Key Questions to Ask Any Roofing Contractor You Consider Hiring
Viewing roofing contractors as a commodity instead of seeking out skilled tradesmen can be a costly mistake. Shoddy work and low-cost materials can add up to higher maintenance costs and more headaches over the long term if you simply choose the cheapest vendor.
When searching for a commercial roofing contractor, be aware that all providers are not equal. You’ll save more in the long run by choosing a proven “performing contractor,” one who has maintained the highest documented levels of satisfied customers and percentages of roofs that never leak over many years.
1. How many years of experience do their employees possess?
There’s no substitute for longevity and loyalty. Two of our technicians have been with us for more than 30 years, and the other two have spent their entire careers in the roofing industry with DFW Urethane. Dedicated and experienced workers make for higher-quality results.
2. Is the contractor bonded?
DFW Urethane can bond jobs for up to $6 million. The only way to obtain bonding at this level is to have a proven track record of successful, problem-free jobs in your portfolio. DFW Urethane has excelled in delivering what we promise, which has earned us an impressive list of satisfied customers.
3. Do they use an outside roofing inspector when making their estimates?
A reputable contractor will include the services of an outside roofing inspector in their estimates. Doing this ensures that you receive the proper level of quality. DFW Urethane will gladly include the services of an outside inspector on any of our jobs.
4. What type of warranty comes with your new roof?
DFW Urethane is a manufacturer-preferred contractor. This means we can provide you with a written warranty directly from the manufacturer if desired, in addition to our own Leak-Proof Warranties.
5. Does the contractor have verifiable references?
Ask the contractor to show you 3 roofs that are at least 5 years old. If they can’t show you any, be wary! This is a red flag that you’re not getting an experienced, knowledgeable contractor who will provide long-term performance and value.
6. What kind of people employed by the contractor will be on your property?
All of DFW Urethane’s employees have undergone criminal background checks through a U.S. Department of Defense contractor and have been cleared to work. In addition, all of our employees are legal U.S. citizens.
7. What level of training have employees undergone?
At DFW Urethane, all employees receive extensive, ongoing training in house, and also participate in training provided by product manufacturers and industry associations, including Honeywell, BASF, Carlisle, Everest, Neogard, GE, and the Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance (SPFA).
