Summerville Roofing: Article About Finding The Right Roofer
Finding the right professional roofer for your Summerville roofing job can be difficult, but it doesn't need to feel overwhelming. This is especially apparent if you own an antique home and are worried about maintaining its original beauty. Fortunately, with a few tips you can easily locate the right roofer for your project.
When you first contact a roofing company, you should ask about their qualifications. Licensing and other certifications can give you peace of mind knowing that the roofer has professional education and training in their craft. Hiring an unlicensed and uncertified roofer can result in complications such as a longer work duration than originally quoted, poor craftsmanship and low-quality materials.
After learning about a roofer's qualifications, you should ask to view examples of their work. Focus on reviewing work that is related to your roof to get a better idea of what to expect. Just because a roofer says they have worked on your particular roofing style doesn't mean they are experienced enough to take on your project. This is why viewing a portfolio or samples of work is a must.
Another important thing to discuss with a roofer is their insurance. Ideally, a roofer should have workers' compensation and general liability insurance in case of an accident. Workers' compensation protects you and the professional roofer in case he suffers an injury while working on your property. If the roofer you choose to hire does not have this type of insurance, you may be liable for medical bills such as hospitalization, should an injury occur.

Many homeowners make the mistake of failing to ask to see proof of insurance. You should always request proof, such as a document. You may also call the insurance company directly to confirm that the roofer is indeed insured.
References are also a crucial part of finding the right roofer for your job. Most professional roofing companies are happy to provide several references for you to contact. You should get in touch with at least three. Make sure they are recent customers. When contacting a reference, prepare a list of questions ahead of time. Some things you should ask about include quality of work, quality of customer service and duration of the work. While references serve an invaluable purpose, you should not rely on their feedback entirely, nor should you hire a roofer based solely on references. Instead, use the feedback to help you make a well-rounded decision.
