With so many roofers operating in the industry, you have to rely on your interviewing skills to separate the good from the bad. Considering the magnitude of the job and the amount of the money that will change hands, you can’t afford to hire the wrong contractor.
Be it for a roof repair or replacement project, ask your prospective roofing company these question:
Where Is Your Physical Location?
Learning about the actual address of your roofer accomplishes many things. One, it tells you whether your prospective contractor legitimately operates. Two, it gives you peace of mind knowing where you can find the crew when something goes wrong. Three, it guarantees that you are working with a local company.
If the other party can only give you a P.O. box or an address in an unfamiliar zip code, take your business elsewhere.
What Are Your Credentials?
It’s imperative to hire a licensed, insured and certified roofing contractor. Any company you can’t describe with any of the aforementioned adjectives should raise some red flags.
When the other party claims to have a valid license, adequate insurance and an advanced certification, though, don’t take its word for it. Exercise your due diligence, and ask for verifiable proof. Reliable roofers wouldn’t hesitate to provide documents that can validate their credentials.
What Is Your Communication Strategy?
Clear communication is always key to home improvement success. Although roofing projects only take days to complete, staying on the same page with the contractor is necessary to keep them on schedule.
Agree on the most convenient mode of communication for both parties. This way, one can reach the other more easily when there are concerns. Also, discuss progress reports at a predetermined time to avoid misunderstandings.
