Your Roofing contractor should be licensed and should be willing to provide you a proof of their licensed when requested. Before being issued a license, the roofer will need to be in compliance with their state's roofing laws and take an exam to demonstrate their understanding. Some states even require local roofers to complete a certain number of hrs of formal training. Since the requirement for each state might vary, make sure to check with your state's licensing department to get an idea of what documentation your local roofer must have.
2)Ask the Contractor if they are Insured and Bonded A contractor's general liability insurance protects you from damages or injuries that might occur at your property because of the contractor's negligence. The requirement for insurance and bonding varies from state to state and may not be mandatory in all states, so you should first confirm if this is a requirement your nearby roofer must meet in your state.
A worker's compensation insurance is also important for a contractor to have, because worker accidents can happen, and could lead to you being held liable if it happens on your property. this insurance ensures that the contractor's employees are covered, thus absolving you from liability.

This will give you an idea of their experience. Roofers with longer work experience will generally have a broader knowledge and be able to better handle different roof types and structures. This however does not mean that they are more competent, especially if you are dealing with a large roofing company with multiple employees. In this case, it is more relevant that the worker working on your project have the necessary experience. You must also verify the company's tract record of roofing jobs they have successfully completed

Most reputable Roofers do not have a problem with providing you with references. You should also checks a Roofer's online reviews and customer complaints through the Better Business Bureau
Get multiple estimates for your roof replacement project. The estimate should be a written estimate that is simple and easy to read. It should list out the cost, broken down into labor and material cost, how long the project will take once started, warranties and guarantees for both labour and material, cleaning policy(basically, who will clean up the mess after the work is complete or even while the roof work is happening) etc.
If you are unsatisfy with the Company's work, can you terminate the contract, and what happens if you decide to terminate the contract. It's best to address these questions with the contractor, to set the right expectation.
Most reputable contractors will have no problems coming back to fix an issue if it's a result of their work. If a contractor want to charge you for coming back to even check if the issue is a result of their own work, then you should avoid that contractor. It is also important that the company you are dealing with have a good customer service.
If the roofing company uses sub contractors, it's very important that someone from the company is their to supervise the work.
If your roofing company will be providing the materials for your project, make sure the materials are durable, have warranties and are from a trustworthy manufacturer.

The straight answer is no. But here are some other reasons why you should not hire an unlicensed roofer. issues such as property damage due to the roofer's negligence, injuries or even death can occur on your property. A licensed roofer would or should have general liability or at times worker's compensation insurance that can shield you from liability or pay you in case of property damages caused by the roofing company. an unlicensed roofer would not be insured and can leave you vulnerable to lawsuits.
The second point is that licensing is suppose to be an assurance of a Roofer's qualification. To get the licensed, a roofer must go through and pass an examination designed by your state to determine the Roofer's qualification.
Some roofing companies will have their licensed number on their website, you can get the number and validate it on your state's licensing department website.
