How to Choose the Right Contractor for Your Commercial Project
As a commercial property owner, maintaining your property and buildings is important. When your commercial roof has been damaged, you will need to hire a contractor to make much-needed repairs. Here are some tips for choosing the right contractor for your commercial project.
The first thing you want to do is determine whether the roofing company is reputable. Ask for their license, check that they are insured, and ask if they have referrals from other businesses in the area. The license will tell you that they are certified to do the work they promised. Insurance is also important for any contractor to have. They should at least have liability and worker’s comp, which ensures that you are not liable for damages to property or bodily injury while they are repairing or installing your roof.
Testimonials or reviews are also a great source of information to determine if a contractor is right for your project. They can tell you if the company is nice to work with or if projects with that contractor are a hassle. Check how recently they were reviewed and for any patterns of discontent from past clients. Google reviews and social media reviews are a couple of the best places to find relevant reviews and testimonials from past clients. You can also ask other commercial businesses who they might recommend.
Get a Detailed Estimate
Most contractors will want to see the project before giving you a quote. Let them take a look at your project needs, but don’t expect an estimate right away. Contractors should take the information they collect back to the office and construct a detailed estimate out of that information. You can ask specifically for things to be itemized so you can compare estimates from other contractors.
