Recently an acquaintance was pointing out the poor craftsmanship on a project that was constructed just a few years ago. Loose tiles and poorly fitted finishes were starting to show. He made a statement that should reverberate throughout the construction industry but often falls on deaf ears: “You can’t hire your brother-in-law to do the job then toss him some materials and a how-to manual.”
Certainly, relationships, industry references, quality and reliability percolate to the top of the selection criteria, but in the commercial arena where risks are often measured in 7 figures, the prequalification process for a roofing contractor or service provider should be more purposeful and deliberate.
So what are the criteria for selecting a qualified roofing contractor?
The first step is to identify reputable roofing contractors that service your area. Roofing system manufacturers and industry related organizations are able to provide recommendations that you may find useful.
