If you’ve realized you need to repair or replace the roof on your Denver, CO home, you’ll want to find a reputable, local roofer to help you get the work done.
If you’ve never needed to hire a roofer before you may be wondering where to begin and what questions to ask potential contractors. For this blog post, we wanted to address some of the things you should ask a roofer before you commit to having work done.
How much experience do your roofers have?
A company that only works with experienced roofers will be far less likely to make mistakes than a company that hires novice employees. Ask the company about their hiring process and the types of things they look for in job candidates. You might also want to ask about the average tenure of their workers. Companies that have a lot of turnover may not do as good of a job as a company that has good employee retention.
Is your company licensed and insured?
This is the most important question you should ask before hiring a roofer in Denver. You should never, ever work with an unlicensed contractor. A reputable, licensed contractor will be happy to show their clients proof or license and insurance upon request.
Are you locally owned and operated?
When you work with a roofing company that’s locally owned, you’ll be more like to receive a greater level of customer service and customer care. Roofers that are local tend to treat their clients as if they are their neighbors, because in many cases, they are! Sure, you can always call a franchise, but some homeowners feel that national chains are more likely to treat them as “just another number” as opposed to a valued customer.
Do you provide a warranty on workmanship and materials?
The best roofers in Denver offer warranties on both materials and workmanship. The workmanship warranty is important, should problems arise in the future. Be sure to ask the contractor to provide you with detailed information about any and all warranties.
Will they provide you with a written estimate?
If Joe Smith roofer comes by to provide you with an estimate, but he’s unwilling to put anything in writing, this is a big red flag. A reputable Denver roofer will give all would-be clients a detailed written estimate that outlines all associated costs of a job.
