How To Choose a Roofer To Install a New Roof or For Roofing Repair Services in Roseville
Installing a new roof, repairing a damaged roof and roof maintenance requires the expertise and professionalism of qualified roofing contractors. We strongly recommend that homeowners hire a contractor to work on any roofing issues, instead of taking it on as a DIY (do-it-yourself) project, because working on a roof without the necessary training can be dangerous.
Before hiring a contractor, always do extensive research on the different contractors available in your area to determine who can deliver high-quality, reliable roofing services at a cost that fits your budget.
Choosing a Roofing Contractor
It might seem daunting at first when trying to decide the right roofing contractor for the job, whether it is a new roof installation, replacing broken shingles, repairing a damaged/leaky roof or replacing an existing roof with a completely new roof. But the process of picking a qualified contractor doesn’t have to be so complicated. Here are some questions you should ask before selecting a roofing contractor:
Is the contractor an authorized/certified installer or preferred partner?
Owens Certified contractors undergo a rigorous vetting process to ensure that they possess the necessary roofing expertise, financial stability and commitment to customer service to be listed on the official Owens Corning Roofing Contractor Network. These contractors adhere to high standards and meet strict safety requirements when on the job. Before hiring a roofing contractor, check to see if they are certified as certified or authorized contractors tend to be much more trustworthy to get the roof work done safely and properly than unauthorized contractors.
Does the contractor have the necessary licenses?
Always make sure that the roofing contractor you choose has all required state and local licenses, and that these licenses are up to date. License requirements differ from one state to the next so it is recommended that you know about the specific license requirements for your area.
Does the contractor have insurance?
There are two types of insurance you should ask a potential contractor about before hiring: workman’s compensation and general liability insurance. Workman’s compensation insurance covers employees of the roofing company. Should a contractor get injured on a job in your home, there is a possibility that you could be liable for medical expenses if the contractor is not insured. So check with the contractor to guarantee that their employees are covered. General liability insurance protects homeowners from accidental damages caused by the contractor while working on your home. Always ask the contractor about these two types of insurance before starting any roofing job.
Does the contractor offer your preferred roofing material?
There is a range of roofing materials available on the market. From asphalt to wood to slate, you have a variety of roofing material choices to choose from; each has their specific pros and cons. Make sure that the roofing contractor you hire offers your preferred choice of roofing material and has the necessary expertise to work with this material. Also, ask your contractor about the advantages and disadvantages of the roofing material you are considering.
Does the contractor comply with local building codes?
It is important that the contractor is familiar with all building codes and complies with them.
What is the contractor’s reputation when it comes to delivering high-quality roofing solutions?
Do your homework. Read reviews and ask around about the roofing contractor you are thinking about hiring for a roofing job. You can also request references from the contractor and ask to see their previous roofing installation or repair jobs before making a decision.
