Questions To Ask Roofing Companies When You Need A Roof Replacement

Questions To Ask Roofing Companies When You Need A Roof Replacement

Is your roof old? Sagging? Shingles coming off? Your roof not only keeps the elements out of your home, but it also helps to regulate temperature, keep out pests, and direct water away from the house. If your roof is no longer performing how it is supposed to, it may be time for a roof replacement. Before you get your roof replaced, you first need to decide which roofing company to hire for this important task. You need to feel completely confident in the roofing company you choose before you sign anything with them so that you know your results will be durable and well assembled without issue. While searching for the right roofing company to replace your roof, ask any potential candidates these questions.

Ask Roofing Companies:

What Is The Warranty Policy?
Many roofing companies offer a 10-year warranty on their new roofs, which is generally considered the standard. Companies that offer warranties for longer than this are very confident in their work and can help to relieve the financial worry of homeowners, especially those who don’t plan on selling their home soon. If a company doesn’t offer a warranty or only offers a short one, it can be a sign of a lack of confidence in their work.

Are You Properly Insured?
Roofing companies need to have workers' compensation and liability insurance in place for their workers. These protect the homeowner from potential costs if a worker is injured on the job on your property or if there is accidental damage to your home. Workers' compensation and liability insurance will give you, the homeowner, legal protection from incidents such as these. It also ensures that you are working with a legitimate company that has the well-being of its employees and the satisfaction of its customers as its top priorities.

Is The Business Licensed?
This may seem like a no-brainer, but there are roofers out there who may not be licensed. Independent roofers aren’t always registered as a business and this can cause legal issues for you as the customer. To make sure any roofing companies you are considering are properly licensed, ask for their tax identification number, a business address, and a business website to check their credibility.

Do I Need A Full Roof Replacement Or Just A Roof Repair?
Before you commit to a full roof replacement, discuss your concerns with a roofing specialist from each of the roofing companies you are considering. This discussion can take place during a roof assessment, which some roofing companies will charge for and others offer for free. You can give a preliminary look on your own for signs that you need to replace your roof, but an expert will be able to confirm this for you. They can also give their opinion if it’s more economical to repair it for now and wait several years for a full roof replacement, or if it would be more cost-effective to do a full replacement now. Asking about repairs versus replacements will let you know the state of your roof while also giving roofing companies a chance to show you their roofing knowledge or lack thereof.

What Are My Roofing Options?
Not all roofing involves asphalt shingles, although this is the most common kind. If you are interested in exploring other materials or other types of shingles, discuss this with the roofing companies. They can tell you what options are available and which of those they can install. It also helps to do your own research so you can know if they leave anything off the list that might interest you. Read Know Your Roofing Options to start looking at what kind of roofing you might like on your home. Roofing companies can help you choose the best type of roofing for the climate you live in, the style of your home, and the angle of your roof.
