Are you one of the many Colorado business owners looking for a new roofing company? Before you hire anyone, make sure you ask these five roofing questions for commercial roofing companies.

1.) How Much Commercial Roofing Experience Do you Have?

When you put your trust in a roofing company, do you want a crew with little commercial experience taking on such a big project?


Not all roofing companies are made equally. Before hiring anyone, ask about their experience, specializations, and ask to see examples of prior work.

This will save you time and money. It will always save you from having a potential headache on your hands in the future.

At Columbine Roofing, our team has decades of experience installing and maintaining commercial roofs!

2.) What Roofing System Do you Recommend for My Area and Building?

Believe it or not – there are many types of commercial roofing systems. The best commercial roof for your business may be drastically different from even a business a few blocks away.

When interviewing roofing companies, ask about which systems will work best for your roof specifically.

From draining to venting, and important safety measures, the right roofing team will have a plethora of recommendations for you. Expect these to get even more specific after an inspection.

After conducting a roof inspection, our team of experts will make the recommendations will believe will best serve your business.

3.) What Fire Prevention Safety Measures Do you Install and Consider?

More so than ever before, wildfires are impacting Colorado home and business owners. On the other hand, business owners, especially in certain industries (restaurants and manufacturing), need to consider the risk of fire.

Asking about fire prevention safety measures does a few things:

  • It ensures you’re getting the best roof for your business
  • Certain types of roofs and measures can be taken AND may reduce your insurance costs.

4.) Can You Make My Commercial Roof More Energy-Efficient?

When you’re a business owner, every expense matters.

As a whole, Colorado has been steering head-first into the realm of sustainability. Did you know that your roof can significantly impact your energy costs?

Some roofing systems are more energy-efficient than others. If you’re interested in making your building more energy-efficient, every reputable roofing company should have ideas and answers for you.

We are always dedicated to providing energy efficient and cost-saving options to our clients. Ask us anytime about how we go about approaching energy efficiency.

5.) Is Your Colorado Business Licensed & Insured?

Before anyone does work on your home, roofing, or otherwise, make sure they’re license and insured.

This formal distinction protects you, the business owner from less than acceptable work. Additionally, it protects the crew when they’re working on your home, helping to protect you from liability.

Always ask this question, always.
