What Should You Ask a Roofing Contractor Before Hiring One to Work on Your Washington, D.C. Home?

Roofing Contractor Washington D.C. Has the time come to hire a roofing contractor to perform repair or replacement work on your Washington, D.C. home? If so, taking the time to thoroughly research potential companies before hiring one is a wise decision that will pay off big in the long run.

All too often, homeowners simply go with the roofing contractor who offers the lowest bid. However, deals that seem too good to be true usually are. Though an exceptionally low price may be tempting, it is often accompanied by shoddy workmanship and other hassles that can become costly in the long run. To ensure you are hiring a reputable company that will provide top-notch work and service, take the following steps:

  • Ask to see proof of insurance – Working with an uninsured company can leave you vulnerable to heavy financial burdens if a worker is injured on the job.
  • Check their customer reviews – A small number of poor reviews does not necessarily indicate that the company performs poor work. However, excessive negative reviews may indicate that you should look for another roofing contractor.
  • Ask about their certifications – Usually, a company with a good reputation will have earned certifications or accolades in recognition of their excellence.

Although bad weather interrupted the schedule, the actual work of installing roof and gutters was finished very quickly. Roof and gutters look great, and I no longer worry about overflowing gutters

Nathan thoroughly checked the entire area of the roof and explained to me what was needed and how he was going to handle it. He did the repairs in record time and completely cleaned the site.
