Here are some of our tips on finding the right roofing contractor for your project.

Get everything in writing

Every job needs to have a written quote so that you can plan financially and avoid hidden costs. From estimates to timelines, you should always be able to reference paperwork if any issues arise, and a written quote helps you both stay on the same page. Of course, this price may change a bit, but it’s always nice to know a ballpark of your costs. Have the roofer include the payment agreement and any insurance coverage needed.

Ask for certifications and insurance

Trustworthy roofing contractors will have all of the proper licenses required by local building authorities. It’s also important that you’re working with a contractor who’s insured. You don’t want to be liable for any mistakes made on your property during the commercial roof repair process or be responsible for any injuries that happen on the job site.

Meet them in person

It’s always best to meet your potential roofer face to face so you can talk things over in person. You can also ask important questions and get a feel for the way they work. If you decide to give them the contract, you may feel more comfortable getting updates and reports about the status of your project, having met them first.

Agree on a timeline

It’s important to outline a proper timeline so that both parties know what to expect. Of course, delays can happen, but setting expectations can help keep the project running smoothly.

Talk through milestones, estimated completion dates and any prep work needed before installation, such as ordering materials. You’ll also want to know when you can schedule a final run-through to make sure everything is to your liking.
