How to Choose a Roofer

Roofs are the first line of defense for a house against the weather. Don't do it wrong! It doesn't matter if you are looking to improve your home, or replace old windows. Or repair leaks in crawlspaces. Take a look at these tips to help you find the right Indianapolis roofing contractors.

Training & certificates:

Some shingles manufacturers offer training to their installers to help ensure proper installation. Ask your potential roofing contractors about their experiences, and make sure to hire a reputable company that can provide this type of guidance for any project.

If you are looking to hire an electrician, the first thing you should do is ensure they have the right certification. This certification allows them to be safe and competent on-site. Unfortunately, not everyone is successful.

Make sure to check for insurance

Check to see if your contractor has general liability and worker's insurance. While worker's comp will cover injuries sustained on the job by workers, general liability protects you from damage caused by them while at your house.

You can check for licenses

If you are unsure if a contractor is licensed, ask for their tax ID number, business address, and website. Even though they may not be licensed in your area I recommend you still check with them to confirm that they are knowledgeable about all requirements and committed to doing great work.

Get in writing:

A contract can be a great way for you to protect yourself, the homeowner. A contract is a good way to protect yourself as a homeowner. The formal document should detail payment schedules for both parties to any agreement (customer/landowner in our example) and what roofing materials will also be used. To avoid surprises later on, such as when the installation is completed but not yet started, we recommend that you include details about the start and end dates. It is vital to include details regarding the safety and protection of your garden, landscaping, or property, as well as any damages that may happen during construction. Hire a reputable company to do this type of work.

No cash payments

You might think that cash is the easiest and most hassle-free way to pay. But there are important things to remember before making that final decision.

There's a chance that you might not have proof of the installation or repair. Documentation is the best policy!


The roof is the most important part of your house, so it's essential that you do it right. Compare different Indianapolis roofing companies and get multiple estimates before deciding on who will replace it or install new ones.
