What You Might Forget to Ask During a Roofing Consultation

In addition to research, asking the right questions will help you find the right contractor for your roofing project. It will also help you ensure that the roofer you hire is reputable and skilled enough to complete the job efficiently the first time. 

In this post, one of the area’s top rated roofing companies, High Performance Homes, shares questions you shouldn’t forget to ask during your roofing consultation.

Are You Licensed and Insured?

Hiring a fully licensed and insured roofer will protect you and your home in case something goes wrong with your project. Research the code requirements in your area and only hire a company with a valid license. 

Make sure your prospective contractor has general liability and workers’ compensation insurance. General liability insurance covers any damage to your property. For instance, if a worker accidentally damages your exterior siding during a door installation, this insurance will cover expenses for repairing the affected area. Meanwhile, workers’ compensation will provide coverage for medical expenses if a worker has an accident during the job. 

Are You Going to Remove the Old Roof?

Some contractors may say that you can save costs by shingling over the old roof. However, unless the old roofing material is torn off, you won’t know if the structure underneath is in good shape. Not seeing these areas can cost you more in the future. 

Do You Have Plans if It Starts to Rain During the Project?

Ask your potential contractor what they’ll do in case it rains while installing your new roof. A reputable contractor always has plans for these kinds of situations. Roofers usually cover the roof with tarpaulins or plastic covers. They will help keep your roof and home dry during the rain.

For Cameron and everyone, again I say thank you! NW Natural has just recalculated our “equal pay” bill and we’ve gone from $67.00/month to $38.00/month. This is a savings of $348.00 per year plus the electric bill never once exceeded $90.00/month this summer saving us about $300 this year just is savings with the A/C. The windows remain beautiful, functional and more than everything promised! That and a leak free roof, who could ask for anything more! Thanks again!

“This contracting company recently replaced all the windows in my home. All of the associates I interacted with along the way were pleasant, knowledgeable, and professional. The way the windows were installed was done with precision and care for my home, and I did not have to pay any extra for trim around both the outside and inside of the windows. The end result is pleasing to look at, and I can already tell there’s a big difference in how insulated my home is.”
