What Things Should I Check Before Hiring a Roofing Company?

Fox 4 Problem Solvers did a story on a Kansas City area senior resident who gave a roofing contractor over $4000 to replace his roof. Soon afterward, the company shut its doors, and all the resident had to show for it was the leaky roof. Local roofing company Premier Roofing saw the story and decided to help out by doing the resident's roof free of charge.

In an effort to identify the most reputable and qualified roofing contractors, some people like to use a list of questions to ask each company they interview. Here are the 15 questions you should ask before any work is done on your home. Here is that list...

  1. How long have you been in business?

  2. Have you always operated under the same license & company name?

  3. Where is your office located and how long have you been at that location?

  4. How many trucks, crews and installers do you have?

  5. How many staff do you have dedicated to job site supervision? Do they have any responsibilities other than job site supervision?

  6. Do you have a staff person dedicated to Quality Control?

  7. Do you have a Customer Service Department? Who do I call if I have a problem?

  8. Are you a member of the Better Business Bureau?

  9. Do you have a written list of references?

  10. How many jobs have you done since your company began, and in the last 3-years?

  11. Will you complete a thorough inspection and analysis of my home improvement needs and provide recommendations regarding issues like products to be used, any potential areas of concerns, and a proposed schedule of completion?

  12. Do you have a Lien Waiver Letter?

  13. Do you have General Liability, Workers Compensation, and Post-Construction Insurance of at least $1,000,000? Will your insurance company issue me a certificate of insurance?

  14. Do you have a written list of standards that govern the performance and behavior of the crew on each job?

  15. Do you have a list of standards the crew will follow to clean up my yard both during and at the end of the project?

Additionally, always be wary if they ask for lump sum payments up front, companies that solicit door-to-door, and roofing companies that are chasing storms or that have not been in business for very long.

If you have answered most of the questions above to your satisfaction, then there is a good chance that you will be happy with the outcome of your roofing job, and you won't be left with thousands out-of-pocket and a roof that continues to leak.

Roofing Contractors Review? - The 10 Commandments of Hiring a Roofing Company

Many people try to do their own home repairs. It is easy to look at instructions and videos online and try to tackle a repair themselves. When it comes to roof repair and replacement, however, hiring a roofing professional is worth it.

A professional roofer has years of experience. No video can give you the knowledge the comes from years of training and practice. A professional roofer also knows about the materials and tools needed to get the job done correctly. Roofing is more complex that it initially seems and missing a small point can lead to problems later. An experienced roofer will also know where to look for the root of the problem, what caused the leak or damage in the first place. A professional roofing company will be licensed and insured. New roofs installed by a professional roofing company come with warranties. DIY projects can't get help for faulty work or materials.

Climbing up on a roof is dangerous work. Falls from roofs are a common occurrence. A professional roofer has been trained in the proper way to move materials to the rooftop and has all the safety equipment and experience needed to get the job done safely.

Repair or replacing a residential roof is a big job. It can take a professional roofing crew two or more days to finish a home. A DIY job will take much longer as it lacks the proper tools, equipment, know-how, and man power. A DIYer will need to look up instructions and refer to reference materials while a professional already knows how to get the task completed. Not only is getting it done quickly more convenient, but the roof is exposed during the process, which can result in further or developing problems.

Doing it yourself, as opposed to hiring a professional contractor doesn't save as much money as it might seem. Roofing companies can get materials at a discounted rate so they get better quality materials for the dollar. A DIY project will most likely require purchasing new tools. There are long term costs resulting from mistakes, improper materials and installation. Professionally roofed homes have fewer maintenance costs in the long run.

If there is a possibility you will be selling your home in coming years, hiring a qualified professional roofer adds value to your home. In addition to design and curb appeal, a home inspector will recognize a professionally installed roof. Warranties will transfer to the new owner and they will also have access to the information on the roof's materials and construction. These things give potential buyers peace of mind therefore making your home more desirable.

Before you climb onto your roof, consider all the benefits of hiring a professional roofing contractor to get the job done right.
