What To Look for When Choosing a Roofing Company

what to look for when choosing a roofing company

What to look for when choosing a roofing company is a common question many commercial property owners ask. The short answer is a solidly positive reputation working with the type of roof on your building.

The rest of this blog post will be devoted to the long answer because there are a few more factors owners must factor into the return-on-investment equation when choosing between the many commercial roofing companies. The three points will seem evident for selecting a roofing contractor, but it is also easy to be swayed on price alone, which is not always ideal.

Point 1: A Solid Reputation

A positive recommendation from a fellow property owner is often enough reason to trust a roofing company’s ability to put up a great roof on your premises, especially if the recommendation is part of a quick inspection on your part. However, this recommendation should be substantiated by how long the contractor has been in the trade, doing your type of roof and (especially) working in the region. A commercial roofing specialist who has been building, repairing and replacing roofs for over thirty years in the same area will have a good reputation for excellent skills.

Ask for references and follow them through –happy and disgruntled clients will readily tell the truth about their experience with a roofing company.

Point 2: Licensed for the Work

Working as a roofing contractor is not just about knowledge of trusses and shingles but also about being qualified, licensed and insured for the specific type of roofing work required on your commercial building. Ask for the necessary documentation candidly and check them with the relevant issuing authority and insurer. Make sure the bonded value is sufficient for the risk associated with the job.

A commercial roofing services provider that’s cagey about these license and insurance details obviously has something to hide and must be removed from the list of potential contractors. Nature is tough enough on your roof–no need to add a dodgy contractor to the onslaughts it must face daily.

Point 3: Willingness to Adapt

All roofing contractors find it a joy to do a straightforward job, but most often, there are unique challenges involved in the project. Restricted access, variance in slope or special equipment on the roof are only three examples. A good roofing specialist will always perform an intensive site inspection before committing to a quote for the new roof or the repair of an existing roof and will note any particular deviations from a “standard” roof.

Always choose a roofing contractor who performs a thorough inspection and provides a detailed quote regarding all the work they’ll perform.

The roofing contractor should also be willing to adapt to your business hours. The job must have minimal impact on you and your tenant’s business – indeed, something to discuss before signing the contract for roof repairs.
