Roof Contractors

There will come a time when you need to investigate roof repairs Perth.  It might be due to a minor leak and slight damage or you might have a catastrophic issue that needs to be dealt with right away.  No matter what your roof repairs Perth situation is, you must take the time to ask a few specific questions to the roof contractor you are considering hiring. 

5 Questions to Ask a Roof Contractor

  • Do You Have a Roofing License?

Licensing requirements vary by area, but every roofing contractor should have a license for their business.  If they do not have one, they could be a fly by the night roofing contractor and in my experience, that is not the best option for your needs. 

  • Do You Have Insurance?

Every roofing contractor should have insurance to cover any accidents that happen to them or damage that they cause in the process of all your roof repairs Perth.  These types of insurance will be labeled liability and workman’s compensation and the paperwork should list which one is which. 

  • What Type of Warranty Do You Offer?

Every roofing contractor is different when it comes to the warranty they offer for all roof repairs Perth they do.  If new materials are used, like tiles or shingles, the manufacturer usually covers that warranty.  However, the roof contractor normally offers a warranty that covers their work for a specific amount of time.  The warranty is something that would raise a red flag to me if a roofing contractor did not offer it. 

  • Do You Have Any References?

When it comes to references, I am referring to people the roofing contractor has worked with in the past with roof repairs Perth.  Therefore, do not let them give you the names of people they know.  You basically want to talk to past customers to see if they were satisfied with the work and if they would hire them again in the future. 

  • How Long Have You Been in Business?

I normally recommend that people only hire roofing contractors that have been in business for a while.  It’s not that I have anything against the people just starting out in the business, but those that have worked in the industry for a while have much more knowledge when it comes to roof repairs Perth. 

These are five questions to ask a roof contractor when you need roof repairs Perth, however, you may think of others as you are talking to a few of them.  When I am meeting with homeowners, I always make sure they know the answers to these questions, even if they do not take the time to ask them, because I feel it is important to be transparent with the work that I do.  After all, I take pride in my work, and in my company, and I strive to keep all my customers happy at the end of any roof repairs Perth.
