You can ask your friends and neighbors for reliable recommendations on roofing contractors. Has anyone in your family had their roof replaced within the past few years? You can make a list, contact each person and ask them two questions. Was he satisfied with the job and would he hire that contractor again. Your experience with a company is the best way to get a true picture. You can also rely on your friends and family for honest feedback. Leads can be obtained from hardware stores and lumber yards, as well as people outside your immediate circle.
After you have found at least three roofers qualified, you can begin investigating each one. First, verify the contact information. Next, verify each one is insured. Check with your chamber or commerce to ensure that there aren't any red flags. Finally, look for contractor reviews sites.
Once you have narrowed down your options, invite prospective contractors to come visit your house and assess the job. Discuss roofing materials and the scope of the work. Make sure to also ask about the time frame and labor required to complete the job. The contractor should have a professional demeanor, be knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Although you are dealing with an expert in materials and methods, don't be afraid to participate in the decision making process. Ask lots of questions. Before he leaves, make sure you have a list of references. Then, check them.
A signed contract should be in place before work can begin. You should ensure that it covers liability and safety, as well as workers' compensation. You should also detail clean-up and payment methods as well as the schedule. You can request a lien waiver in order to protect yourself against any claims that might arise if the vendor fails to pay the roofer for materials.
It is not always the best option to go with the lowest bid. It is important to look at the estimates. More important than the estimates is your confidence in the roofer's ability and capability to do an exceptional job. You might be impressed by the quality of a company's work, but it is not the most affordable. Ask yourself: "How much peace-of-mind is worth to me?" Many homeowners find it very valuable.
