What to Ask Your Prospective Roofer’s References

After checking your potential roofer’s qualifications – license, bond and insurance – and manufacturer certifications, the next step is to ask the pro for a list of references. If you want to learn more about a given company and how the team actually works, talking to suppliers and previous clients should provide you with a clearer and more accurate idea. Here are some important questions to ask.

roofer references

1. Are their most recent clients happy with the work? When getting client references from your prospective roofers, make sure to ask for ones from the last five projects. These names may or may not be included in the original list they gave you.

There are many reasons why this can happen. One negative feedback may just be a fluke, but you’ll want to watch out for a string of recent roofing projects done poorly. Still, you should call them to confirm. Here’s what to ask:

  • Were you satisfied with the results of your residential roofing project?
  • Has the project run over the budget? If yes, then how much?
  • Would you consider using them again?

2. What do their suppliers have to say about the roofer? The financial solvency of your potential roofers is important, so make sure to ask for at least three references from their long-time material suppliers. If the roofer doesn’t pay their bills, you may end up with a lien on your property or be forced to pay the bills yourself. You should ask the suppliers the following:

  • How long have you sold them materials?
  • Would you consider hiring them to work on your roof?
  • Do they pay the bills on time?

The answers should give you fiscal clues as to how the roofer does business. Make sure to listen carefully and read between the lines to determine how they actually feel about the roofer.

I just wanna give a shout out to one of your guys who jumped out of vehicle to help me push my van out from 62 onto coker Butte this morning awesome job and thank you so much..

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

Matt Stone

Excellent experience, prompt and professional estimate, showed up on schedule (actually a day early) and did a thorough and complete job. All personnel were professional,polite and great at their jobs. Would recommend to anyone.

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
