When looking to hire a Minnesota Roofing Contractor, you’re going to do some research (both online and in person) and see if the one you have in mind is a good fit for you both personally and professionally. After all, you want someone you can easily communicate with, someone who answers the phone when you call, and someone who knows what they’re doing, and does their job well.

Does the contractor seem genuine and sincere? Do they seem like they want your business (or not)?

Here’s a good list to go over when hiring a contractor: 

1. What is the complete name and address of the organization?

Having an organization that is close by improves the probability of better and quick assistance. If you are given a PO Box ask for a road address too.

2. Does the organization have insurance?

If someone from their company is injured on the job, do they have insurance coverage? Ask to see their certificate and make sure it’s current.

3. Is the organization headed up by an authorized or credentialed Roofing Contractor?

Many state and neighborhood governments require Minnesota Roofing Contractors to be authorized or credentialed. Contact your local government’s office to find out if the contractor you’re interested in is authorized/credentialed to be doing the work they’re doing, professionally.

4. To what extent has the organization been doing business?

The longer they’ve been in business, the better. It’s best to choose a contractor who has been in business locally for at least three years.

5. Will the organization give referrals or references from past employments?

Request a rundown of ten names and telephone numbers of ongoing/previous clients, with an emphasis on those served during the most recent year. It isn’t important to call every one of the ten, but pick a few at random and call. Ask if the contractor was reliable, did the work on time, etc.

6. What is the organization’s warranty?

A few warranties are for one year, while some are longer. The length of a Minnesota Roofing Contractor’s warranty isn’t generally as significant as client referrals.
