SPC Construction & Roofing wants you to be prepared for the unexpected, so even if you suddenly find yourself needing a roofing contractor, you’ll know what to ask, what to expect, and what constitutes a good company.

With over 30 years of experience in your neighborhoods, SPC Construction & Roofing knows a thing or two about the industry, and we want you to feel just as confident! Read on to become an expert in what to look for, and what to ask, of your roofing contractor.
We bet you know what the answer to this question should be – yes! Never work with a contractor who is not licensed, because at worst, the job will be dangerous, and at best, it will not be up to code and could result in fines or legal action.
The last thing you need after roof damage are more problems pertaining to the repairs, so double check that your roofing contractor is a professional and can stand behind their work.
This is another huge question that always needs to be a‘yes’. Because, once again, if they don’t have the proper paperwork, then the responsibility and liability would fall to you.
Any roofing contractor you work with should have insurance for their work as well as for their workers. Additionally, asking about warranty policies is never a bad idea either, as a trustworthy roofing contractor should offer some peace of mind about the quality of their work.
Be wary of any contractor who doesn’t provide insurance documents, licensure, or warranties.
The answer to this question isn’t necessarily bad either way, but you do want to make sure that you know who will be working around, on, or in your house, and that the roofing company or contractors have records of the subcontractors they work with.
Make sure you know the track record of the subcontractors (or employees) as well, as the quality of their past work is the best indication of the quality they will provide you.
This is a great question if you know you will be making a claim or if your roofing damage is due to a storm or other damage your home insurance should cover.
Working with a roofing contractor or company that knows their way around insurance claims and companies is a great way to avoid a whole lot of hassle in an already stressful time.
This is a question that your roofing contractor should be able to answer quickly and easily, as they should have their safety measures the same at each roofing job they do and should therefore have it down to a science.
Additionally, safety, insurance, licensure, and more are good indications of a quality, reliable company, and when it comes to your roof’s quality you don’t want to be cutting corners.
This question is important to many of our clients because they want to support local businesses and their area, however, it is also helpful to know that you can reach or visit your roofing contractor should you ever need to.
If your contractor is based 4 hours away – it might be very difficult to communicate or meet in person, which can add unnecessary hassles to the job.
A good roofing company will always offer a free quote, estimate, or inspection, and always provide it written.
You should be wary of purely verbal quotes as they cannot be proven and therefore leave you open to being charged more than was originally agreed upon. Make sure you protect yourself and get quotes, guarantees, or other agreements in writing.
Hopefully, you won’t need these written protections, but it’s better to be safe than sorry.
