The top commercial roofing contractors in NJ succeed by doing things that certain competitors can’t or won’t. First, they offer their valued commercial clients every roofing service they’ll ever need.
Second, they offer top-notch warranties, and, third, they carry the right insurance. Any commercial roofing specialist that you work with should do all three of these things to ensure a successful roofing project and the longevity of your business relationship.
1. Offer Comprehensive Roofing Services
Ideally, you want to cultivate a long-term business relationship with a reliable, reputable commercial roofing contractor – one that will always be there for you whether you need minor maintenance or a full commercial roof replacement.
Should a severe storm lead you to suspect roof damage, you don’t want to suddenly have to scramble to find a quality commercial roofing contractor. That kind of last-minute effort is a recipe for expensive delays and unwanted surprises.
Instead, choose a full-service roofing specialist who can handle every roofing need, including:
- Periodic inspections
- Routine maintenance
- All repairs, minor to major
- Emergency services
- Insurance work
- Roof replacements
- Special qualifications
Also, the best commercial roofing specialists will typically be certified to install roofing systems manufactured by leaders in the industry. Ideally, they’ll also have a design team capable of properly customizing roofing systems to meet the unique requirements of every commercial structure.
Less capable contractors may attempt a “one size fits all” approach to commercial installations. Standardized installations often do not address unique roofing challenges the way truly customized roofing systems do.
Also, top contractors typically have their own certified roof inspectors who are qualified to detect every kind of roofing problem imaginable.
It is also reassuring to work with a roofing contractor with a long history of successfully serving commercial clients in your area. Finally, a contractor that offers fair and transparent pricing builds trust over the course of a long-term business relationship.
2. Offer the Best Warranties
Many of the top commercial roofing manufacturers like Carlisle SynTec and Duro-Last also generous warranties against defects in materials and workmanship. They work in close collaboration with a select group of certified roofers capable of installing their roof systems to spec.
Their high-quality warranties demonstrate the confidence they have in both their products and the certified contractors they entrust to perform commercial roof installations.
As you compare warranties, distinguish between manufacturer and contractor warranties, and between materials-only warranties and warranties that include both materials and labor.
The best commercial roofing warranties cover both materials and labor for lengthy periods of time. Major roof work not covered by a warranty can really impact your bottom line.
Avoid surprise expenses and enjoy the peace-of-mind that comes with a top-notch manufacturer’s warranty. Also, although contractor warranties may supplement manufacturer warranties in some cases, relying too much on contractor warranties can be risky when they are offered by upstart roofers who may not still be around when you experience a roofing issue.
3. Have the Right Insurance
As a business owner or manager, it’s crucial to avoid complications when the time comes for a roof replacement. One way to avoid surprises is to commit to working with a roofing contractor who has the right insurance.
Contractor’s liability coverage in New Jersey is often $1 million, but this may not be adequate in some cases. That’s why CRS invests in policy premiums that provide a full $10 million in liability insurance, 10 times that amount. A roofer with inadequate liability insurance could possibly lead to a claim being made against your own business liability policy.
Workers compensation insurance
Commercial roofing contractors in NJ must also carry proper workers compensation insurance that covers injuries sustained on the job. The cost of such insurance may tempt some roofers to forego coverage or to let policies lapse. This leaves clients potentially vulnerable to claims against their own insurance policies as well.
Finally, insurance issues can get more complicated when a commercial roofing company uses subcontractors. CRS only sends experienced employees to install its commercial roofing systems.
They work under close supervision, ensuring that every detail of your installation will be completed in accordance with manufacturer recommendations.
Identify a roofing contractor that does these things, and you’ll improve your chances of having a good experience. Ultimately, you want to establish a long-term business relationship with a commercial roofing specialist you can count on no matter what comes up.
