When it comes to your commercial property, few investments are as important as the roof—especially in states like Ohio, Indiana and Michigan, known for their seasonal extremes. While an inferior roof will bring nothing but worry, headaches, and financial loss, a durable, long-lasting roof will protect your products and services for years to come. Here are the most important questions to consider when hiring a commercial roofing contractor.
A roof is only as good as the materials used to build it, which is why you should research the types of roofing systems your potential contractor installs. Also consider how long the contractor has been installing the product. How well do they understand the ins-and-outs of the roofing system? Do they have a tested strategy and plan for installation that maximizes quality while minimizing your downtime?
When you buy a commercial roofing system, you’re not just buying a product–you’re purchasing a service. When weighing options, consider how potential contractors fulfill these criteria:
When you buy a roofing system, your relationship with the contractor does not end with installation; in fact, it is just the beginning. You want to ensure you can trust the company for more than 15 years. Therefore, the most critical question to ask is whether this company going to deliver on their promises 5, 10, or 20 years from now.
Ask around. If you own a building, you most likely know other people who own buildings, too, and you should consider them your local experts.
