Whether you’re installing a new roof or need new windows, it’s important that you work with an experienced home improvement contractor to ensure the success of your project. Equally important are the questions you should ask them to be sure you’re working with the best.
In this post, Exterior Source lists the four essential questions you should ask your prospective home remodeler.
1. How Long Have You Been in Business?
This should be your first question. Asking how long your prospective contractor has been in business allows you to gauge how experienced they are. A roofer with more than 10 years of experience is prepared for anything that can happen in your project and knows the best strategies and best practices to ensure a successful project.
2. Do You Install Windows?
While it may seem like an odd question, not all home improvement contractors offer full remodeling services like us. Not all contractors can offer replacement windows, so make it a point to ask them if they do. After all, these play a critical role in your home by naturally ventilating and insulating your home, just like the roof.
3. What Kind of Roofs Do You Install?
The roof is a major component of your home and should be one of the priorities on your next model. That said, not all roofs look and perform the same, so it’s a good idea to ask your prospective contractor the kind they offer.
4. Do You Install Seamless Gutters?
Finally, ask your prospective contractor if they offer seamless gutters. These are the superior choice for water management as they aren’t susceptible to leaks compared with sectional gutters. On top of that, they provide a nice finish to your home.
