44 Questions to Ask Before You Hire a Roofing Contractor
Here’s more information on how to hire a roofing contractor, in the form of a very practical list of questions.
Once you’ve identified what type of roof you want, using the Roofing Needs Profiler, or another method, it’s time for due diligence. In addition to the products supplied, the quality of the estimate, installation, clean-up, warranty, and follow-up add up to a quality project that will be protecting your home. All of these additions come from the roofing contractor.
Unfortunately, there’s a “buyer beware” situation when it comes to roofing your home, in most states. I always suggest that you interview and engage a professional roofing contractor, with a good record of customer satisfaction. So, how do you determine the level of professionalism of a roofing contractor? Ask the right questions.

I have developed a list of 44 questions to ask your prospective roofing contractor. These questions come from years of experience as a metal roofing manufacturer and ensuring that qualified, roofing contractors install the products we manufacture.
