Communication is key with contractors, especially when you are getting work done on your roof since it is one of the most important parts of your home. This should go without saying, but the more effectively you can communicate your requirements to the roofer you are working with, the smoother the project will be. Even if you hire the most experienced and competent roofing company in the world, but you are not able to get your needs across, then the results will most certainly be unsatisfactory.
With this in mind, here are a few tips on how to communicate effectively with your roofing professionals.
1. Give All the Necessary Information
Once you have decided on which roofing company to work with, be sure to provide all the necessary information regarding your old roof. If you have old documents, warranty information and insurance documents, it is important to hand them over to your roofer before the actual work begins. Don’t forget to give all the required personal information like phone numbers and email addresses so that your roofer can get in touch with you when necessary.
2. Let Your Roofer Know When You Are Available
You would be surprised how many problems arise during a roofing project just because the homeowner was not able to take a phone call. These gaps in communication can be easily avoided if you let your roofer know when you are available. It is also important to provide your roofer with an alternate contact person just in case you are too busy to take a call during an emergency.
3. Communicate Often
You may be worried about pestering your contractor with more calls than is necessary. A good roofer should always be ready to answer any questions you have regarding your roofing project no matter how small. Do not be afraid to call your roofer as often as necessary to make sure that everything is being done according to your satisfaction.
