They say that death and taxes are the only sure things in life, but an unspoken third certainty is this: Eventually your home’s roof will need to be repaired or replaced. This is especially true in the wildly varied climate we experience here in Connecticut.
The roof is one of the most important parts of your home, protecting it from the elements, vermin, and acting as an overall protectant. Having any work done on it is a major investment, to boot. With all that in mind it’s extremely important that when the time comes for roof repairs or a roof replacement on your home, you find the right team for the job. Bad roofers make for bad roods, wasted money, and problems down the line.

Ask Your Friends and Family for Recommendations
One of the best ways to know if a roofer will do a good job is knowing that they’ve done good work in the past. Odds are someone you know has had roof work done in the last few years. Ask around, and see if anyone has any recommendations.
Look for Online Reviews
Take a look online for local roofing contractors on sites like Yelp and Angie’s List. There will be plenty of reviews to read, often both positive and negative. Find some of the best-reviewed contractors across different sites, and add them to your list of potential candidates.
Call Your Potential Candidates for an Interview and an Estimate
Once you have a list of a few contractors you’re considering hiring, contact each one ask for a price quote on the job you have in mind (price is sure to be a big factor in hiring). Then ask the following questions:
Are you licensed? What’s your Connecticut state license number?
Are you full insured?
Do you have a permanent location? Is it local?
How do you dispose of debris other materials over the course of a job?
Can you offer any references or case studies about past roofing jobs?
What materials do you work with? Only asphalt, or can you install cedar, metal, composite, or other materials.
How long have you been in business?
How long do you expect this job to take?
Any other questions you have, based on your specific circumstances and concerns.
