Having roofing work done on your home can be a costly project. When you’re looking for a roofing contractor to handle this work, make sure you get answers to the following questions.
How Long Have You Been in Business?
Choosing an experienced roofing contractor who has been in business for several years rather than a new contractor helps ensure quality roofing services. Perry Roofing has been providing reliable roofing services in Gainseville, Florida for over 46 years.
Are You Licensed?
Hiring a roofing contractor with a valid license is important to ensure that they’re knowledgeable and responsible. Working with a licensed roofer can also provide you with protection from legal liability. Perry Roofing has FL License #CCC042888.
What Types of Roofing Systems Do You Offer?
Roofing contractors typically offer more than one type of roofing system, but it’s important to make sure they offer the best system for your home. At Perry Roofing, we offer high-quality asphalt shingles, stone-coated steel, and tile roofing.

Who, Exactly, Will Be Installing My Roof? Are They Employees or Subcontractors?
Some roofing contractors bring in subcontractors to handle roofing work, which can result in poor quality. At Perry Roofing, we have our own crews of legal employees who handle all roofing work, with most having more than 5 years of experience with us.
What Training and Experience Does the Crew Have? Have They Been Trained by the Manufacturer of My Roofing?
Roofing contractors should have a crew of well-trained and experienced employees who have had training from the manufacturer to ensure proper installation. All of our crews have received this kind of training, as well as regular training on correct installation methods, safety, and efficiency.
Do You Provide Estimates?
Roofing contractors should be willing to provide you with a detailed estimate on roofing work, so you can make sure it fits your budget. Perry Roofing provides customers with free estimates.
How Long Does a Project Usually Take?
Roofing companies should give you an estimated timeframe, so you can arrange to be out of the house if needed. At Perry Roofing, our re-roofing projects typically take one to four days from start to finish.
Do You Offer Any Type of Coverage?
Reliable roofing contractors have licensing and insurance to provide customers with peace of mind. As a licensed and insured roofing contractor, we can and will make it right in the unlikely event that something goes wrong with your project.
What Are the Warranties?
Roofing contractors have different kinds of warranties, such as workmanship warranties. These warranties might help cover some or all of the cost if repairs are needed, but it’s important to know the types of warranties you’re getting beforehand. Perry Roofing has a total system warranty for each residential roof we install, as well as a 5-year workmanship warranty and a 15-year, 130-mph wind warranty on architectural shingles.
Do You Offer Finance Options?
Financing options can help make roofing work more affordable for your budget. Not all roofing contractors offer these. Perry Roofing offers financing through Acorn Finance and Sunlight Financial, although your local bank might offer the best rates.
How Will You Protect My Property During Work?
Dependable roofing contractors should take steps to protect your property from damage while they work and clean up afterward. Perry Roofing uses tarps to protect plants and Equipter roofing trailers to collect roof debris. We also clean up afterward to reduce the risk of damage or injuries.
