Homeowner’s Checklist in Selecting a Roofing Contractor
- Secure a written contract detailing all aspects of your roofing project, including material to be used, color, method of installation and total price of contract.
- Call on references from past customers. Any contractor can provide two or three; ask for many in your particular zip code.
- Call the material suppliers to verify the contractor’s financial standing; many contractors use the proceeds from your job to pay for the materials for past jobs. You don’t want to pay twice for your materials.
- Payment should be made upon completion of your roofing project. Beware of any company that asks for money up front. Some companies finance other projects with your money.
- When removing an existing roof, care should be taken to protect surrounding landscaping and debris should be cleaned up daily. Protect your landscaping by covering it, if possible.
- If you need to replace an air conditioning unit, add insulation to cathedral ceilings, or fumigate in accessible attic areas, now, with the roof off, is a good time to plan this.
