As a building manager or business owner, roof repairs, replacements or newly constructed roofs can be an overwhelming project. There are so many questions that come up when looking for the right commercial roofer to help you with your project, and you want to make sure you’re getting the highest quality work for the best price. At Boak & Sons, our commercial roofers know that this can be a difficult decision to make, so we put a list together of the top five things to look for in a commercial roofer that prove they’re a trustworthy contractor!
- Permanent address and landline phone number.
If a company is providing a cell phone as their main contact number, that can be a red flag. An established commercial roofing company should have a landline phone number as well as a physical location that you can visit and meet with a real person.
- Local reputation.
Do some research! Check for Facebook and Google reviews as well as reviews from the Better Business Bureau. If the commercial roofers you’re looking into has bad reviews, don’t take them lightly! Don’t be afraid to ask your local businesses who they went through and what their experiences were. Referrals area great way to find a name you can trust.
- Logos, phone numbers, etc. on company vehicles.
Commercial roofing companies often have vehicles that their employees take to job sites. If you see a truck driving around with its company branding, that company is proud to display their name for a reason!
- Contracts with no upfront deposits required.
Commercial roofers asking for upfront down payments is a huge red flag. You should never have to pay for work that hasn’t been done yet. Be wary of trusting a company that asks for a down payment! Many business owners have been taken advantage of by being promised a cheaper rate if they pay a certain amount upfront.
- If it’s not Boak, don’t fix it!
