The market is full of unlicensed handyment that offer deep discounted roofing services, but that cost savings could end up being disastrous. The roofing company you hire should have the proper licensing, they will provide the information along with the estimate. Licensed contractors are your best resource as they'll be knowledgable in industry wide best practices, including permitting guidelines, roof maintenance and roof repair.

Roofing companies are responsible for keeping insurance up to date. In case of any accident, this should include workers comp (coverage if a contractor is injured on the job) and liability insurance (protects your home if a contractor damages it while completing work). Hiring a company without proper documentation can put you both at risk, to protect your home and yourself, always ask for proof of insurance up front. 

Online reviews can help you to determine whether a company is legitimate and how satisfied customers are after their service. Don't guage your opinion on just stars, read through the reviews to find out specific information. For example, is there a trend of work being completed correctly? Do multiple reviewers complain about unprofessionalism? Are they known for quality workmanship and reputable service? Check online reviews from past customers before choosing a contractor, this will help you get an idea of what to expect. 

A written contract protects you as the homeowner. Your contract should clearly outline payment schedules, roofing materials being used, a list of subcontractors and an estimated start and end date. Make sure it includes details about current roof and inspection of new roof (or repair work on current roof) Further, the contract should also include who is responsible for the cleanup, and any damages to property or your neighbor’s that may occur during the work.
