With Bay Area Roofing Contractors in High Demand, Choose Your Roofer Carefully
A qualified commercial roofing contractor will ensure that your building’s roofing is installed and/or repaired properly. Unfortunately, not all roofing contractors have your best interests in mind or the experience to do every job as it should be done. Here are some tips to help you find the right company.
1. Due your due diligence.
Before you select a roofing company, learn about the reputations of each roofing contractor you are considering by asking for references and reading online reviews from unbiased sources.
2. Don’t let price decide for you.
The lowest bidder is not necessarily the best contractor. Don’t let price be your only consideration. Choosing the best price may lead you to need roof repairs or replacement earlier than if you choose a more expensive option that may include better quality materials.
3. Demand a written contract.
Contracts ensure that both parties understand and agree upon the details of the project. Never agree to work with a commercial contractor who won’t provide a written contract or one that provides a very brief contract that fails to accurately and comprehensively outline the scope of work to be completed.
4. Don’t pay up front.
A reputable roofing company won’t ask you to pay the full price of the project up front. Instead, you should deposit a predetermined percentage of the payment at the beginning of the project and pay the rest after the job is completed and you are satisfied with the results.
5. Ask for proof of licensing and insurance.
Ask a commercial roofing company to show that it is licensed, insured and bonded before you sign a contract, failing to check for insurance can leave you in a very bad situation should things go wrong and your property is damaged or destroyed.
