Roof replacement isn’t exactly cheap so you only want to hire contractors with good workmanship. There are many ways you can make sure that you’re hiring a reliable roofer, including by looking at referrals and reviews, and most especially by asking questions.
Here are some questions you should ask a roofer and the responses you should look for to confirm they’re someone you should trust with your project.
Q: How long have you been in business?
A reliable roofer has lengthy experience and has encountered just about every roof issue. Consider a company that has been in business for more than 10 years.
Q: Is your crew trained? What training was given to them?
There are no specific requirements roofers need to have according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Most workers learn on the job. However, for specialized roof systems, the crew should undergo factory training from a major material manufacturer. If they are trained on the material of your choice, then that’s a plus.
Q: Do you provide a manufacturer’s warranty for your materials and a labor warranty?
A reliable roofing company offers warranties depending on the materials used for the roof. Labor warranty should last for at least a year so the roof has faced a full cycle of seasons. At Superior Roofing, we have a warranty that’s longer than what’s usually offered in the business.
Q: Will you check my roof structure for adequate vents and give me suggestions and an estimate on the required upgrades?
Properly venting the attic and spaces near the roof deck is important in maintaining a healthy home and a strong roof. Moisture and too much heat can damage the roof. The best time to add needed vents is during roof replacement.
