4 Questions to Ask a Potential Roofing Contractor

Your home is your greatest asset and you must trust the people you are working with! You don’t want to waste your time and money on door-to-door roofing contractors when your home and family are on the line. Ask these four main questions to start the conversation and from these, you will better understand the company and its focus. 

Are You Licensed, Bonded, and Insured?

This is the first question you must ask. If they do not provide proof, perhaps they are not the best company for you to put your trust in. What exactly are these three items? 

  • Licensed – In Pennsylvania, the law requires that all contractors register with the Attorney General’s Office and any local licensing requirements.
  • Bonded – This means the contractor is ethical and moral in holding up their end of the contract. 
  • Insured – This should include workman’s comp, general liability, and vehicle insurance. 

Ask the contractor for proof of each of these items.

How Long Have You Been a Local Company? 

This a two-part question. First of all, the locality is important. You want to be able to reach them if problems occur, or you have questions about the roofing process. Secondly, it is important to know the duration of the business. If they are new to the roofing industry, you may not get the quality and workmanship you are looking for.
