How to choose a roofer:
6 questions to ask when you are looking for a roofing contractor
      1. How long have you been in business?
      2. Do you carry business liability insurance as well as disability insurance for your employees?
      3. Can you provide references?
      4. Do you guarantee your work?
      5. What type of materials do you use?
      6. How will you protect my landscape?

Why should you ask these questions?  Replacing your roof is a large investment.  You want to be sure you are choosing the best roofer in your area who will provide you both the quality and the value for your money.

Asking how long a company has been in business is important because it proves that they are established and they probably aren’t going anywhere.  You want to be able to pick up the phone a year from now and know they are going to be there.

Insurance is essential!  The roofing contractor you hire must have their own liability insurance and also insurance covering their employees.  If anything should happen to your property or any injuries occur, you want to know that the contractor has insurance to cover this.

It is always a good idea to get references.  Any legitimate roofing company will be happy to provide you with them.

You definitely want to find out what kind of guarantee or warranty the contractor offers.  Installing a roof system properly is more than just nailing on some shingles.  Ask about a guarantee.

Quality materials are desirable because a roof needs to last a long time.  A reputable roofer will be able to tell you about the quality of the materials they use.

The roofing contractor that you choose should have a plan for protecting your lawn and landscaping.  Removing an old roof is a messy business, and old shingles are heavy!  Ask how they will protect your bushes and gardens near the home.
