Questions to Ask Your Roof Contractor


INTRODUCTION The importance of a sturdy roof should not be underestimated. With the assistance of a roofing professional, a solid roof over your home will shelter you and your family from various weather conditions and other elements of the environment.


INTRODUCTION Whether for roof repairs or upgrades, an experienced roof contractor can help you with your specific roofing needs. Be prepared and ask the right questions to become more knowledgeable and make informed choices.


QUESTIONS The following are some important questions to ask your potential roof contractor prior to starting any roofing work: Q: What are your qualifications and experience? How long have you been in the industry? Ask to see their certification and to provide specific examples of their experience in the field. Companies who have been in business longer tend to be reputable and successful at what they do.


QUESTIONS Q: Who will be the main person of contact for this project? Who will be working on-site? Determine how the team is organized and get accurate contact information of the main person involved. Once you know who will be working on your project, you can ask further questions about the credentials of the specific individuals.


QUESTIONS Q: How long will this project take to complete? What will the work schedule look like? It is important to know how early your crew will start working and how late they will end each day. This will allow you to arrange your everyday routine around the work that’s happening at your home. An estimate of the completion date is also good to know – you don’t want the project to drag on for a long time.


QUESTIONS Q: What steps will you take for completing this project? The contractor should outline the different phases that will lead to the final result. Assess whether what has been described coincides with what you had in mind. You may also ask to provide pictures of a similar project to get an idea of what the end product will look like.


QUESTIONS Q: Does your company have insurance coverage? Qualified roofing companies should have insurance coverage – get a copy of the insurance certificate for your records. Ask about how much liability coverage they have.

Q: Does your company offer workmanship warranty? Remember that your roof is a big investment and knowing about workmanship warranties can save you money in the long-term. Inquire about how long the warranty lasts and what exactly is covered.


CONCLUSION Choosing a reputable roof contractor is essential for the accurate completion of any roofing projects you may have. Ask appropriate questions to determine whether they are the right fit for the job.
