a flat commercial roof, commercial roofer in Orlando, FLIf you’re a business owner, you know how costly exterior repairs can be. Roof repairs can really cut into your profit, but since the roof is the most important part of the building, it needs to get repaired ASAP. There are also plenty of fraudsters that want to take your money upfront, then skip town without doing the work they promised. We want you to get the very best commercial roofing in Orlando, FL, so here are some questions you should ask before sealing the deal.

Question 1: Are you licensed and insured?

Professional roofers should be licensed and insured, to protect themselves, and you and your property, should something go wrong. Ask for their license number if you feel like someone is being dishonest. You can look it up on your state’s licensing board web site.

Question 2: Can you provide references?

If a commercial roofer can’t point to anyone who would give them a good reference, watch out! They might be skilled, but they might not have the amount of experience you are looking for. You should also look online for customer reviews and any complaints filed with the Better Business Bureau.

Question 3: Do you provide free estimates?

Good roofers know that they have to earn your business. For example, we are always glad to take the time to come out, look at your roof, and provide a free estimate before work begins. If a roofer wants to charge you for an estimate, or if they won’t come out to assess your roof in a timely manner, choose someone with better customer care.

Residential roofing and commercial roofing have some overlap, but you’re going to want to hire someone who has plenty of experience dealing with commercial roofing materials and techniques. If you come across a new commercial roofer, you could give them a chance if they have proof that they do good work.

Question 5: Do you guarantee your work?

A confident roofer will guarantee their work, period. If they don’t, it could be a sign that they take shortcuts on their work, or use cheap materials. At Weathershield, we guarantee that you’ll have a leak-free roof for at least 10 years, at no additional cost. The product manufacturers also guarantee their materials.
