Key Considerations When Choosing Commercial Roofing Contractors in Toronto
For the majority of commercial property owners/managers in Toronto, it is quite possible that the contact information for a local roofing contractor is on file in their mobile phone or computer or on a business card among a stack of business cards in their desk drawer. This is likely the information for the roofing company that installed the initial roof or that was contracted to do some repair work, which in turn makes it convenient to call them if and when any roof installation or repair services are needed again.
But convenience should not be the primary factor when choosing among the commercial roofing contractors in Toronto; commercial roofing expertise and experience, the quality of their workmanship, and their reliability should hold more influence in separating these companies and thus lead to the right choice, not just the most recent/most familiar one.
When that time comes to replace or repair commercial roofing, the business or property owner will unquestionably want to have the matter resolved as soon and as efficiently as possible. This can add an element of self-imposed pressure to hire a roofing contractor who can get the job done with the least delay; it can also often result in a rash decision.
Though there are several commercial roofing companies in Toronto that can be identified through online searches or in print directories, finding the right contractor, i.e. one that is both skilled and trustworthy, can prove more difficult than a business owner/property manager might anticipate. So how do owners/managers go about the selection process? It takes an investment of time and effort to investigate several local roofing contractors.
While this may at first appear to conflict with a need or desire to get the roof repaired or replaced as quickly as possible, the consequences of making a poor decision can be quite substantial and long-lasting, and unfortunately not in any positive light. Accordingly, the commercial roofing contractors at Can-Sky Roofing in Toronto offer the following advice to help businesses choose the right roofing company to address/satisfy their immediate and long-term roof-related needs.
Commercial property owners should begin by creating a short-list of three or four roofing contractors that will merit further consideration; resources available to help develop such a list might include:
- Online searches for commercial roofing companies in Toronto
- Requesting independent impressions from other local businesses
- Websites that gather client feedback on contractors (e.g. HomeStars)
Once that short-list has been prepared, the property owner/manager will need to assess each company on their individual qualities; this can be accomplished by contacting them directly to learn more about their respective businesses. To that end, here are some tips i.e. questions that should be asked to ultimately identify the best contractor for the job:
- Experience – how long have they been in the local commercial roofing business?
- Qualifications – are they a licensed contractor with verifiable contact information?
- Estimates – do they give written quotes for review/approval before work is begun?
- Safety – have all onsite staff been fully trained and qualified for working at heights?
- Crews – is all work done by their own teams or do they employ any sub-contractors?
- Certifications – do they have manufacturer approval to install/repair their products?
- Warranties – are all materials and workmanship guaranteed and done so in writing?
- Insurance Coverage – do they hold valid workplace and general liability insurance?
- References – are they openly willing to provide feedback from previous jobs/clients?
A roof plays a significant role in safeguarding the structure below as well as its occupants and/or those who visit tenants or frequent the various businesses; therefore, although researching commercial roofing contractors may appear to be a time-consuming process, it is also a valuable investment in personal safety and in the protection of property.
