Questions You Should Ask Before Hiring a Roofer

The roofing company you choose for your roof replacement project will have a great impact on your roof’s performance, life span and durability. You will need to carefully pre-screen your roofing contractor carefully if you want the best results for your project. In today’s article, Window World of Boston will discuss the questions you’ll need to ask your contractor before hiring them.

Can You Install New Shingles Over My Old Shingles?

The answer to this question should be no. We want you to ask this to help you remove contractors willing to cut corners from your list. Installing new shingles directly over old shingles is very bad for your roof. Contractors who are offering to do this just want to offer lower prices by providing you with bad service. Installing shingles on top of a roof that already has damage won’t change anything. The additional weight can also damage your house. Don’t hire contractors who are willing to do this.

Who Will Be On the Job Site?

A reputable roofing contractor typically has multiple roofing projects going on in a day. That’s why they have project managers to ensure that everything goes well. Ask this question to your prospective contractor to help gauge their competence and credibility. If they say that their workers don’t need any supervision or management, then it may indicate that they are not a good fit for your project. In addition, it’s also important for you to get to know the person who will oversee your roofing project.

Do You Need a Roof Estimator to Enter My Home?

A good roofing contractor will enter your home in order to provide you with an accurate roof estimate. The contractor will need to look at your walls, ceilings and attic space to figure out if there is a leak or an issue with your roofing system. Be wary of hiring a roofing contractor who claims that they’ll be able to provide you with an accurate estimate without having to send someone over to inspect your roof and home.
