5 Questions to Ask Commercial Roofing Contractors

Hiring a commercial roofing contractor is a major decision, a decision that will impact you now and for years to come. If you’re having trouble selecting among the commercial contractors in your area, we encourage you to ask these 5 critical questions.

5 Questions to Ask Commercial Roofing Contractors1) Are you licensed and insured?

While this may seem obvious, it’s not uncommon for property owners to forget to ask. Do not simply assume the commercial roofing contractors you contact are licensed and insured, do your homework and ask for proof. This will protect your investment and ensure you’re selecting a dependable company.

2 ) Can you help me establish a budget?

When planning for a commercial roofing project, most property owners must first establish a budget and gain approval for the expenditure. Be sure to ask the roofing contractors you’re considering if they can assist you in establishing a budget. This is also a great way to assess their level customer service and to gain an insight into what it will be like to work together.  

3 ) Should I replace or repair my existing commercial roof?

Not all roof damage warrants a full replacement. Be sure to ask each contractor you contact if they are willing to assess the current state of your roof and determine your best course of action. If for example, a small repair can add several years to the lifespan of your roof, and you only intend to own the property for a short time, a repair is probably your best route. However, if a repair will only delay a full replacement for a short period of time and you plan to hold onto the property, your total cost of ownership on a new roof is typically lower. Be sure to discuss this with your roofing professional.

4 ) Can you provide references?

Asking for references is another simple yet critical step that many property owners fail to complete. Any reputable commercial roofing contractor will be able to provide several references. In addition, check out their online reviews. What are past customers saying online? Does their online reputation align with the feedback you have received from the references they provided?

5 ) How long will my project take from start to finish?

Be sure to find out from the very beginning how much time you should allow for your project to be completed. Weather delays can impact installation, but an experienced roofing company will account for this when providing a projected timeline.
