4 Tips When Choosing a Residential Roofing Contractor

A roof is one of the most important components of a custom home. It not only protects the structure, but it also protects the living environment, as well as the comfort of the occupants. When considering the construction of residential roofs it is essential to choose the right contractor.

4 Tips When Choosing a Residential Roofing Contractor

Let’s discuss four points to consider when choosing a contractor to for a residential roof.

1. Choose at least three local roofing contractors and obtain a written estimate from each contractor. Make sure the estimate includes not only a not to exceed cost, but the elements that make up the cost such as the amount of time it will take to perform the work and the materials to be used. There should also include a clause that notes what happens if the project is delayed and if there will an additional charge because of the delay.

2. It is important the contractor to build residential roofs carries the proper licensing and insurance. Hiring a contractor that holds the appropriate licensing assures the customer they have demonstrated their ability to perform the necessary tasks with expertise. Licensing also demonstrates the contractor knows the applicable laws required by the municipality and state. Insurance protects the roofing contractor and the customer in the event of an accident or property damage because of roofing activities.

3. Ask the roofing contractor to provide documentation of licensing and insurance. That information will most likely be included as part of the written estimate, but a reputable contractor will provide the information upon request.

4. It is important to ask for and check references for prior work. Ask former customer’s if they were satisfied with the work and if it was performed in a timely manner. Ask former customers if they would recommend the contractor to others.
