The roof on your house protects you, your family and all of its contents. Your decision to repair, replace or update your roof as part of a home improvement project often comes from the desire to improve or remodel your home. And, maybe you are having a new house constructed. In all cases, your roofing contractor may just be the single most important contractor you hire during your home remodeling project.

While we are confident we are the best home improvement contractor serving Plymouth, Michigan and the surrounding communities, we know there are many home improvement companies to pick from. Here are some questions to consider:
1. How much experience does the roofing contractor have?
A new, less experienced contractor may be well qualified, but we feel you will be more comfortable with someone who is established, someone who has been in business for many years.
2. Does the roofing contractor have references?
A good, quality company is willing and able to provide references and reviews. Check online for reviews as well as sites such as the Better Business Bureau for information that can be obtained objectively and independently.
3. Are the contractor and roofing team certified, licensed, bonded and insured?
There is a lot of liability when getting up on a roof. It is potentially dangerous. Inquiring about certification qualifications, licensing, bonding and insurance while on the job are all valid questions. Cover all basis before you end up with a lawsuit or liability in the case of injury to roofing workers while on your premises.
4. Will they give you an inspection and detailed quote in writing?
Be careful to not fall for approximations or best case scenario type pricing. You can and should expect a full inspection of your roof and its surrounding structure. Full written evaluation as well as an estimate should follow. The evaluation should be signed by the Owner or a top level administrative assistant. Be sure to obtain a copy.
5. Will they remove the old roof?
Some roofing contractors cut corners by placing a new roof on top of an old roof. While this may be okay in some cases, there are risks in doing this. The structure of the roof may be weak, i.e. boards may be rotted or even missing. Be sure to ask about removal of the old roofing.
6. If the old roof is removed, will you be responsible for cleanup?
We strongly recommend you choose a roofing contractor who cleans up and hauls away old roofing. Nails and debris left behind is a huge project. Don’t get stuck cleaning up yourself. Again, this is a type of corner cutting that should not be accepted.
7. Does the new roof/roofing project come with a warranty?
Professional, reputable roofing contractors stand behind their work. If a roofing contractor does not have a warranty, this may be indicative of the kind of craftsmanship and overall quality of the roofing project.
