Installing a new roof is a costly affair and you would need to be careful about choosing the right contractor. Talk to friends, family, neighbors and colleagues about their experience with roofing contractors and the materials they used to help you decide on the material you'd like and that would be appropriate for your roof.
These people could provide valuable insight, which will help you, decide on roofing materials like a cedar shake alternative and contractors.
You'll want to contact at least 3 to 5 contractors and have a personal interview with them before deciding on awarding the project. Evaluate the contractor based on their past experience and expertise. You can also ask for referrals and talk to the ones provided to find out about their past experience with the contractor and with a specific roofing material like synthetic cedar shake.
Get the estimates in writing and ask the contractor to include all details pertaining to warranty information. After you have made the decision on which contractor to award the contract to, you'll want to get all the details of the contract in a written form so that no dispute arises regarding the terms and conditions of the contract.
