Choosing the Best Commercial Roofing Contractor

Your commercial roof is not only a vital component of your building, it represents a huge financial investment; not just anyone should be hired to work on it. You may feel at a loss regarding where to start and what to look for when it comes to choosing the best commercial roofing contractor. We’re here to help you through the process.

Separating the Wheat from the Chaff

best-commercial-roofing-contractor-comparisonThere are a lot of roofing contractors out there, no doubt about it. When you own or manage a commercial building, part of your job is finding one that is reliable and properly qualified.

Choosing an inexperienced contractor to work on your commercial roof can have huge repercussions. If you hire a roofer who mainly works on residential roofs, for instance, you could be in trouble straight out of the gate, because servicing a commercial roof is an entirely different ballgame and requires specialized knowledge and experience that a full-time residential roofer on his own simply doesn’t have.

Hiring a roofer who doesn’t have a very long history of working in your area is also a risky proposition, as their staying power is unproven. If your $50,000+ roof fails two years down the road, that contractor may be long gone—and you may be left in the lurch.

Letting an inexperienced person do work on your roof almost always leads to problems down the road. What’s more, hiring an inexperienced contractor can cause your roof warranty to be invalidated. No matter how you look at it, it’s a bad idea to hire anyone but a licensed, experienced, tried-and-true professional.

Important Questions to Ask

When shopping among roofing companies, the following are some questions you should always find the answers to before shaking hands and saying, “You’re hired”:

  • Are they fully licensed and insured?
  • Do they have adequate experience working on commercial roofs specifically?
  • How long have they been in business?
  • What is their reputation with local customers?
  • Are they certified by their product manufacturers?
  • Do they guarantee their work in writing with the ability to back it up?
  • Do they offer non-prorated warranties you can trust?
  • Do they belong to and have endorsements from reputable industry associations?

If any one of the answers to these important questions turn out to be unfavorable, it’s probably best to say “pass” and continue your search until you find a roofing company that does meet this criteria.

A Directory of Experts

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could just snap your fingers and a listing of pre-verified roofing contractors in your area would suddenly appear? As it happens, there is such a resource that will point you to verified roofing experts near you—and all you have to do is call or click to meet one of them in person.

Through the Choice Roof Contractor Group, a trusted nationwide roofing association, you can search among commercial roofing experts that operate in your specific area. Our membership represents some of the very best roofers in the business, and they are also among the only contractors in the United States that offer a “Lifetime Service Guarantee.” This means someone knowledgeable and verified will always be available to service your roof after a business relationship has been established.

One of the biggest nightmares for a building owner can be having roof problems crop up later and finding out that the contractor who did the work is no longer in business in that area and is, in fact, nowhere to be found anywhere. When you work with an endorsed member, such an occurrence is never an issue. If the original contractor who worked on your roof goes out of business or is unavailable for some other reason, you will always have the services of another Choice Roof Contractor available to you. No more playing “Where’s Waldo?” trying to track down a fly-by-night roofing contractor, because someone will always here for you.

  1. It helped a lot when you mentioned how you should look for a roofer that is fully licensed. I understand that taking the time to verify things is important. Personally, I would also want to take the time to read online reviews when looking for a good roofer.

  2. I didn’t know all of these. My brother’s restaurant roof has a hole in it. My dad suggested having a commercial roofing contractor and shared this article with him.

  3. I like how you mentioned that there are services that would be able to help you search for available and reputable commercial roofing contractors in an area. That would be great for businesses since it would give them the convenience of easy access to these services. Personally, If I were a business owner, I would have tried using the BBB and other internet websites to look for potential contractors while looking into their reviews. Thanks for the informative article on how to best choose a commercial roofing contractor!

  4. I appreciate the tip figure out if a roofing contractor will have endorsements from reputable industry associations. If I had a commercial building that needed work on the roof done, I would want to make sure that I was working with a recognized roofing expert. When it comes to commercial roofing services, I would be sure to see how long they were in business and check their reputation with past customers before working with them.

  5. It’s interesting to learn that it would be important for commercial businesses to only get experienced commercial roofing contractors as a residential one wouldn’t be enough to cut it as your article mentioned. That is something that had me surprised as I have always thought that they are one of the same. As important as it would be for commercial businesses, I’ll be sure to get only residential roofing companies for my house needs too to avoid potential problems. Thanks!

  6. Thanks for your tip to choose a roofer that is both licensed and insured. I like how you said that they should have a lot of experience working in this field. My husband and I want to find skilled roofers to replace some shingles on our roof.
