-Look for a commercial roofing company that is located in your area. Make sure they have a physical address and a local phone number. You want to know where they are located and how to communicate with them. Local roofers “live and die” by their reputation and most go the extra mile to give you five-star service.

-Make sure that they are fully licensed and inured and are familiar with the local regulations and laws in your area.

-Check with your local consumer protection agency and Better Business Bureau to make sure they do not have unresolved complaints. Although it is not out of the ordinary for an occasional dispute to occur, you do want to make sure your contractor resolves them professionally and in a timely manner.

-When interviewing potential roofers in person ask:

a)How much experience they have as well as how long they have been in business.

b) Ask about their experience with your type of job. Ask for a list of references and referrals and call some of them to see how good or bad their experience was.

c) Ask to see the roofer’s certificate of insurance. Make sure that their liability and worker’s compensation insurances are in force. Asking them to have their insurance company mail you a copy of their insurances is a good idea.

d) Ask for any industry certificates and what continuing education programs the company has competed.

e) Ask about the crew and how experienced they are.

f) Always ask and make sure the quality of the roofing material is discussed and that you fully understand the process that will take place…ask until you understand.

g) Ask about how the job will be inspected upon completion to insure the quality promised is delivered.

h) Ask about how changes to the scope of work will be handled and ask for some samples of changes that could occur and what the range of pricing would be. Example, they take the old roof off and find an area of the sub-roof needs to be replaced. An experienced contractor should be able to give you a range of the pricing.

i) Ask about the warranties, both the manufacturer’s on the materials and the contractor’s on the labor, and get them in writing.

j) Make sure you understand everything and feel comfortable with the firm. Proposals from different contractors will vary in price. Make sure you can compare “apples to apples.” Ask questions as to why this expense is what it is, and ask until you fully understand.
