Your roofer understands your type of roof system.
There are a variety of roofing systems on the market. How each are installed and repaired differ greatly. With that being said, you want to choose a contractor who’s certified to work with your specific roof so you can rest assured that they know the proper methods and materials.
You’ll comply with all warranty requirements.
If your roof is still under warranty, it’s important to hire a contractor who’s certified by your systems material manufacturer. If you hire someone who does a repair on your roof who isn’t, you risk the chance of no coverage if another problem arises in the future.
Your roofer is up-to-date on industry trends and manufacturer best practices.
If your contractor has difficulty answering most of your questions, that’s a bad sign. Contractors have to go through factory training to educate themselves on installing, maintaining, and repairing all of the products in the market. And in order to retain that certification, they have to continue their education throughout their career. So, make sure you’re checking up on the businesses certifications online before you hire!
