Your roof will need a replacement every 15 to 20 years. However, you may need to repair it during that period. This doesn’t happen routinely, so you may not have a qualified roofer on your contacts list you can call up. The YouTube video “3 Tips for Selecting the Right Roofer!” provides three tips for selecting the right roofer for your job. Hiring the right roofing contractor doesn’t have to feel like a challenge if you know what to look for.
Things To Ask Your Roofing Contractor
Start with a simple Google search if you need residential roof repair. Narrow your search to the top five candidates with the highest ratings that suit your budget. Select a date to meet with the contractors. You’ll need to ask a few questions before you hire your roofing contractor.
Ask the contractor if they are licensed and insured. Contractors should be licensed in the state that they work in. Insurance covers you and them against any liability insurance.
Next, ask the contractor if they can provide references and samples of their previous work. It should be similar to the job you plan to hire the contractor for. It’ll give you an idea of what to expect regarding the quality of their work. Find out if they offer a warranty on their work and how long that will last. Finally, find out if they use any roofing subcontracts, how they select them, and where they buy their materials.
