Once you have narrowed your options for contractors, you should ask for proposals. You need to know what each contractor is offering in their services and what the entire cost would be. Moreover, the roofing materials used should be included in each of the proposal as well. This proposal should also tell you how and when you are to pay the company and how much time the company is going to take on this roofing project. It is highly important that the proposal includes in warranties as well. Any company that is legitimate would give you a proper written proposal. So, if a contractor isn’t willing to provide this, then you should remove that option from you list.
Insurance and Licensing
You should never hire someone that doesn’t have a license to practice the work they do. It would just mean that they are not qualified enough to do an efficient job. Moreover, they should be insured as well so that there is nothing to worry about in case of an accidental injury during work. Hence, don’t just ask your friend who’s an expert in these things to change your roof. Rely on a professional who holds a roofing license and is insured!
You should be aware of whether the roofing company or contractor offers emergency services to it customers. There are plenty of times when our roofs unexpectedly break down and we need to get them fixed as soon as possible. It would be a great help to you if you know that the company you usually rely on for roofing troubles can help you in time of an emergency as well. That is why you should always ask the contractor for it.
