You should always have a contract in writing any time you hire a contractor. If you want a specific warranty, then it should be stated in the contract. If it's repairs of leaks on a slate roof, then the contractor should warrant that the repaired area will not leak after they have completed the repairs, and if it does, that they will return at their own expense and complete the repairs. We do not include a written warranty in our contracts unless it's a new installation or unless it's specifically requested, but we warrant our work unconditionally and will never charge an extra fee for a call-back. For this reason, we attempt to always do the job correctly and completely the first time, which minimizes call-backs.

Once I hire a contractor to make repairs on my roof, what kind of warranty can I expect? I want to discuss this with the contractor before the work begins but am not sure what to ask for? I.e. should I get something in writing? Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
