When it comes to the quality of your home and keeping the people inside of it safe, you will want to work with a licensed and experienced company. Below are some important questions to ask before hiring a roofer. Doing research about a company can save you from getting scammed or losing valuable time. Doing research about local companies is worth the time when it comes to the integrity of your home.
Kanga Roof works with homeowners in Utah and provides only the highest quality materials and roofing repairs. An educated roofing company will be able to answer your questions with confidence. Below are some questions you should ask before hiring a roofer.
1- Do You Currently Hold A License?
Many states require roofing contractors to register with the state board of licensing contractors. This is fairly easy to do but being licensed and insured will protect you if something does go south with the roofing company. When asking this question, you can ask if they have insurance, or are bonded which can save you from legal nightmares.
2- What Warranties Do Your Manufacturers Have?
While your roofing company may offer its own warranties on its work, having warranties on the materials that they used is also essential. Material warranties will help protect them if they get damaged after the roofing company has completely renovated your roof. Weather damage, faulty products, or fading shades on shingles will only be covered if the company they purchased them from offers warranties on their products. Warranties are important questions to ask before hiring a roofer because this can save you a large chunk of money.
3- Can You Provide References?
Speaking with other homeowners about what companies they enjoyed working with can help make your decision easier. A company that cares about its work will be happy to share testimonials, reviews, and references with potential customers. If you can’t find reviews or references on their website, ask the owner or manager directly.
4- How Long Will It Take You To Complete My Project?
Any home project will interrupt your life and can take a large amount of time. Keeping a home project on schedule is important to love your home and your life. When working with a renovation company or roofing company, one of the questions to ask before hiring is if they can stay on track.
Completing a project on schedule can change depending on weather, supply shortages, and other factors but how the company handles these setbacks says a lot about them.
Ask your company how long it usually takes to complete the average project and how they will handle setbacks when it comes to the timeline. Each roof is unique so every project will look different, but working to stick to a schedule and contracted budget is important for any company.
5- Are You A Local Company?
Some companies will travel to other areas that have experienced severe weather or lots of homes that have seen roof damage and sell their services to vulnerable people. While not all of these companies are bad, many of them could scam you out of a lot of money if you are not careful.
This is on the list of questions to ask before hiring because A local company will often be family owned, support the local economy, and will often not come to you. While marketing your company is important, a true company will not be coming door to door trying to convince you they are legitimate.
6- How Will You Protect My Property?
During a remodeling project, there will be some mess, and abandoned materials, and may cause damage to other places around your home. Asking a company what measures they take to protect your property, home, or family is important before they invade their space. If a company is known for damaging lawns, gutters, and vehicles, or leaving a mess after the project is completed is a big red flag.
