Vetting a Commercial Roofer? Ask These Questions

When your business or commercial building needs new roofing, you cannot go to just any roofing company looking for answers. You’ll want to choose a commercial roofer who knows what they are doing. As you prepare yourself to call different commercial roofers for quotes on your property, you will want to make sure to ask these questions:

  • Are You Certified? A commercial roofer who is certified to install one or more roofing types is always going to be a bonus when it comes to your business or commercial property. If they can name the different roofing types they are certified to install, and it includes the materials you need for your roof, then you will be off to a good start.
  • What Kinds of Commercial Roofing Have You Done? Another important question you’ll want to ask is where they’ve installed other commercial roofing. If you are talking to a commercial roofer who only has experience with one type of roofing construction or they can’t seem to name a place reliably, you may want to reconsider. Alternatively, if they have been hired to do commercial roofing around town and can name places for referral, you might just be in business.
  • Are You Insured? Insurance is an essential part of hiring a commercial roofer. Not only does it protect them, but it also protects you! If you’ve found a commercial roofer who quotes you a reasonable price, but they don’t have the right insurance coverage, you’ll want to move on to a company that does.
