1. What Are the Problem Spots on My Roof?
You are most likely not a roofing expert, so you won’t know the exact reasons why your roof has failed you. By going with an experienced contractor that specializes in commercial roofing, you can easily get accurate answers.
Your roofing professional will be able to tell you where the weak and vulnerable spots are on your type of roof. This is also a great way to get an idea of how well this particular contractor understands your predicament.
2. Which Trade Association Do You Belong to?
Most commercial roofing contractors belong to a local trade and professional association. Reputable companies may even hold multiple memberships and affiliations with these associations. While this may impact your job in a second-hand way, going with someone that belongs to specific organizations tells a lot about a contractor.
In order to even be accepted into these associations, specific business requirements need to be met. Proof of organization involvement shows that your contractor is dedicated to their craft and could be the right person for the job.
3. What Does Your Warranty Look Like?
Different types of warranties mean different things to people. If you want to make sure that your roof repair or replacement is covered properly by your standards, ask your contractor what their warranty entails.
Look out for:
- Warranty length
- If it is manufacturer guaranteed
- If there are any loopholes that you should be concerned with
While shopping around, do some research on warranties and familiarize yourself with the basics so that you don’t go into this experience blind.
4. How Well Are Your Workers Trained on the Repair You are Quoting?
You don’t just want anyone working on your industrial roof. After all, it is the one thing that separates your expensive machinery and valuables from the elements. After you have decided on what it is that needs to be done, find out how well their workers are trained to repair the job that they are quoting.
5. Can You Provide Photo Documentation of Repairs?
Your roof isn’t going to be pristine forever. Therefore, it is important that you ask your contractor to provide you with photos of where your roof’s problems are for future reference. After all, you never know where the company that worked on your roof will be in the next 10-15 years.
