Did you recently acquire a commercial property that needs a new roof? Maybe you have had your office building for a few years, but you know it’s in need of some roof maintenance? It sounds like you need a commercial roofing contractor.
As you narrow down your search for the right roofer, here are some questions you may want to ask.
1. What are your credentials and experience?
Verify that the company specializes in commercial roofing, and ask for examples of their past work.
2. How long have you been in business?
Years of service isn’t a make or break factor. However, it can give you a clue about how the community has responded to their workmanship. Businesses that do poor work or who aren’t professional don’t tend to last long.
3. What type of materials do you use?
A commercial roof or roofing repairs requires a certain skill set and quality materials. Ask about the types of roofs they install, and then do a little online research to see if you can dig up consumer reviews on those products.
4. What’s your availability?
When you need a new roof quickly, you don’t want to wait around several months. Your building could sustain damage by letting the roof go. Therefore, make sure the roofer will be able to do the job sooner rather than later.
5. Can you provide a written quote?
Be sure to get an estimate in writing so you can compare the details to other companies. Make sure the quote includes all possible costs (materials, labor, incidentals, etc.).
