    Make Sure They Are a Licensed Roofing Contractor

    The first thing you need to do as soon as you set up your initial meeting is to make sure that the roofing contractor that you are going to hire is licensed, and licensed in the state that you are living in. Most states do require a license from contractors. With this being said, it does not stop not licensed contractors from trying to snag jobs of their own. What isn’t known to those though is that roofing is regulated by the government. Having that license means the contractor has the correct credits and knowledge for this profession.

    Having Applicable Insurance

    With a job like working on roofs, there is a risk for injury on the job. With this in mind, your contractor should have the proper insurance because of this risk. Anyone would hate to see something happen like this on the job, but knowing that they are at least covered should put your mind at ease.

    Knowing Their References

    One of the best ways that you can decide if this contractor is the best fit for you is knowing their experience and the ability to check their past work. For this, simply ask them for their previous clients who you can either visit or then talk to about their experience with this contractor. You can ask as many questions as you need to make sure that you have an ease of mind, and the job you need to be done will be done in the best way possible.
