Questions to Ask Before Signing a Roofing Contract

Imagine if you're a homeowner and you just experienced a heavy storm in your area. You were kept awake most of the night and heard the sheeting rain beating on your roof. The next morning, you noticed a new leak and a new brown circle on the upstairs bath ceiling. While walking to the mailbox, you saw a few fly-away shingles laying near the bushes against your house and your eyes were drawn to your sagging front porch roof. As you stared up to your roof top, you tried to remember the last time you had a roof inspection. Was it five or ten years ago?

Your roof is the most vital part of your home, providing security and protection from the outside elements. It is crucial that homeowners act quickly at the first sign of roof damage and reach out to a local roofing contractor to know if a roof repair or a roof replacement is needed.

But, how do you know who to choose when looking for a local roofing company?

Choosing the right contractor is critical and it is important to set up a meeting with the contractor to learn more about their experience, company and guarantees.

Here are a few questions to ask before signing a contract for a roof repair or replacement:

1. How much experience does the roofing company have?

A local, established roofer should have a list of previous customers or reviews to share with you. They should have an honest track record with satisfied customers, sharing their experiences with the company and their team. This will help you to know what to expect when using their services.

2. Is the roofing contractor licensed and insured?

When you’re choosing a roofing contractor to repair or replace your roof, you need to know that they have a valid license. This certifies that the roofing company follows all construction regulations and possess the necessary skills to do the job right. A roofing contractor should also have liability insurance, as well as workers compensation to cover any damage to the home, or any team members in the event of an accident during the job.

3. What type of services does the roofing contractor provide?

It is always best to pick a roofing company that offers a full range of services. This will help to cut down on costs and inconveniences by having to employ more contractors. It is also important to find out what type of building materials the roofing company uses. It is helpful to know the benefits of the building materials as well as determining the price estimate for the scope of work they’ll be doing. Ask the roofing contractor to go over the pricing details before signing any contract and have them show you exactly what work they will be doing.

4. What measures does the contractor take to protect your yard and home during the roof repair or roof replacement?

No one wants to be left with nails and debris cluttering their yard and driveway after the roof work is done. It is important to clarify what areas of your yard and home needs to be protected and what will happen if damage does occur. The roofing contractor is responsible for protecting your yard, landscaping, and property. They should have a plan to keep it clear and clean, throughout the roofing project. Ask them if they use any type of barrier to protect your property from falling roofing materials such as felt, shingles and other debris.
