Replacing your roof is a big decision and a big investment and the best way to protect that investment is to hire the best local roofer for the job. Here are some important topics to cover while you are interviewing local roofers:
- Licensing and credentials – roofers need to carry a state-issued license to be allowed to practice. To obtain that license, they need to study a lot and they need to pass difficult exams, so a licensed roofer is surely one that has the knowledge and experience you need. Good roofers continue to learn even after they obtain their license, so check their certificates and other credentials as well;
- Experience – look for a roofer that has experience in working with the material and the type of roof that you need help with, so check the roofer’s portfolio of previous work;
- The roofing process – ask the roofers you are interviewing to tell you about the steps involved with the roofing process and discuss how they will handle issues such as the removal of the waste generated during the process, too;
- The price and the warranties – roofing rates vary from roofers in Lincoln to the other, so ask each roofer you talk to to provide a written cost estimate that includes all the details of the project as well as information related to the warranties they provide. Get at least three or four estimates and pick the one that offers the best value for your money.
