Questions to Ask Your Residential Roofer Before the Job Starts

It’s not out of the ordinary for a residential roof to be done in a day. This is even if the old roof needs to be ripped off. But this isn’t always the case. It could take longer. The size of your roof, weather conditions, and the size of the roofing crew can all contribute to the length of time it’ll take. Ask your roofer questions beforehand so that you can be prepared for the day or days the project is underway.  Beyond asking about the length of the roofing job there might be some additional items below that you’ll want to know about.

Here are some things you might want to know about your residential roofing replacement or overlay:

  • How long the residential roofer expects the roof to take.
  • What time the job will start and stop each day that the roof is being worked on.
  • Whether or not you need to move things that are close to your home. (If in doubt, the suggestion is to keep the area around your home as clear as possible, so that your roofer can access various sections of the roof as well as to protect your belongings from falling debris.
  • Who will remove the debris associated with the job? Will your roofer take responsibility for old shingles and materials removed from your old roof?
  • Pricing: Ask for a quote in writing and be sure you read the fine print.
  • Warranty information. It’s important to know what warranty will be attached to your roof. A good residential roofer will go over this long before the job starts. There may be a few options for materials suppliers with varying price points as well as various warranties associated.

    By asking all of your questions before the residential St. Louis roofing job starts you’ll ensure that you have pertinent information and that you won’t be slowing progress or being a distraction while the roofer is working on the house.
