Tips for Choosing A Commercial Roofing Contractor

Installing commercial roofing requires a substantial financial investment, and the value of the investment depends a great deal on the quality of the roofing company you choose. If your building needs a new roof, do not finalize a contract with any roofing contractor before considering the following factors:

Business location

Hiring a commercial roofing company that lacks a permanent office space or has a permanent location outside your region is financially risky since most companies perform the best work in the area where their customer base is located. Out of town companies -- particularly those that do not have a permanent location -- have been known to perform shoddy work, and then leave town.

Area of specialty

Some contractors of commercial roofing in Orlando specialize in working with certain types of roofing systems and not others. Hire a contractor who specializes in the roof installation you need. In addition to stating that it specializes in the roof installation you need; the company should be able to show examples of how the same installation was performed for other building owners.

Customer references

You can never speak to enough customer references before you decide which roofing company to hire, but be sure to talk to at least six of them, and ask them important, straightforward questions, such as:

  • Was the project finished on schedule?
  • Was the bid increased after the project commenced?
  • Is the roof still performing as expected?
  • Were there problems with the company's workers?

Because commercial roofs are designed to last for years, it is best to speak with references whose roofs were installed at least three years ago.

Licensing, bonding, and insurance

Always choose a commercial roofing company that is licensed, bonded, and insured. If the company has a license, it means that it is authorized to perform commercial roof maintenance and repair tasks in a particular state. Bonding compensates you for stolen property. Insurance compensates you for property damage and injuries; it prevents the company's workers from filing a negligence claim against you if they are injured while working on your roof.

To determine whether the roofing contractors you are considering are licensed, you can simply contact your state licensing board. To discover whether they are bonded and insured, you can ask for proof of bonding and insurance, and then contact the provider(s) of the policies as an added safety measure.

Contractor's warranty

The quality of roofing material is ensured by a manufacturer's warranty, but the quality of a roofing job is ensured by a contractor's warranty. If your roof has problems that result from poor installation, the latter stipulates that the company must repair it at no cost to you. Because a reputable company always offers this warranty, you should not consider hiring a contractor who does not offer it.


A roofing company can significantly impact the quality of your commercial roofing job and whether the customer is well protected financially during and after the project. If you need to accept bids from roofing contractors for a commercial roofing job, remember the tips above as you make your decision.
