Hello there! Randy Parish here, from Parish Roofing Solutions. Today, we're going on an adventure! We're diving into the world of roofing estimates. Don't worry, I'll be with you every step of the way. Here are some important questions you need to ask a roofer and why they matter. Let's get started!

Question 1: "Are you licensed and insured?"

Now, this is super important. You want to make sure whoever is working on your roof is a pro, not some random person with a ladder. Having a license means they know what they're doing. And insurance? That's for your peace of mind, knowing you're not on the hook if something goes wrong.

Question 2: "Do you offer a warranty?"

You wouldn't buy a car without a warranty, right? Same with your roof. Ask about both the manufacturer's warranty (for the materials) and the contractor's warranty (for the work).

Question 3: "Can you provide references?"

The best way to find out if a roofer is good? Talk to people they've worked with before. Any roofer worth their salt will happily share references. It shows they stand by their work.

Question 4: "How will you protect my property?"

Roofs are big. And changing them can be a messy job. So, ask how they'll keep your yard, your shrubs, and your home safe.

Question 5: "What happens if the weather turns bad?"

Roofing is an outdoor job. Sometimes the weather doesn't play nice. Make sure your roofer has a plan for sudden rain or a storm. You don't want to end up with a half-done roof when the clouds roll in!

Now, don't be shy about asking these questions. It's your home and you want the best for it. That's why we, at Parish Roofing Solutions, welcome them. We're here to make sure you feel confident and ready for your roofing adventure.

Remember, knowledge is power. And now, my friend, you've got the power to make the best choice for your roofing needs. Here's to your journey towards a strong, safe, and durable roof over your head!

You know it’s time to find a roofing contractor, but with so many options, how do you decide who to go with? Here are three questions to help you decide which companies are reputable and which you should avoid when your roof does need to be replaced.

Important: Are you local?

This is important, because, in Texas, we don’t have any licensing for roofers. So people can come from anywhere and replace your roof. If you ever have an issue and need someone to come look at or fix your roof, they’ll be gone. And working on a roof someone else installed is very hard - we go in just as blind as you do!  You want someone who can come out and fix their own work because they’ll have a good idea of what needs to be done.

Important: Who is the point of contact?

Sometimes, you’ll find a company where the owner will take the time to talk directly to you.  That’s how we do it at Parish Roofing Solutions. That way you know you’ll get the best information and there won’t be any confusion over what is promised or what your expectations are. But most of the time, you’ll end up with a salesman as your point of contact.  That’s fine, but you want to make sure they can answer your questions. It’s a good idea to ask them to just walk you through the process, so you can gauge whether they really know what’s going to happen or not.  You can also ask simple questions like, “how long does a roof last?”  If they can’t walk you through these basic questions, you should look for someone else.
