Getting to Know Your Roofer: 4 Questions to Ask

Finding a roofing contractor who will fit your needs isn’t as daunting as you might expect. You can just ask family and friends for local referrals, and once you have a few good names, narrow down your choices with a virtual interview. This gives you the opportunity to get to know your roofer better. Sully-Jones Roofing, the premier commercial roofing company in the area, shares which important questions to ask.

  1. Do you have the necessary credentials? First of all, the answer you should expect is “Yes”. Otherwise, you’ll just be wasting your time. Secondly, you should ask them to show you proof of these credentials, such as local or state licensing, bond and insurance, including workers’ compensation and liability coverage. The fact is that working with a roofer with the right paperwork helps protect you should anything go awry during the project.

  2. Can you give me an estimate? Commercial and residential roof replacement are a huge deal, and you’ll want to understand what kind of work, and how much of your budget, will go into the final price. This is where roof estimates come in, giving you a clear idea on the scope of your project and its costs. But your roof estimate should be written down, of course, and covers every aspect involved with the project. These may range from material and labor costs, estimated start and end date, warranty coverage, specific tasks and the person responsible for them and a termination clause.

  3. Which manufacturers do you represent? A good roofing company will have earned certifications from the leading brands. By working with one, you can get access to top-tier products and workmanship that adheres to quality specifications. What’s more, you get to benefit from the solid warranty coverage included with them. Sully-Jones Roofing has certifications from GAF®, CertainTeed®, Owens Corning®, IKO®, Malarkey® and many more.

  4. How long have you been in business? The last thing you want is to leave your roofing project to someone unreliable and inexperienced.
