What you need to know before you hire a roofer
What to Look For

Clear Terms on the Contract?
Written proposal submitted by the contractor should clearly define the scope of the work to be completed and also be easy to read. Payment schedule made by you and how much each payment will be is important to note. A contractor should make sure both parties understand and are informed of what the agreement entails.
Do They Carry Insurance?
Making sure your contractor carries insurance is a wise choice in case of any accidental damage to your property or the employees on your roof.
