Like most other parts of your home, the performance of your gutters and roofing depends on the quality of their installation. This is the main reason it’s vital to find a trustworthy contractor to handle all your remodeling and repair needs. The problem is, finding a good roofer is easier said than done.
A quick Internet search for roofers can easily yield thousands of results. Sorting out contractors and companies who are good from the rest can be an extremely daunting task. Luckily, there are a few questions you can ask prospective contractors to gauge how well they’ll be able to handle your project. Here are just a few of them as explained by our experienced roofers at Roofmasters Roofing and Sheet Metal Company, Inc.
Ask About Company Details
Unscrupulous roofing and gutter replacement contractors can easily be filtered out simply by doing your due diligence. Ask them about the name and address of the company. A business with no physical address might not be deal-breaking but it is a red flag. Check their history with the BBB and see if they have any records of bad practices and complaints. Lastly, ask to see all pertinent licensing and certification documents before you get into any contract.
Be Upfront About Pricing
Homeowners will often ask for an estimate and leave all discussions about costs at that. However, try asking specifically how much your roofer will charge per square foot. If they give you a direct answer, it could be a red flag. Roofing costs depend on a lot of things and even if two houses choose the same material, scale, size, installation, and other factors can all play a role.
Hash Out Estimate Processing
Good roofing contractors will often send some personnel over to size up the project and take all necessary measurements before they come up with an estimate. Observe how they do this and it can give you insight into how good they will become construction time.
