You’ll need to consider a few crucial things when you’re planning a roof repair or hiring a home exterior services contractor. This doesn’t just mean choosing the best materials or preparing your home for the work ahead–you’ll also need to consider the right contractor for the job, as well. Given how you’ll be depending on them to ensure your project runs smoothly, it’s important to work with a pro you can be on the same page with.
You can learn more about your contractor by asking the right questions. Read on as UHQ Construction, your premier home improvement company in Indianapolis, IN, shares the three important things you should ask your contractor before starting a project:
Are you licensed? Having the necessary license makes the contractor eligible to perform roofing or exterior work in your area. In fact, a licensed contractor will make sure your project adheres to local codes and safety regulations. They’ll also acquire the applicable building permit should the home upgrade require it. Roof replacement, for example, is a time-consuming and complicated project. Without these permits, it can mean fines, potential litigation or forced removal of your new roof.
Do you carry insurance? Make sure your contractor has proof of insurance, including workers’ compensation and liability coverage. Unwelcome surprises and accidents, after all, are not unheard off in roofing or exterior work. Choosing an insured contractor, like UHQ Construction, can help protect you and your investment better in the event of worker injuries or property damage.
What manufacturer certifications do you have? Working with a certified contractor offers many advantages. You’ll have access to higher quality materials and products from the leading manufacturers, plus the generous warranties included with them. UHQ Construction, for instance, is an Owens Corning® Preferred Contractor, meaning we can offer you a range of the brand’s exceptional roofing systems. We can also help you with your siding needs. Certified by James Hardie®, we can provide lovely, durable and high-performing fiber cement siding that lasts. We know these products inside and out, so you don’t have to worry about proper installation.
