Published: June 20th, 2023 | Category: Roofing

Are you looking for a roofer in Roseville? With so many options, narrowing down your choices can be difficult. That’s why, at JTR Roofing, we have compiled a list of questions that we think everyone should ask their roofer before you hire them.

How long has your company been in business?

One amazing way to sort through roofers is to ask how long they have been in business. While there are definitely new companies that will do the job well, companies that have been in business for longer often have their reputation on the line and have additional experience.

JTR Roofing has been proudly serving the Twin Cities area since 1992, and we are proud of the work that we have accomplished in the last few decades.

Can you provide references?

Whether you are purchasing an item online or hiring a contractor, reviews and references are important to know that you are getting what you paid for. If a roofer leaves customers stilted or with subpar work, they aren’t likely to recommend them to anyone else.

Positive reviews and testimonials should be proudly shared, as we are happy to know that our customers are satisfied with the work that we do!

Do you offer any guarantees or warranties?

No matter what service or product you are purchasing, it’s important to understand any guarantees or warranties included. If the work is done incorrectly and leads to further issues down the line, you want to know that you are covered.

Guarantees and warranties often vary depending on the type of project and the roofing materials used, so it’s best to ask your roofer this before hiring them!

Do you have any partnerships or certifications?

An experienced, trustworthy company has likely been recognized by other organizations or manufacturers for their work. These partnerships or certifications can help identify roofers who are reliable and know what they are doing.

For example, at JTR Roofing we are:

  • A member of the National Roofing Contractors Association
  • An Owens Corning Preferred Contractor
  • BBB Accredited
  • CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMaster
  • Part of the CertainTeed Building Solutions program
  • And more!

Where is your business located?

While this may sound like a strange question, it is always best to hire a local contractor who understands codes, regulations and the climate of the area in which you live. Plus, if there is a problem you should have no problem tracking down someone who is local.

At JTR Roofing, we have been working in the Twin Cities from the start. We work where we live, so we understand the climate and know the local building codes and regulations like the back of our hands.

Do you work with insurance or help with insurance claims?

This is especially important if you have experienced storm damage. You want to hire someone who has experience working with insurance companies on claims as well as experience fixing the damage your roof has sustained.

JTR Roofing specializes in storm damage and can help you through the process. We will work with your insurance to get you the repairs you need.

While there are so many questions you can and should ask before hiring someone, these can help you narrow down the list early on. When you need a roofer in Roseville, you want to hire someone trustworthy, local and reliable. Call JTR Roofing today at 651-777-7394 or contact us!
