The most important thing to consider when looking for a roofer is the price. Your roofing company should offer a free estimate after looking at your roof, so call and schedule that first when looking at companies. You can also compare prices by seeking several roofers, looking online, or asking friends and neighbors.
While your roofer may not be able to give you an exact date, it would be good to have an estimate of how long he or she thinks the project will take to complete.
How will they take care of waste?: You want to make sure you and your roofer are on the same page about who is going to be taking care of the leftover materials. You don’t want to be stuck hauling trash and discarded roof parts from your home to the dumpster, so come to an agreement beforehand.
Is there any kind of warranty or deal?: Some roofing companies will offer warranties on replaced roofs or give you a deal on inspections and maintenance for a certain amount of time after your service is performed. This isn’t always the case, so make sure you ask so you aren’t left disappointed if something goes wrong and they aren’t there to fix it for you.
Insurance: You want to make sure you are working with a roofing company that is insured; meaning the company as a whole and the individual employees are covered by insurance. That way, in the unlikely event of an accident or injury, you won’t be responsible to pay for your roof and a medical bill.
Written statement: Most companies automatically give you a written statement, but you need to make sure you have one before the job is started. Your statement outlines the services performed, the amount you are expected to pay, and any special agreements you and your roofer have made.
Customer contacts: You may want to check into the reputation of your roofing company. You can usually ask for references or rely on the Internet for customer reviews.
