If you need help with roof repair but you’ve never needed to hire a roofer before (or it’s been quite a long time since you’ve hired one in the past), you may be wondering how to sort the good from the bad.

There are dozens of companies in the Denver metro area and each one claims to offer the best service at the best price. Yet any savvy consumer knows that they all can’t be “the best.”

For this post, the experts at Pioneer Home Solutions wanted to discuss some of the questions you should ask a Denver roofer before you decide to hire them.

Have you done this type of work in the past?

This may seem like a silly thing to ask. After all, you’re asking a roofer if they’ve performed roofing services before. Yet the question isn’t as cut-and-dry as you may think. If you have specialty roofing materials on your home or you have an unusual roofing system (ie: rubber roof), you’ll want to be sure the person you hire has experience in working with that material. Every roofer under the sun has experience with asphalt shingles, but they don’t all have experience with metal roofing, stone-coated steel roofing systems, slate, rubber slate, clay and concrete tiles and green roofing systems.

If you need to have a skylight installed or repaired, ask the roofer if they’ve done a skylight installation in the past. Remember- the goal is to hire the best possible person for the job. If the roofer has never done the type of work you need, but they give you a very cheap bid, if you choose that company, you could have a disaster on your hands.

How much experience do you have?

Just because a company is new, that doesn’t make them a poor choice. For example, if company X has only been open for a year but the owner has been working in the roofing industry for two decades, this is probably a safe bet. On the other hand, if the company is a bit on the new side and it was started by two guys in their early 20s because they did some roofing side-jobs when they were in college, well, this one may be a bit green around the edges.

Experience matters- especially when it comes to roof repair.
