Getting residential roofing done is a labor-intensive job that is an investment. This is why it’s essential you hire a residential roofing contractor who knows what they are doing. Before hiring a contractor, you should ask some important questions. Avoiding these questions can lead to bigger problems down the road, ultimately resulting in having to do the job over again. If you are looking for a great residential roofing contractor in Plano TX, contact the experts at Concord Roofing.
1. Do They Have Insurance?
Any professional roofing contractor should have their own insurance which includes liabilities insurance and workers’ compensation. Workers compensation protects you, the homeowner, so that if the roofing contractor hurts themselves on your property, you won’t be held responsible. Liability insurance ensures you will be protected if the roofers do damage to your property. You can’t count on homeowners insurance to cover you. So only work with a residential roofing contractor that is insured.
2. Do They Use Subcontractors?
Some roofing companies will hire out subcontractors to do their work. You should ask if they plan to use subcontractors at any point during the job. If they do, you should ask the roofing subcontractors if they are insured. You should also ask them the other questions that we have listed in this article. If they aren’t able to answer these questions, we suggest you hire another residential roofing contractor.
3. Do They Have a Roofing Contractor License?
The licensing requirements will vary from state to state, for doing roofing contracting. So check your city and/or state’s requirements for licensing. If your city and/or state require that the roofer be licensed, ask the roofing contractor if they are. You also should confirm with the local licensing offices to see if their license is up to date, and make sure there are no other outstanding violations.
4. Do They Have References?
There is no better way for a company to prove their reputation than by providing references. While you can read testimonials, you should also ask about residential roofing job sites that you can visit, so you can see their work. Of course, speaking to homeowners directly is always good because you can really go into detail about the work performed. If the roofing contractor you’re considering can’t provide references, you should hire someone else.
5. Do They Provide a Warranty?
One of the most important questions you should ask a residential roofing contractor is how long the roofing work is guaranteed. Many residential roofing contractors offer warranties on their work. Typically, they will last up to a year. But some may last longer. Here at Concord Roofing and Construction, we offer warranties on all of our work. The length of time depends upon the scope of work.
