Searching for the right roofing company takes some homework and patience. When you need to find a reliable and qualified commercial roofer, even more of your investments are at stake with multi-family units and/or commercial properties. So, you may wonder which criteria to use to choose the right company. Read on to learn what to look for in your commercial roofing contractor.
Licensed, Bonded and Insured
As a commercial property owner or manager, you are accustomed to working with many different service providers for cooling, heating, landscaping and exteriors. If something goes wrong during a work order or project, such as a work-related accident or property damage, do you know who is responsible?
If you said the contractor or service provider, you would be correct only if such companies were properly licensed, bonded and insured — including liability and worker’s comp insurance. Otherwise, you could be held financially liable for property damages, medical bills and lost income due to missed work.
You must check to ensure your commercial roofing company is legally and adequately licensed, bonded and insured.
In-House Roofers, No Subcontractors
Work with a commercial roofing company that has a fully trained staff of qualified roofers. All roofing projects, including preventive maintenance, should be performed by a permanent team of employees — no subcontractors. In this way, you are assured that the folks working on your commercial properties take great pride in their work and are held to a higher standard than “sub” or temporary workers.
You literally have your pick of hundreds of commercial roofing contractors to choose from in Sarasota and the surrounding areas. Why settle for anyone but the best? Look for a commercial roofing contractor with a stellar reputation on social media networks, customer reviewing sites, the Better Business Bureau and your colleagues, friends and family.
Offer Maintenance Contracts
The roofing systems on your commercial properties protect building structure and interior systems. If you have a problem with your roof, you will have problems inside your properties. Only work with a commercial roofer that offers comprehensive commercial roofing preventive maintenance plans.
