Depending on the size of your building's roof, replacing it could be an expensive proposition. To ensure your money is well spent, hiring a quality commercial roofing contractor is essential.
If you hire a bad contractor, the roofers who work on your building could leave it in worse condition than before. If you need a roofing contractor for your building, below are tips for selecting one who will do the job right:
Be Sure the Contractor Is Licensed, Bonded, and Insured
Unless a roofing company is licensed to perform construction, bonded to protect you against property theft, and insured to protect you against property damage or injury, it should not set foot on your property. Regardless of the experience or low price a company offers, if it is not licensed, bonded, and insured, hiring it is simply too risky.
Insist on a Contractor's Warranty
Roofing materials are ensured by a manufacturer's warranty, but roofing work is ensured by a contractor's warranty. If a roof is improperly installed, and the contractor did not provide a warranty, the building owner can have an uphill battle to receive compensation for the faulty work. As some building owners find out the hard way, never hire a contractor who does not offer a contractor's warranty. anti-slip
Evaluate Customer References
A bad roof will be found out eventually. It will leak, buckle, and show other signs of poor work. When commercial roofers perform poor work, their customers are soon aware of it. This makes customer feedback an invaluable resource for assessing the quality of the contractor's work. If the references of a contractor are dissatisfied with their roof job or sub-par labor, and extenuating circumstances were not at play, the contractor is probably to blame.
