Some homeowners around the Twin Cities are thinking about roof replacement when the weather warms up.  Replacing your roof can be a hard thing to go through.  There are many steps to take, not the least important of which is choosing a roofing contractor you can trust and then learning how to work with them.   You have to know what to do and what not to do. You want to make the best decisions during this big process, since a roof replacement is a major investment in your home.

Use Caution When Shopping for a MN Roofing Company

When you get estimates, you do not have to use the same contractor that inspected your roof. You do not have to feel obligated to work with them just because they were up there and checked it out. You can ask them for an estimate, but it's a good idea to get several others as well.  You have to make sure to investigate each roofing company you're considering. Ask questions, get to know them better, and then choose which one you feel the most confident and comfortable working with.  Be sure to check references as well as verifying that the roofing contractor is licensed and insured.  And if you're considering a certain roofing material, it's a good idea to go with a contractor who is either certified or recommended by the manufacturer.  Roofing manufacturers have specific installation requirements, and you want to be confident that your contractor knows how to work with the material you've chosen.

Secure the Right Roofing Contractor for the Job

Once you find the ideal contractor, you can then feel better about the roofing that you’re going to have them do. When you find a contractor you're comfortable with, then it is time to secure them for the roofing job that you have. This can be done through a contract that you both sign and agree to. You need to make sure that the price is in there, the time frame that they expect to complete it, and specific materials to be used for the replacement. Everything should be covered in this contract for both parties. You do not want to miss out because something was omitted.  And while you can be expected to pay a reasonable amount for a deposit, the contract should not require you to make full payment until after the roofing installation is completed to your satisfaction.
