If it’s time for a new roof, you want the right roof replacement contractor. You likely already figured out that in northern Virginia there are literally hundreds of roofing companies hoping for your business. However, not all are the same. Choose the wrong one and your roof may not last as long as it should, protect your home or it might not look great. Here are three tips to help you hire the right one.
Understand That Not All Roofers Are the Same
As you interview the roof replacement contractor don’t be afraid to ask observe and ask questions during their visit to your home. Think about how the appointment setting process went. Did they show up on time and looking professional? Does their vehicle look clean and have Virginia license plates? Some of the questions to ask include:
- Are you licensed?
- Do you carry both liability and workman’s compensation insurance?
- Will you send me the estimate in writing?
- What is your workmanship guarantee?
- Who will replace my roof; your employees or subcontractors?
- If your roof replacement is part of an insurance claim, ask that they accept all insurance claims and how they handle it.
You should ask any questions that you have for them as well.
Verify What They Tell You
When you receive the estimate or contract, make sure that the information you were led to believe is true by looking for their full name and address. Also make sure the estimate is detailed with the items you asked for including brand, color and style. You can also verify that they have any of the manufacturer endorsements they told you about such being a GAF Master Elite® roof replacement contractor. That will help ensure that you receive the full manufacturer’s warranty. It never hurts to check the Better Business Bureau (BBB) website as well because that tells you a great deal about the company in an unbiased fashion.
