Questions You Should Ask Your Potential Roofer's References

When you’ve narrowed down your list of contractors whose work you admire and whose rates you can afford, it’s time to check their references. They could be prior clients or suppliers. You can learn more about your possible roofers’ capabilities by getting to know their knowledge and dependability. Here are some important questions you should ask your prospective roofer’s references. 


  1. Are your contractor’s license and insurance coverage up to date? You should only work with licensed and insured roofing contractors. Inquire with previous customers and suppliers to verify if your prospective roofer is licensed and insured, and if their documents are up to date. You can also authenticate this information with your state’s licensing board. Working with a licensed and insured siding installation contractor will protect you if something goes wrong throughout the course of your project.

  2. Are you satisfied with their work? Feel free to ask your prospective roofer’s past clients if they were pleased with the outcome of the work. Customers who are pleased with a roofer’s work are an indication that the company can assist you in meeting the objectives of your project. It may be a simple leaking roof repair or a big roof replacement project, a consistent client pleaser is a plus. There are numerous reasons why a contractor’s work may deteriorate from job to job. A one-time problem is understandable, but a recent tendency of disgruntled customers is a red flag.

  3. Are they polite and professional? Get information about the work habits and competency of your prospective roofing company by checking with its references. Inquire whether the contractor is simple to work with and respectful of customers. If you receive positive feedback from references, it may indicate that the roofers are dependable and trustworthy. If the references provide you with unfavorable feedback, you should look for another roofing and siding company.
