These are requirements home owners must ask and check for in the Province of Alberta. If a roofing contractor asks for any money up front or a down payment prior to doing your roof, then they must hold a valid Alberta Government License to do so. You as the home owners can also ask what their safety policy is as well. A defensive contractor who scoffs as your requests or delays in getting you their documents should raise some red flags. If any other red flags appear, trust your gut and walk away.
We cannot stress this enough, Liability Insurance is very important. Your roofing contractor is required to have insurance and his sub-contractors are also required to have insurance. Ask for copies of their insurance. Calling their insurance broker (policy holder) to confirm their account, what the amounts are and to confirm that the type of work being done on your house is covered by their policies. This document is not here to scare you, but just ensure that your roof/renovation goes smoothly and as comfortable as possible.
Home owners should always get a minimum of three quotes/estimates unless you know the roofing contractor or one has been strongly recommended to you. Even if they are strongly recommended, ask them the questions above for peace-of-mind. In Alberta it is strongly recommended to search the Better Business Bureau (BBB) of any roofing contractors doing work on your home. It does not cost much for a contractor to belong to the BBB, and if they are not a member, be cautious.
