Commercial Roofing Damage

commercial roofing damageThe roof that presides atop your commercial building acts as its first line of protection from Mother Nature’s elements and represents a significant financial investment. Your roof is also the most vulnerable part of your building and is daily exposed to elements that foster deterioration and decay, increasing the likelihood that your roof—and everything below it—may become damaged.

When commercial roof damage occurs, do you know where to turn for quality repairs that are performed correctly and to code?

The Scammer’s Creed

From roofing contractors who aren’t as experienced as they claim to be to outright scammers looking to cheat you, there are plenty of individuals out there looking to make quick money at your expense.

One common scam in the roofing industry relates to “storm chasers.” We’re not talking about scientists who track tornadoes in order to study them. Roofing storm chasers follow storms across the country to profit in places where a big storm has hit and local roofing companies are overrun with more repair requests than they can accommodate. Of course, since they aren’t interested in sticking around long-term, there is no incentive for them to make sure the roofs serviced last any longer than when they collect their checks.

Of course it’s just as common for a residential contractor to misrepresent themselves as a commercial expert when given the opportunity. There are countless types of commercial roofs out there and it takes many years of experience to correctly service them all. Because of the difficulty of commercial roofing and what is at stake, it’s crucial you choose a company with direct factory training and the knowledge needed to service your roof correctly the first time while insurance is paying for it.

Problem Solved
