5 questions to ask when looking for a roofing contractor

Because your roof is an important structural component of your home, it is important to take good care of it. This is especially important given the often unpredictable weather in Queensland. It doesn’t matter if you need guttering repaired or your roof needs to be painted or maintained. Sometimes it can be difficult to choose the right person to help you with such an important decision. These are some questions to ask when looking for the right roofing contractor.

Are They Licensed?
Different skills are needed to install different roofs. Different regions of The United States require different licenses for roofing contractors. There are two types of general licenses: one for nominee supervisors and another for trade contractors. These licenses apply to anyone who works on roofing projects exceeding $3,000 and require that a roofing contractor has a roof tiling license and/or roof and wall cladding licensure.

It’s worth asking if the company you are looking for is a specialist in roof maintenance services. MBA membership gives businesses valuable insights and allows them contribute to the industry’s quality and innovation standards.

Are They able to provide insurance?

It can be costly to replace or repair a roof. This is why it is important to make an investment. Insurance for professional roofing contractors is essential. This protects you and your business and provides comprehensive coverage against any problems that might arise while working on your roof.

Public Liability Insurance is a form of insurance that every roofing contractor should have. It’s a vital part of any construction project.

Are They able to offer guarantees

Reputable roofing companies should provide written warranties on the work they do and products they use. A ten year workmanship warranty for every job is a good standard.

What are their credentials?

It’s important to verify that the company you are researching for roof replacement or maintenance companies has basic identifiers such as a website, email address and phone number.

It is also worthwhile to research the length of time your roofing contractor has been operating. This is a good indicator about their reliability. They have been in business for many years, or even 20 years. If they have been in business for many years, they will be well-established and have a lot of staff, and probably have served hundreds of satisfied clients.

Do They Offer A Comprehensive Quote?

It is important to have a detailed, non-binding quote. This will protect you and your contractor in case of an unexpected event. A written quote should contain a description of the work needed, the location where it will be done, the materials they will use, and the estimated completion date.

They should provide you with details about insurance, licensing, and details regarding any guarantees on products or workmanship. Terms of payment and other terms and conditions related to the job are also provided at this stage. You should be given an outline of the ‘next steps’ so you know when and what to do next.

What do their customers think?

Referrals are a great way to learn more about roofing companies and their services. Businesses will often post testimonials from satisfied customers on their websites. These testimonials include more details about the work done and the level of customer service received. You’ll often find images of the jobs they have completed and the final result.
