Looking for the right contractor to hire for your next roofing project? The best way to sort through multiple roofers is to gauge the quality of their services based on feedback from their references. However, you need to ask the right questions if you want to get an accurate assessment. Here are some of the most important questions you should always ask.
Was the Contractor Polite?
You don’t want to hire a professional contractor that doesn’t act professionally. This is especially true when you’re working on a roofing project which involves a lot of time, resources, and stress. A polite contractor is easier to communicate with, which goes a long way in keeping the project running smoothly.
Did the Contractor Go Over Your Budget?
It’s common for contractors to go a bit over the initial budget due to unforeseen circumstances. However, you can use this to gauge roofing contractors based on their ability to properly estimate and bid on your project. If they’re off by a huge margin (more than 5-10% of the initial cost), it means the contractor might not be thorough enough when assessing situations, and you should go for a different contractor.
Are You Satisfied With the Service?
A contractor’s references have already shelled out a lot of cash to have their roofs fixed so they will be more than happy to tell you if they think they got their money’s worth by hiring the contractor. Whether it’s a standard inspection or a total roof replacement, a contractor meeting the client’s expectations is always a good sign.
Any Complaints About the Contractor?
It’s easy for references to say that a contractor did a good job with their roof. However, you should keep an ear out for any complaints about the service. This will help you set more realistic expectations for the roof repair or replacement contractor. Take note that this is not always a dealbreaker; you can use this info to ask the contractor later on about what they intend to do to address specific concerns before deciding to hire them.
