Your roof's quality and service life are largely dependent on the caliber of its installation. A poorly installed roof can mean expensive repairs and early failure in the future, which means more money spent.
Before hiring a roofer, there are certain questions you should ask your candidates. West Side Roofing, one of the top roofing companies, suggests asking your potential contractors the following questions:
A business license and a roofing license are two different documents. The first one is for identification and tax purposes. It doesn't mean that the person or company is qualified to work as a roofer. So, it's important to ask your potential contractor if they have a roofing license. The requirements for this vary by state so be sure to verify whether a license is needed in your area. If it is, check the local licensing offices to ensure that your roofer's license doesn't have any outstanding violations.
All responsible roofing contractors should have updated workers' compensation and liability insurance. These two protect you and your investment in case of an accident. Workers' compensation is responsible for accidents involving injuries among company employees while the liability covers the damage caused by roofers during construction. Without these two, you would be responsible for all the costs associated with those problems.
To determine whether a contractor is right for your project or not, ask them for references or previous roofing work that you can see. Determine for yourself whether the quality of work is up to your standards, and choose the one that best satisfies your needs. You can also ask their clients if they were happy with the contractor.
