Top 3 Questions to Always Ask Local Roofing Companies
December 3, 2018
Finding a roof installation company should be as simple. But, a Google search is likely to return thousands of results, so how do you filter out which of these service providers you should hire?
First, narrow down the list of candidates by finding a contractor that’s local to your area. There’s a huge chance a few of them may be in the same town as you, but if there aren’t any, you can expand your search to cover neighboring communities as well. Once that’s done, the next step you can take is to start calling the names on your list to ask them a few questions.
Rapid Roofing discusses the top three questions you should always include in your discussion.
Are You a Licensed Roofing Contractor?
Ask your prospective roofers if they’re licensed in your area and if their license is up to date. Next, cover all the different insurance and warranties that they have, such as general liability, workman’s compensation and a general and service warranty. Learning these things can help protect you from any possible trouble in the future.
Where Are You Located?
A physical address should be a must for any contractor. If they don’t have one, they may not be legitimate. There are exceptions to this rule, of course, but as a general precaution, you want to avoid shady companies from the get-go.
Knowing your contractor’s physical address would also tell you whether they’re local or not. Out-of-town service providers will often have added fees that trusted local roofing companies won’t.
What Projects Have You Completed?
Asking for references and a list of completed projects can show you the kinds of services they provide. Additionally, it’s never a bad idea to pick a company with references from satisfied clientele.
