Did you recently acquire a commercial building in need of repair? Or maybe your existing office building is ready for a roof replacement? Either way, you find yourself in need of a commercial roofing contractor. But just how do you go about finding one that’s worth the investment?
Consider these tips from Illinois roofing experts, HC Anderson Roofing Company, Inc.
1. Gather references.
Ask local business owners you trust for recommendations on local roofing companies. Be sure to also pay attention if they give words of warning. You may also want to check service-review websites for highly ranked contractors. From there, put together a short list of companies you want to consider.
2. Do your research.
Take your list, and look each roofing company up online. Verify their credentials, find out more about their services, read customer reviews, and get a feel for their level of professionalism and customer service. Also, make sure they specialize in commercial roofing.
3. Ask for written quotes.
Choose at least three commercials roofers to interview, and get an on-site consultation from each one. Be sure to get a written quote from each contractor that not only outlines the project cost, but also details any policies, additional fees, or contingencies possible. One thing to pay special attention to is the materials used. If it’s not clear in the quote, be sure to ask. You often get what you pay for when it comes to a new roof.
4. Trust your hiring instincts.
After you’ve had a chance to research and to interact with a few contractors, go with the one with whom you feel most comfortable. Pay attention to the bottom line, but be sure to also select someone who is easy to interact with and who makes you feel comfortable.
