4 Things to Remember When Hiring a Roofing Contractor

Thinking of repairing or replacing your roofing? It’s important that you pick the right roofing contractor as any roofing project requires a big investment. But what makes a roofing contractor good, and how do you determine if you’ve found the right one? Read on as Garlock-French Corporation lists four things to remember when hiring a roofing contractor.

Roofing Contractor

1. Ask For Credentials and Certifications

When you’re screening for your prospective roofer, always remember to check if they’re licensed and have all the necessary paperwork. These are your proof that they’ll stick by their word and they can back up their claim on the services they offer.

It’s also a good idea to check their certifications.  We are GAF Master Elite™ roofing contractors, and we have access to GAF’s top-of-the-line roofing systems. Our title isn’t just for show either; only 2-3% of roofers in the US have this coveted title, so you can count on our skill and expertise.

2. Ask if They Do Gutters as Well

Many people consider the gutter system as just an optional addition to your roofing. In truth, it’s an integral component that protects your roofing and your home from water damage. Most of your roofing leaks can be traced to problems with your gutters, so it’s better to hire a roofing contractor who knows how to address gutters, too.

3. Ask Previous Customers

Don’t be content with the reference list your prospective contractors give you; it’s better for you to interview their previous clientele. Not only will you get an idea of how your potential roofer works, but you’ll also get an idea of how their finished product looks.

4. Do They Offer Complete Roofing Services?

Finally, make sure your prospective roofer offers complete services. Even though you’re just doing repair or replacement work, many things can pop up. It’s better that you hire a fully competent roofer that knows how to handle all kinds of roofing concerns than a roofer that’s only good at one thing.
