Finding the right commercial roofing company for your needs can be time-consuming, frustrating, and worrying. You have to do a ton of research and find the best offer for your business. If you want to narrow down your search and have some key criteria a company should have, we’ve got you covered.
Here are 7 items to help your find the perfect commercial roofing company:
Whether you are dealing with a residential roofing company or a commercial roofing company, your insurance will likely cover some portions of your roof repair. A commercial roofing company should be able to work with you to help file insurance claims. Assistance with these claims and filing make the process easier and less time-consuming. Without this, navigating your insurance can be a pain. When you partner with the right company they can help you understand exactly what your policy covers.
As with any construction job, one of the biggest determining factors is the price. On one hand, you don’t want to go for the lowest bidder as that usually indicates a drop in quality. On the other, you don’t want to be price gouged just for getting your roof fixed. Consider using a commercial roofing company that will explain their pricing to you in detail. They can give you a list of materials they will need and break down the price point by point.
Additionally, heavily consider the warranty a commercial roofing company is offering you. Read the fine print, and make sure they are upfront and clear about the warranty they provide. You don’t want to be 5 years out of a repair only to find more damage, and it not be covered under warranty.
When it comes to choosing the right commercial roofing company don’t settle for less. The company you choose should maintain a level of professionalism from the moment you speak with them. They should maintain that professionalism throughout the project, answering any questions and drawbacks you might have. If this is too much to ask then they probably aren’t the right company for you.
A construction company must have the necessary permits to work on your building. They also must have the necessary permits to work in a certain location. The permits required to work on commercial roofing change from city to city, and from state to state. When considering a commercial roofing company, ask them about their credentials. Make sure they have the necessary permits to work within a given area, and the necessary permits to work on your project.
When choosing the best company for your project, ask about awards and past projects. Consider how they handle job safety and if they can point to any past projects that might be similar to yours.
Construction companies of all types are notorious for taking longer than expected on projects. Sometimes this can be due to bad weather, extensive damage, or unforeseen events. However, sometimes it can be due to just plain greed. When you go looking for the right commercial roofing company for your business, establish a timeline. Some companies can complete repairs in a matter of days, while others will have trouble just keeping you up-to-date. When it comes to commercial projects, you need clear guidelines on when projects should be completed.
When it comes to choosing any service that can cost you thousands of dollars, make sure to do your research. Ask friends, family, and trusted advisors for referrals to companies. Look up reviews of companies online and at the BBB (Better Business Bureau).
The right commercial roofing company for you should have years of experience. Not only with construction projects, but they should have years of experience specifically with roofing and insurance claims. You want a company that can help guide you to making the right decisions for your business and helping you find the right price for your budget. Don’t entrust your business to someone who doesn’t have the experience to see your project through. Leave your business in experienced hands.
