Repairing or replacing your roof can be stressful, and it’s difficult to know what to ask your contractor to ensure you’re well informed at all times. When you choose Intelligent Design, you choose a team of professionals who are the best in the business. We’ll work with you and go through our process so you know what to expect every step of the job. Consider asking these questions or some of your own if you’re looking for a roofing job.

Will You Remove the Old Roof?

Unless you’re an expert in the field yourself, it is nearly impossible to know if your old roof needs to be completely removed before it can be fixed. Asking your contractor to inspect your roof beforehand can save you some trouble and ensure there is a concrete plan in place before they set to work. While not every roof needs to be fully replaced, it is more common than most would anticipate.

Should I Consider Drip Edge Metal Installation?

Before your contractor sets to work on your roof repairs, it may be wise to ask them about drip edge metal installation. This feature is a piece of aluminum installed along the edge of the roof, extending off the roof to capture water runoff. Your home may not qualify for this upgrade, but you should check beforehand and consider having it done if the contractor gives the go ahead.

What are Your Bad Weather Plans?

Weather is unpredictable and can happen at the worst possible time, such as when you’re renovating your roof or other parts of your home. Speak with your contractor before they begin the job to ensure they have a plan in place if bad weather crops up. Knowing your contractor’s full plans and approach should save you stress when you’re having repairs done.

What is the Warranty?

Most roof repairs come with a warranty, depending on how much was repaired or replaced. While roof warranties are usually detailed and cover unforeseen complications, like natural disasters, it is still important to check.

How Will You Protect My Yard and Landscaping?

Every contractor should know how to protect your property while they’re working, and will do it, but it’s always good to check with them just in case. Accidents happen, so understanding their protection plan and damage reparations if something were to happen is important.
