Hiring a Denver roofing contractor for repairs and replacements to your home is the best way to get a quick, easy solution to roof home repair projects. Before you jump into a contract, you need to be sure you’re happy with who will be working on the roof of your home or business. Both residential and commercial roofing jobs need a special hand, so double-check your options against this handy checklist that vets contractors automatically if they get a clean sweep!
#1 Simple Hiring Checklist For A Roof Company
Before signing a contract, fulfill each of these steps first. Once you find a company who deals with roofs that have earned all the checkmarks, you are free to proceed with the contractor! Business deals are pretty standard in construction and home improvement, but it never hurts to be cautious and use a reminder to check sources.
1. Check Their History
Anyone can claim to be an expert, but how can you be sure? Start by checking reviews and testimonials left by past clients. It’s even better if they’re verified, or feature a portfolio of past work. You can also do a little investigating by asking friends, family, and colleagues for information, if they’ve dealt with that roofing company before.
Finally, make sure you’re reading up about the business wanting your contract. How long have they been working on roofs? What special skills does the contractor(s) have that sets them apart? Just a small amount of effort on your end can save you from accidentally striking up a contract with the wrong business to get involved in.
2. Ensure They Are Certified
What certifications does your contractor have? Have they won any past awards or hold special licenses that allow them to do things other contractors may not? These are some good questions to check into, either by asking or doing some research.

3. Ask About Pricing
Budget matters, especially if you’re in the commercial industry. Your money is worth something, so don’t hesitate to compare quotes, estimates, and prices. Shop around! Most roofing contractors, including us, will offer a free estimate, and you may even find a consultation that will be free of charge, too.
4. Review The Contract
It’s always best to get a second set of eyes to check the contract before signing, especially if you personally are not exceptionally business savvy. Not everyone understands the legal jargon that is sometimes used, so be sure you’re fully educated on the contract and any minor caveats that may be in there hiding. This isn’t something you’ll come across often, but it’s good to be aware.
After all that fuss, there is only one step left to do! If you find yourself satisfied with a contractor’s history, certification, budget, and contract, it’s time to get the job officially started. Make sure you both get to keep a copy of the contract.
