When you need to repair or replace a roof on your home or another property, it’s important to carefully consider which services you will hire. You should have several options, so it pays to take your time and assess each contractor. Let’s examine four things to consider when hiring a roofing company.
1. Who Would Do Work
You don’t want unsupervised and inexperienced roofers working on your rooftop. It’s always best to have someone with a lot of experience supervising the project to ensure better efficiency and work quality. According to This Old House, roofing companies in the United States employ an average of 3.2 people. That’s a fairly small crew, but it might be ideal for your roofing project because it makes it easier to learn who is doing the work and their respective qualifications.
2. Cost Estimate Breakdown
You should get a detailed cost estimate from different roof replacement services and closely compare them. The more detailed the cost estimate, the easier it is to see how your money would be spent. The estimates should include a breakdown of materials, equipment, and labor costs so that you can make a more informed decision on who will work on your roof.
3. Experience With Your Preferred Materials
Most people have asphalt shingles installed on their roofs, which is one of the most popular roofing materials. Is this the material you’re looking for? If so, you should make sure the roofing company you are considering is experienced at installing roofs with asphalt shingles. It’s safe to say most roofing companies have installed asphalt shingles, but they might lack the experience others have.
4. Bond Insurance Protection
You should check to be sure a roofing contractor has bond and insurance protection that has policy limits exceeding the combined cost of your home and belongings. A mishap might occur while the roofing project is underway and possibly cause damage. An accidental fire or another unforeseen problem might cause significant damage that a bond and commercial insurance would cover so that you do not suffer significant financial harm.
