Are you in the process of selecting a commercial roofing contractor? Before you commit, it's important to understand that not all commercial roofing contractors are created equal. While there is no foolproof way to distinguish good contractors from bad ones, there are some important questions that you should ask when you're selecting a contractor. The answers to these questions will help you qualify a contractor and ensure that you make the best possible decision.
The National Roofing Contractors Association recommends pre-qualifying commercial contractors on a project-to-project or annual basis. One of the first things to check for is a permanent business address, telephone number, tax ID number and business license. All professional commercial contractors should have this, along with proof of insurance, readily available for your review.
Next up, ask the contractor if his / her company is a member of a local, state, regional or national industry association. This typically signals whether or not a contractor keeps up with the latest developments and issues within the industry.
Remember that safety comes first. A commercial is only as good as the workers who install the roof, so when selecting a roofing contractor you should ask what types of safety training the company provides to their workers, with and what industry programs they have attended.
Finally, look for a roofing company that offers client references and is eager to show you a portfolio of completed projects.
