The Seven Important Questions That You Should Ask When Hiring a Roofing Contractor for Your Project
All roofing companies are not equal. There is a lot of diversity within the industry, and the facts of the matter are that not all companies treat their customers as well as others do. At Heights Roofing in Greenville, South Carolina, we strive to always go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that our customers get the results that they want. However, we encourage our potential customers to look at all of their options. And some questions you should ask are listed below.
- Is this company local?
Research and determine if they have an office near you. It is much better to work with a local company than one out of your area.
- How is the company rated? Are the reviews good?
Don’t be afraid to inquire about a company’s past. We recommend that you ask if you can see a photo gallery of past customers to see work that has been done. We can honestly say that if they’re proud of their work, they’ll want to show it off. Heights Roofing professionals have decades of roofing experience. You should ask us about ti!
- How are the online reviews? Have you checked Facebook and Google reviews?
We strongly encourage you check out social media and Google reviews. A company that treats their customers right will have a positive social media presence.
- Are their warranties legit?
Make sure that your potential roofing contractor is “legit”, has the appropriate licenses and is insured. You don’t want to be liable for any problems.
- How does the company operate? Is it in-house or predominately outsourced to subcontractors?
This is an important part of a company. We think that it should be in-house for the most part. However, it’s up to you to decide. Ask your potential companies; it never hurts to know and consider.
- Do they have liability and other appropriate types of insurances?
This is especially important in cases of accidents. If work is done improperly and an accident happens, lawsuits could occur. Therefore, we highly recommend that you inquire about the status of the company’s insurance plans. It could end up affecting you, too.
- Do they clean up after themselves? Or are you responsible?
Not all companies clean up after themselves. Some consider it the responsibility of the customer to clean up any debris from the project. We recommend getting a company that handles the clean up so you don’t have to worry about it.
