you’ll need the help of a professional roofing contractor

Here at Midian Roofing, we know that you want to take care of your home or business, and that includes keeping the rood in good condition. If your roof is damaged or just ready for replacement, then you’ll need the help of a professional roofing contractor. Our team also understands that choosing a contractor to work on your property can be a daunting process, so to make it easier, we have put together this list of three key questions to ask before hiring a roofing contractor.

  • Do they have the right insurance? Accidents can happen to anyone, and those who work high in the air are at greater risk. Because of this, you should ask your prospective roofing contractor about the insurance coverage they carry. Any reliable roofer will have comprehensive liability and workers’ compensation insurance to protect you in the event of an accident on the job. We at Midian Roofing expect this question and are happy to hand over our insurance documentation, and so should any roofing contractor you select.
  • Do they have the right licensing? Another question we suggest you ask a prospective roofing contractor is what licenses or credentials they have. Trade licensing is a way to ensure that professionals in that field have the right training and experience to do the job, so you should always ask to view these credentials before hiring a roofing contractor. Like insurance documentation, licenses are something that a reputable contractor should be ready to provide to their customers.
  • Will they provide references? The last point that we’ll go over here is that you should always ask a roofing contractor to provide references from previous projects. Photos of past work are a great way to get a better sense of the team’s skill, but if the company doesn’t take photos of their projects you can also ask for a list of previous customers who you can contact to ask about their experiences. We at Midian Roofing take pride in our work and are happy to provide contact information for many of our satisfied customers.
