If you want a successful roofing project then you need to choose the right commercial roofing contractor for the job. Your commercial roofing system is large and complicated. Mistakes during a roof repair or roof installation can make your roof more vulnerable to leaks and reduce its performance and life span. Today, Lifetime Roofing explains the top four qualities you need to look for in your commercial roofing contractor:
Licenses – It is incredibly important to ask for your contractor’s license number before working with them. Licenses prove that a contractor is qualified to work on your roofing project. Without them, a contractor cannot guarantee the quality of their work. They are also breaking the law by attempting to work on your roof. A licensed contractor has proven that they are able to follow industry standards and that they know how to install, repair or maintain a roof.
Insurance – Insurance is important because it protects you from liability and cost in the unlikely event that something bad happens during your roofing project. As a commercial roof construction expert, we strongly suggest only choosing fully-insured companies like us for your project. We have insurance because we want our customers to feel secure during their commercial roofing project.
Certifications – Certifications are the other side of the coin from licenses. A certification is issued by a roofing manufacturer to guarantee that a roofing company knows how to properly render their services. Certified contractors have proven that they can perfectly repair, install and maintain the roofing products of their chosen manufacturers. A certified contractor can also provide stronger manufacturer warranties for their customers as well.
Experience – Experienced contractors can provide you with better service because they know how to anticipate and prevent common commercial roofing problems. You can trust them not to make mistakes during their installations. They also know which commercial roofing systems to recommend for certain building types because of their many years of working on roofs. Lastly, an experienced contractor can also provide you with plenty of references and testimonials.
