The problem is that many options exist, and it can be tough to find the right fit. Not to mention, you need to be sure they’re trustworthy, professional, and experienced.

Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Roof Repair Company

But we’re here today to help you do just that. This post will cover some important questions to ask a roof repair company. If you ask these questions ahead of time, you’ll have the information you need to choose a reliable company that will get the job done right.

How will the job site look at the end of each day?

How the job site will look is an important question to ask a roof repair company for a few reasons. While not every roof repair project takes more than a day, many do. If there is a multi-day repair on your roof, you want to know that the surrounding area will be kept as clean as possible.

Cleanliness is essential not only because of appearances but also of safety. For example, if you have children or pets using your yard, you’ll undoubtedly want to know the area will be clear of debris as much as possible. Not to mention, your neighbours will appreciate a tidy job site too!

    How long has your roof repair company been in business?

    Just because a roof repair company is new doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t do a good job. Regardless, if you can choose a more experienced company, chances are better that the job will be done right! So, before going with the cheapest option, consider how long they’ve been in business and if this could be why their costs are so low.

    What kind of guarantees do you offer?

    You’ll also want to find out what kind of guarantees come with the work from a roof repair company. Most companies should be eager to offer a comprehensive guarantee if they trust their services’ quality.

    Curious about the guarantees we offer? They include a 10-year guarantee on our workmanship as well as IKO’s more extensive warranty.

    Do you have references I can speak to?

    Just like your roof repair company should be eager to provide a guarantee for their work, they should also be keen to provide references. Be sure to follow up with these references. Ask questions about the quality of work, the service you received, and anything else that’s important to you.

    Are you insured?

    When you hire a roof repair company in Alberta, you’ll also want to know if they carry WCB coverage. This coverage gives you the peace of mind that the company has the proper insurance if their employees are injured. If you work with a company that isn’t insured, you risk them coming after you for damages if someone hurts themselves on the job at your property.
