4 Questions to Ask Your Roofing Contractor

If you don’t ask questions, you won’t always get answers. Find out some of the most important things you need to ask your roofing contractor before you sign on the dotted line and allow them to put a roof on your house.

Are you licensed and insured?

Professional roofing contractors are properly licensed and insured and have no trouble providing proof of this information should you request it. If you want to do research on your own, confirm the roofer’s place of business, phone number, business license, and tax ID number. All this information is an excellent gauge of experience and reliability.

It is also reasonable to ask for proof of your roofing contractor’s liability coverage and insurance. Should an accident occur on your property during roof installation, you want the roofer and company to be liable through their insurance, not you.

What is the warranty on my new roof?

There are material warranties and workmanship warranties and they will vary, as will the provisions that might void these assurances. Roof warranties are intended to protect your roof investment, but don’t assume they’re in place. Ask your roofing contractor what kind of warranty they offer and how long it lasts – they could be from one year to 10 years to a lifetime.

How do you protect my property during installation?

If you’ve seen anyone working on a roof, you know that some roofers throw materials down from above at an impressive clip. There can be shingles, nails, and other elements in the yard and on your driveway – a constant threat to feet and tires. But a professional roofing contractor does everything possible to protect your property, including lawn, landscaping, light fixtures, and more, using tarps, dumpsters, and a project foreman to keep the entire area clean and safe during installation and cleanup.

What is the project timeline?

A roofing project timeline will vary for every homeowner because it depends on the roofing contractor’s schedule, your desired installation date, and the size of your roof. You will know where you stand, though, when your contractor delivers a proposal for your project, which includes a complete timeline from start to finish – including approximate start and completion dates – as well as a description of the work to be performed.
