It is essential for you to call a professional roofing company to fix any problems with your composite shingle roof. Due to the cost of replacing or fixing the roof, you want to ensure that you are in good hands. Here are four questions you must ask the roofing contractor before you sign the contract:
Are you going to remove the old roof?
Unless your composite shingle roof requires extensive repairs, it is not always important to remove it completely. However, if you are getting your roof replaced, then it becomes essential to remove the old one.
Why? For starters, the old roof will have a lot of problems which will continue to grow. Over time, they will also impact your new roof. As a result, you would have spent thousands of dollars, just to find out that you need to fix the new one.
How important is safety to you and your team members?
Even though professional roofing companies have the necessary licenses, permits, and insurance, you should make it a point to learn about their safety protocols. For example, the roofing contractor should go in detail about all the safety measures they use to keep their employees safe. If the roofing contractor takes good care of their employees, you can expect them to treat your roof the same way.
What type of payments do you accept?
By asking this type of question, you can identify if the roofing contractor is professional or a scam artist. If the contractor only accepts, it is highly likely that you may not seem him/her again. Also, you should ask the contractor whether you have to pay any amount up front, before the start of the project. A reputable roofing contractor will ask a maximum of 10% – 15% of the estimate. However, if you have to pay more than that, it is a huge red flag.
Will there be any changes to the estimate you quoted?
Every roofing contractor gives you an estimate of how much it will cost to fix your roof. However, due to unexpected obstacles or delays, the total cost of the project can go up. You can identify if a roofing contractor has a lot of experience in the industry by asking this question. A good roofing contractor will give you all the potential problems which can occur during installation.
