The Best Questions To Ask Before Hiring A Roofer

Roof replacements require good attention to detail and the right equipment and expertise. You want to find a licensed, insured and certified roofer to install your new shingles. 

To find the best roofer, here are some questions to ask your prospective contractors.


What’s Your Company Name and Physical Address?

Make sure the contractor has a physical address near your area. Fly-by-night roofers have addresses outside of town or none at all. Local roofers are easier to find when you need them. They can give you peace of mind because you can reach them and hire them anytime.

How Long Have You Been in Business?

Roofers who have been operating for several years usually have a good reputation. Experienced roofers have the trust of local homeowners; that’s why they’ve managed to stay in business for years. With established roofing businesses, you can be sure they won’t suddenly disappear.

Do You Provide Written Estimates?

Roofers should provide written estimates, including the cost of materials, labor and other fees. A written estimate breaks down all the costs before the project starts, helping you avoid hidden fees that can catch you off-guard.

What Roofing Materials Do You Specialize in Installing?

Roofers specialize in various roofing materials. Some types of roofing systems require specialized skills, so you must ask the contractors if they’re experienced in the material you want to install.

What Is Your Roof Replacement Process?

Professional roofers can tell you the roof installation process in a simple yet detailed way. This is important because it allows you to set reasonable expectations for the project.
