One of the most common home improvement projects is roof replacement. Like any other project, roof replacement requires thorough planning and an expert’s hand. The last thing you want is to end up with a poor quality roof that could ruin your home.
When hiring a roofer for your project, you need to ask the following questions:
1. What is the timeline for the project?
You need to have a clear timeline for your roofing project; this goes beyond the start and end date. The timeline should give you an outline of the task and the schedule of the work, so you know the proper succession of the things to do for the entire project. This will serve as a benchmark, so you know if you’re behind the expected date of completion.
2. Who will be present on the work site?
This will depend on the roofing contractor and the capacity required for your project. In some cases, roofing companies have a lead contractor or carpenter who will oversee the work done on site, with subcontractors working on small tasks. Be sure to know who will be there during the project.
3. How do we communicate during the project?
Communication is important for the success of the project. You need to be updated at all times about the progress of your work. Ask your contractor their preferred form of communication, whether through phone or email.
4. Do you have any concerns about the project?
Contractors know what they’re doing, and it’s likely they know if they can handle the work or not. There will always be gray areas when it comes to roofing projects, so it’s best you be upfront about these to clear up any confusion.
