Top Questions to Ask Your Roofing Company Before Hiring Them

Are you planning your roof replacement project? Before hiring your roofing company, you need to ask them certain questions first. You need to verify that you are working with a qualified company because mistakes during your roof installation can affect your new roof’s performance and life span. Empire Contractors LLC, the top general contractor in our area, explains more:

Roofing Company

  • Do You Have Insurance? - Your roofing contractor needs to have insurance to protect you from liability in case something unexpected happens during your roofing project. A reputable roofing company will have adequate insurance for your protection. Once you receive your contractor’s insurance information, make sure to double check it and contact their insurance company as well.

  • Do You Have Local References - References and testimonials are an excellent way to gauge a roofing company’s quality. Interview previous customers to find out about the contractor’s attitude during the project, their schedule adherence, communication style, and the way they conducted themselves during installation day. You also need to ask about the results of their project and about how their roof repair or installation holds up after several years.

  • Do You Provide Warranties? - Warranties are essential for any roofing project because they protect you from unnecessary costs. A warranty usually covers defects during manufacturing and mistakes during roof installation. It’s important to use the best warranty possible for your project. Fortunately, Empire Contractors LLC has manufacturer certifications, allowing us to offer some of the best warranties in the industry.
