What Questions Should You Ask Before Hiring a Roofer?

As a Graysville resident, it's always best to choose a more local roofer. Roofing contractors who are familiar with your ZIP code, 35073 for example, will have a better judgment about what kinds of roofs your fellow homeowners have been happiest with.

This area is known for its hot summers and severe weather. This means that it's important to have a roof that performs well in the heat of summer and can protect you from high winds, hail storms, and flooding. At SteelShield Online, we partner with roof contractors who specialize in installing roofs all year round -- and we'll match you with the right roofing company in your location!

Before deciding on a contractor to put a roof over your house, here are 6 questions you should always ask them, so the work you receive holds up for a long, long time.

1. What material will be used for my new roof? (i.e., shingle roof, tile)

There are different kinds of roofing material you can choose for your roof. Which type of roof is best for you? It depends on your design preferences and the climate you live in.

  • Plywood shingles are an affordable and common option; however, they may not stand up well to extreme weather, and the re-roofing costs could ultimately add up.
  • Asphalt shingles are waterproof (excellent for resisting water damage), multi-layered, and effective at deflecting ultraviolet light. Asphalt shingle roofs pack a punch, and yet are also relatively lightweight.
  • Architectural shingles are among the strongest type of asphalt shingle roof. With advanced weather damage protection, they usually have a duration of 30 to 50 years, depending on the type...that's pretty much an entire generation! They do so while keeping the cost of materials relatively reasonable, and come highly recommended.
  • Tile roofing is among the most expensive of the roofing materials, but strong and long lasting. If you're willing to invest in your home's value and longevity, concrete tile may be the best option for you.

2. What is the roofing contractor's experience level in installing roofs of this type, and how many have they done in the last year or two?

This is a vital question. Regardless of the roof replacement costs that your roofing contractor quotes you, a contractor who has done many roofs of this type in the past is more likely to be highly qualified for your roof installation. When a contractor specializes in multiple types of roofing, you'll want to probe them to determine their degree of expertise in certain types of roofing.

If they have only installed a few roofs within the last year or two, one reason could be because there are other roofing professionals competing for your job, and they're trying to keep their options open by taking bids on multiple jobs. Hence, they may not be as committed to winning your contract.

When you choose a roofing specialist (not just a roofing generalist), you'll save the stress and heartache of a roof that doesn't last. SteelShield matches you only with roofers with known devotion to your desired type of roofing.

3. How long does it take to complete a job like mine?

Chances are, when you want protection, you want it as soon as possible. While you don't want a rushed job, timeliness is key when it comes to a great roof installation, because the sooner you have a new coat of protection on your home, the better.

An experienced Graysville or greater Birmingham roofing contractor will be able to give you an accurate estimate for how long it'll take them to complete your job - and they should also know what things may need some extra time or care when installing a roof, something they in turn should be transparent about with you.

4. Does your company offer any warranties on their work?

The best Birmingham roofers should offer a warranty on their work and the materials they use. This ensures that, if something does go wrong with your roof for any reason, you're in good hands when it comes to repairs or replacements - so long as you've taken care of maintenance items like regularly washing off dirt and debris, periodically checking for signs of wear or damage, etc.

The Birmingham roofing contractor you select should be able to provide either a warranty they offer themselves, or the manufacturer's warranty on materials. If your company doesn't have any sort of guarantee in place, find someone else who does.

5. Does your company provide a roof inspection report before I sign off on the final payment?

For your peace of mind, you want to know that the company's technicians have checked for any potential issues or hidden damage. Slight (yet major) oversights might take a second look before they're noticed. The quality of many roof repairs and installations isn't noticeable until time passes, because time is what tests its quality.

An inspection report should be included with Birmingham roof installations – and it will also include a final bill if there are no problems found. If not, ask about an audit before signing off on payment.

If they're not able to provide a roof inspection report, or if it doesn't include a final bill (or both), then the company might be trying to pull something over on you.

6. Will you use subcontractors for any part of the project?

When you employ the work of roofers who take great pride in craftsmanship and protection, it'll show in the finished product long-term. The use of subcontractors is a surefire way to cut corners.
