The success of your roofing project — whether it’s repair work or roof replacement — ultimately depends on the skill of your roofing contractor. It’s wise to be a bit wary about the contractor you hire; the roof, after all, is far from the most affordable structure to replace or repair, so don’t be afraid to ask questions.
In this post, Mascon Inc. shares the three questions you should always ask a roofing contractor before you hire them.
Are You Licensed and Insured?
This is the first question you should ask any potential roofing contractor, which will help you determine the legitimacy of the company you’re planning to work with. The roofer in question must have up-to-date license and insurance documentation. Liability insurance is especially vital, as it’s what protects your new investment from any damage that may sustained as a result of contractor negligence. Workers’ compensation insurance is also important to prevent you from being held responsible in the event a roofer is injured while working on your property.
As your residential and commercial roofing expert, Mascon Inc. always has an updated license and all the necessary roofing insurances so that you can have peace of mind when working with us.
What Are the Possible Hurdles During the Project?
Ask your prospective contractor about any potential hurdles that may be encountered during your roofing project. This question is less about being pessimistic, and more about ensuring the project is planned in a way that can help reduce the possibility of these problems occurring in the first place. Asking your contractor this question also allows you to determine if they’re competent enough to come up with a plan to overcome these challenges.
How Will I Communicate With You?
Finally, ask how you will communicate with them over the course of the project. Find out who will be your main point of contact, and when would be a good time to talk should you need to make any changes or ask for updates. It’s also a good idea to provide your prospective roofer with an email address as well as a phone number so they’ll have more than one way to reach you.
