Questions To Ask Your Orlando Roofer Before They Start

March 01, 2022

In last week’s blog we talked about what to look for when hiring an Orlando area roofer. GAF, North America Largest Roofing Manufacturer . Makes it easy to find a local budget friendly roofer you can trust. Because a quality roof starts with a reliable local roofer.

GAF suggest asking your roofer these questions:

Understand installation plan, clean up and costs

Local codes and ordinances

Who will obtain the permit?
Are permit costs included?
Will you conduct an inspection before and after doing the work?

Product choices

How many shingle choices do you offer?
Are they listed by the brand and manufacturer’s name?
What warranties can you offer?
Can you tell me the differences (like construction, texture, UL fire rating) between the product options?

Estimates and payment

Does the estimate list the product name and color?
What are the payment terms? (It’s typical to pay one-third of the cost up front. Resist anyone asking you to pay for it all in advance.)
How do you accept payment? (Pay by check or credit card, not cash.)
How do I pay my insurance deductible? (Any contractor who claims they can handle the repair without you having to pay your insurance deductible may be committing insurance fraud and/or putting you at risk. Check out more tips for dealing with insurance here.)

Clean-up and inspection

Will you be conducting daily clean up?
How will they make sure your yard and home stay free from stray nails and other debris?
Who will inspect the job and when will that be?


How far out the roofing contractor is scheduling?
How many days will the project take?
What might cause possible delays in the schedule?
Is there a no-later-than finish date?
