Finding the right contractor for your home’s roofing project isn’t always an easy task. Because roofing is usually a big expense, you need to ensure you find and choose the best roofing contractor for the job. The problem is, you may not know what you need to look for or consider when you are hiring a roofing contractor.
If you are hiring a roofing contractor for the first time, you need to pay careful attention to the proposal they give you. The majority of homeowners opt to get bids from a few different contractors and then choose the one that meets their needs.
Some of the factors to look at carefully when you get roofing contractor proposals are found here.
The Materials Being Used
When you receive the roofing proposal, it should include the specific roofing materials that are going to be used. This should include everything from the material manufacturer to the shingle style, to the material’s grade. With this information, you’ll have the ability to compare several proposals and you’ll get an idea of the quality you can expect from each of the roofers you are considering using.
Timeframe and Scheduling
The roofing proposal you receive needs to include a detailed schedule of when everything is going to happen. Usually, a roofing job should not take too long; however, they can be inconvenient for anyone living in the home. This is why it is so important to know precisely when roofers are going to be there and how long it is going to take them to finish the job.
Any good roofing proposal will include an explanation of the possible liabilities, along with how the roofer’s insurance is going to cover the liabilities if an accident occurs. Make sure to look for this line in your proposal, as it is going to tell you what type of insurance the roofer has in place. If there is no mention of insurance, then you may be liable for any type of injury that takes place on your property. It’s also possible that the roof won’t meet the local compliance regulations.
Waste Removal Process
Regardless of the work that needs to be done, roofing is messy. There are shingles, nails, and other waste everywhere. As a result, it’s important to make sure that whoever you plan to hire has a plan to clean up the mess after the work is done. In your roofing proposal, the roofer should outline their clean up plan.
There are some roofers who use a big, square magnet to pick up the stray nails while others have a container brought to the site to handle the mess. Regardless of the clean up process, the key is to make sure a roofer offers this.
When it comes to your roof, making sure you hire the right contractor is crucial. Use the tips and information here to ensure this happens and ensure that you fully understand the roofing contractor proposals you receive.
