You will need to invest a little more time and effort, but with this guide you will be able to ask the right questions to find the perfect contractor for your project.

Does The Company Specialize In Metal Roofing?

Metal roofing and cladding is a highly skilled sector of roofing. It is important to ensure the contractor you are considering has dedicated metal roofing specialists and trained installers to handle your project. They should be well versed in the world of metal roofing, as opposed to occasionally offering the service. Familiarity with metal roof installation will also mean they have the required tools for such projects. Don’t be afraid to ask if they have their own well-maintained equipment.

What Are Their Capabilities?

Does your metal roof have the potential to be a complex design? Will this require additional skills that are more suited to your project? Before going too far, make sure you are aware of your roof contractor’s capabilities – ensuring that they are able to carry out the project to a high standard. Which brings us to our next point…

Request Evidence of Prior Projects.

It takes quite a few years to become a metal roof contractor and most skilled installers have a genuine passion for what they do.  Any reputable contractors will be eager to show you recent examples of their work and explain the technical challenges and achievements involved in finishing the project. Always ask for reference projects and follow them up to ensure the projects are recent and your target installer is the person or company that completed that project.

Regardless of the project, you want a company where the professionals will deliver a quality metal roofing system at an honest price.
