How to Choose a Good Commercial Roofing Company
Avoid the bad guys by taking steps to eliminate the hiring of disreputable firms.
Sleeping Better with a Good Roof over Your Business
Nothing is worse than a bad purchase. We save our money for that great looking television set or new jacket and we head out to the stores. In today’s world, we even buy online which can make a bad purchase all the more annoying. Everyone will buy a defective item at some point in their lives. Those items worth a few dollars are disappointing but not the end of the world. However, major purchases are a very different story. A little homework can save thousands of dollars on purchases like a new roof.
Finding a Company You Can Recommend
One of the quickest ways to find a reputable roofing company is by asking around. If you have friends in business, ask them if they know someone good in the area. If that is not an option, then try cold calling local businesses and asking if they can recommend anyone. Whether you are in Sterling Heights or Bloomfield Hills, someone will be able to point you in the direction of a good commercial roofing company.
Try to Stay Local
It is wise to use a roofing contractor who is within your local area and can be reached easily by car. If any issues do arise, then you will have some peace of mind. With an out of area company, you may not have the time to travel to see them. If you are pushing them to finish, then it will be annoying if your phone calls are ignored or go straight to voicemail.
Meet the Boss and His Workers
In meeting people, we immediately get a good or bad feeling about them. Their appearance tells us a lot about them before they even speak one word. Do they carry themselves well and have authority? Although it is popular to rely on email and the internet in today’s modern world, with high price items it is always best to meet the supplier in person. It will also establish a positive working relationship.
Make a Checklist
Before meeting the roofing company, make a large list of things you need to discuss with them. This will include some of the following:
- Do they have up to date paperwork?
- How many workers will they employ on your project?
- Can they offer the details of previous customers so you can check their credentials?
Always be prepared and look for any issues which could set the repairs back. Remember that time is money and should be saved wherever possible.
