust in so that you can get the most out of your investment. To help you, here are three important questions you can ask your prospective roofers to gauge their capabilities.
How Long Have You Been In Business?
It’s important to work with a contractor who has years of experience since this is a testament to the person’s experience. It’s a good idea to work with a contractor that has over 10 years of experience. It’s also helpful to work with a roofer who is adept in the specific type of roofing material or services that you need.
Are You a Licensed Roofing Company?
Remember that most states require roofing specialists to have a license before they can even offer their services. Your roofers should be able to provide proof that they are licensed and are familiar with the local building codes while complying with them. This shows that your prospective contractor adheres with the industry standards, which is a good sign for your project.
Do You Have Insurance?
Aside from being a licensed company, they must also have workers’ compensation insurance as well as a liability insurance. The workers’ compensation insurance provides coverage for the workers in case an untoward incident happens during the project. This removes the liability from you and places it on the roofing company. On the other hand, the liability insurance covers you in case they accidentally damage your property. This gives you peace of mind knowing that you’re covered during the duration of the project.
