1. Is the company properly licensed for the job?

Proper Licensing is the number one thing that you should check for when you are looking for a roofer. Our license at Royal Roofing is 35 years old and it is in good standing.

2. Does the company carry liability insurance and workers’ compensation insurance?

Carrying this coverage is required by law. Our company is completely covered and so are you.

3. Are there more than three testimonials or references that you can check?

In order for a business to stay in business, they have to have great quality referrals. Our upmost concern is to make sure that all of our customers are treated as if they were our only customer. Check out what they have to say about us.

4. Do their employees wear uniforms?

You might ask why, but the real question is why not? Why would a company not care to properly equip their employees with uniforms. The roofing industry is one of the toughest jobs or any human. Having the proper uniform and equipment will help the roofer adapt to the temperatures and the environment that is produced by their job.

5. Does the company have a physical location?

Finding the company that is doing your large project that you are paying a lot of money for on google maps and being able to call them is such a nice feeling. It gives you the peace of mind, knowing that you can always walk into their office and talk to them about your project. If the company has a physical location, then they care enough about their reputation to make sure their work is of great quality.

6. Does the company offer a guarantee, and are they likely to still be in business when the guarantee expires?

A newer company might do the job a lot cheaper than an older company, but when it comes down to it, any person with proper knowledge of business can tell you that the older company 9 times out of 10 will outlast the newer company because statistics prove that most new businesses fail within the first 10 years. Wouldn’t you want the company that is offering you the guarantee to be around when the guarantee expires?

7. Will the company be doing all of the work internally or subcontracting the work out?

At Royal, we are so proud to be able to say that all of our work is done by our own team. We don’t subcontract, we don’t hire any day labor, we don’t use any person off the streets. We truly care about the people that work with our company and make sure that they are family oriented and well respected, because those are the people that are going to care to make sure that the job is done correctly.

8. Does the company offer a written contract, including the cost of the work?

Probably the most important step. You are spending thousands of dollars on a construction project, because roofing is a small or large construction project. Make sure that the company that you are working with has a written contract that protects you. Our contract is built to protect our customers. We care about the quality of work that we do, therefore, we protect our clients and make sure that we are up to the highest standards when it comes to roofing.
