Roof installation and repairs are not cheap. It’s worthwhile because a good roof helps functionally, aesthetically, and gives your home more value. However, you need to do your due diligence before hiring a roofing contractor. This video explains the top questions you need to ask a roofer before you decide to hire them.
The first question you need to ask is where the roofing company’s office is located. For one, you need to make sure they are within a reasonable distance of your home so that you don’t get caught by unsurprised fuel and transportation fees. You can also go and see the physical property to get a feeling for how legitimate the business is.
The second thing you need to ask for is the roofing contractor’s license number. Most states require a roofer be accredited in order to do roofing work. You do not want to work with an unlicensed contractor. A real pro will have no problem giving you the number so that you can verify it with your local officials.
Similar to this, a legitimate roofer is always insured. This protects you and them from charges related to accidents that can happen during repairs and installation. For more information, check out the video in the link above.
