When looking for a roofing company to service the roof of your
commercial building, you need to make sure they are a trusted and experienced
contractor. Below are several factors to keep in mind when choosing a roofing
Before looking any further into a roofing
company, you need to be sure they are insured and licensed. Every roofing
contractor needs to be licensed in their state of operation. Licensing shows
that the contractor is a real company that must comply with codes within the state
It's smart to work with a contractor that has
both liability and worker's compensation insurance. Liability insurance is
meant to cover any property damage in the event that the roofers cause damage
to your building. Worker's compensation insurance will cover any medical
expenses of a roofer who is injured on the job, so you are not held liable for
Depending on the scope of a commercial job, you also want to make sure a roofing
contractor is bonded for it. The term bonded means a bonding
company has funds set aside for the roofing contractor's customers in the event
a customer files a claim against them.
A great way to check their licensing,
insurance, and bonding is by looking at their rating with the Better Business
Bureau. You can also ask the roofing contractor directly for proof of licensing
and insurance prior to signing a contract.
A well recommended and reputable company is
one of the best ways to go when looking for a roofing contractor. If you
research reviews for restaurants, you definitely need to do the same for
roofing contractors. If you know anyone else responsible for commercial
buildings, ask for any references for roofing companies so you can get a few
ideas of who to research or who to steer clear of. To find reviews, look on the
roofing contractor's website for customer testimonials to get an understanding
of their customer service quality, workmanship, and pricing. Google Reviews is another excellent source for seeing specific reviews.

You want to be sure that your roofing
contractor will know what they're doing so you do not end up with a low-quality
repair. First, be sure that the roofing contractor offers commercial roofing
services. Residential roofs and commercial roofs are very different, meaning
the materials, process, and repairs are not easily transferable skills. By
having a roofing contractor experienced in commercial roofing, you will get a
well-equipped contractor that can handle your repair.

If the roofing contractor does not offer any
warranties, this can be a major red flag. Many roofing material manufacturers
offer warranties on their products if they are installed by a qualified roofing
contractor. Also, the roofing company itself should offer a level of warranty
on their workmanship.
