If you are hiring a roofing contractor here in Minnesota, make sure that company can provide the type of help that is needed. If you do an online search for roofing companies in your area, you'll probably get a long list.  Most of them are reputable and capable, but unfortunately there are those that give the rest of us in the roofing industry a bad name. So it pays to do your homework BEFORE you sign a contract and hand over your deposit.

At the very least, insist on someone who has a good reputation, is knowledgeable about the particular type and brand of roofing you've chosen, is licensed and insured according to Minnesota regulations, and stands behind their work.

Here are some things to find out if your prospective roofing contractor does or not. It's important to investigate any contractor you hire to work on your home. Ask questions before you take action. That way, you can be confident you’re hiring the best one for the job

Do they keep your goals in mind?

Are they clear on what the future or goal or outcome is going to be or what you expect for your home? A good roofing contractor will work hard to fulfill your expectations and meet your needs.

Do they provide attic inspections?

What's going on in your attic space has a lot to do with how your roof is going to perform and how long it will last.  If they do not inspect in the attic or look around the top of the home for ventilation and proper insulation, then they are probably not doing their job as they are supposed to. You want someone who checks for this.

Do they provide permits and follow building code requirements?

A Minnesota home remodeling contractor should be the one to pull a permit, not the homeowner.  A roofing contractor also needs to be knowledgeable about state building code requirements as well as any local ordinances in order to be successful and professional in what they are doing. A good contractor should do all of this for you, so you don’t have to worry about it.

Do they use a contract?

For any type of home improvement or remodeling, insist on a contract to protect yourself and your home. You need to make sure that you have something that shows the details on work being done, the price, what is covered and more. No contract means you shouldn’t work with them. And don't rely on verbal assurances; get it in writing.
