With these three simple questions, you’re able to learn everything you need to know about the roofing company of your choice. One brief conversation with a representative of the company will outline everything you need to know about them, allowing you to make an educated decision in no time. Here’s what you need to know
- What insurance coverage do you have?
Knowing what insurance your roofers have is absolutely imperative to your decision. The last thing you want is for your roofers to have a lapse in coverage, turning your home into a potential hazard. The representative from the company you’re speaking with will also have specific information, with the ability to provide proof of coverage prior to setting up an agreement. Roofing is a dangerous job; your company of choice needs insurance.
- Do you use subcontractors?
Just because the company has insurance doesn’t mean each worker has insurance. If your roofing company is subcontracting work to other companies, you need to ensure that they have insurance and follow the same guidelines outlined in our third question.
- How long is the warranty on my roof?
This one tells a lot all at once. When properly installed by manufacturer warranty specific information, your roof can last from ten to thirty plus years. However, if your company states that “The warranty won’t be valid” or “Doesn’t come with a warranty,” you are being misled. When done properly, you should have nothing to worry about regarding your roof life, or damages that occur as a result of improper components.
Why Is It Important to Ask These Questions?
While it’s not a common occurrence, you want to be certain that you’re not talking to a fraudulent company. When companies don’t carry the proper licensing or insurance, they’re a liability – they don’t deserve your business, and should not ethically be operating a company. Your peace of mind and the quality of your installation are the two ends of your decision to hire a roofing company. Without those in place, it’s a no-brainer: turn them away.
