Choosing a Metal Roofing Specialist - There are lots of projects a skilled homeowner can DIY: installing a toilet, swapping out an appliance, or tiling a floor, for example.

Fixing your home’s metal roof isn’t one of them. For any type of roofing project, it’s best to call a metal roofing specialist.

Roof work isn’t just dangerous, it also affects the integrity of your entire home.

If you have a metal roof, you’ll face special challenges and considerations compared with standard shingles.

Choosing a Metal Roofing Specialist: 4 Questions to Ask

Here’s how to interview a metal roofing specialist before you allow them to work on your home:

1. How long have you been in business?

A metal roofing company that hasn’t been in business long shouldn’t be an automatic “no.” But they should at least have plenty of experience installing, fixing, and maintaining metal roofing systems. You might also ask if the company has ever operated under a different name, then do some research on their former company (if applicable).

2. Do you have a license and insurance?

Professional roofers need a license to legally operate in the state of Florida. They are also required by law to have insurance, including worker’s compensation and liability insurance. This means that if an accident or injury were to occur on your property, you wouldn’t be left with the bill. Reputable companies will always be able to provide proof of insurance.

3. What warranties or guarantees do you offer?

A good metal roofing specialist stands by their work. And if for some reason there is an issue, they should be willing to fix it without a hassle to the homeowner. But homeowners should never assume that a roofer offers a warranty or guarantee. Make sure you get any promises in writing.

4. Can you provide references from customers with metal roofs?

A metal roofing specialist should have lots of finished projects they can share with you. If they work with other roofing materials, make sure you ask specifically for examples of metal roofs they’ve installed.
