How to Find and Hire a Roofer

To help you along, Tusing Builders and Roofing Services has come up with a few tips for finding a good roofer no matter where you are. Read on to know what to look for and how to pick them.


Before you can make your choice, you have to make a list of potential candidates first. To do so, identify what kind of project you are planning in the first place. Also consider the scale of your project. For example, it’s easier to find someone specializing in roof repair than someone who can properly do a full roof replacement, so be sure you know the full extent of their services.

You can use the Internet to search for directories that list the contact details of contractors near your area. Or you can even use social media to look for them.


Once you’ve come  up with a list of prospects, create a set of interview questions. You don’t have to ask a lot, but you should ask questions that will give you meaningful insight into the contractor. This includes questions about their license and general paperwork, insurance, previous references and contractual offers. For example, you will want to pick out roofers who are are licensed, or ones who are willing to meet with you every week–preferably both.

Contractual Signing

Once you find a contractor that works for your needs, get ready to sign the paperwork, but not right away. Remember to discuss everything about the project first. Don’t leave any detail out, since the more they know about what you need or want, the better they’ll be able to help.

When the paperwork is ready, read the contract thoroughly. If you’ve negotiated the payment beforehand, make sure to read through the payment details included in the deal. Never agree to a full payment upfront.

Above all else, make sure they offer a termination clause. This means that, given a set of parameters, you can choose to terminate the project if something happens during the process that violates the terms of your contract.
