Whenever a rather treacherous storm rolls through, you will almost always run across an unfortunate story of someone of was in need of roof repairs being taken advantage of by someone who presented themselves as a professional and expert roof contractor. While, here at Longhorn, our trade is commercial roofing, the following five questions can be applied to any trade or contractor other than just roofing contractors that provide disaster relief services.
Are they insured and licensed? – Before hiring a roofing contractor that specializes in commercial roofing in Houston, TXmake sure that their credentials are current and in good standing. Make sure that you get a copy of their certificate of insurance, too. Inspect the insurance to make sure that it provides adequate coverage should ever a claim arise.
What is their safety record? – All professional commercial roofing companies should put safety first. Most will also provide routine OSHA safety training for their crews and it is wise to inspect and make sure the companies EMR, otherwise known as Experience Modification Rates, matches any verbal assurance that they give. A solid EMR history with an average rating under 1 is a good indication that the company prioritizes and creates a safe working environment.
Specific Commercial Roofing Quote – A roofing contractor will not be able to provide you with a reliable scope of work without having a complete understanding and technical analysis of your buildings roofing system. Before you receive a quote, a genuine professional company will survey the building’s roof using state of the art technology such as infrared moisture scans. Without a complete survey it will only be guess work on the estimate.
Communication and Accountability – Unprofessional contractors might make an appearance twice. Once, on the first day of the project and the on the last day to deliver the bill. A reliable and professional roofing contractor will communicate often, be at the ready for unforeseen problems, and have readily available solutions when problems do arise. This is possible because the job sites from a reliable and professional roofing contractor will be overseen by on-site supervisors who ensure that the process will go as smoothly and efficiently as possible for the benefit of the customer.
Available Resources – Even if the roofing contractor you are seriously considering is able to stand up to the first four questions, they might not be able to take up the task that you need done. The very last question you should ask a roofing contractor that you are potentially hiring is to find out if they are equipped to finish the project you need completed in a timely manner.
Most of the time we will have the ability to spend the time needed to investigate and determine whether or not a contractor is the perfect fit for a job needed. However, times where natural disaster strike, many commercial building owners and facility managers will find themselves forced to make quick and decisive decisions. It is during these times of crisis, where questions like the ones above can come in handy in order to provide clarify and precise answers to what matters in determining whether a commercial roofing contractor is up to the task or not.
