  • Do You Have Local References? References and testimonials help you determine the caliber of a roofing company. By interviewing previous customers, you will be able to learn about the contractor’s attitude, communication style and adherence to schedule. In addition, you can visit the local reference’s home and see first-hand how well the roofing company’s work holds up. We’d be happy to provide you with plenty of local references.

  • Do You Have a Roofing License? Ask your prospective roofer if they are licensed by the state to perform roofing services. Licensing requirements differ by state and some cities don’t even require them at all. Ask for proof of their license and check with your local licensing office to make sure it’s up to date and has no outstanding violations.

  • Do You Have Insurance? Your roofing company needs to have insurance to protect you in case an accident occurs during the project. You do not want to be liable if there is an accident on the job. A good roofing company will have adequate insurance for your protection. Make sure to double-check the information given to you by the contractor and to contact their insurance company as well.
