How do I Know I’m Hiring the Right Commercial Roofing Company?

There are a few things you can do to ease your mind when it comes to finding and hiring the right commercial roofing company.

First and foremost, read the reviews! Google is an excellent place to find reviews and discover the type of company you’re considering hiring.

Next, it’s always important to ask if the roofing company is licensed and insured. This protects your roof investment and ensures that the roofing crew and job site are protected and reputable in your area.

How Much Will a New Roof Cost?

There are a number of factors that impact the cost of a new commercial roof.

First and foremost, the size. Next, the materials chosen for insulation. With a commercial roof, there are a lot of things and materials that impact costs.

If you have a budget in mind, we recommend telling your roofing company what you’re aiming for. Many times, companies are willing to work with you to achieve the highest quality roof within your budget.

How Long with Installation Take?

These days, with the processes and technology available, commercial roofing installation is a rather quick process.

When you get an estimate, be sure to ask the project manager what the estimated timeline is for completion. If you have a target in mind, share it! If you have an event or holiday you need to work around, say it!

Do I Need to have Regular Roof Inspections?

There’s a misconception that commercial roofs don’t require the same regular inspections that residential roofs do.
