When you’re looking for prospective roofing contractors who can take on your project, one of the first things to check is their license and insurance. It’s proof that they’re working legally in the state, and most contractors readily have it with them. They should also have general liability insurance and worker’s compensation so that you won’t be forced to shoulder the expenses in case your property gets damaged or someone gets injured while your roof construction is ongoing.
There are also other ways to find the right contractor for your roofing project. Lexington Blue® shares some tips to keep in mind:
Know Their Experience
Whether they’re newer contractors that have new workers or contractors who are already veterans in the home improvement industry, you need to know whether your prospects have the right experience for your job. Depending on the type of roofing you want to do on your home, some companies may not have the knowledge or experience to complete your project. There will even be companies who have been in the business for a long time but may not be familiar with newer types of roof constructions.
One way to determine their experience is to check out their previous projects and customer service reviews. This helps in knowing whether they have a good reputation in the industry. Don’t hire those who often do poor quality work, as they often don’t last long in the business. With a bit of research, you’ll find the right contractor for your roof replacement project!
Get a Detailed Estimate
Another way to help you choose the right contractor for your roofing project is by comparing estimates. Make sure to get them in writing so that you’ll have an idea of the overall expenses you need to spend. Part of your estimate should include removing your old roof to ensure a full replacement. You can also ask your contractor how they’ll remove your old roof; if they insist on doing an overlay to save money, that won’t help make your new roof more efficient later on. The extra weight from your old shingles can also strain your roofing structure and lead to sagging or even a collapse!
