How Are Commercial Roof Quotes Made: Our 5-Step Process

Feb 20, 2020

When it comes to a commercial or industrial roofing project, there can be a lot of uncertainty as to how much the job will cost. Whether you’re in need of flat roof repairs, a flat roof replacement, or flat roof maintenance, it can be overwhelming when it comes time to crunch numbers.

Needless to say, if your commercial or industrial roof needs work, making that initial investment is necessary – even if it’s more than you’re willing to spend. After all, your property’s roofing system is the first line of defense, and putting on a new roof will be one of the biggest investments you make. That also makes it a big risk; so asking for a breakdown of costs is not unreasonable.

So, if you’re interested in learning more about how commercial roofing quotes are made, and the process we go through at Crown Industrial Roofing, continue reading. Our guide below will help you separate fact from fiction, and ensure that your next roofing project goes smoothly from start to finish.

STEP 1: Assessing Our Leads

At Crown Industrial Roofing, we receive many leads, whether through our website, email, phone, or client referrals. Our first step in the quoting process is determining whether or not our leads are qualified to work with us.

During your initial inquiry, we’ll assign you to an expert commercial roofing contractor to determine if we can move forward with the roofing project.

Our roofing contractors will ask you the following questions:

  • Where is the location of your property?
  • What is the size of your property?
  • What sort of roofing issues are you experiencing (if any)?
  • What kind of solution are you looking for?
  • What is your estimated timeline for completion?

Although you may not know the answers to all of these questions, we can still get a better idea of the scope of work after speaking with you. Additionally, we have the ability to search your roof with satellite images to get a better idea of the roof’s condition and prepare more thoroughly for a roof assessment. Once we qualify the lead, we will set up an initial no obligation roofing inspection.

STEP 2: Commercial Roofing Inspection at No Obligation

At Crown Industrial Roofing, we pride ourselves on getting the job done right the first time. The best way to do this is by performing an initial roofing inspection that will help us determine not only the roof’s current condition, but also the right roofing solution for your property. All commercial roofing inspections are performed by a highly trained roofing contractor who will come out to examine your roof first-hand.

Conducting an initial roofing inspection is of utmost importance because our expert roofing contractors must, first, be able to spot problem areas on the roof. Commercial roofing inspections will also help prepare our roofing contractors for the specific job at hand; they will be better able to make sure they have all the necessary equipment, roofing materials, etc. they need to perform the job safely and properly.

STEP 3: Client-Contractor Meeting

Meeting with our clients in person is another way we ensure that you are getting exactly what you want. It’s important to us that we hear from you and what you want to see in your commercial roofing quote.

Some things we’ll discuss during this meeting are:

  • The problems we’ve detected on your roof & solution options
  • Your budget considerations
  • Project timeline
  • Any other special considerations (permits, property tenants, equipment, noise regulations and other building code ethics, etc.)

 STEP 4: Infrared Flat Roof Scanning & Surveying

If we suspect areas of trapped moisture on the roof after providing the initial roofing inspection, we will call for a more thorough roof survey with the use of infrared technology. Why? Areas with trapped moisture can only be detected through our state-of-the-art infrared scanning technology, which is why our professional infrared surveys can provide you the information you need to better protect your investment.

STEP 5: Create & Deliver Proposal

After creating the proposal based on the provided scope of work, we will deliver it to you in-person. At Crown Industrial Roofing, we have invested in the latest quality software systems to help prepare accurate quote packages for our customers. We understand that no two roofing projects are alike, which is why our proposal packages are customized to the individual needs of your roofing project. We stand behind our work and will make sure that you don’t overpay for services you don’t need.
