When searching for a prospective contractor for your roofing project, you must ask the right questions. While asking about licenses, insurance, manufacturer certifications and products being offered are quite common, you must also consider asking lesser-known questions. The roofers’ answers to these queries will give you insight into how they carry out their services and a general idea of how the roofing process works.
“Who Will Be in Charge of the Project?”
Always remember that a roof replacement is a major home improvement project that involves a group of experienced installers supervised by the company manager or project manager. The company owner may also be present, especially if you are working with a family-owned company. Ask your prospective contractor who will be in charge of the project. This is important because he or she will be your point of contact throughout the roof replacement process.
“How Long Does It Take to Have My Roof Replaced?”
Roofing project timelines vary due to various factors like delays in securing permits, inclement weather and issues with product lead times. Experienced roofing contractors are well-versed when it comes to planning the projects they work on, making sure everything is on the right track. Unless these issues arise or unexpected structural problems are discovered, a typical roof replacement project can be completed in a matter of days or a few weeks.
“How Will I Receive My Estimate?”
It is not unusual for roofing contractors to provide estimates or quotations right after a consultation. Some even hand out a digital copy a few seconds after the meeting is finished, with the physical copy mailed to the customer’s address after a few days. Make sure the prospective contractor doesn’t just drop your estimate or quote to your mailbox. It should send one of its representatives to personally deliver it to you, giving you the chance to ask more questions about the project.
