09 Aug SELECTING A COMMERCIAL ROOFING CONTRACTOR
SELECTING A COMMERCIAL ROOFING CONTRACTOR
Selecting a commercial roofing contractor can be stressful. Property owners are not sure about the best way to determine if a roofing company is qualified in complex commercial roofing systems. We are here to help give you a little guidance on selecting a commercial roofing contractor that will provide quality workmanship backed by a solid manufacturer warranty.
Are they properly licensed and insured?
The very first step in selecting a commercial roofing contractor is to verify their credentials! Request proof that they are properly licensed in your state with an active license.
Tennessee Issues a General Contractor License and Roofing License
In the State of TN, a commercial roofing contractor would need a General Contractor license approved for the appropriate financial limit and/or a BC-21 roofing license.
Verify General Liability and Work Comp Insurance!
Property owners should always request a written COI confirming General Liability and Work Comp coverage! As a rule of thumb on commercial roofing, the coverage limits should be a minimum of 1,000,000,00. This is so critical to have proof of insurance in hand before you allow work to begin on your commercial property!
Are they Certified by Commercial Roofing Manufacturers?
Business owners should never assume a roofing contractor is certified with commercial roofing manufacturers. There is actually a very small percentage of roofing contractors that are certified to install commercial roofing systems! You should always insist on a commercial roofing contractor that has been vetted and certified by the commercial roofing manufacturer whose product you would like to install! Only Certified Installers Can Provide Manufacturer Warranties! Only certified installers can provide a manufacturer’s warranty that will guarantee that your roof will provide years of leak-free protection or will be repaired at no cost to you. Having a manufacturer’s warranty certifies your roof passed inspection by the manufacturer’s representative and met their strict guidelines.
Do They Offer Roofing Options?
Qualified commercial contractors will provide you with options for a roofing system that fits your style and your budget! A commercial roof replacement is expensive. This means there should be options for you to consider when selecting which roofing system fits your specific needs. A knowledgeable and reputable commercial roofing contractor will help guide you and give you options to consider.
Working with a fully licensed and certified commercial roofing contractor minimizes the risk! Insist on working with a commercial roofer who has been vetted by the manufacturer and is able to stand behind their warranty! Our commercial roof installation is also backed by a NDL warranty with Carlise Commercial Roofing Manufacturing! This means your roof is guaranteed by the manufacturer and not just MidSouth Construction! Why trust your roof replacement with anyone else when you can hire the best!
Do They Offer Emergency Services
Established roofing contractors offer emergency services! MidSouth Construction understands that roof leaks, fire damage and water damage do not always happen during business hours! Our professional staff is always here to offer emergency services for storm damage, roof leaks, board up services, and water extraction! A valuable roofing contractor will be able to handle your situation from start to finish from emergency services to the final repair has been completed.
Can The Contractor Handle ALL Aspects of your Project?
Not all commercial roofers are experienced in other types of construction. Property managers agree it is ideal to have one point of contact when working on a commercial project. MidSouth Construction has a staff that is qualified to install or repair any type of roofing system. In addition, we have skilled artisans to install unique copper accents, commercial gutter systems, windows, ceilings, fire walls, masonary, painting, or even flooring!
Do They Have A Written Contract and Provide Estimates
Never work with a roofing contractor that does not have a written contract! For insurance claims we have a simple contingency agreement that clearly demonstrates the only cost to the property owner is their deductible. On cash sales we have a clearly written contract that will provide a detailed scope or work and payment terms.
Check Out Our Portfolio!
Our portfolio even includes old churches with plaster restoration, water restoration, historical church steeples, and state of the art flat roofing systems. When you hire MidSouth Construction we can handle as much or as little of your commercial roofing and restoration project as you need
Is the lowest bidder the best value?
A commercial roof is a large investment and property owners are looking for the absolute best value. However, the lowest bidder isn’t always the best value in commercial roofing! Don’t be tempted to go with the lowest bid. It isn’t uncommon for roofers to cut corners in order to have the lowest bid. If you obtain multiple bids for a commercial roof – make sure you are comparing apples to apples by requiring a detailed scope of work! Also, insisting on a manufacturer’s warranty will help ensure a quality roofing system will be installed.
Don’t Rely on Fancy Ads!
We live in a day and age where expensive marketing and flashy ads overwhelm us at every turn. From social media to television, companies can create any persona that they want. While this may be a great way to find a good roofing company, make sure that check out their credentials! Call organizations like your local BBB and read online reviews from third-party sources. A review obtained from a third-party company like Guild Quality or direct with the manufacturer goes a long way in verifying the reputation of a company. Customers realize that no company can please 100% of their customers. But when you see a theme of unhappy customers or complaints then there is a problem you may want to steer clear of!
Rely on References & Reviews!
Every roofing company will say they are the best, but a satisfied customer is proof of that statement. An easy place to start researching a roofing company is to read online reviews that are available. Ask for a list of past clients who you may contact or photographs of some completed project. Property owners can also ask other businesses in your area or inquire in professional organizations you may be involved with such as IFMA. It’s always a good idea to inquire about what type of experience another business owner had with a company in order to get an accurate idea of what your experience will be like.
Ask Questions – Expect Answers!
Be confident in the roofing company you hire and the product you will be receiving. Often this means asking questions about the products being used and the company you may hire. Property owners should research the product that is being pitched as the best option! Ask how long the roofing contractor has been in business! And, make sure that you ALWAYS insist on working with a commercial roofer that has been in business for a minimum of five years.
