Make sure your roofing contractor is legit by asking some simple questions.

As a homeowner you know the importance of picking the right roofing professionals to work on your property, but how do you choose between all the roofers out there? Choosing the wrong roofing company can end up costing you far more than you budgeted for. Why not protect your interests from the very beginning just by asking a few questions? Taking into account that roofing can be the most expensive home repair job that some homeowners will ever pay for, you owe it to yourself to choose the best roofer.  We covered the first six questions in our previous article, and here are some more essential questions to ask before you hire someone to do the job.

7. Who Will be Doing the Work at My House?

You have the right to know who will working on your roof. You should be able to find out these key details.

  • How many crew members there will most likely be?
  • Will it be always the same crew?
  • Who is the project manager?

You should never feel unsafe or uncomfortable with people working on your property

8. How Long Will the Job Take?

A major home improvement project such as roofing could possibly disrupt your life to a degree while the job is in progress. A professional roofer should be able to provide an accurate estimate for the following:

  • Once we enter into an agreement, when will the job start?
  • Once work begins, how long will the job take?

Naturally there are things the roofer can’t control, such as when a big storm hits right in the middle of your roofing job.

9. How Long Will My Roof Last?

One of the most important questions to ask is how long your roof is likely to last. Shingle roofs are the most prone to damage and though the shingles themselves have a warranty, most roofers can only cover the labor and installation for a few years. This is due to the nature of shingles. Metal roofs last give you much better value for your money and last just about forever.

10. What Kind of Guarantee do You Offer?

Be sure to get any guarantee or warranty in writing from the roofer you do business with. Four Seasons Roofing offers all of our clients our Four Seasons Shield of Protection. We stand behind the quality of our work and do all that we can to ensure our clients are satisfied.
