Commercial Roofing: How To Choose a Good Contractor
When it comes to choosing a reputable Fort Worth commercial roofing company, experience matters. Let’s have a look at some of the reasons why.
If a company presents as reputable, it is because they have years of satisfied clients to keep their campaign alive. This takes times, and time is the truest measure of reliability. Look for client testimonials on the company website, research the company online and ask your friends, neighbors and colleagues if the name rings a bell. The more you can dig up, the longer they are apt to have been serving their community.
Quality of Service
All businesses have the potential for growth, but it takes a long time for a businesses to grow enough capital to buy into speed and proficiency. The same applies to roofing companies both young and old. The longer a commercial roofing company has been in business, the more monies they can flush back into their infrastructure, ensuring quality of service.
Knowledge of Variables
The more experience a company has, the less problems you will have. Your roof may have been constructed with a particular ventilation system in place, one which will cease to work should your provider use the wrong material. An intricate knowledge of ventilation, weatherproofing and geometry is required to ensure that you don’t spend more money buying out of a job than you did buying into it.
Contracting and communication go hand in hand. The provider needs to know what the client wants. The client needs to know what their options are. This communication is essential to forming lasting professional relationships, and it takes years to master the skill. Experienced providers will find ways to reduce the costs of labor and materials for their clients while securing future work.
Insurance and Licenses
Experienced commercial roofing companies know the importance of being licensed and insured. Fly-by-night roofing companies many time are unlicensed and uninsured or underinsured. These type of commercial roofing companies will not last. Hiring a properly insured and licensed commercial roofer will give you peace of mind knowing that you have hired a professional.
Fort Worth commercial roofing companies, with years of experience under their belt, can offer warranties on their work. These warranties show you that the commercial roofing contractor stands by their work.
We live in a time when there are many unscrupulous contractors looking to take advantage of unsuspecting building owners. Make sure before signing on the dotted line that you do your due diligence to find out exactly who will be on your roof.
Experience You Can Trust
When it comes to commercial roofing in Fort Worth, experience may be the most valuable factor when looking for a roofer. Old Pro has experience installing nearly every type of commercial roof. Whether you want a TPO roof to better insulate your flat roof and reduce energy costs or you need rare vintage tiles to preserve the beauty of your building and extend the life of a historical roof, we’ve done it all.
A Few Examples of Commercial Roofs We’ve Installed:
1st Eye Care, Fort Worth – we installed TPO on 1st Eye Care’s Fort Worth office, saving the company money with lower energy bills and preventing headaches of constant repairs to keep the roof free from leaks. They have been leak free since we installed the roof and are enjoying a cooler office!
Dallas Fire Station 11 – the story of our involvement in the rejuvenation of Fire Station 11 in Dallas is worth a read on it’s own. This building is well over one hundred years old and the roof tiles were in desperate need of repair. In 1985 the fire station under went $600,000 in renovations to become a Historical Landmark but the roof was not part of the effort. We were happy to hunt down the rare tiles that adorned the roof, helping return this magnificent structure to it’s original glory. (read the story here…)
