The roofing industry is a booming one. In recent years, it has been growing at a rate of 6% per year which means that the demand for contractors in this field will continue to grow as well. One way to get ahead of the competition when you are looking for roofers or commercial roofing services is to make sure that you know what qualities and qualifications they should have before hiring them. There are four things that every contractor needs to be qualified for!
- Roofers should be licensed, bonded, and insured.
- They need to provide you with a warranty for their workmanship for a minimum of ten years, or in some cases 25 years!
- The roofer they are using on your commercial building needs to have the proper knowledge about roofs so that they can answer any questions you may have about them.
- Make sure that all materials used by the Roofing Contractor correspond with the manufacturer’s recommendations and specifications.
Roofers should be licensed, bonded, and insured.
This is a legal requirement for roofing contractors because it protects you as the homeowner from any bad workmanship or dishonesty that may come with these professionals. Quality roofers are also motivated to go above and beyond your expectations in order to get repeat business!
Insurance protects both the homeowner and roofing company in case of any accidents that might happen on the job site. The contractor needs to have a roofing license from the state they are operating in as well as liability and workers compensation insurance. This is for both them and their employees. It also protects you, the homeowner! You want someone who takes safety seriously so you don’t end up with any problems to come time to collect on your insurance claim or when it comes time to pay out wages if an injury occurs on-site at your home while they were contracted by you. The more coverage they can provide, the better because there will always be something that might occur unexpectedly during such a large project like installing new shingles or repairing leaks around chimneys or skylights which may result in some unforeseen expense. It’s better to be safe than sorry!

The roofing company should also have a guarantee that their work will not leak for the next ten years. You don’t want your newly installed roof to be leaking just two months later! It happens more often than you might think, and it is extremely frustrating when this does happen because of all the extra time and money spent on installing a new roof only to find out there was an issue with installation or some other problem they missed during inspection.
This is a pretty tough warranty to meet, but it gives you peace of mind in knowing that if something were to happen within the next decade and they are unable to fix it for some reason (maybe because they went out of business), then someone else will come in and fix their mistake.
The roofer they are using on your commercial building needs to have the proper knowledge about roofs so that they can answer any questions you may have about them.
The roofer they are using on your commercial building needs to have the proper knowledge about roofs so that they can answer any questions you may have. They should also be able to prove it by listing all of their certifications and applicable licensing in order to get a quality roof installed for you, which will hopefully last for more than ten years without needing maintenance or repairs.
This is crucial because each year a company’s reputation is affected by how many problem-free projects they complete that year. If someone hires them and starts having problems after installation, there could be consequences like lawsuits against the company if the problems aren’t fixed appropriately. It might not seem like such importance at first glance but it really does matter what kind of services
Make sure that all materials used by the Roofing Contractor correspond with the manufacturer's recommendations and specifications.
This is important because the roofing material that you choose will affect how easy it is to maintain your roof, as well as its lifespan. There are many different types of materials available for roofs and not all may be right for your location or budget. In order to make a decision on what type of materials you should use with your roof project, contact an experienced contractor before making any decisions about which material options would work best for you.
