Hiring a Roofing Contractor Checklist

If it’s time to replace your old, ineffective roof, you’ve probably started searching for contractors in your area.

Otherwise, you could be spending much more on additional repairs.

If you’re wondering what to ask when hiring a contractor or what the red flags are when researching contractors, this checklist for hiring a roofing contractor will help you determine which roofers will do high-quality work at a fair price.

Why working with an experienced residential roofing contractor is so important:

No Leaks

The most important difference between an amateur roofing job and a professional residential roof installation is the integrity of the roof. Leaks are likely to happen if the roofing material is not secured properly and/or if the flashing that surrounds chimneys and vents is not properly in place. Even a little water seeping into your attic can cause severe problems over time.


Working with a local, trusted roofing contractor means that you have someone you can call in the event that you have a problem or question about your new roof or roof repair.

Used to Unusual Situations

One of the fiew givens in roofing is that no two roofs are exactly alike. That is especially true with older hoes, where time and weather may have caused the roof angles to be less than symmetrical and materials to have aged to failure. Our experienced residential roofing installers are up to these challenges. It’s nothing they haven’t seen before.
