In the previous post, “Landing the Right Roofing Houston TX Contractor: The Bid,” we talked about how you should start your roofing project and how you can land the perfect bid. In this post, we continue our discussion about how you can land the right roofers with an interview.
After the Bid
The interview is when things start to get tricky. It is important to interview you contractor especially if you’re planning a major roofing project. Here are a few tips you need to keep in mind when interviewing possible contractors:
Tip 1: Take it Easy
Remember that you’re there to learn more about a contractor, not to grill the guy. Stay relaxed and calm, but assertive at the same time. By being relaxed, you can ask better questions and gauge a contractor more accurately.
Tip 2: Be Prepared
It’s good to prepare a set of questions. Make the most of your time together by having a short list of things you are most interested to know. The conversation will drive more questions, but it’s always good to have a starting point or an idea of questions you definitely want answered before the end of the interview.
Tip 3: What Should I Ask?
Don’t have an idea what to ask? Here are a few suggestions that you can ask your roofer. Feel free to tweak these questions to your preference:
How long have you been in the industry, and have you operated under a different name?
Most companies change business names over time. Name changes can reveal many things about a company. If a company changed its name after any untoward event, you may want to reconsider this contractor.
Have you had any previous issues in the past three years?
One issue is alright as long as the contractor explains the situation to you. However, stay away if you notice recurring issues with different clients.
