Hiring A Roofer – What To Consider?

If you want your roof repair project to be worth the investment, then you’ll need to find the right roofer who can get the job done properly. It can be an overwhelming task, but it helps knowing how to determine what works best for you. Read on as Sully-Jones Roofing shares a few essential questions you’ll need to ask to your prospective contractors:


1. Do They Have a Business License? – most states actually require contractors to get a license issued by their respective state agencies. Having this proves the contractor has the right knowledge and adherence to the local building codes, as well as proof of insurance. Most state licensing agencies also allow homeowners to quickly verify the contractor’s license through phone or online.

2. What Are Their References? – As you short-list your residential and commercial roofing contractors, make sure to check their references by looking them up on Google and The Better Business Bureau®. This helps narrow down your choices if you’re already satisfied with their answers to your inquiries. If possible, also ask the references whether they recommend using the same contractor, if the crew cleaned the work site thoroughly and if the final cost was the price quoted.

3. What’s the Physical Address of the Company? – If one of your potential roofing contractors just gave you a PO Box for their address, then that company may not have the proper business licenses to operate. But this isn’t always the case, since some contractors working out of a home would do this to reduce overhead costs and therefore keep competitive prices for homeowners.

Contractors that are “fussy” about neatness and detail are also likely to do a better roofing job than a careless one. So, it’s often worth driving by the business office or home of your potential contractors to see if their place is clean and well-kept.
