Choosing the Right Contractor
Updated: Oct 12, 2019
We know getting a new roof can be a daunting challenge for Property and Business Owners alike. You want to make sure you are getting the most value for your money, and want to know you are getting a quality roof system. Here are 4 tips for choosing the right Roofing Contractor for your next roof project: 1. Do Your Research As a Property or Business Owner, knowledge is power. Do some research into the various types of roof systems, to know what you want. When choosing a Roofing Contractor, check Reviews, BBB Accreditation, References, and Licensing. Make sure the Contractor you decide to go with has the proper credentials before making your decision. Another thing to research, is the material manufacturer that the Contractor wants to use. Not all Roofing Products are created equal.
2. Shop Around We recommend getting at least 3 different quotes from Contractors before making a decision. Sometimes, you may be able to get a better deal on your Roof Project. Some companies have a higher overhead, which translates into the Contract Price. In contrast, be weary of Low Bidding Contractors. The Bid Price may be the lowest, because corners may be cut, or the quality of work may be lacking. At the end of the day, it is your decision who you choose. 3. Ask Questions Don't be afraid to ask your Contractor questions. Any reputable Roofing Company will be transparent and honest. If they don't want to answer questions, don't do business with them. 4. Warranties One of the most important aspects of getting a new roof, is protecting your investment. You should seek to get a Manufacturer NDL Warranty with your installation. Typical of the major roofing manufacturers, they only allow Contractors certified with their product to give out NDL Warranties, which translates into a quality roof installation. After an installation is complete, material manufacturers will send out a representative to inspect the work and issue a warranty. As a result, choosing a Contractor that can give you an NDL Warranty will protect your investment in the long run. Those are our 4 Tips for Choosing a Commercial Roofing Contractor.
