A roof installation is one of the biggest projects any homeowner will face. Because of this, it’s important to choose residential and commercial roofing contractors carefully to ensure that your investment is well taken care of. Unfortunately, finding a professional is sometimes easier said than done, and not for a lack of choices. In fact, it’s the sheer number of potential candidates that makes the decision that much more difficult.
You can filter through the long list of roofers by sticking to the ones who are local; that is, the ones who are closest to your home. After that, it’s all a matter of asking the right questions to find a good roofing contractor. Here are some questions that our experts at Arrowhead Roofing recommend asking potential roofers.
Do You Have a License?
In most local areas, residential and commercial roofers are often required to have a license before they can operate. Don’t hesitate to ask candidates about pertinent licenses and certifications to make sure you’re dealing with reputable professionals. In fact, ask to see their license for yourself before signing any contracts.
Are You Insured?
Even the most cautious roofer can still meet with an accident during construction, so it’s important that your contractors are covered by workers’ compensation insurance. Ask your roofer about their coverage before you begin the work. Some companies even carry liability insurance to further protect their clients from any untoward incidents.
Are You Bonded?
Another way roofing contractors can protect their clients is with surety bonds. Most places require roofers to be bonded before operating. This protects homeowners from situations where the contractor is unable to finish the work, the company fails to pay their subcontractors, the project is fined for lack of permits and other potential issues.
