How to Find The Right Commercial Roofing Contractor
If you’re a commercial property owner, you know how important maintaining your commercial flat roof can be. Nothing can compromise the integrity of your property faster than industrial roofing damage such as leaks, splits, fractures, or worse, improper installation. With this in mind, finding the right commercial roofing contractor is of utmost importance for maintaining the lifespan of not only your commercial roof, but also your property as a whole.
So, if you’re in need of industrial flat roof repairs, or an entire replacement, consider the following criteria for choosing the right commercial roofing contractor for your peace of mind and investment.
Before hiring a commercial roofing contractor, you must do some background research on whether the company is registered by the government and in good standing with W.S.I.B. Additionally, commercial roofing contractors must be (by law) registered, which is why asking to see their credentials will save you from worrying about any type of legality issue.
One of the biggest mistakes you can make is to hire a commercial roofing contractor that has little, or worse, no experience. When it comes to experience, there are three things to look out for when hiring a commercial roofing company:
(1) long years of working in the industry, which will guarantee credibility and quality of work
(2) a large portfolio of corporate clients
(3) experience in the specific roofing needs for your business or property’s requirements.
Reliable commercial roofing companies should offer a warranty for the work that they will do. If the industrial roofing contractor avoids discussing a warranty or provides minimal (2 years or less) you shouldn’t proceed in the hiring process. Why? Not providing a warranty can mean that the contractor may not deliver a quality commercial roofing system. Additionally, hiring a commercial roofing contractor that uses poor quality materials can end up being costly in the long-run, as they will have to be frequently repaired or replaced entirely.
When looking for an industrial roofing contractor to install or repair your commercial flat roof, always search within your area. For example, if you’re an industrial building owner in Oshawa, Ontario, you should look for a commercial roofing company that’s located within the Greater Toronto Area.
Why should I hire a local industrial roofing company?
The advantage of dealing with local industrial roofing contractors is that they can always be available when needed. At the end of the day, you’ll want to deal with a contractor that will be there to fulfill their promise on the warranty. If the commercial roofing company you hire is out of reach, your warranty could possibly become null and void.
- Insurance Coverage & W.S.I.B.
Always ensure that the commercial roofing company you go with has insurance and is in good standing with W.S.I.B. Installing an industrial roofing system can come with some associated liabilities, which is why you should only hire a commercial roofing company that has proper insurance coverage should any on-the-job injuries occur on your property or premise.
These five tips will go a long way towards helping you choose the best commercial roofing company for your property’s requirements. By doing your due diligence and asking as many questions as you need before hiring your industrial or commercial roofing contractor, you will be able to choose a company that will properly and efficiently install a quality commercial roofing system without giving you any worries.
