7 Questions You Should Ask Your Roofing Contractor

When it comes time to hire a roofing contractor at the Lake of the Ozarks you want to be sure to hire a reputable company that you know is going to do the job right. You may be wondering, how do I know what company to choose for a roof repair at the Lake of the Ozarks or a complete re-roof? The answer is to be sure to ask plenty of questions before you agree to the work they complete! Not sure what to ask? Consider at the bare minimum asking these questions below.

1. Do You Offer Free Estimates? 

Before getting a new roof, you're going to want an assessment of the roof's current condition. You're also going to want to know how much you are going to need to invest in a new roof for your home. Most reputable roofing companies at the Lake of the Ozarks will offer both free inspections and free estimates.

2. Are You Licensed and Insured? 

While the requirements may differ, every state requires that contractors be licensed. Ask the contractor to show you proof of licensing or check with your local government offices. Insurance is also extremely important in the contracting industry. You want to make sure they have both liability insurance and workers' compensation insurance. If a contractor is not properly insured, you as the homeowner could be held liable for medical expenses and lost wages.

3. How Long Have You Been in Business? 

The length of time a roofing company has been in business is not only an indication of experience but also of the businesses success. Your new roof is a big investment and you want to make sure you hire someone with experience and someone that's going to be around for a while if something happens to your new roof.

4. Can You Provide References? 

The best way to know that you've hired a reputable and trustworthy roofing contractor is to ask about others' experiences with the company. Ask if your contractor can provide any references for work they've done in the past. You can find a list of Above & Beyond Roofing's references on our website.

5. What Does the Installation Process Look Like? 

During a re-roof, your home becomes a construction site. You want to make sure you have an idea of what to expect before the job gets underway. Make sure you know what days and times the crew is going to be there, how long the job is expected to take, etc. You also want to know who to talk to if any issues arise during the installation process.

6. Do You Clean Up After Installation? 

Roofing can be a messy job. Make sure that the Lake of the Ozarks roofer you choose to do the work will clean up the site when they are finished installing your new roof. Ask if they will be bringing a container and where it will be placed. You don't want to be stuck with a pile of debris in your hard and have to pay extra to have it hauled away.

7. What is the Warranty for my New Roof? 

While the roofing material you purchase will have a manufacturer's warranty, you also want to ensure the roofer provides a warranty for workmanship. The manufacturer's warranty will only cover material defects and such, no installation issues, etc. Make sure your contractor will back up the work they do.
