Your Contractor Checklist

  1. Make sure the roofing contractor is licensed by your state.
  2. Check if they carry adequate roofing insurance.
  3. Check the roofer’s online reviews at sites like BBB, Angie’s List, GuildQuality, Google Local, or Yahoo Local.
  4. Request personal references.
  5. Ask who will do the actual work (do they have their own team or is there a subcontractor).
  6. Ask for a written estimate. It should detail the start/completion dates, materials to be used, workmanship guarantees, material guarantees and cleanup expectations.
  7. Check the length and types of warranty they provide.
  8. Find out how you can contact the roofing company, and who will be in charge of your repair or installation.

 

Contractor Hiring Tips

Consider Your Roofer’s Character

Do you feel comfortable with your potential roofer?

Ask Your Roofer Questions

You have your contractor checklist above; however, ask your roofer specific questions about previous projects. This is your chance to interview before hiring. Ask detailed questions like, “Tell me about your most rewarding project” and “What’s a mistake you’ve made in the past? What did you learn from it?” Consider their answers to these questions!

 

Contractor Professionalism

Note how your potential contractor responds to emails and phone calls. Were they on time for your consultation? Consider their professionalism! This is a great indication how how they will act during your project.
