10 Questions You Need to Ask your Roofing Company

10 Questions You Need to Ask your Roofing Company
  • Do you have a licence?

This is the first question you should always ask. A license is valid proof of one’s expertise. Anybody can claim to be a roofer or a building contractor, and refusal to divulge means that they most probably do not have a license. 

  • Are you insured?

A contractor working on your roof without insurance with giving you more trouble in the event of injury during fieldwork. You don’t want to be responsible for unnecessary bills that result from injury. 

  • Do you offer a warranty?

Get the details regarding their guarantees for jobs before going ahead. While most roofing contractors will complete the job to a high quality, not all will. It’s important that if anything goes wrong, you are covered.

  • Can you provide me with a quote?

After inspecting your roof, you can expect a quote detailing the total costs, with a breakdown of the labour involved. Make sure that the quotation is transparent and that there are no hidden charges along the way. 

  • Are you hiring subcontractors?

With some roofing work, subcontractors are hired. Here at Thermolite, all our work is completed by our highly skilled and experienced professionals, with no subcontractors involved!

  • Do you have general liability insurance?

This certification is important when something happens during the roofing process, your roofers are the ones responsible for it. 

  • How long have you been in business?

We have been in the business for over 30 years, so rest assured that we are experts in the roofing industry. 

  • Will you protect my garden?

Installing a new roof can create a lot of mess. For any roofing project that Thermolite completes you can be sure that your garden will be fully protected during the installation process. 

  • Does your company have a physical address? 

It’s so important that you check any roofing company has a physical address and location. This is to ensure that if anything goes wrong then you can contact them if anything goes wrong. 

  • How long will this take?

It’s important that you always ask for the prospected timeline for a job – whether this is minor repairs or major roof replacement. If this question is avoided, then be sure to get an answer before the work takes place.
