When choosing the right contractor for your roof replacement or repair project, you have to do your due diligence. To help you make an informed decision, you have to do your research online, ask for recommendations, and interview prospects. However, you still have to stay involved even after you’ve made your choice.
Throughout the entire process, you must communicate with your roofer regularly. It might seem a daunting task, but it can make a world of difference in ensuring the success of your project. Here’s what you need to keep in mind until the project is complete.
Agree on Modes of Communication
Whether there’s an issue or everything is going smoothly, be sure your contractor can easily reach you. Agree on which mode of communication to use for interacting with them. It could be over the phone, email or text message, or any combination of the three.
Learn About the Roofing Process
It still pays to be involved in your roofing project, and it starts with doing your research and understanding the process behind it. Take some time to learn about what you’ve been told during your initial meetings with your roofing contractor. This includes the roofing materials and components that will be used for the project.
Asking questions and voicing your concerns are encouraged, even when the project is underway. The contractor will be completely transparent with you about what they are doing. Then again, do so without hovering over them.
Put Everything in Writing
A roofing contract is a document that legally binds a roofer to the promises they make for the job. It gives you peace of mind knowing the contractor you hired is legitimate and will deliver the work they’ll be doing. Thus, see to it that every detail of the project should be put in writing, including its overall cost, start and end dates, and the materials that will be used.
