When it comes to your roof, you want to know you are getting the best service and the right product.
However, it can be tough to know exactly what questions to ask when getting a roofing quote!
If you know what to ask, and what the answers to those questions should sound like, you are one step ahead of the game. Ask these questions to ensure your peace of mind while you get your next roofing quote.
Q: How long have you been in business?
This sounds like an easy question, but it can give you real insight into the roofing company you choose. Keep an eye out for vague answers of “a long time” or “a while”. Be aware of any unsure or hesitant answers.
Quality roofing service comes from experience and quality training. When you ask this question, you ideally want to hear a resounding and strong answer. It is almost more important to focus on the tone and authority this question is answered with than the actual number of years provided.
At Tingley Roofing, you can expect to hear a proud answer boasting our decades of experience in both residential and commercial roofing in the Illinois and Indiana areas. We have roofed over 4 million square feet, and we are proud of it!
Q: What things might cause a change to the contracted price?
This is a very important question to ask while getting a quote. Again, you are looking for confident answers first and foremost. But, unexpected things can happen during any roofing project. There may be extra hidden damage or other features that need addressed once that roof repair starts.
The key here is how the roofing company will communicate with you. You want to feel comfortable that they are going to keep you informed every step of the way so you can provide your input, and aren’t blindsided by extra costs in the end.
Q: How quickly will the project be completed, including cleanup?
While this question is pretty common to ask, be sure you are getting the correct information in your answer. You want to know exactly when dumpsters may be dropped off, when the crew may need access to different areas of your yard, and more. You also want to ask about the cleanup process and when any trash or dumpsters will be removed.
All of this can play an important role in making sure your roofing project goes smoothly. The last thing you want is to have an unexpected trash dumpster blocking your vehicle when you are on your way to work!
In conclusion, don’t just pay attention to the content of the answers when you are interviewing your roofing company. Pay attention to the swiftness and confidence in the answers. Any roofing company that has the correct amount of experience and training will be more than happy to answer all of your questions in detail to ensure the process goes smoothly!
