If you’ve decided to install a new roof on your commercial property, it’s crucial that you do plenty of research before selecting your roofing company. After all, when making such a big change and dramatic investment to your business, it’s wise to ensure everything’s likely to go to plan.

Here are just a few things to think about when choosing a roofing company.

Seek recommendations

Do you know anyone that has had a new roof fitted? If so, find out if they’re willing to recommend their roofing company. Ask whether they had a positive experience, enquire about prices and don’t forget to pay their commercial property a visit to see if it’s the type of thing you’re looking for.

Request a quote

Ask two or three contractors for a quote so you can compare prices, but don’t make your decision based on prices alone. The cheapest option isn’t always the best option, so it’s wise to take other factors into account such as experience, reviews and estimated quality.

Find out if you need planning permission

As a property owner, it’s your responsibility to determine whether planning permission is required before any work commences. If you hire a roofing company before obtaining planning permission, you may be forced to stop the work mid-way through the project or face legal repercussions.

Ask for everything in writing

Before parting with your money, ask for everything in writing, from the quoted price to details of the work to be completed. While most roofing consultants are reliable and trustworthy, there’ll always be the occasional dishonest company that will inflate prices before the job is complete or fail to deliver on verbal promises.
