Good Questions to ask Your Roofing Contractor in Baton Roug

POSTED ON: 07/01/2022

It is a big decision to get a new roof for your home.  The expense, the decisions that go into it (what kind of roof should you get, what color, what company should you choose?) and the disruptions to your home life or business are all major things to take into consideration.  However, the biggest decision of all is what company to use.   So, how do you go about finding an experienced and knowledgeable roofing company in Baton Rouge?  Having a premade list of questions to ask them when they come to look at your residence or commercial space is tantamount to making sure you will be satisfied with the job.  So, what types of questions should you ask?  Here are some general ideas.

Do they have any affiliations or designations within the industry?  Pelican Roofing in Baton Rouge, LA is an Owens Corning Platinum contractor and an Atlas Diamond contractor and are a Better Business Bureau Integrity award winner for 2019. 

Can you see their work on any buildings or homes?  Do they have personal recommendations from past clients?  It’s not enough to make sure the business has experience.  Ensuring the people installing the roof have the knowledge and skills to do a professional job is key. A roofing company in Baton Rouge that doesn't have work to show you is a red flag.

Does the business have certification, licensing, and insurance (worker’s comp and liability)? Professional roofing companies in Baton Rouge will have all of those things.  Making sure the employees will be taken care of if they get injured on your job is important, and making sure the company has backup if they damage existing property accidentally is good business practice and beneficial to you. 

Lastly, checking with the Better Business Bureau to see how the businesses you’ve gotten bids from fare with previous customers is a great way to check their reliability.  Do they have an A+ rating? Do they have complaints against them?
