Questions to Ask Your Roofer Before Making an Appointment

How do you choose your roofer? Most likely you have already called a roofer. You know the rains are coming and let’s be honest, in SoCal we don’t really consider roofing a high priority – until El Nino is forecast. So before you choose your roofer, what questions should you ask?

How long have you been in business? It’s always best to choose a company that has been around a while. This is something you can use to compare one company to another when making a final decision on which company to use.

Are you a licensed roofing company? You need to know this because in California, anyone hired to do more than $500 in contracting work, must have a valid California State Contractor’s License. And make sure it is up to date.

Do you carry general liability insurance? This covers your property in case something happens during the work like a window is broken or the house catches on fire while welding something on the roof. Make sure they have a certificate for your home specifically.

Does your company have workman’s comp insurance? If you hire a company that does not cover their employees with work comp then if a person is injured on your property you may find yourself with a lawsuit.

You can always call their insurance company to verify any insurance if you are concerned about the validity of their coverage.

What is your local phone number and address? With the threat of El Nino, there are likely to be out-of-town roofers here looking for work. It’s best to choose a local company so if something happens in the future they are easy to contact and willing to return.

What warranty comes with my roof? This is an easy question for them to answer. It will help you to understand why different roofing materials cost different prices.
