With that being said, here are a few of our ‘Commonly asked, Hiring a Roofing Contractor Questions’, to help everyone with this process.” 

Question: Should I ask for references? 

Yes and you should also look at on-line reviews and website testimonials about their work.  The star ratings show how customers rate their professionalism. Read any and all reviews that are posted by their past customers. 

Question: Should I ask to see their proof of insurance? 

A roofing contractor needs to carry commercial liability insurance to protect his clients from unforeseen events that can occur during the project. Roofing contractors will include a Certificate of Insurance (CIO) and their Workman’s Compensation (WC Certificate) when they submit their proposal. 

Question: Should I ask to see the contractors roofing license?

Yes, all roofing companies must have a valid Illinois State Roofing License. 

Question: Do I get a manufacturer’s warranty on the materials to be used?

The roofing contractor should provide you with a copy of the manufacturer’s warranty on the materials that are to be used on the project. This tells you what is covered and for how long.  This will also help you to select the type and the grade of material that you will want to install on your new roof. 

Question:  Does the contractor need to have a “Workmanship” warranty covering the installation of the roofing materials?

Reputable roofing contractors always provide a workmanship warranty that covers issues arising out of their installation methods.  Their warranty should specify what is covered and for how long. 

Question:  Should I always go with the lowest price?

As with most things in life, you get what you pay for. Choosing the lowest price is not always the best course of action to take. Yes, price is important but the reputation of the company, its customer satisfaction ratings, its quality of workmanship and the materials it uses must be factored into your contracting decision. 

Question:  Does the roofing contractor need to have a Roof Maintenance Program?

Construction companies who have roof preventative maintenance programs are usually some of the best local remodeling contractors in the area. The best thing that you can do to prepare for unforeseen events is to have your roof inspected and photographed by a professional. This gives solid “before the event” evidence of the condition of your roof before any damage occurs. Sparks Construction LLC has an affordable Roof Maintenance Program that includes 2 documented inspections per year to homeowners who qualify.
