Whether you’re doing roof replacement or repair, it pays to be discerning when it comes to asking for professional help. The success of your project depends on how experienced the roofer is, so it’s important to ask the right questions when you’re “shopping” around.
Experts at Genesis Roofing list the four questions you should always ask your prospective roofing contractor.
1. Do You Have Insurance?
This is the first question you should always ask. The company you’ll be working with should have workman’s compensation and liability insurance as they protect you in the event of an accident. Liability insurance is especially important when you’re hiring a roofer for their roof repair services as this guards you against liabilities in case of damage done on your property. Genesis Roofers is proud to have both license and insurance, giving you peace of mind when you work with us.
2. Do You Have any Certifications?
This is another important question that most homeowners fail to ask. Working with a certified roofer means you’ll be working with someone recognized for their standards and will stand by the work they do. Additionally, certified roofers will always use the highest-quality materials for your project.
We’re one of the few GAF Master Elite® roofing contractors in Iowa. This gives us access to GAF’s selection of triple-A roofing materials backed by strong roofing warranties.
3. May I See Homeowner References?
Ask for homeowner references and check their previous roofing work. You can go a step further and contact old customers in your community to interview them about their experience with your prospective contractor.
4. Do You Do Any Other Roofing Work?
Finally, always ask if they do other services other than roofing. This information might come in handy in the future. Genesis Roofing is a roofing contractor that also offers installation of seamless gutters and skylights.
