Roofing 101
 
i'm pretty close to deciding on a roofing contractor to get my roof replaced.

what are some things that i should know and bring up with the contractor? the only thing i know for certain is that i won't be getting metal shingles, for cost reason. also, i will be adding ridge vents to the house, breezeway and garage.

Work samples, contractor's fundamental understanding of ventilation, identification of any areas that need revision to ensure full term roof life, description of consumable used in new roof, warranty, any additional certifications or warranty previsions from the manufacturer, etc, etc.

Last fall there was a great post regarding what to ask a roofing contractor. I can't find it now, but maybe someone else knows the one I mean and can post a link.
