4 Questions That Separate Reliable Roofers From the Rest

4 Questions That Separate Reliable Roofers From the Rest

Finding a reliable roofer can be challenging. Although the industry is full of hardworking and honest professionals, some, unfortunately, are not. To help you separate good contractors from the bad, Krech Exteriors shares key questions you ought to ask:

1. What Is Your Physical Address?

A reputable roofer always uses a real, physical location. If the company can’t provide you anything other than a P.O. box, it’s a red flag. On the other hand, avoid choosing a contractor that’s headquartered in a faraway city. Local companies are familiar with the weather conditions you normally experience and have a sense of community. In any day, a “neighbor” is always more trustworthy than a “stranger”.

2. Are You Licensed?

The state requires all companies to secure a license to perform roofing work. This policy helps ensure your chosen contractor is aware of the latest building codes for your safety. You can verify your prospective roofer’s credentials in local or state licensing offices. Note that a business license is different from a roofing contractor license; the former doesn’t necessarily mean that the company is qualified as a roofer.

3. Are You Insured?

Any reputable roofing contractor carries adequate liability and workers’ compensation insurance. In case of injury or property damage, it will protect you against the rigors of litigation. Stories abound of unlicensed roofers leaving customers liable for an accident.

4. Do You Provide a Workmanship Warranty?

The manufacturer covers the products while the roofer covers the work. If the contractor doesn’t have its own guarantee, you might have to pay for any installation-related errors. Strong workmanship warranty coverage adds tremendous value for your money.
