Advice From An Expert: Three Questions to Ask Your Roofing Contractor

When the time comes to find a roofing contractor for your roof repairs or replacement, you will want to do a lot of background work before making a final decision as to which one to hire. This includes meeting with and vetting multiple contractors so you receive multiple estimates for the project. As you meet with each contractor you should ask them all the same three questions. Asking the same questions of each contractor will help you make an informed decision. Here are three questions you should ask a roofing contractor so you get the best service possible for your project.

Question #1: What are the Factors That Go Into Your Pricing?

Replacing your entire roof is a large project for any homeowner. You want to know that you are getting an excellent product and superior work but at a good value. Keep in mind that going with the lowest bid might not always be in your best interest. The lowest bid could wind up costing you more in repairs if the job was shoddy and the materials used were inferior. Find out what the roofing contractor’s price includes. For example, does the price include any of the following:

  • Removing your old roof
  • Removing the debris from your property
  • Repairs and damage coverage
  • Materials used by the company

questions to ask your contractorQuestion #2: What Does the Contract Look Like?

Without a doubt, you need to ask the roofer what their contract looks like if you want to find out whether or not they are reputable. If the contractor you are speaking with refuses to show you a sample contract or says that contracts aren’t necessary, you need to run as quickly as possible. This is how many homeowners get backed into a corner of making a down payment and not having the contractor return. Read through the contract slowly and a couple of times in an effort to understand it. There should not be any confusing, complicated, or vague language in it. The contract should clearly list the price, the scope of the job, information on a warranty, the dates of the project and any contingencies that could occur.

Question #3: Can You Show Me Reviews of Your Company?

Another great question to ask a roofing contractor about the reviews of their company. When choosing a roofing contractor, you want to know that they come highly recommended from former and repeat clients. Reading reviews on the contractor’s website can help you make a decision as to which roofer to hire for your project. Aside from testimonials posted on the roofer’s website, you should also check their social media pages and other review websites dedicated to the construction industry.
