You should not give any initial deposit or sign a contract if you will not hire the roofer. If you have chosen a roofer, then you should get a copy of the contract before they start working. Do not hire a roofer if he requires you to pay for the entire roofing service even before he starts working on your roof. You should only pay the remaining balance when the job is completely finished. You should pay the roofer with your bank card or with a check than with cash.
