Experience is Key
One of the first factors you should consider when searching for a contractor is experience. While some inexperienced contractors do offer discounts on price, quality is often sacrificed. When you own a business, you know how important quality is. If your commercial property is not inviting and well-designed, customers will have a poor impression of the company. If you have roofing leaks, damaged walls and ceilings, it illustrates a lack of attention to detail and poor image. When you choose a service contractor with years of experience, the contractor will offer the highest quality workmanship regardless of whether you need a new installation, a replacement, or a repair.
Is the Contractor Fully Insured?
Once you’ve created a list of roofing contractors from research, you should shorten the list of candidates a bit more before you start requesting service quotes. Another important factor you should consider is whether or not the contractor has insurance. General liability insurance will cover several different types of claims if the workers accidentally cause damage to another area of the building. Insurance will also pay someone for their injuries should they be harmed on the work site. If you choose a contractor that does not have insurance, you may end up in a settlement that can cost you thousands.
