It doesn’t matter how big your home is or what material you choose, installing a new roof can be quite an investment, so it’s important to work with a residential roofing company that performs quality work. At Advanced Roofing Solutions, we’ve helped many homeowners in the area select the best roof for them, and we wanted to share some insight here.
Below is a checklist to help you hire the best residential roofing company in your area!
- Ask for References
Perhaps one of the most important items on the checklist, asking for references from potential roofers will help you determine how they work when on the job. You can also search online for reviews and testimonials to get a better idea of their reputation.
- Ask for Proof of Licensing & Insurance
Another important thing to ask is whether a particular roofing contractor is licensed and insured to be performing such work. Doing so will make sure they don’t run afoul of local zoning authorities and also help protect you from being held liable should there be an on-the-job accident.
- Ask Whether or Not They’ll Remove Your Old Roof
In many cases, you’ll need to have your old roof removed before a residential roofing company can install another one. Be wary if they say that your roof looks good underneath and all it needs is another set of shingles. In most cases, it isn’t the truth and in some places, it’s not even legal to install a new roof atop an old one.
- Ask if They’ll Install a Metal Edge on Your Roof
Another important question to ask potential roofing contractors is whether or not they’ll also install edge or drip metal onto your roof. This metal is placed under the shingles at the edge of your roof to protect your soffit and fascia and make it easier for water to travel down your gutters.
